I started off making a Christmas card. Then I my sister called and said that our cousin's husband had been admitted to hospital and I thought - "Get Well" card. It suddenly dawned on me the the colours were far from masculine. He deserves another card. Then I thought of a friend whose step-dad passed away last Friday: perhaps a "With Sympathy" card. By then I was halfway through planting my row red flowers. Way too cheerful for the occasion. So, what now? Birthday? Thank You? Hello? Valentines? And that is how this card ended up as "Thinking of You"...that'll buy me time to decide.
|Background: pearlescent card stock embossed using Crafts-Too's "Daisy & Swirl" folder and on the panels: X-Cut Decorative Border Punch "Flower Doily"|
|I stamped the greeting using VersaColor "Silver", applied "Snowflake Twinkle" embossing powder and heat-set the lot. The middle panel is a row of little die-cut felt blossoms.|
|Some faux stitching in blue to frame the card and gold adhesive gemstones on each flower.|
Xiara's surgery went well. All visible lumps and bumps removed. She's home, resting and healing. Here are some pix:
