Taking a picture was a real challenge because of all the shine but hopefully I will get better at pics.
If you look at the pics closely you will see I changed the curtain from blue to white just looked better.

 So bright - but the curtain change

Valentine 3

OK this is the last card but I really like it for a guy

Same style of roses from Spellbinder spiral blossom one S4-351 the bluish one is made from vellum and spritzed with a blue wash from Ranger the white is from a card stock called Material card stock I don't know who made it and I got it from a store going out of business but I love to work with it -it doesn't rip. Again I used pearls in the center of the roses and on right front , the lace Dollie is Cheery Lynn Design DL104"Canadian Kaleidoscope, not show but I wrapped half on back it's cute. Greenery is Heartfelt creations Belle Rose HCD712, stash of ribbon and the stamps in lower right had corner are from
Technique Tuesday - the background is cover all stamp from "Fiskers" Vintage Farm set. I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads faded jeans, and tumbled glass.
 Hope you enjoy them all as much as I did creating them.

Hello All,
  Loved this so much I made three different cards of course making flowers is something I love to do as well.
Maybe some day I might get half as good as Selma. Anyway this is my first card for Joan's challange #2:

Card is peach in color Rose made from Spellbinder Spiral Blossom One S4-351 using glitter, pearls, and liquid pearls for dew drops, the peach paper was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder then sanded for the effect, edges die cut using Martha Stewart's lace die. Years ago my mother had embroidered lots of heart shaped doilies and  I thought to went good on this card -leaves are from Heartfelt creations "Bella Rose HCD 712 - Ribbon from stash. All the dies I purchased from Joans Garden, great place to shop.

Heart Challenge -1

Hello All,
It has been a long time but I am some what back - for the past month my family has been struggling with the illness of my great grandson "Elijah Shelton" age 4. Yesterday Elijah lost his battle and we are all now struggling with his loss. I would like to think you all for your prayers and although he will be missed for ever his suffering has ended and for that we are thankful.  Tonight I wanted to do this challenge because it was Hearts and that is how we lost Elijah.  So this is my post.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities HeartsS4 136, LaBlanche LB1028 Swirl , Stickles-Frosted Lace & Worn Lipstick, and Candy Pink embossing powder. few gem stones and ribbon.
