It has been a long time since I have last posted a card I made for someone that comes to my blog often and leaves me with such encouragement. You can read about it more on this post. I had planned on making a card for everyone of you by the end of the year but I am not sure I will be able to do that so I will be continuing this into next year. I have another one on it's way to someone and as soon as they get it I will post.
Today's card I am sharing went out to Celeste over at Southern Day Dreams. If you are looking for wonderful decorating ideas you need to head over to her blog, she has such great inspiration. She also does Beautiful painting and creations too that she sells in her Etsy store, perfect way to shop for upcoming Christmas presents :) I am in Awe of her tole paintings the most on all kinds of objects too, I use to do tole painting about 20 some years ago and I know the work that goes into it. So stop by her blog and check it out and her Etsy store.
I first made the crocheted button flowers following this You tube video. I had made more but I just couldn't get a pleasing bouquet using more so you will probably see them on upcoming cards :)
My hubby made a template of a vase for me so that is what i used for the vase, I first covered some thick board with paper and then traced the vase and cut it out.
I used memory thread and twisted it around a pencil to give some curl to it, I love that stuff for filler in a bouquet :) Inked around the outside of the card.
Pink Paislee and London Market papers
Prsma flowers -- small cream flowers
Decorative Choice -- White flower with ribbon
DMC -- Memory Thread
Paper Salon -- simply sentimental stamp
Thank you to all of you that take the time to brighten my days with your comments and the friendships I have formed through blogging :) Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
I also want to thank you for your sympathies you left on the last post after the passing of our sweet little Peanut, she is missed daily, it is so amazing the whole that is left after they are gone.
