Just for You

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed day. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog, sharing a wintry creation. One of my favorite aspects of Pion Design papers is that they are timeless. I went back to Pion's older Days of Winter collection, as this beautiful image was calling me.♥︎
The vintage image is from Lilly and Siri, as are the solid pink and purple striped papers. The lovely snowflake paper is from the Silent Night collection, which unfortunately has been discontinued. Sandy still has a few left if you'd like to scoop it up. Ruffly, pearly, and sparkly trims abound.
I made a sweet pair of skates to hang from pearl string and nestled the My Craft Spot sentiment within a Melissa Frances resin frame.  The skates are a cut file from Forever Memories for You, of which I intend to make a large version eventually. The flowers are sprinkled with Glamour Dust, as is the frame. A few more of Sandy's pearl goodies are incorporated throughout, which you'll find listed below. :o)

This will soon be off to another heartbroken mother to remind her that she is dearly loved and never alone. It is merely a card, but I pray it delivers light to her darkened heart.  ♥︎

Dies used: Joy! Crafts Frame & 3 Corners, along with matching Border; Tattered Lace Beloved Borders atop vintage image; Cheery Lynn Designs Snowflakes.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎
