Pretty and Pink

Hello Friends!
I hope your week is going well! So glad you could stop by today!

I have had a busy week but productive. Finally shook that nasty head cold and feel like a new person! Thank you all so much for your well wishes!

Last night was Fellowship dinner at church and we had such a good time! I am so blessed with wonderful loving friends in all areas of my life! Wish you all could have been there to share in the El Dorado Casserole! It's much like a Mexican lasagna! Yumm!

The card you see today was designed for a very dear friend who owns a bed and breakfast horse ranch. She is such a special lady! I started with a pink card base and used an EK Success border punch on the bottom top piece. I used deco scissors on the bottom side of the base. I used computer generated DP for the "hay" layer and used the border punch again all the way around. The same for the white layer. The next hay layer was cut with deco scissors. The birthday sentiment was done on the computer, cut and aged with Antique Linen ink. The horse image was stamped and cut and matted to pink. This too was aged. The crochet flower was added with a pearl center. I also added pearls to the corner. A white organdy ribbon was tied to add a final accent. I really enjoyed this card and was so glad the computer and stamp mix came together as well as it did. Hope you like it, too!

Now, it's back to the craft room to get in some much needed time! Lots of Valentines yet to do and so many birthdays and anniversarys the next couple of months! Thank you for visiting today! I hope you enjoyed your visit and found something positive to take away with you! You are all so special and appreciated! Come on back now....Ya hear!!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
