Big Purple Flower


Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. Work has been consuming me lately and I just haven't had time to post. Completely off the subject...Yesterday when I was coming home from work, I saw a little puppy that looked like a poodle/maltese mix walking around the neighborhood. She had no collar on and me being the dog lover that I am picked her up and started going around the neighborhood to see if anyone had lost this cute little pup. Most everyone was not at home so I took her to my house and Piper (my aussie) decided that she had become a new mom! They were so cute playing with each other. Shoulda taken some pictures. Finally I went to my neighbor across the street and she knew who the pup belonged to, so end of story, the owner was relieved. I am such a sucker when it comes to animals...and the apple does not fall far from the tree...my DD was out traveling on her job and she saw a little black puppy on the side of the interstate. She pulled off at the next exit and turned around, got out of the car and with her hamburger she tried to lure the puppy to her. (Now this is really a dangerous thing to do) A State Trooper stopped and asked what she was doing. Another long story short, they never could lure the dog to them and the State Trooper reprimanded my DD for trying such a dangerous ploy, as someone could have driven up behind her and well....who knows what could have happened. Thank you Lord for watching over my precious girl.
Okay...this card was made for my good friend Debbie as her birthday was this past week. She is a dear friend and was absolutely delighted when she opened the card as purple is her favorite color. If you click on the pic you can see the detail better. I am really trying to practice on my picture taking skills, but it seems it may take a long time, or a new camera to get it down pat. I wish you all a great day!!!

You're such a sweetheart Velta! Thanks for sharing your experience.
What a gorgeous card, again! Love the glitter and the colors.
You asked me where I got my stamp for my SBS1 challenge, it's a stamp I received as a blog candy, made by smartworks.com.
Have a great weekend!

No words were needed to express how much I loved the card. I know you could tell how much I appreciated the sentiment by the expression on my face. Not to mention the Coffee Mate Mug Warmer present and taking me out to lunch at Olive Garden. The company was better than the food.

Thanks so much for spending your precious time making a beautiful hand-crafter birthday card just for me. I have it pinned to my wall at work, so I can look at it when I am there.

You are truly a wonder-mous, spectacu-rific friend and I am so blessed to know you.

I'm sorry your daughter wasn't able to rescue the puppy but I'm sure glad she didn't get herself hurt! I understand her wanting to make the effort. I love your card. I don't see a lot of purple used but it's always so pretty. It was my mom's favorite color--lavender, actually. I remember a lavender bathroom that was so feminine and fresh, like flowers budding in the spring time. Thank you for sharing this lovely card!
