A quick post...

I am having to hurry up and get this blog rolling so that I can enter this card into the challenge blog. I forgot that this is Friday already and I made this card just for the two challenges that I am entering this card into. The other one is

When I saw those two posts, my thoughts just clicked and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I've been cleaning up my craft room AGAIN...still moving things around because I have added supplies and am having to reorganize my space. I love to organize and I like things very near me so that I don't have to hunt around when I need a particular item.

Anyway, I am very blessed to be able to shop around and buy new dies, etc. every now and then so that I feel like I have something new to work with. I always seem to be seeing something that I just "want"!!!

Anyway, here's my card:
The color of the card is actually red and so is the flower, but somehow I just couldn't get the color to come through. This is much more simple than I usually do, but I just really felt like this is all it needed.  Sometimes you just don't need much more.

Here's the deets:
The background paper is "Mariposa"
There's three different flowers put together.  They're from my stash.
The silver border around the sentiment is something I picked up a long time ago. They came in a pack and I have used these sparingly because I love them so much. challenge is to make a card with an uplifting sentiment and something silver. This challenge is to make a card with a sentiment and a 3D flower.

Hope you enjoy seeing my creation.
Please leave me a note...we all LOVE comments.



  1. Oh wow Elena this is beautiful! I love the silver frame and the beautiful flower! I don't know of anything more encouraging to say than that you are praying for someone! I seem to have to reorganize my space often as well... mainly because while I have a new room, not all the storage pieces are finished and I am having a hard time finding places that "work" for me!
