Dandelion Wish


Again I needed a get well card for my friend, so I did these cute mice on the dandelions. You can't see on this picture, but I used sparkly stickles on the fluffy dandelion. I found the cute grey dandelion paper at Michaels about 6 months ago on clearance. It goes with the stamp so well. Sometimes it is fun to dig into your stash and discover something so cute.
I am currently working on a scrapbook of my mother's high school and young adult years. This summer when I was visiting, she came out of her room with this oversized leather looking scrapbook. Oh was I ever surprised. I never knew she had this. I have been scrapbooking for14yrs now, and not once did she ever mention this book. The pages are crumbling as I try to carefully remove pictures and memorabilia. I have a few more pages to complete and then I will get back to making cards and posting. 
Thanks for looking and have a great day.



  1. Adorable Joan. Great idea to add the stickles to the dandelions.

    Have fun creating your scrapbook.

  2. What a darling image and how wonderful to have paper to match!!!! The scrapbook you are making for your Mother sounds awesome...I hope you will share some of the pages with us!!!

  3. Nice card Joan. Reading your comments might get me to finish the kids scrapbooks - finally!! Sounds like your scrapbooking background comes to you naturally through your mom :)

  4. What an adorable card! I love how you matched your DP to your image--it's perfect. The stickles on the dandelion fluff are a great touch :)
