MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS...a handmade non-cricut card

hello you all!
i am praying we all be safe with hurricane sandy...i guess we should call her miss sandy and she is something. what a diva! getting everyone bending at her desires and making everyone so scare of her.
i am just kidding of course, but please be safe and buy some non-perishable items, water and if you have a grill bring it in your garage to cook. that is what i am planning. I went to sam's club this morning and got myself a generator and after reading the instructions online (cause i did not want to open the box just yet) i got intimidated by it and i know my husband who is "mr not handy at all" :- P) will be more intimidated than i am. i will have to return it :(

today is sunday and i did all my wash and house ready for sandy (minus the generator) and i had time to make this pretty card for my shop but as most of the time i like to share these projects here too because, i am not extra crafting much these days.

Memories are Made of This
is a sentiment from one of theresa collin's clear stamps set
4.25" x 5.5 inches tall
 look how pretty, oh my! :D
the flower is a petaloo one dusted with diamond dust and inked and distressed the for the look i like so much. you can also see the theresa collins sentiment "memories are made of this" so cute!
---(remember you are at flowerdisco's blog) wink wink wink---are you? hehe

 the birds are from a glitz clear stamped set and inked with vintage ink from tim holtz. 
awesome image!

here is the whole card. 

and a close up of the flower and the diamond dust bling.

hope you like it as much as i do.

hopefully sandy does not do much damage and her fury turns into a mild tantrum and maybe we do not have to scrap a page where "memories are made of this". 

and please-please!!!!---do not take me wrong...i am not taking things lightly with this hurricane. i come from an island and know how much damage hurricanes can do but i am trying to put a smile on your face and maybe take your mind off of it, the same way i am trying to take my mind off it too. my husband works in nj and if he gets stuck in work i am here all by myself, with lulu and going crazy about my son who is in boston. so you see, i can't be taking things lightly :(

take care now and a big hug to you all!
