FWF: Happy Blessings

Hello! Happy Friday.  Today I have a card using some old ippity sets that have been neglected in my collection.  On this card, I used Regal Greetings and Life Is The Journey sets.  I was going for a shabby chic look.  I think this card will be perfect for a couple who just found out they are expecting!
I used papers from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose/Hattie collection.  I also added some chunky glitter to the frame behind the stamped bird and the text leaves (using SU punch).  I made the rolled roses myself.  I tied some butchers twine to the top of the pleated paper and frayed the ends.  I also frayed it a bit on the twine going through the tag towards the bottom.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I have been quite the slacker lately because I have been glued to the tube. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Olympics.  I love hearing the different stories the athletes tell from different countries.  I love seeing the families of the athletes in the stands, so proud, scared and nervous.  I cry a lot during the Olympics.  Sigh...My family knows that for two weeks-they are on their own! LOL!  My oldest came to me on Wednesday and said, "Will you PLEASE go to the grocery, mom"?  When the twins are older, we would love to take the boys on a big vacation during the Olympics.  I see Rio in our future....

Thanks for stopping by,

Emily

Hey girl! This is gorgeous. I love the soft elegant look of it.

I hate to admit that I have not watched any of the Olympics this year. I usually watch and do alot of crying too. This year I have just had so much going on I was afraid to start watching. I knew I would get hooked. lol I hope you made it to the grocery store. lol
