Happy 90th Birthday

I'd thought I'd share a card with you that I made for a dear 90 year old lady.  She is the mother of a very good friend of mine and I've known her for years.
Oh I just noticed that the small heart on the right hand side is crooked.  I'll be sure to fix that as soon as I finish this post.  I used Soft Sky, Whisper White and the sentiment stamp all from SU!.  The flourish from Cherry Lynn (which I cut in half to make larger) and the flowers from a punch I've had for years and I have no idea who it is by, while the heart punch is by MS.   I ran a gold Sharpie pen around the SB dies just to make them stand out a bit more.  I also embossed the white panel with a Cuttlebug Heart folder.  
This lady is still (at 90) playing Mrs. Claus, Mother Goose and does face painting for children at all sorts of different events.  She is a remarkable person and it doesn't look like she is going to retire any time soon.  I wish I had half of her energy.   That will have to do it for me for a couple of days. Thank you very much for stopping by.

Deedee's DOM Challenge

Happy Tuesday All,  I'm here today to share a card I made for Deedee Anderson's Digi of the month challenge found here.  This is a precious set titled Polar Peace and has darling images and wonderful sentiments.
I used the pre-colored image and just added a few scattered dots around the image.  It is cut out with SB dies and the sentiment was just made with a hand cut banner.  I used a Snowflake embossing folder.  This seems to be a very busy couple of weeks for me so this set came in very handy to be able to use a pre-colored image to cut my card making time in half.  If you haven't stopped by Deedee's please head on over there and join us in the fun.  If you played along last month you've already received this set in your email, if not you can purchase it at a very low price and then you will get next month's set free of charge.  I do wish you all a wonderful day and I hope to be able to get back to visiting and commenting on a regular basis very soon. See ya soon.
