The Flower In My Garden lo & a Thank You card

Well, it's Friday again!!!  We have a new challenge at Frosted Designs, which is to use a quote in your creation. Easy one, right?
Here's the lo I made for this challenge, using DCWV cs (Cafe' Mediterrnean stuck I just got)and October Afternoon's dp (Fly a Kite paperpad):

I used the Dec 1st sketch from Stuck?!:

The spring theme was chosen for my take on my own challenge to my bloggy friend, Tesa. I challenged her to make a summer theme layout, with bright colors. I guess "spring" is cheerful too, right?
I love those flowers that I've made from the same dp I used on the lo. I also used the same dp for the punched butterflies (MS punch) and for the long leaves behind. The measuring tape is from Ikea, attached with staples, and sprayed with glimmer mist and inked with distress ink. I'm not sure where the chipboard with the quote is from, and the thin green ribbon is from a prize I won at Paper Niche awhile ago. I also used some butterflies rub-ons, rhinestones and blings and I handstitched the frame.
The photo is of my eldest, a few years ago, at Carmel mountain, and the title says: :"The Flower in my garden".
here are some close-ups on the blooms and butterflies:

The flower on the bottom was made out of little tiny scraps of all dp's I used on this lo. I simply took all those little tiny pieces and adhered them on a white cs, so I got a "new" dp, and then I cut the circles for the flower. That is what one may call 'being frugal... I love how it turned out. Here's a close up on that flower:

I'm entering this lo for the following challenges: allsorts; ces; osaat; mttc (the cs is brand new); paperplay; aly's sunday; opus gluei; cyda

At Simply Create (the new name of former Simple Doodles)  we have also a new challenge, and an easy one too - embossing.
So on my card I just combined them both... LOL
On this card I used one of the stamps from LiaStampz, which is the sponsor of this week's challenge at Frosted Designs:

For this card, I used the sketch from Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards:

I'm entering this card also for  papertake weekly;

Please pop over to see what my DT sisters made for those challenges, both at Frosted Designs and at Simply Create. They really outdid there selves, with tons of creativity! Join us in the fun, we would love to see your creations.
Happy New Year!!!! Welcome 2011, may it be a better year, and may all your dreams come true!

את הדף הזה הכנתי לאתגר של "ציטטה" ב- Frosted Designs. בדיוק קיבלתי את הסטאק היפהפה של Cafe' Mediterranean של DCWV, ומשם לקחתי את הקארדסטוק שכל כך התאים בצבעים שלו לתמונה ולדפים המדוגמים של October Afternoon מ"מסטיקים", משם גם האותיות של הכותרת, "תוצרת הארץ", שנצבעו קלות בצבע אדמדם, להבליט אותן מעל הנייר. אני מאד אוהבת את הורסטיליות של האותיות הללו! בניירות המדוגמים השתמשתי גם לפאנצ' הפרפרים, וגם ליצירת הפרחים. הפרח התחתון נוצר משאריות קטנטנות של הדפים המדוגמים, שהודבקו על קארדסטוק לבן, כך שנוצר לי 'דף מדוגם חדש'. סרט המידה מאיקאה והסרט הדק הירוק שמעליו הוא מפרס שזכיתי בו לאחרונה. הוספתי גם כמה ראב-אונים של פרפרים ותפירה ביד של המסגרת לדף.
התמונה היא של הבכור, לפני כמעט 5 שנים, בחי בר בכרמל. המקום כבר לא נראה כך, למרבה הצער.

הכרטיס שהכנתי הוא כרטיס תודה, ונעשה לאתגר של אמבוסינג שמתחיל היום ב- Simply Create (החלפת שם לבלוג של Simple Doodles). החותמת היא של נותנת החסות לאתגר ב- Frosted Designs, והכיתוב הוא חותמת דיגיטלית מ-raindropecho.

היום מסתיימת שנת 2010, שהיתה עבורי שנה קשה למדי. שנה של התמודדות עם קשיים לא פשוטים שנוגעים לבן הצעיר שלי, עם תאונת עבודה בה נפגעתי בגב, ועם אסון השריפה בכרמל. אני מקווה ומאחלת, לי ולכולם, ששנת 2011 תהא מוצלחת בהרבה.

תודה על תשומת הלב ושיהיה סופ"ש חמים ונעים, עם הגשם שסוף סוף מגיע קצת לפה.
