Happy Sunday to you!  Another wonderful weekend with my family is coming to an end.  For this I am sad, but so delighted I had the time to spend with them.  Yesterday was  gorgeous with warm temps.  I saw so many people wearing shorts.  Yeah!  Does this mean I need to go get a pedicure so I can sport flip flops soon?  Those puppies have been wrapped up too long.  Of course, today it's pouring but the rain is tranquil.
Today I would like to share my Sentimental Sundays card.  We are sponsored by Deedee's Digis and our challenge is to use pearls and lace.  Easy peasy huh?  Okay for me it is because I hoard these items so it was good for me to  cleanse..errr... clean a bit out.  :-)  I also received some beautiful stick pins from Julia.  Do you see the glitter top peeking out of the butterfly?  She is such a talented artist.  She makes jewelry, sells vintage items, and well go take a look and see all the beautiful items she has! 
I feel like I have not participated in the Card Patterns sketch in forever.  I was determined this weekend to though and yesterday's newest sketch had me inspired. 
The ever so talented Tracy Schultz designed this one.  She has such lovely cards on her blog.  I love to visit her site and see what she is up to.  If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?  Pop on over.  :-)
I also was inspired by this week's challenge at LRW which is a sentiment only card.  One my faves!  I had to participate. 
At  Totally Papercrafts, they also have a pearls and lace challenge.  I will admit I feel a bit out of my league placing my card because the DT has incredible examples with the cutest images.  Nevertheless, I am forging on and entering.  You never know.

I love this; that "double" butterfly almost pops off the card. Gorgeous background paper; your card is stunning!


THis came out really lovely, Amy! Love the three D butterfly, so pretty.
Yes, I got a blog makover a month or so ago, Laura from Creation Faeries did it. Her sister had to draw the ducks as that was a special request from me. ( I was probably a nightmare for her! lol)
I think your blogger backgound is quite nice, I don't think Ive seen any one else with the same one.Thats the main thing isn't it. We just want to be individuals. :-)
