You're Too Kind

I finally had a chance to do some crafting today. and gosh, did it feel good! :)

I made this card with several challenges in mind. One is over at Squigglefly. their challenge is to create something using your fave image from the SF store. Since I lost all of my images when my compy crashed this winter, I have come to appreciate Squigglefly so much more. Not only do they represent some amazing artists, but they are the only digital store I have found that actually has downloads that don't expire. So this weekend I was able to collect all of the images I have purchased and put them on my new computer! It was just like Christmas Day! as I was going through each image and putting them in the proper folder and on a flashstick, I realized just how much I really love this image, 'Bouquet For You'. She was one of the very first I bought from SF, even before I served on their DT. So it was an easy choice for which image to use!

my new fave Basic Grey paper collection, Sweet Threads, happens to have both pink & orange, a fun color combo I wanted to try. lots of sparkle and shine on this card that doesn't really show in scan. You will find following this post some other challenges I am also joining.

See you tomorrow! :)

Sugar Creek Hollow - tic tac toe (buttons, die cut, lace, but I also added a flower. sure hope that is okay 'cause it looks so pretty on there! grins!)
Basic Grey - stitching (along right side)
Just Some Lines - spots & dots (white gel pen polka dots on tights, pocket, & hair bow)
Our Creative Corner - your style (PINK, using Basic Grey, buttons, trim, and shabby/vintage but not too overdone)

Stampin' For the Weekend - favorite things
CCEE - pink (with pleasure!!)
Rainbow Lady's - digi
Crafts & Me - stitches
Digital Tuesday - ice cream combo (raspberry or rainbow sherbet for me!)

Hi Jennifer,

So tickled to see DT after your name on your submission to Our Creative Corner this week! I love "Your Style" of sweet, gentle vintage. Your card is lovely - beautiful pinks and patters and that's a sweet whimsical image.

Hope you are doing well.
