When this posts I will be gone on a weeks vacation!
The first week long vacation my hubby
has had in over 15 years!
So if I don't get around to visit you while gone
I certainly will when I return!

The new challenge at 
Fussy and Fancy is being hosted by our lovely Sheryl.
she has chosen the theme
Lace and Flowers.
We have the perfect sponsor which is

Once again I made my entire card from things
from one of my 'scrap' bags of pre-cuts and such.
This all came from the 'lavender' bag, 
the tiny paper lace doily, the heart paper locket, last little Rose, the image and the 2 butterflies .

I used a lace doily embossing folder for the card base.
The ribbon is some I died with re-inkers several years ago.

The celebrate tag is a G45, I found a little lavender pin,
so I pinned it onto the ribbon.

I did add a bit of 'wink of stella' to the image
which I am sure you can't see in the picture.

Take a peek at the
Fussy and Fancy blog as the design team
has done an outstanding job (as always) of creating
to inspire YOU!

PS:  Fussy and Fancy is also looking for a few new
ladies to join us, if interested enter a card into the
challenge and add DT after your name!!

Lace and flowers...what a beautiful combination! Such a pretty image. Ohhh, I would love to see birds like this on my hydrangeas, but I don't seem to be able to attract anything other than chickadees and sparrows. I've grown so fond of them, though. Gorgeous card, Diane. Hope you're enjoying your vacation!
