Thank You

Thank you all for your good wishes & concern.  I'm much better--just taking a long time to get rid of all the crud.  Hubby's hand may not blister after all--so far, so good!  There's never a shortage of inspiration to play along in the PTI CAWU challenge.  This month I kept going back to admire Melissa's wreath card on Day 2 of the release.  I really love her organic wreath & use of lace--2 of my favorite things.  Now I have Gathered Garden on my wishlist! 
For my wreath I used stamps from Turning a New Leaf & Friendship Jar Flowers stamped in Spring Moss, Classic Kraft & Sweet Blush.  The die cuts from The Sweet Life were stamped in Spring Moss (double for the details), Sweet Blush (double for the second layer) & Melon Berry.  The sentiment from Friendship Jar Flowers was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa & I used it for splatters, too.  My neighbor just gave me some old sheet music & I used it instead of patterned paper--sponging the edges with DI.  I have a sack of lace & this is one of my favorites, but it's almost gone.  The left over piece of twisted hemp was on my table & just fit.  Instead of putting more flowers at the top of my wreath, I made a Melissa junk bow.  Finished off with pink Nuvo drops & this will soon be in the mail.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
