Another Shabby Tea Room Entry - Feel Better!

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Needed another card this week. One of my little Sunday School girls had her tonsils taken out. I thought she might enjoy getting some girlie 'get well' wishes in the mail. She LOVES pink, so I thought I would put it with creme and post it in The Shabby Tea Room - Embrace the White challenge. You can get some of your own luscious creamy white inspiration by visiting there yourself at
Chloe is six...I thought she would like seeing her name in glitter! I glam'd the rest of it up a little with some Prima flowers, Glimmerz paint, Shimmer Spritz and pearls. Thought it turned out kinda sweet!

Thanks for visiting me again! Can't wait for the new challenge on Monday!

  4. Oh, how sweet! I'm sure this was a big hit with your little "patient" friend. great detailing and a beautiful, girly look.
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I'm so glad you are enjoying the challenges at The Shabby Tea Room. I have to admit to chuckling to myself over your lovely comments about my photography, because in all honesty, I do struggle with getting decent photos. So I really don't have a lot of advice in that department. I have found that for myself, I've had to experiment with different settings and locations for getting the best photos. The light inside my house never really seems good enough, so I have the best success outside. And I've learned to keep my projects out of direct sunlight and shadows. The best time seems to be in the middle of the day while there's plenty of light, but when my back deck is not in sunlight. Cloud cover makes for the best exposure, even. I do tend to keep my camera on the automatic setting. Occasionally I switch the setting to macro for close up photos. Sorry I'm not more help than that. All I can advise is for you to keep trying and find that perfect "sweet spot" in or out of your house that will give you the best conditions.

  5. This is beautiful! I just love all the Little detail!

  6. Beautiful, Geri! She surely loved receiving this. Thx for checking in on me last week. Hope to get back in the game this week or next. It was great having family in. Best of luck *today* with the contest deadline!!
