Good Morning!

Today's post is for Cheery Lynn Designs August 31st Challenge 148:  Hearts A Glow

I wanted to make something other than a card, and when I saw the title of this challenge, I knew what I wanted to try and make, a luminaria for my table!

Cheery Lynn's  B144 Celtic Heart was popped out from the center of the Joy Crafts "Square Frame",
 and small pearls were added.
The flowers and leaves were added on all four sides.

A small battery operated candle flickers away inside.

Cheery Lynn:  B144 Celtic Heart, B181 Build A Flower 1, B188 Build A Flower Embellishment #2, French Lattice Small
Heartfelt Creations: Delicate Asters
Spellbinders: Rose Creations, Large Circles
Memory Box: Chesapeake Scrollwork
Joy Crafts:  Square Frame

This was a really fun project to make!

Thinking of You!

Thinking of You!
Welcome to my garden of paper petals. Nothing makes happier than giving a card to someone who treasures it. A friend of mine loves the color purple, so for her birthday, I made her a card with a large purple mum as the center, with light colored purple daisies, some dark purple flowers for depth, and some baby's breath as filler. My friend just loved the card, and has it showcased in a shadow box from Michael's. She couldn't wait to show me what she had done. Imagine my surprise when I walked into her family room, and there on the wall was my card hanging up on the wall. It looks beautiful! I hope you all enjoy it!

More to come ......

I am very new at this blog business, and it has taken me much longer than I anticipated to post my information, so please bear with me, as this "garden" is a definite work in progress!
