Thank you to my followers and "To My Forever Friend" Card

Can you believe it is Sunday already?  The last day of June.  The last day for Google Reader.  Before I get to the card, I just wanted to thank all the Reader followers for my blog.  I have so appreciated all of your kind comments and smiles.  The time you have taken to stop by my little blog and leave some love has meant the world to me.  I am so fortunate because some great blogworld friendships have developed.  (Blog space hugs to you all!)

I do hope you have enjoyed being a follower!  Feel free to click the Bloglovin' button to keep in the crafting loop.  :)

Now, onto the card...

The rain has put a damper on my outdoor weekend plans so I spent some time in the craft room tidying things up.  Of course, tidying is boring compared to crafting so my attention was quickly averted.  I ended up combining some current challenges into one card.  The challenges that caught my eye were: lavender and lace (from the Allsorts blog), embossed squares (Cuttlebug Mania), oldest embellishment (Shopping our Stash) and Polka dots (Frosted Designs, Really Reasonable Ribbons).  There are also some AG challenges (Sunday Funday, Hiding in My Craft Room) that I also wanted to participate in.  So here is my collective challenge card:

I was able to use some scrap paper and embellishments on this card- woo who!  My oldest embellishment took some time to figure out.  I believe my oldest embellishment is the metal die under the green flower.  It was purchased probably 5 or 6 years ago.  Finally...the neglected die is being used!

Other Materials/Product used:

  • JustRite Antique Valentine Tags One (sentiment)
  • Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents (ivory flourishes)
  • Graphic 45 Secret Garden and A Ladies Diary (paper and tag)
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder, Baby's Breath
Thanks so much for stopping by!
