Thinking of You Poppies in Bottles

Coffee of the Day - Carrot Cake

Happy Saturday! Are all of you doing your "it's the weekend" dance?! grins! and for those of us here in the States, we get the added bonus of a long holiday weekend, too! double the fun! wooo hoooo! I know we will be cooking out on the grill at least once or twice.... hopefully all of you have something especially fabulous planned. :)

Today I am sharing another of my hiatus cards. I plan to get into my craft room today to get something 'fresh' made for all of you, I promise! my room is almost actually clean, too! someday I might actually take a few photos to share with all of you....


I made this card for a friend who's mom went into the hospital for emergency surgery. I wanted to send a card to let them know we were all thinking of them and saying prayers.

The image is by A Day for Daisies, little paper banner at the bottom is Basic Grey J'Adore, chalkboard tag is My Mind's Eye, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts, while buttons are from my vintage stash. I added a few little doodle dots with my white gel pen. you can almost see the snippet of the doily in the bottom corner. sentiment is SU!  flower centers on main image are covered in distress stickles. a bit of seam binding and baker's twine tie off the tag.

Have a most wonderful weekend, whatever your plans!
