Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC51

It is the end of the month and time for a guest challenge designer! This week Flourishes challenge host is Pat Adam. And here is Pat's challenge written in her on words. "For this week's challenge be inspired by the letter P. Sounds a bit crazy, but not really if you think about it for a bit. I'm thinking pink, pearls, poppies, purple, punches, and piercing.

This is my take on the FTTC51 challenge...using pink and pearls. The cardstock is SU's Pretty in Pink. The DP is from Paper Pizzaz Handmade Flowers. Is that not the most beautiful paper? I used pearls in the corners. My oval nesties for the framed background after running it through my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Folder. The sentiment is computer generated. The flowers came from Michael's and the butterflies were made with my MS Butterfly Punch. If you click on the picture you can get a better view.

Please visit Pat's Blog she is hosting a Valentines for Children's Hospital Drive. Last year, I made about 75 cards for this event...and I had a blast doing it. Just thinking of how the children would react when they opened the Valentine Cards I made. Nothing feels better than giving!! Pat is definitely a giver!!! If you have time, I hope you will make some Valentine Cards for these children. You can find the information at the top of Pat's blog! Also, I would love to see what you all come up with.

Sorry I have been MIA from commenting on my favorite blogs...I had 3 Birthdays in December, Christmas, and 3 more Birthdays in January...so I have really been busy!

The weather here is sooo up and down...one morning we will be in the teens and that afternoon we will be in the 60's...so a lot of people where I work are having sinus and cold issues. I have been lucky so far.

Again, thanks for your comments and I hope the rest of the week is a good one for you all!
