FTTC98, Mojo171 For You....

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

It's been freezing cold down here in Georgia...yikes!!! Thank goodness we don't have snow!!! Living in Michigan for 6 years cured me of all my snow desires...LOL!!! Hope you all are safe and sound though!!! I'm definitley ready for some warmer weather...how about you?!?

We have a fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC98 going on today!!! Betty is our challenge host and she is challenging everyone to add *PEARLS* to your creations!!! Pretty easy right....go and embellish your cards and play along with us :) !!! Can't wait to see what you all create!!!



I need a lot of birthday cards in January....it starts out with my sweet hubby, then my mom, my little sister and some friends and so on!!! Today's card is for my mommy....she is turning *60* and since I can't be there celebrating this big event with her I have to at least send her this birthday card!!!

My card idea started out with this weeks Mojo171 Sketch (I opted for the square layout) and this weeks CR84FN8.












I got myself in the mood for warmer weather with this beautiful Flourishes Cherry Blossoms Set. I think it compliments Mona's color challenge perfectly!!! Hope spring comes soon...LOL!!!I inked the blossom in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic MarkersR0000, R00, R30, R35, C1, C2 and Colorless Blender. The DP is from the SU Walk in the Park Collection. I added some Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, an Antique Brad, some Silver Pearls and some Silver Beaded Cord. At last I added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter to the blossom...voila!!! I hope my mommy is gonna like it :) ?!?

Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~ Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's !!! Make sure to check out the Flourishes Year End Sale as well!!!

Beautiful Silke! Love this pretty set.
It is cold here too. I am just one state over in AL. We DID get snow on Christmas day and yesterday. It was beautiful! I lived in Iowa for 13 years and I miss the snow...especially during the holidays.

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Have you entered my new candy

Gorgeous card, Silke. When I first started reading the list of people with January birthdays and saw Jerry first, I thought this was for him! LOL! I'm sure he'd love it! The grey is kinda masculine...

And look at you with a TRIPLE bow! You go girl! Stay warm...

Dawn Easton said...

Oh.My.Gosh.Gorgeous!

Love those soft pretty colours and your beautifully coloured image!!!

Hope it warms up for you! If I lived somewhere somewhat warm, I'd hate the cold air or snow too! Not that I don't hate it here...lol but it's par for the course up here :( Someday I'm moving somewhere it doesn't snow...eva ;)

*Vicki* said...

Gorgeous as always, Silke! I love the pink and gray combo with the sparkle on the blossoms. We did not get any more snow thank goodness. Did you get any yet? I say yet because this winter has definitely come in like a lion! LOL! Enjoy your time off!

Wanda Cullen said...

Wow, Silke, this is GORGEOUS and your mom will just love it! I have searched our Mike's high and low and that beaded cord is no place to be found! :-) Guess I'll just have to admire yours - lol! I'm with you on the snow...don't care if I never see it again.

iReneM said...

Oh, Wow this is beautiful.
Love the colour combo. I do like how you have fixed the beaded cord to the ribbon with the brad/button - very elegant.

We are prett cold here in NW Florida too - cold enough that we might as well had snow just to make the cold worth while. I have had to scrape ice off my windshield more this winter than in all the other 12 winters we have lived here combined!!!!
