When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Lost in Space

I made this birthday card for a Yahoo group friend a while back, but sadly I now have had my first experience with the travails of snail mail gone bad. You see, it was sent to Australia from California but it looks like a curious dolphin snatched it (is that possible?!)along the way. Well, it never got there at any rate, so I turn to my trusty (lol) internet service to post it here. It's a shame, too, since it was pink. Pink is her chosen color for a very special auction/party she holds each October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I was really hoping this could do double duty. So sad, but that's the reality of life, huh? My sweet little Ballerina House Mouse seemed right for this card because she's so dainty and really looks pretty in pink! Who knows? Maybe, just maybe, there's always next year. These things do have a way of showing up out of the blue sometimes.



The  Bouquet is set behind a clear acetate window and adorned with many, lost count, tiny pearls.and came from a rub on sticker pack. The butterfly is an MS punch and the papers from my paper pack stash. Amanda's tutu is embellished with Stickles Diamond Dust just 'cuz she loves sparkly things like all little meeses do. Anyhow, Happy Birthday, Gillian, and I'll keep hoping.
