Wonderful Friend, Aqua and Coral Wreath!

Happy Saturday Friends!  Starting off a windy sunny Saturday with a spring cold, watery eyes and a headache!  After resting all morning I am feeling a bit better and thought I would blog.  Ariel is off to a birthday party and Carter doesn't know it yet but were all taking naps over here this afternoon!

I am here to share a card for the Playdate Cafe's Challenge!  When I saw this week's colors I loved it, the photos are so inspirational.  And I must really love the colors because while laying in bed across in my closet I could see my pants in the teal and magenta right next to each other! It was meant to be!  I had to play along!



Here is my card:




I used WPlus9 Design Studios set Embroidered Flowers and made a CAS card featuring the playdate colors, I used tide pool, wet cement by Hero Arts and Lilac Posies by Memento!

On Thursday we had Ariel's piano recital and she did great!  Afterwards we went for ice cream with some of her friends (who also take piano) and there families for ice cream!  I got a great picture of Ariel at the piano, before she went up I told her when you sit down turn to me and smile so I sat in front got out the camera and said smile she turned and did and got a chuckle from the crowd!

Can you see her missing front tooth, she lost it just the day before!

I was approached to donate some items to the Children's Rehabilitation RBC Cruise down the Crescents silent auction.  I was happy to help so I donated a wreath, two baby hair clips and two pacifier clips.  I came up with a way to package the hair bands and clips:

I also added this wreath to etsy, aqua and coral are hot colors this season so I had to make a wreath in them!  You can find the wreath here, please do me a favor and open it up (more hits)  If you would like to pin it, please pin it off etsy or from here.

Thank you so much for popping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
