Celebrate Life

Hey there! Happy Wednesday to you! Another week is flying by. We are winding down for our school year. Then we gear up for Summer Camps. Oh joy! Anyone else excited for the Summer Break to come? I am looking forward to lots of creative time but the ugliness in my garage is going to take away quite a bit of that. Ughhh! 14 years of Jacquelynn's clothes, toys, books, and more are screaming to find new homes. I thinned clothes out already but there are still tons. Plus, I just bought more because she needed shorts for the Summer. I have to give kudos to my Mom because she managed to always keep three kids well dressed. I have one and feel the squeeze with each season.
Anyhow, on to my card. I used Card Patterns latest sketch:

Also incorporated The Shabby Tea Room's challenge to use chipboard and the City Crafter Challenge blog to use pink with a hint of green. Heather Jensen is the hostess for this week and I love her cards! I finally got my hands on The Girl's Paperie paper and could not wait to use it. It's pure shabby goodness! I used a little ink on the edges of my card to blend the papers but they are distressed/aged perfectly. I love the soft colors and the patterns of cottage roses are beautiful. The ribbon on this card is American Crafts which I also just picked up. The heart chipboard, brad, pearl strand and flowers are older items I incorporated because I must use what I have before buying new. Or so I keep telling myself. :-) Off to watch a little TV. Have a great evening!

Your cards are truly beautiful, you have a wonderful sense for shabby chic which I unfortunately lack.
I am wishing you everything best and loads of strength in your Mummy Warrior role. I can only imagine how hard it can get sometimes!
