Thinking Of You

Good morning, my friends! I'm kicking off my first Monday of the month with a sunny card. As I write this post its pitch dark outside and the weather man is eagerly pronouncing that the day will be bitterly cold and the sky miserably unforgiving. Oh well, as the song goes.... it's another day in paradise!

I made this card last Friday for a dear friend, a very special lady, who is having a hard time with her health. With the weather being the way it is all over the country (quite unusual for the southern part where she lives), I thought I'd send her some sunshine... and to tell her that we are thinking of her. And praying for her.


The background is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. I made a frame for the
greeting with SB's Oval and Lacey Oval dies. The blooms are from Clearly
Besotted's Fancy Florals set, stamped with Versacolor Marigold, Memento
Canatloupe and Versacolor Tropical Green.

The greeting is from Clearly Besotted's Many Messages, stamped with
Versacolor Black Onyx. For embellishments, I used a button and some bling. 

A little peek inside.


I'm also playing along with these challenges. Join me?

    Beautiful beautiful card!! I love yellow! I have a light complexion so I rarely ever wear yellow but I like to decorate it and use it in my cards!! : ) You are inspiring me to break out the sunny spring papers.

    Our winter has been dreadful with seriously cold temperatures and mounds and MOUNDS of snow!! But Prasie God! we have a safe shelter to wait it out : )

    Warm wishes,
    Patti
