Memory Box Blossoms

Hello friends,

It seems like ages since I've posted, but so much has been going on these past couple of months.  In June, my sweet Cheops celebrated his 15th birthday.  For 2 1/2 years now he has had diabetes and I monitor his glucose levels regularly.  Some days it is a challenge, but I cherish each moment I have with him.

Today I'm sharing a card I made back in May for Mother's Day using some pastel colors.  I enjoyed creating this knowing the recipient would truly appreciate a handmade item.


The background paper is Gossamer by Memory Box.  Cherry blossoms and a Valley butterfly were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown, cut out and colored using markers.  A little Star Dust Stickles accents each blossom with a blush pearl in the center.  Everything was popped up onto a piece of Shimmery White paper cut from a Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle die.






I love the grace and elegance this Memory Box set creates.  It was sold exclusively at Simple Pleasures in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO two years ago.

Wishing you a week filled with smiles  :-)
