Hump Day!

Two more sleeps and it will be Friday!  I love the weekends because I get to craft, relax and just hang out with the kids.  No school lunches, homework, rushing around to get ready before the bus arrives - you know.....

I wanted to share random pictures, especially as I try to practice with my camera (off the auto setting ;)  This is a shot of Gala, "striking a pose" in the field. 

Unfortunately Mark lost his Aunt Valerie, she was taken from this world too early due to cancer.  He asked me to make a card so I looked for some inspiration online and came up with this card.  Primarily I used the card example from the Muse challenge blog (Muse #52) but changed it slightly to better suit what we were looking for.  I placed the band across the middle because I liked the balance between the sentiment and the embellishments.  In the original card I liked how the stems and leaves flow out from the flower so I tried to mimic that with the dragonfly and the trail of pearls.


  1. Love the added pearl swirls! Thanks for joining in with Muse!

  2. Beautiful card for a very sad occasion. Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!
