a happy hello to you all

 i am there every other wednesday but the challenges are weekly challenges and they run for two weeks. so there is plenty of time for you join us. actually, we would love it if you do...the more the merrier, right?  always have nice sponsors so  the ride is well worthy.
our sponsor for this week is:
5 digi's of winner's choice

May You Find Peace and Comfort
4.25" x 5.5"
since the death of my son's best friend (a 20 yrs. old college student) i realized i do not have any cards for a time of sorrow. i really hope i do not have to use this card any soon, nonetheless, it is a beauty.
don't you agree?
sorry i have to pat myself on the back sometimes :D
---i love the font on this sentiment---

the rose is a sticker and is gorgeous.
i chose it because it has the distressed look i was incorporating onto my card.
the doily is a die cut die and the pink border a border/edge punch.

i also did the sewing machine zig zag that i have been incorporating in my projects lately.
 i believe it adds so much to a project.

actually the sentiment can be used for an everyday reminder to self
---"may you find peace and comfort"... in everyday---

we would love you to see what you make. click here for a couple of guidelines and to link your project. you will also want to see what my teammates have made for this challenge: they do pour their souls out while making their projects.
for this challenge, we are supposed to use a sketch but other than that, it is a pretty easy going challenge...
here is the sketch just to give you an idea of what you will be following
 see? so pretty but yet so simple. the rest is up to you.

this is the list the
supplies i used
for my card, in case you are interested.

patterned paper and rose sticker:     carta bella (beautiful moments)
doilie:     sizzix die
border:      fiskars border/edge punch
gray enamel dot on the left:     my mind's eye (the sweetest thing-honey collection)

i am always happy to see you not be shy and at least click on the share button, if you like my project. let others see what we paper crafters are all about.

thanks so much and  maybe the sentiment i used today
"May you Find Peace and Comfort" 
will just do that for us today and every other day.
hugs to all!
