Good Tuesday afternoon.....

my stamping friends!!!! Hope you all had a wonderful start into the new week. Sorry I have been absent for a few days, but I had another one of those migraine attacks over the weekend. To tell you the truth they really, really suck. But I am thankful I am feeling better now :D.

I have some exciting news, well, I was actually kind of shocked when I first saw it, but that pocket card I showed you all last week, remember? Well, let me tell you, my friend Lovely Linda e-mailed me in BIG RED letters that I was one of the Three For Thee winners over at ODBD. Me, really, I never ever win anything, so I did not even think in my wildest dreams that I would even be considered, but that was not all. Also last week, Lorelie contacted me and asked if it would be all right to feature another one of my cards which I made with one of the newly released sets from ODBD in the customer pick of the week section of their Blog. Goodness, all of this in one week, how much more could I take? I was so honored that any of my humble creations would be chosen that I had tears in my eyes.




But that was all of the good things that happened to me, today I checked my blogger updates and low and behold I was picked as one of the three Shining Stars Award over Stampin Sisters in Christ Let me tell you, I am super happy and can barely contain myself :D:D:D:D.


Check out this cool award









Sorry, but I can't figure out how to make it blink. Having one of those moments.




All right, now, this is the news I wanted to share with you all on to the card I have for you.

It is a real simple card, but I hope the person this card is going to will be encouraged and get a smile on her face. I don't really know the lady, but heard that she is recovering from surgery and has a long way to go, so I've decided to brighten her day a little :D.


I chose some paper in a lime kind of green, which is from a Making Memories pad I got not long ago. The sentiment was stamped in Certainly Celery unto some PTI white cs which I ran through my bug with a Petite Oval Large die from Nesties. I also added some punched butterflies and white Prima Hydrangeas. Like I've said pretty simple, but I did not want to put too many layers on it as this one has to go all the way to Virginia.


Check it out......




Recipe:

Paper: PTI white, Su Certainly Celery, Making Memories

Stamps: ODBD Get Well


Ink: SU Certainly Celery


Accessories: Nesties Petite Ovals Large, white Hydrangeas from Prima, Martha Stewart 3 butterflies punch, Recollections silver half pearls, Pearl Lettuce Dew Drops, 3D glue dots, Foam Tape, 3 D foam dots


I also have a shot from the inside of the card. You've gotta excuse the shadow and the rock in the picture. I took the pictures outside and the wind kept blowing my card away, so I had to lean it towards the big rock and put a little one in front of it to make it stay ;D.



What do you think? Do you think this card will make this lady's day?

Well, I am off to get some Banana Bread out of the oven. The entire house smells like it {big sigh}, so yummy smelling ;D.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today. If you have a minute I'd love to hear from you. You know those comments make every day a special day :D.

Hugs,
