Perfectly Lovely

I am trying out new things and thanks to Linda Coughlin who owns The Funkie Junkie I have bought lots of neat stuff.  Now I just have to figure out how to use all the neat stuff!!  This is a thank you card I have made for a special friend who does "perfectly lovely" art work.  I mean like her work is FANdangTASTIC!  I sure wish you would check her out - it's a secret but I will give you her blog address Scrap Affair.

Thar she blows!  I am entering my thank you card in the following challenge.

Our Creative Corner - There is a picture for inspiration - use at least three buttons and some polka dots.

It's hard to see but my polka dots are in the corner die on the left hand side and in the small blue flower on the right hand side.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying fair weather.  I really appreciate your visits and all the sweet comments!

I have so missed all your fun and fabulous cards. Glad you are feeling like crafting again and glad it is fun for you. Your card is beautiful and I love it.
Denise went home, things are getting back to normal and I think you will be hearing from me much more often. Jasper just kept interferring with my time on the computer, he wanted grandma to hold him a lot. lol!! He is such a fun and happy baby. I will send you some photos of him.
Great card, again I love it!

And... honey, you do make me blush!
I think all your friends (and you are too!) quite talanted-I still have a lot to learn.I am not used to hear so much about my work, and don't really know what to say...

I am just glad that you are feeling better!

Auntie Sandy,
This is a beautiful card and my favorite part is the doily flower with the swirly leaves and hearts. I love the DP in the different designs and how you placed them. The lace ribbon and buttons are "perfectly Lovely" as they compliment your design. Your card is refreshing and I love it.
Country Hugs, Kelly

This is such a great card and I like the different patterns, textures and shapes. I love that row of buttons and you must have a lot of patience to add thread to seven of them. I also really like how you've attached your sentiment. It's always so enjoyable to visit other cardmaker's blogs. There is so much inspiration and so many great ideas out there - thanks for sharing this gorgeous piece.
