The True Value of a Moment

I wasn't able to settle down today
and do anything that I should be doing,
so instead I decided to make a card just for a few challenges.

I always try to do a couple of my favorite challenges each week

I also have a goal to use up as much as I can this year
of scraps (snippets) and things I have already die cut and/or stamped.

In my little bag of 'black' scraps I had this pretty little verse
which holds so true for me this week with the loss of my precious
Nellie dog.

which I probably should of tossed long ago,
but it came in handy for this card.

The frame was cut from a glossy piece that was packaging from
an embossing folder I had purchased.  I saved it as it has lines
running down it (which YOU can't see in the photo...but I

The background paper is a scrap of an old SU paper.
I distressed the edges of it and kind of love the look.

I added a few sequins and a twine bow to finish.

Entering in the following challenges:

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss . . . no wonder you couldn't settle to anything.

Nevertheless, you've made a gorgeous monochromatic card and I love all the elements on it and the sentiment is brilliant.

Thanks for coming over to play in the Snippets Playground. Parsnip says he's going sit on the bench with you and give you a few hugs. Oh, and if you need to drown your sorrows, just come on over to the Tree house! xxx
