Balm of Friendship

Happy Tuesday, friends! It is a sunny, but cold, day here in the 'Burgh. I miss the warm!

Today I'm playing along with this week's Play Date Cafe challenge. I need to start participating in more challenges .. it helps to keep me motivated. The PDC challenge for this week was a beautiful mix of soft and shabby.

I particularly loved the snippets of text in these pictures, and it reminded me of Waltzingmouse's Rescue Remedies set.

Pretty pinks and creams on this one. The vintage product advertisements are from a shopping bag that I saved (it was an inspired moment) - it has been handy! The card base was stamped with Text It.

Glad I could sneak in to see you today, I will see you again tomorrow! Have a great day!
