Get Well Debbie!!

I made this card today for Debbie Marcinkiewicz from the Simple Treasures blog.   If you like paper crafts and everything elegant you have probably been introduced to Debbie.  I know her as the owner of the Shabby Tea Room - one of my favorite places to play but you can find her lots of other place as well - the Ribbon Reel blog challenge and Crafty Secrets for example.   Debbie recently had surgery and I'm sending her my get well wishes.  I hope you will stop by Debbie's blog and wish her a speedy recovery too!

To keep Debbie occupied while she recuperates she came up with  a blog challenge of her own.  Make something fabulous with  inspiration from this photo and include aqua, pink and pearls.   To make it even sweeter she is giving out a prize of 15 yards of hand died shabby vintage seam binding.    I thought this was a fab idea because now  beautiful creations to her specifications are just one click away. 

I only know Debbie from a few sweet comments she's left me on my blog, but I felt compelled to make something special for her.  I know she loves layers and roses so I let my imagination run wild.   I only regret that I didn't fit a tea cup in here somewhere.  I hope that this card makes her smile and that when she's resting she dreams of layers of vintage lace, paper roses, pearls and ribbons!  Get well SOON DEBBIE!!! 

Here are a few close up's.  I had to add a "D" to make it special for Debbie - this  stamp is from the Elegant Alphabet set from Serendipity.






I know I'm a little photo heavy here but I also wanted to share with you some signs of spring.  First are some lilacs I picked from my yard - and I wish you could smell how wonderful their scent is - it fills the whole room!

Next are some beautiful Daffodil's I got from a scouting friend.  She purchased them from a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society called Daffodil Days.  Aren't they spectacular? 
Thanks so much for having a look!  Have a beautiful day! 

Jeanne
