More Than Favors~CCCC #25 Challenge

Hello Everyone,

I am so touched by all of my blogger friends who left me such sweet comments regarding my son. I am just amazed how many wonderful friends I have made through my blog. You are all amazing and I am so grateful for you! Thank you so much  for your prayers and your friendship!  It was a very long day yesterday but his surgery went well. We are home now and he is on his way to recovery. Yeah!!

Today I was able to get  into my craft room and squeeze in a quick card for a challenge at More Than Favors ~CCCC #25 ~Sweethearts cartridge. I cut this shaped card from the Birthday Bash cartridge using my gypsy at 10.71 x 5.93, circle at 4.54 x 5.13. I  embossed it with a flower folder that came in the Once Upon a Princess companion set. The cake was from the Sweethearts cartridge cut at 5.00 x 4.23 plus the layers. I embossed the cake with divine swirls folder and added some bling, prima flower and a pretty heart pin. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot ~Sweet Sentiment Set #2. Hope to be back tomorrow!

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K
