Doilies of Hope

Coffee of the Day - Toasted Coconut with Butter Rum

As you know I have been participating in a few of the challenges going over at Split Coast Stampers in their Hope You Can Cling To challenge forum. It really feels good to create something that you know is going to someone whose day needs a bit of brightening......

Today's card is for the Somekinda Hope challenge - create a card using something old and something new. We have a similar challenge starting today at the Squigglefly PCP group to parallel this one in hopes of collecting more cards for MD Anderson Hospital. Please, if you can, we would love to have you participate!

I used an image from the new set by Michelle Bertuzzi, Doilies and Laces, and printed it onto some of my old beloved Daisy D's papers from the Snowflakes & Holly collection. The doilies were highlighted with a black spica glitter pen, sprayed with frost spritz, and then edged with rock candy stickles. the little flower was sprayed with a new to me candy corn glimmer mist and then lightly touched with the same rock candy stickles. the buttons are all from my vintage stash, so they are old old old. most everything was adhered with my fancy schmancy new pink ATG gun that David bought me the other day! boy, am I lovin' that puppy! ;)

we are off to pick up Mick from Bowling Green in just a moment, so had best go..... everyone enjoy your weekend! love ya!
