Friends


Good Morning, hope everyone is great this morning, I'm fine! (Selma, you know about I'm fine LOL) inside joke there. Yesterday I got a beautiful card from Kym Weber, I loved how it was put together, so I had to do one. Our cards are altogether different except for the layout. For the base I used Gina K. Pure Luxury Ivory and then all the design paper is from Memory Box. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge and some ribbon Mary Anne had sent me. The flower is one I bought at AC Moore a few weeks back. I added some leaves to it using Heartfelt Creations stamp Set HCPC 2254 Leafy Swirls and I hand cut those out and placed them behind the flower. The bird image is also from Heartfelt Creations Rejoicing Bluebirds (1132G). Did you know you can also buy unmounted stamps from HFC and mount them your self? That's what I did with this one. They also have reasonable shipping rates so be sure and check them out some time. They have lots and lots of stamps!! I colored it in using Prisma Pencils. Tiny pearls were also added down the side. On the inside although I failed to take a picture I used 2 more Nestablities, Beaded Circles and Standard size circle for the sentiment. That's it for now. Bill is doing great other than having trouble sleeping at night. He slept better last night so think that will work out also. Thanks again for all your prayers. Okay, I'm out of here, have a great blessed day and I'll catch ya later!

Hi Olga! I am so glad I have a day to myself today and I am catching up on everything. I have been such a busy lady lately... I wanted to let you know that I have been thinking about you and your husband a lot over the past few weeks - mom has been keeping me up to speed. So glad Bill is finally back home with you. I will continue to keep you both in my prayers. Your card is so sweet! Love that bird and all your embellishments! Talk to you soon! dee
