Live the Life...

Imagined....


I so really want to tell myself that right now!
But, of course, this card isn't for me.  It's for a dear sweet friend who I believe has made a change and I believe she is finally achieving what some of what she imagines.  She believes in herself and I am so happy to see that strength of spirit.

I'm featuring this card over on the 3GirlJAM Challenge blog today.  But let me tell you a little about the other stuff I used.

That gorgeous button in the center of the flower is from my favorite home based awesome business, Pinque Peacock.

And so is that Navy crinkle ribbon from 3GirlJAM!

I just love the fact that these buttons are handcrafted in the USA, the owners are home based enthusiastic business owners, and interacting with "customer service" is interacting with the CEO!    Oh and some CEO who is already rich, isn't getting the bulk of the profits...it's going in direct support of the FAMILY!  What's not to love about that.

All the other products are StampinUp! some of which are in the new catalog
- The DSP (SOHO Subway) - all of it from the flower to the beautiful yellow medallion
- Crumb Cake cardstock
- Midnight Muse Ink (inColor)
- Whisper White cardstock
- Daffodil 1/8" Taffeta (retired)

Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
