Emma P.J.



Hello Everyone!

Although the past few days have been a little stressful, I think that I can relax a little and focus my attention on what I love to do..... make cards. I haven't sat at my crafting table since Friday and my "mojo" was not working for me at all this morning! It took me forever to make my card today! I wasn't happy with anything and spent way too much time on it and for me that is a sign that my mojo isn't working. After taking a little break, I got myself together and finished my card and even managed to incorporate the following challenges that are listed below.
I used the adorable Emma Puddle Jumper for my image and based my card from the Totally Gorjuss challenge sketch.

To sum everything up, my card is "girly", has "bling",features two papers, two buttons and two flowers which happen to be paper. My card is also a celebration /birthday invite card. (inside of card features a invite tag)

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Free week ** Stamp Something Something Girly ** Totally Gorjuss Sketch ** Paper Jewels Gotta Have Bling ** Everybody Art 2papers, 2flowers,2buttons **
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

card details

I appreciate all of your warm comments and well wishes for my best friend. She is in critical condition and according to her daughter, they believe she is cancer free! Thank you all for your prayers and have a blessed day!

hugs
Risa:)
