Oh my goodness, the first Paper Players blog hop was a resounding success! I am simply stunned and amazed at how many of you visited this blog 'o' mine yesterday and left such sweet comments! I treasure each and every one of them. It was so nice to hear from old friends and new friends and a few that I didn't even know I had ;-). Big hugs to all of you for stopping by. If you left your email or blog address, I intend to visit you it just may take me awhile to get through to everyone! :-)
So I have a quick little card to share with you today that needs a little back story. A dear friend and colleague recently completed a very successful round of chemotherapy. We were all soooo happy for her and wanted to celebrate this milestone. She has had the best attitude through everything and I wanted to make her a happy, vibrant, upbeat card to match her personality! I also need to tell you that her maiden name is....Button. I know, how cool is that?! So here is the card I made for her:
So more of the fun and fabulous Sweet Stitches DSP took center stage here with a strip of [retired] Tempting Turquoise DSP and that fun button border! Now before you go looking for it in the SU catalog, I'll tell you that it's "contraband", that means non-SU! Shhh. I don't own it but had to use it while visiting my mom a few weeks ago. Isn't it perfect?!
and the punched needle was just crying out for an embellishment so a little bit of embroidery floss tied onto a Daffodil Delight button was the perfect touch!
and a quick peek at the inside with a sentiment from Curly Cute. I think it did the trick as she squealed with delight when she opened it! And that's what I love about giving a handmade card--making something uniquely personal that just makes someone's day.
You all certainly made my day yesterday so I hope this has brightened your day just a little--have a great one my friends!
