Some Wonderful Eye Candy

Norma Davenport, my TJ friend who lives in AL, sent me this beautiful card for my birthday! She just had shoulder surgery not too long ago and she is sending me the card, and a gorgeous card at that. She used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the 4 embossed areas and punches for the leaves. The dogwood flower is beautiful too. Thank you so much Norma for making my birthday even more special. I celebrate all year long. :-)

This next piece of eye candy is also blog candy from a fellow blogger, Heather Fullerton, on Enchanted Stamping. If you haven't been to her blog you need to get on over there. She makes the most beautiful cards and is such an artist.

I believe this stamp is Butterfly - Stamp Zia . If you haven't seen her site, check it out. There is something for everybody. All of the images are embossed with and a gold embossing powder. She has mounted a really good sized eyelet on the top. Then she created a beautifully wired clear blue pebble, threaded it with a blue ribbon and the flower. She mounted that through the hole using ribbon as a wrap around knot. And there you have it. A gorgeous piece and I am going to hang it. I haven't decided whether to frame it or not yet. Thank you, Heather.

And thank you all for stopping by 'the blog'.
