Guest Designer for 7 Kids...

Hi friends...oooh...I'm so excited to have been chosen as a Guest Designer for this fortnight's challenge over at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog!! The theme this time is an easy and timely one for me since my daughter's birthday is coming up the first week in November!!
Amy will be 38...which means I can no longer tell people I'm in my forties! LOL!! So...I chose some yummy DPs from Memory Box called "Spiceberry"...and then picked a delightful little image from Whiff of Joy called "Willow with Hot Chocolate". It seemed perfect for Amy because she is truly a "supermom" and is always doing things for everyone else and seldom takes time to just sit and enjoy even a few moments over a warm beverage! (Keep in mind, she lives in cold weather hasn't hit quite yet. But still...she needs to relax once in a while!!) So, since fall is in the air over much of this country, I decided to go with a fall/winter theme.

Here are a couple of photos from the sides...
And, a pic of the inside of the have to look hard to see the cute little "cup" charm... Here's my card "recipe":

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler (one of their yummy new colors!)& Very Vanilla (SU)
Flowers: Prima
Pearls & Flourishes: from ZVA (Tab carries them at 7 Kids)
Sentiment: Just Rite Stamps
Ribbon & charm: stash
