 Are you sitting down?
that's a stupid silly question!
If you are reading this more than likely you are already sitting down.'
Right now it's a few minutes before midnight on  Friday!
Still sitting? or better yet, still with me?
I have completed my D2D card already!
It's not due til next Thursday and it is done.
'Pail of Flowers' is very nice and an idea popped into my
head and I couldn't let go til it was done.

Dazzling diamonds, folded corners, distressing, ribbon, and  embellishments are all ways to cover up
the wee mistakes that happen to one of us every day. But three cover ups
on one card? I have rec'd awesome advice in the past about not putting the stickles on til the card is done.
In one ear and out the other!!!!
One smear of Stickles just where an embellishment couldn't hide it or a ribbon..solution...fold.
Coloring outside the lines..solution...glittery flower.
Black smear caused by pencils and printer ink...solution... Dazzling Diamonds.
I was thinking of a flower pot, obviously when i saw this image. The flower pots that were very popular about a year ago. The flowers came out the top and held the sentiment. the base looked just like a fp.
I know this is not a pot, but a rusty old can, but wait......
It took some planning, but managed to just think this card is the BOMB.
Do ppl still say that...the BOMB?
Faith at Delightful Inspiration made this image "Pail of Flowers" for her Mom.
Her Mom loves quilts.
It's getting late and i am very tired. Early day tomorrow.
Thanks for coming by!
Need any more info...leave a message and I'll get back to you..

Wow, Joanne, what an absolutely fabulous creation! I love how you covered up the "mistakes" and if you hadn't admitted to them, we wouldn't have ever all looks so beautiful! The pull-out is brilliant and I love all the sparkle. Thanks for playing in this week's D2D progressive challenge and can't wait to see what you do with next week's image!
Aloha, Kim Mc

Jo, I just recovered from the shock! ;)

I love your card! I have to admit I think this is my new favorite. It looks so pretty with the sparkle in the photos, I bet it is a knock out IRL.

Have a great week!
