With Love and Honor

Okay, here's the skinny. My dear husband and I decided quite suddenly yesterday afternoon to head out of town for warmer weather when we learned that our furnace (boiler) will not be installed for another week and a half. I only had an hour or two of daylight to drive in so we hurriedly put our things together to get on the road as quickly as possible. Long story short, when I finally sat down today to make a card for my dear Aunt who will be 87 next week, I realized I put together a very odd assortment of stamps, paper and embellishments. I decided to make a challenge out of it though. Luckily, I had grabbed my Lucky Treasure Bag and most of my card is made up of clip art, buttons, fabric, lace and ribbon from my LT Bag! The sentiment is from the Typography plate by Artistic Outpost. My Aunt, my mother's sister, has always been a special part of my life, and is even more so now that my own mother is gone. I think she will appreciate the card and I sure hope her day is filled with much happiness. Best, Yvonne

That bag is certainly full of treasure as I adore all the bits 'n' pieces and that glorious image. Gorgeous composition.
Thank you for always being so kind about what I make. At the top of my Blog you should be able to click the "Follow" or you can also sign up to receive e-mail notification. I am sure it is a wordpress "thing" as I don't have the regular type of Followers box.
P.S. Happy Birthday to your dear Aunt!!
