Life is Heavenly...

If you are here for my blog candy (Giant Flowers and Victorian Romance), click HERE. I will pick a winner tonight at 10 PM CST.

 I have been reading all of your responses as to why you blog.....and it reminds me of this "sisterhood" we have built in this cyberworld, that we all want the same things.  Friendship. Feedback. Comraderie. A way to stay connected to our friends and family. Your words about my blog and my family have been incredible heartwarming.  I am so appreciative of you!  I have been trying to visit each and every one of you....and I am a little more than half way through. I have realized how much we all like to receive feedback from others and how good it feels when someone says something nice. I am terrible many times at leaving comments for others. It isn't done intentionally, by any means, it's just life being busy and me trying to limit how much time I spend on the computer.......away from my family. 

My card today is a bit bright.  Happy.  It uses an image by Crafty Secrets, Little Blessings Creative Scraps,  and I've surrounded it with lots of pretties.  The Tattered Angels frame was painted in a pale blue, covered with glossy accents, and sprinkled with glitter.  The flower was cut using my Cricut and the Flower Shoppe Cartridge
I snuck a few hot pink flowers in there too! And a bit of seam binding and twine.

The dried flowers are by Prima and had been in my stash for a very long time. I was so glad to be able to incorporate them here! 
Thank you my friends for supporting me on this journey, and I promise to do my very best to return the favor!  Hugs to each and every one of you!
Be sure to check back tonight and I will post the winner of the two Cricut cartridges!
Have a great day my friends!

Love the pops of hot pink. What a beautiful card! I am amazed you were able to keep those dried flowers in your stash.....they'd be ground like flour at the bottom of my messy drawer within a week. ;)
