Hello, Thinking of you!

This is my second post for today.  Please click HERE for 'Hope In A Jar.'

I'm back again today, and would've saved it for later, but I'm playing in some Wplus9 challenges and one closes very soon.


I'm new to the Wplus9 challenges.  It feels good to participate!  I've wrapped two-into-one, and I hope that's okay with owner Dawn.  :-)

I've got their Birthday Celebration Week 1 challenge, which is "Comfort Zone," as in, create within your own comfort zone.  Those of you who follow my blog know this is right in my zone!  I've got pearls, a doily, lacy things, and a very feminine feel.  Ahhhh.

This entry also goes into Wplus9's Monday Mood Board.  Look at this pretty assortment of things to be inspired by:


I used nearly everything in the photo:  kraft card base, pink paper flowers, 'hello' (mine is a Memory Box die), petite pink flowered paper, pearls, a doily, lace.  My heart is singing!

One more challenge to enter:  The Card Concept -- Monochromatic Pink.  I hope this counts.  I've used neutrals plus pinks, including that deep raspberry pinkish red for the 'hello' die.  I'd classify this card as Shabby Chic, since we need to choose a design style for this challenge.

The pale pink stamped doily and sentiment are from Mehndi Medallions, one of those sets I just adore.


Papers came from Authentique's 'Lovely' collection, and the lace came from a generous friend.  :-)


Thank you SO much for the lovely comments you leave.  They make my day!  Take care, and be well.
