For You

MFTWSC174Beautiful monthly color combo at MFT & a neat sketch for the weekly MFT challenge, so I combined them.
Print






The 3 flowers let me also enter my card at CAS-ual Fridays, although I'm not sure about the 1/3 of the card requirement. My sentiment is stamped & embossed, so I think that qualifies for the May challenge at STAMPlorations--first time to enter there.  I used MFT Prima Donna Petals dies for my flowers & the sentiment is from MFT Tag You're It.  I really like the debossed side of the vellum for a background--done with a Cuttlebug folder.  I used a Spellbinder square die to emboss my frame & cut both ends of my scrap with MFT Fishtail Flags. Snippets were used for everything but the card itself, so I'll take this over to Pixies Snippets Playground.
Saturday was special:  hubby felt well enough to take care of himself for a few hours, I dropped Fritz off at the vet as a boarder & I headed north to meet an old friend I used to work with over 20 years ago.  She calls me every year on my birthday, but we've only seen each other once since she moved to Texas.  Her granddaughter was graduating from college with a degree in nursing & in between events she took time out to go to lunch with me.  
It was fun & the waiter gladly snapped this picture for us.  Thanks so much for your visit & leaving me a comment.
Edited to Add: Just realized I can add this card to the lottery at SSS Wednesday where it's Anything Goes!
