Crafty Gals - Celebrating CAROLINA!

I bet you didn't know that today was a holiday!  It's CAROLINA DAY!  Ok, most people don't know about Carolina Day - but those of us in the Crafty Gals blog group over at SCS know about Carolina Day...it's a day to celebrate our friend Carolina!  Now she is one amazing card maker!!!  When I was going through her blog trying to find a card to use for inspiration, I just couldn't find one.  I mean they are ALL so lovely!!!  So instead of trying to use one card for inspiration, I decided to use one of her styles....I noticed that many of her cards have sewing or paper piercing on them....and this is something that I just haven't done.  So why not give it a shot!  LOL!!  I must admit, I'm not too thrilled with my first attempt at this...but I didn't have a lot of time to make this card this morning.  Yep, made it before work this morning.  And it goes in the mail tomorrow believe it or not.  I've been blessed with the opportunity to join a group who sends cards weekly to people who have brain cancer.  I got my first assignments this week so cards go out tomorrow.  This card is going to a little girl who is 6 years old.  So Carolina, you have not only inspired me to try a new technique, but you are also going to be brightening the day of a little 6 year old girl this week!!!

OH Zella... you just killed me... not only for your amazing words for me but for the purpose of your card!!!. You got it so right...I love stitching and piercing in my cards, they don't look complete for me if they haven't been sewed or pierced. I love you image and soft colours. Thanks again. I'll be back soon!!! LOVE!!!
