It is snowing like crazy in South Alabama - we only get snow once every few years and it usually melts when it hits the ground - but today we have enough snow for a snowman. I may venture out and make one later.
Since we are closed at work, I had time to join the teaparty. I decided to play in this teaparty but also in last week's party as well. I didn't have a lighthouse stamp because I sent mine to the lighthouse freak (you know who you are) and the only sea/beach image I could find was this anchor image. Since this is a sympathy card for a sweet family who just lost their sweet daughter, I tried to cross nautical and girly. I am not sure how the flowers work on this - I put them on and took them off a bunch of times and finally decided they kind of look like sea foam and kept them.
Hey everyone - I missed you all! Is Curt here? Where are the sugar free cookies?

Hiya Nancy - it looks as if we benefit from your bad weather!
I think this works beautifully - the anchor and verse make a strong statement for a sympathy card, and the embossed background works so well with the soft flowers. I definitely like them! This reminds me of when we went to an exhibition of marine-influenced fashion, uniforms and costumes one time in Paris. The flowers definitely would fit in on some of the dresses we saw!

Well, Nancy, I for one LOVE your flowers!!! I think they go so perfectly with your embossed background! I am so happy you are thinking of the family from last week's teaparty. I imagine it will add another bit of sunshine as you extend the teaparty :) Beautiful verse, reminding us to hope! Gorgeous card!
(We have some snow, but not enough for a snowman) Hope you are staying warm too!
