Her Royal Highness - Sistah Pat!!

Hello everyone - this is a quick post today with one very late card in honour of my very dear friend and Sistah Pat Smethers.  Pat has been chosen to be "Queen for a Day' on SCS, this is a fun challenge that has been started by the lovely Anne Ryan and it is honouring stampers who encourage with their comments and are generally lovely - we know that is almost every stamper on SCS, but they can only be showcased one at a time! LOL!

I love Pat's cards and am blessed to have a number of them in my home, they are gorgeous and so hard to case - I finally chose this one... I love the elegance of  Pat's card and all that gorgeous white embossing - I am not sure what happens when I do it but - I don't like it - the white calls me and calls me until I have to obey it's call of 'fill me...'

I did stay true to your card Pat, although I used a Layers of Color art stamp set - Merci Bouquet  I coloured with SU Chalks and then painted on some Pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, on the leaves - spraying would have been too much - I do love the Glimmer Mists and need to use them more!  These flowers are divine and so easy to colour - they certainly make a quick card is that is what you are wanting!

The only thing I changed was the fact that I added the Vintage Corners - I could not help myself, I was tempted to photograph it and then add them, but I thought no - I will do the right thing and show you the proper card!

Pat, what a fitting choice you are for Queen for a Day - you are such a darling to us all. Your big heart just brings you alongside the new ones in the galleries and you make us all feel so loved! I love your 'Ai Yi Yi's' and your 'Oh Sistah's' you are a loving heart and such a shining light with your faith - you Pat, are one of those people who don't just 'talk the talk' but you 'walk the walk!' When I grow up I want to be Pat Smethers, stamper, sister, Twisted Sister and friend!!

Pat, if we don't meet in this lifetime, we certainly will in the next - now...remember I will be the one with the Cuttlebug - you bring the folders and the Dies!! LOL! I hope I am sitting at the same table as you at the 'Banquet!' Love you my friend and sistah, I am so blessed that you linked arms with me! LYMIMIMIMIMI IRL!!! {{{hugs}}}
