Blogging again!

HI All,

  It has been such a long time since I have blogged.  I had to knock on my noggin to jog my memory as how to begin.  As many of you know I have been very ill, hence no blogging.  I thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Tampa General for the loving care and restoration of my health.  I think I have definitely turned the corner and am out of the woods.  Thanks go out to Julie Koerber, Sharon Doolittle, the Flourishes Senior Design Team, and the Friends of Flourishes for keeping the company afloat.  Big loving hugs to all.

  The card I am going to kick off the renewal is done with Sweet Violets. 


 The Card is 5 1/2″ square.  The background designer paper is from my stash –I think from Basic Grey.  The image was stamped onto Flourishes Classic White paper and colored with the Violet collection of Copics, the Green leaves were done with the Evergreen collection.  I cut the image with the classic ovals from Nestabilities and then added the new beaded Nestabilities.  I used two tiny Kaiser white pearls in the center of a couple of the violets.  For the ribbon I used again some unknown origin purple from my stash and edged it with the dainty lace edge ribbon from our Boutique Cuts selections, edging it on both sides.  To my bow I added a Glazed Brad from Basic Grey…..I like the extra touch.  Three small pearls on the right lower corner finish off the card.

I hope you enjoyed the post today and will begin to follow me in the future.  Thanks for your precious time.
