Flowers in a Teacup Card and Accident Update

Coffee of the Day - Marzipan

I must begun today's post by thanking all of you for the very kind and lovely comments you left yesterday about Tyler's accident, as well as the wonderful email messages I received. I have said it before, and I will say it again - y'all are the BEST! :)

Tyler took the day off from classes. His professors were very understanding, which meant a lot to me. His head bothered him for most of the day. He'll have a bit of a knot and abrasion, but so very thankful that is all. the 'what could have beens' are frightening. Thank You, God, for keeping my son safe!

our poor vehicle has been claimed as totalled by the repair shop. so Dave is perusing Craigslist for another for us. until then he'll work from home as he can until the group comes to Camp this weekend. Tyler's car has been repaired enough to get him to classes and back until they can work on it more and an ordered part arrives.

now on to something MUCH more fun! :)

I'm sharing the last of cards I made while on my blogging hiatus. This one was made for a very dear friend who had been quite ill.

image is by A Day for Daisies and was paper pieced. papers are from the Basic Grey Prism collection, flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, banner die, punch, & sentiment stamp are SU!, buttons are vintage, and that fab rhinestone flourish is by ZVA Creative. some faux stitching was added with a white gel pen and distress stickles to the flower centers. a doily mats the main image. a little snippet of pink grosgrain ribbon completes the project.

again, thanks to all of you for your love and concern! if I don't see you back here before then, pop back on Friday for the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop! :)

p.s. you can not only get a sneak preview of my 1st card for the coffee hop, but also pick up a great free sentiment to use if you head over to Create With TLC! :)

Forgive me as I'm catching up all at once with what's going on in your posts here. Glad things are getting worked out and especially glad to hear that he is going to be fine. It's too bad about the car, but it could always be worse.

Now for your card, absolutely amazing design!! WOW! Such a beautiful image and I love your choice of papers with it as well! The lace doily is the perfect accent behind your image! :) HUGS

Your card is beautiful Jennifer, such a gorgeous image and lots of fabulous details.
I'm so pleased to hear that Tyler is OK and well enough to return to classes, good luck with the hunt for another car - we don't realise how much we rely on them until something happens do we!
Take care.

A gorgeous card Jennifer. I love your poppy image and that you have coloured them in pink instead of the traditional red. The layout of your card works wonderfully and the rhinestone swirl draws the eye around your card perfectly. Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers and more. Sally.x.
