First card in a long time!

As I recover from my long weekend I realize how much I miss just making a simple card for someone. The inspiration for this card is from all the people who helped me throughout the weekend deal with my being sick and a household of sickos. From the friend who picked up my 5 year old to take him to Kindergarten on Friday, to the friend who went to the grocery store yesterday morning to bring us jello, Sprite, Gingerale, bananas, & lots of juice, to the friend who stopped by last night with a plate of my favorite goodies. I appreciate everyone in my life and am very thankful for the hand of the Lord in my life.

This card was made using all Stampin' Up! products. The designer paper is Ginger Blossom, the cardstock is Whisper White & Always Artichoke, the ink is Basic Brown. I used artichoke mini brads and a blender pen with a Guava ink pad to color the flowers in the wheel barrow. The stamp set is an old Sellabration set called Love Ya Bunches.


  1. What a pretty card. It seems I can always find a need to use a Thank You card. I'm glad to have so many. (They seem to be some of my favorites to make.)

  2. Very cute! I'm loving the color combo. Great job. I sure hope you guys are feeling better today.

  3. cute card! I always liked that wheelbarrow...such a sweet stamp!

  4. Gorgeous card! I hope you're feeling better - and the rest of the crew too. Our littlest one, age 8, has been down with a fever for 9 days now and missed over a week of school. We went back to the doctor today and we have him started on an antibiotic. This has been a horrible season for sickness. Take care!!!

  5. Very pretty card. It's a simple layout but I have never tried it before. I like the little strip of patterned paper at the bottom.

  6. Ohh, I love the simplicity of your cards.

    I'm an one layer gal though - also because I'm still learning how to appy glue properly but more importantly I love using stencils to de/emboss.




Thanks for leaving me a comment! I love to hear from you!!
