Friends of Speedy TV

Paper Piercing...holes, that is our challenge at  FOSTV. I missed the r and
 started piecing. Lesson is to read carefully lol!! So now you know what
 to do be sure to hop on over and wow us with your creation.
The winner will receive this Very fun stamp set called~

  I use one of the Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. set called Pucker UP. 
Using several different stamps from the set, the single lemon, the two lemons,
 the sentiment and the lemon blossom. After coloring all the images I cut

  them out. The sentiment was cut out with the Spellbinder Romantic
 Rectangle and the lemons with the Spellbinder Label #21
Both were pierced .
The papers are some misc with no name. They were stitched
 on and a little lace and some fun buttons added. 

Inside more stitching....The circle is the Spellbinder beaded circles
 with more piercing and  the pocket and border were punched
 with a  MS Zig Zag. The big lemon is temporarily stuck on
as it is  actually a refrigerator magnet to stick up the curd
 recipe. The recipe was added to the tag. A top cut from the
Spellbinder Label #21 shaded and faux stitched.
One of the lemons was cut from the image of two
colored, cut out and a ribbon added.

There is a story behind my card...A single mom lived next to me
 for years. Her girls used to love help feed the horses, goats and
 collect eggs. She would occasionally bring things over and I
 made lemon curd for her. She thought it was divine!  She has
since remarried and lives around the corner from me. She was
 recently diagnosed with breast cancer, had a mastectomy
 and is now started chemo. She has the most wonderful attitude,
not woe is me but rather hey that's just the way it
 is so just gotta do what ya gotta do!
 I wanted to make her smile Sooo thus this
 card. I am making her a jar of curd which I didnt have
 time to do yet and will give her the card to go with it.
  Thanks for stopping by today!
