Homespun Hugs

Around here, I'm glad its Friday. I hope the weather holds out for us this weekend, I could use some fresh air and sunshine. Are you planning anything for the weekend?

The card I would like to share with you today was inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World Blog. I interpreted the photo pretty literally, as it was a perfect excuse for me to crack open these new beauties from My Mind's Eye.

Here is the Trigger picture - so pretty, isn't it?

And here is my card - I wanted to capture some of the cheeriness of the photo.

I picked a few colors from the photo and just dove in. These doily images are so pretty, and to see them in these colors makes me smile.

The sentiment (a perfect fit!) is from the Sewing Box - Hugs set from Waltzingmouse. I wrapped some twine around the card and tied my little sentiment banner to it. This card makes me think of my grandma, and makes my heart happy :)

I hope you have a lovely day my dears, I will be thinking of you!

Anya
