All Occasion Card - Sweet Pea Lemon Shortbread's On A Mushroom Digi

Hi friends.  I hope everyone is doing great!  I am feeling a little better.  Whatever this head stuff is; just won't go away.  I took antibiotics and they didn't help; so I am now waiting it out.  It has been overcast here in Southern CA; so our temperatures have been in the 80’s.  Fabulous weather for me; since I don’t really like the hot temperatures.

I had not created anything since before vacation; so my last post of a new creation was May 18th.  Wow!  Does anyone else have a challenge getting your creative Mojo back after not creating for almost a month?  It seems to get harder each time I take a break.  It took me a week before I could decided on a paper for the card I created just before this one.  It will be posted on June 18th.  

It is time for another progressive challenge with Sweet Pea Facebook group.  I love these challenges.  Each time you enter Part 1; you receive Part 2; which is the free digi for everyone who enters.  They are always so adorable.  Today is the last day to enter at 8 pm Mountain Time.  I am cutting it short this time.  LOL!

I am entering this card in the Path of Positivity Happiness challenge.  I do believe that Happiness is in the little things.  This little girl is so cute; just sitting on this mushroom.  She appears to be happy to me.  I also had to include a butterfly as well; because butterflies and flowers also make me happy.  I created this card for my mother; and I know she will love it.  

The dress is lavender; although it looks blue in this picture.  The paper with the dots is actually a lavender/bluish combo with light teal dots.  It is hard to photograph these colors.

  5. Wow - a lot going on for you right now Gloria! Not feeling well and writing up such an involved post with all those details would knock me for a loop! I've got a head cold going on now too and I know how you feel - it's evidently reached No. California, whatever is going round! Oh yeah, focus Ginny... your the colors you chose with the lavender and teal! The double ribbon is a beautiful element and I love the tip of using two die cuts behind your image! That certainly will solve a matting issue if a die cut is not of sufficient size alone - thanks for the tip! Delighted you are sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments!
