Just Because...

I hope that you're all enjoying a relaxing weekend!

It's been very quiet here so far!
DH flew to Colorado to meet DS and DD and watch the Cardinal's play two
of their three games in Denver - what fun!
He's home now, so he and I will BBQ something,
and make a trip to the graveyards with flags and flowers.

Rosie the Wonder-doggie is still keeping us company.
It's going to seem very quiet when DD takes her home!

I decided to take part in a challenge today - don't faint!
I haven't been doing much of that lately, but I am going to try to step it up a bit!
I love C.C. Designs Images - I've never seen one that didn't just catch at my heart.
They make me think of my DD at a young age, and how can you not love that?

My card is for the Wednesday challenge at All That Scraps, which is to use felt.
Can you believe I had NO felt? Sheesh, what crafter has no felt?
I had to run into our local craft store to find a few sheets!
Anyway, my card features the absolutely darling Swiss Pixie Tulip Birgitta,
which can be found here.
I tried to keep this card very simple, and let the image 'shine'!

All coloring is done with Copics.
I used Glossy Accents on the butterfly and flower, and a white Sharpie Paint Pen to highlight. The felt was purchased at The Red Rooster Crafts store here in Farmington

Hope she brought a smile to your face!
You have until Tuesday to take part in the challenge!

Thanks for dropping by - hope to get by to see you today, as well!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Food for thought:
Cherish each precious day! Each one is a gift - don't exchange yours unopened!!!

This is adorable Patti. Love the felt squares and keep many colors on hand. I don't use it often, but when I want to use it, I'm glad I have it.

Have a spectacular evening! Hugs!

I guess I'm one of those crafters that doesn't have any felt. I've never used felt for anything! LOL I never even think about felt. You did a great job with your felt. Great way to use it. I on the other hand shall remain feltless . . .Best, Curt

She definitely brought a smile to my face -- thank you! Loved reading about how you had to run out and grab some felt. You are a very determined lady -- usually I just pass on the challenges when I don't have the materials -- LOL! I really like the colors of felt you chose, and how you laid out the squares as a background for that adorable little girl. Hope you and your hubby had a wonderful holiday together! :-)
