For Paisley

Hello, blog friends!  The weather here in Tennessee has been crazy warm, and we have had no snow this year!  It was 73 last night in Memphis when the severe thunderstorms went through.  I must have been really tired, because they didn't wake me up!   It is January 24, 2012, a Tuesday, and it is near 60* outside, and I have daffodils ready to bloom!
This card is for a little girl at church, named Paisley.  She has a terminal disease called Neimens Pick Syndrome, a very rare condition similar to Alzheimers, where the nervous system shuts down over time.  I just wanted to cheer her up, and this image from Nicecrane Designs was cute for a little girl.  The yellow, peach, green, white and blue together just looked cheery to me.

This ribbon makes the most beautifullest bows!  If you'd like some, I have about 30 rolls of it!  Just email me.

My friend, Donna, has supplied me with many diecuts, and the white one here is one of them.  It just frames this picture nicely!


The flower die I used for these I got from Joan's Gardens, but I don't remember the name of it.  I love the way they turned out, and the stamens I found in the cake decorating department of Joanns.

I found this cute little lamb stamp in amongst some other small ones from Stampin' Up.

Here is a complete list of materials I used: 

Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals and Nested Oval Medallion Labels dies
Wrights Prestige Moire Ribbon, white, 1 1/2" wide
Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3372 Dutch Iris Frame Precut Stamp (sentiment)
Diecut frame from friend, Donna
Stampin' Up - cardstock, Lamb stamp
DCWV - Glitter stack cardstock
Pearls from my stash
Ink - Versafine Onyx
Dragonfly from stash
EK Success-Scalloped Flower border punch

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!  I love hearing from you!  Thanks for visiting!
