Thinking of You

How is it that taking down your Christmas decorations is such a huge project.  It's like Humpty Dumpty to get everything back together again.  The cleaning, the organizing, and the putting away plumb wears me out.  So I did have a little bit of time to play this weekend.  
Here is a card I made for the Teaparty over at Splitcoast Stampers.  My card is going to Texas this week to Sherry who needs a pick-me-up.  We are to bring flower and we get extra cookies for a butterfly or two.  I managed a couple of butterflies!
 
Got to play with my new Marianne and Joy Craft dies.  The roses are Spellbinders and the punch around the page is Martha Stewart.   The paper is K & Company and I sprinkled some pearls about along with some stickles.  The stamped sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  I will see you soon.

Carol, an amazing card! I'd want to keep this forever on a little easel - beautiful. I have that PAP, too, and now want to use it the way you have, it looks amazing! Your colors are so soft and feminine - and very elegant. Thanks for sharing another glimpse into your lovely soul.

I thought I would tiptoe over here....kwim? Roll Tide Roll!!!!!!!!!! Did you see my blog last night? No? Too late now.

I LOVE your beautiful card. It is a Carol masterpiece.

I took down my tree over the weekend and have a bit to go with the other decorations. I didn't do many this year because of the renovations. Now, I'm glad I didn't. They're so fun putting up but when it comes time to take down, I want to run away.

This is delightful, Carol! I know this card will cheer Sherry up immensely. Glad to hear your Christmas decorations are all packed away now. It's always such a chore, isn't it? But at least it's all done now! Have a fabulous week, my friend!
