Thinking of You

Hello!  No baby news yet - will post as soon as we have something to report!
So, I'm pretty sure we woke up this morning in southern Florida, or Hawaii, instead of Missouri. We are quickly approaching 40 degrees, the birds are chirping, AND the sun peeked it's head out for a few minutes.  Loving it!


This card was made using a Hero Arts Flower stamp.  Again, this was created for a special order.  The embossing folder is a Stampin' Up! folder, the papers are Little Yellow Bicycle, and the coloring is Copics. Sentiment is Amuse Studios, and the twine is from my stash.

Of course, my mats were created with my Perfect Papercrafting Tools!  Check out my sidebar to see how you can get 5% off any order, and see videos showing how the tools work.

Hope you are all enjoying a day that is equally as pleasant as ours is today!  I'm off to do a bit of shopping, and then some walking.

Have a great Tuesday, and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Dogwoods truly make me happy! I was grinning from ear to ear when I saw these beauties. We have that same temp this afternoon, but we had a 3-4 inch snow first. Baby will show in her own good time, just saying a prayer that Melissa is holding up.

Patti, your card is perfect for the heralding of spring ... and it sounds like that was happening outside your door when you posted. I hope you got out there and got a walk in to soak up a little Vitamin D! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Patti, love this special order card, esp the way you wrapped your twine around the stems. Very clever indeed. The SU folder certainly gives a deep impression. Beautifully done. I'm jeleous about the weather, although it did warm up enough today that I didn't have to wear gloves after work.

Hey Stranger! Are you popping up out of your burrow like the groundhog? Dog stayed outside part of the morning. I put up the directions to the mobile phone pockets so people could make it for themselves -- that's the idea! LOL! I want to design another one, this time in black and white gingham. Mom liked her pocket! :)

Julia Aston said...

What a beautiful card Patti. Love that flower image and the pretty colors you used... the dry embossed image looks great in the background.
