I Will Give You Rest Flower Fairy

Top 3 Pick at Robyn's Fetish

Coffee of the Day - Carrot Cake

It's the weekend! Hooray!

I'm sharing with all of you yet another of the sympathy cards I'm making for my cousin's family. I'm almost finished with them - just a few more to do. hope to get them completed this weekend if all goes well.

Today's card uses a precious little image from A Day for Daisies called 'Baby Cherry Blossom' and a verse given away over at Word Art Wednesday.


I confess that I first saw the verse this week and knew immediately that I wanted to use it. I was looking through my ADFD images on my computer and came across the cherry blossom one. it wasn't until the entire thing was printed and on my craft desk that I actually saw the little flower fairy hidden inside the image. C.S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien were both Christians and used fairy folk in their writings, so I guess my one little card should be okay. ;)

papers are from the Basic Grey Typeset and Dear Heart collections, buttons are from my vintage stash, bay leaf seam binding (that I aged and distresd) is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, mini sweetheart blossom is from Wild Orchid Crafts, and little banner punch is by SU!  a wink of stella glitter pen was used to add sparkle to the main image.

enjoy your day! :)
