I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, Last night, I was up a few times again with this never ending cough from the flu I had last week. At 3am in the morning I was in so much pain from my throat that I almost cried! I desperately looked up on line quick at home remedies. Gargle with salt water....duh! I don't know why I didn't think of that before? Delirious i guess? Needless to say it must have helped because I finally fell asleep and woke up in less pain! Thank you Lord! I was so exhausted! I sure needed that sleep.
So today at Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog # 171 is all about being Tickled Pink! I started to make this card last night and finished it up this morning. My mother loves shabby chic and pink so I thought I would make this card a bit early for mother's day.
I used 4 different Cheery Lynn Diecuts for this 5 x 6 card. Since the theme is really all pinky, I added some pink pearls all around the card. I really wanted to use a pink satin bow but I dont have any this shade? Oh no! lol So I used the next best thing...a pink sheer that I found a the dollar store. It is my first triple bow and I really like the look so you may be seeing more of these in the future. :)
So here is a close up of the sentiment. It is not my quote. I seen it on another card a long time ago but I honestly don't know where and who made the stamp? So sorry! So I just printed it up on my computer and diecut it out. Then I added some pink distressing ink and added some pop dots behind it for a 3D look.
You know how I mentioned on my last card that I wanted to add a butterfly? TaDa! Today, I had the perfect spot for it...with one tiny pearl!
A closer view of the pink flowers. Miniature Roses and a Posy. If you get the chance...
