Happy Friday, my lovelies!
Can you believe I have another card to show you already? I've become a card-making machine this week, and I've made even more that I can't show you yet.
I really enjoyed making this one. The image is so sweet, isn't it? It was one of my recent prize wins. It's from Digi Darla Designs and it's called Blowing Dandelions. On the inside of the card I included an Irish Blessing but I forgot to take a picture of it.It says:
May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus too, 
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.

I thought this verse worked well with the sweet image and the sentimen on the front. Thanks very much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of joy and laughter! :o)

Tracy said...

Hmmmm???? I could have sworn the owner of this blog claimed she didn't do cards not all that long ago. hee hee She's precious and I just love the way you've used the buttons on this card. Think I'll be stealing the idea of adding them between the banner flags. Hope you're having a great weekend too. It's gorgeous here and if the foresters hadn't decided to control burn I'd have been outside soaking up the sun. sigh....maybe tomorrow. Hugs!
