Make a Wish...

Hello all,
Here with a quick post for The Shabby Tea Room week 169 - "Shabby Sunshine".   I have had very good intentions to play at the tea room more often this year but lately my days seem to be taken up with the joys of raising my son Tim which is as it should be.  Baseball season is almost over and we are done with Science Fair and now we just have two more weeks of school to get through before we can welcome summer.

Spring in my yard brings out the wishing flowers....or dandelions.  I love watching my son and the neighbor children make wishes on these flowers as they spring up all over our neighborhood!  As the grass grows in more fully, as the weather finally heats up here in Seattle, we see less of them but there are always a few for little hands to pull and make wishes on.  My card this week features the lovely dandelion set from MFT designed by Mona Pendelton.  This was a set that I just had to have and this is the first card that I have made with it using this weeks inspiration from the tea room:

I was inspired by the striped mug in the photo and the color scheme. I apologize for the quality of the photo it is 9pm here in Seattle and I need to re-take the photo in the daylight tomorrow.  I wanted to get it posted though just in case tomorrow gets away from me and I end up not posting it at all! LOL!  I have learned from experience to get it posted and then re-take!  

Thanks for taking a look at my card. :)

Cardstock: Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, White
 Dies:  MFT - Dandelion Stems and Toppers Dies, Taylored Expressions - border; Anne Griffin - embossing folder; Papertrey Ink Mat Stack dies.
Other:  floss, stickles, copics, button, dimensional adhesive, tombow glue
