Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Coconut
Happy Friday! Phew.... did you ever think we would make it to the weekend? what a week! Today's card is for all of YOU! not only is it made with an image that is very special to me, but it is made for some of the most wonderful, kind, generous, loving people I have ever had the chance to NOT meet! tee hee! You have let me know, in no uncertain terms, that behind every dark cloud, there is most certainly a beautiful rainbow ready to shine down upon us. You have also reminded me that I can not look at the negative that has been sent my way. I can look at the dirt, or I can see the sunshine. So many have reached out to me in various ways - cards, emails, flowers, some have even sent little treasure gifts that have so touched my heart. but understand this, YOU MATTER TO ME! YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE! and I thank you! :) I dedicate today's post and card to YOU! :)
Jellypark has a new challenge starting today as well as some cute new images being released. Btw - this is the most AWESOME group of ladies I have ever had the chance to be part of a team with, next to my Pile it On teamies. they soooo rock! :) The new challenge at Jellypark is called Waving, in honor of the upcoming USA holiday of July 4th. you can create any kind of a project that shows things that wave: hands, flags, banners, oceans, whatever you can think of!
I chose this very precious fundraiser image Claire has drawn for her Little Havens charity. You can read more about it here on the store site. She has a special line of stamps created just for this wonderful childrens' hospice center. Claire also is a volunteer there and has told me some fantastic stories about her times at this center. Thanks to the kindness of all of you, the goal Claire set at the beginning of the year has already been met! wooooo hoooooo! but I told her that we can't stop and need to keep going! sure, we can reach a million! ;) Each month the winner over at Jellypark Juniors chooses what image they would like Claire to draw. That new image gets added to the fundraiser collection for Little Havens. how cool is that?
As you can tell, I am VERY happy to be back to my usual style of crafting again. boy howdy that CAS stuff is just so not me.... ;) Papers here are Basic Grey PB & J, little trim snippet & rose are Prima, buttons are October Afternoon, ruler sticker is Jenni Bowlin. banner on image was painted with shimmerz while accents were made with my white gel pen. I do think this pennant punch by SU! is one of my very faves.
thank you again for all you do! have a most wonderful weekend! :)
