Our Monday FOSTV Challenge is to use metal...and the challenge was what metal 
and how to use it! I decided to make a flower using metal screening and brad 
center.My sweet friend Martha sends me care packages every few months
 and this time it was filled with a whole stack of embossed papers, some 
folders, jewels, stamps, a copic marker and a few other goodies. This is one 
of the pretty embossed folders I added some yellow and orange chalk to.
 The creme is a cut with a Spellbinder as is the brown border.
 The teacup from the Relax A Bit set was stamped on some dotted dp and then 
colored and cut out. All the edges were distressed.
The sentiment is  also from the Relax A Bit set.
All the Stamp Sets and other stamping goodies are
available at MFP a Heinrich Co. Store. Lots of
 possibilities with the metal so stop by and join the fun!

This is off the subject but after such a wonderful weekend Just had to share this pic of my mom she turned 85 on Sat and my little sis, niece and my oldest daughter were able to come home for it . My middle sis and her daughter live here. We took mom up river to shop and then surprised her with dinner at the Samurai Steak House where they cook at the table. She tried all kinds of sushi,
 was treated like a queen thru out the meal  including
 a birthday cheesecake and had so much fun! 

We all spent the entire weekend together just being girls, laughing till
 our stomachs hurt, ate too much, slept very little but what a treat it was to all be together! 
The only thing that could have made it better was for my youngest daughter 
 to have been able to come, but not so easy to come all the way 
from Virginia for a weekend!
