I broke my nose on one of these contraptions!!!!!

So have you been to the Close to My Heart  July Blog Hop
Joyce has an awesome card posted using some of the new CTMH products. 
There are prizes involved!!!!

But don't go yet. 

 I want you to look at this darling card I just finished.   
(Ribbon from LoveBug Creations; sentiment stamps are CTMH)

When I first saw this image (a digi by Lacy Sunshine) I was immediately transported back to kindergarten and the day I was perched up in the air much like the snail and the gnome at the bottom, without warning, suddenly hopped off.  At that point I quickly plummeted to the groundand fell off the see-saw, which bounced, and hit me in the face, breaking my nose and releasing a torrent of blood on my pink coat.  Ahhhh  Memories.......

I am entering this card in these challenges:
Lacy Sunshine Challenge #12 - Anything Goes (include a hand colored image)

  1. OMGOsh I love the flower bling! I would so hoard those too. Great image and design and I love the mushroom embossing, it fits this so well. I laughed at your seesaw memmory, that was so sad and I bet you didn't like the seesaw for a long time after that one! Thanks for playing with us over at Loves Rubberstamps!

  2. cute little gnome image and the embossing folder is perfect for it!

  9. Oh my goodness, Debi! How fun to visit your blog today and find a great assortment of cards - so pretty, and lots of different subject matter and colors. Thanks for sharing your before and after photos from losing your tree. How sad to lose an old friend like that. One of the things we do is collect all the hoses and potted plants before tropical storms come to our area, so they don't fly through the air like missiles. My favorite project is yesterday's pretty sunflower and butterfly digi image - it is beautiful. Thanks, too, for sharing about your mom. Hope all is well, hugs, de
