So Adorable Ballerina

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Caramel Hazelnut Rum (well, it IS Saturday, afterall!)

My card share for today is a very precious one to me. you see it was made for a magazine submission, but was returned at the last minute because it was not needed afterall. I try to make all of my cards special, but the magazine ones get LOTS of extra attention and love. I have to take note of every detail, description, and item I use, so it just stands that there is a bit more focus on them. plus, gosh, a ton more people are going to see them! ;)

I have a most adorable young lady in mind that this is being mailed to, so I hope she enjoys it. :)

The image is from A Day for Daisies, papers & elements are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut collection (most are printed from digital), flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, chalk tag is My Mind's Eye, glassine bag is K & Co, ribbon is May Arts, and baby button card is from my vintage stash. other buttons are also vintage, and doily is from my stash, too.

main die is Spellbinders, tiny leaf flourish dies are Cheery Lynn, while gorgeous floral corner die is Wild Rose Studio. accents to flowers on main image with stickles and her tutu with clear wink of stella glitter pen.

I'm still dealing with my seizures, so getting to all of your blogs has not been easy. I am so very sorry. hope to get better at leaving comments and stopping by as soon as possible. I do think of each of you often, I promise! :)

Hope your weekend is off to a splendid start so far!
