Let's Go Shopping!

Hello blogging friends! Can I just say right now that blogging friends are the MOST GENEROUS, SWEET people out there!!!?  Recently I have received a few packages from some adorable friends and I am more than grateful for their gift and their friendships!  You know who you are!!!!

I have made my card today with a few of the surprises I received.  

EEEEK! Look at those papers! My friend knows how much I like these papers and it is so hard for us Americans to get our hands on them.  Well, I straight away had to use them for my card.  These are Pion Designs papers.

This card is for the new Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar challenge where the super talented Claudia has chosen the theme "Non-Traditional Sentiments".  Instead of the same ole Happy Birthday, Get Well, etc. use something unique or quircky on your cards.  My tag says:

I colored my image with distress inks.

I love how the plum colored Trellis Rose matched perfectly with these papers.  You know how purples can be!  I also used Cherry Blossoms and 15mm Open Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts!

The purple tulip and stick pen are from my friend that sent me these papers and the lace is from a different friend.  Boy, do I feel special or what!  Thank you girls!

I hope you will be sure and check out what the design team has done.  They are so much better at the sentiment cards than I am and some are super funny!

Thank you for being such awesome friends! It puts a smile on my face!

Hugs, Dena
