Morning everyone! It is another gorgeous day here in NE Kentucky and I'm loving our 80+ degrees and sunny skies! It's hay season so it's a busy time of year...and it's also a sneezy time of year! Both my boys have hay fever...but neither me nor my husband do! However, we have many relatives on both sides of the family who suffer. So we are doing Kleenex and homeopathic allergy drops and just making the best of it knowing it will pass soon.
We have sad new for Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog...this will be my last week as a Sundae Girl because the Paper Sundaes blog is closing. We've had two wonderful years, but the stress of keeping everything hopping has put pressure on our wonderful leaders so they've decided it's just time to say goodbye.
Our final challenge this week is easy--Pretty In Pink--and we have Michelle's Scrapbooking and More for a wonderful sponsor.
I decided to feature a cute little Magnolia image for my card...
I just love this paper...yeah it's the same paper you saw a couple days ago. Okay, so it's even the same color combination, but hey, why mess with a good thing, right? I paper pieced little Pondering Tilda's dress and gave her a nice sparkly bow. The sentiment is by Verve Stamps...I went over the "okay" with a clear Spicca pen, so it's shimmery.
I like the sentiment because it's perfect for when you know someone is going through a hard time, but you just aren't sure what to say. This card is going to an 85 year old widow in my congregation who was beaten up by thugs in her home this past Thursday! They stole $6000 and she was strangled and beaten. But the woman is feisty and while they held her down she kicked them "where it counts" until the attacker let her go. So since I'm not quite sure what to tell her, I figured this will work. I just feel HORRIBLE about the incident. Such wickedness in this world!
I hope you will join us as we celebrate our last Paper Sundaes Challenge--help us to say goodbye!
