Heartfelt Card

Just a quick post as we are literally running out the door heading for the cottage.
Here is another card I made during my girlfriends get away.
Isn't it funny how you have an idea for a card and it looks nothing like you had planned :)
Even though, I do still like this card.
I didn't bring one piece of ribbon with me, so I had to improvise with pattern paper.
 Isn't she so cute.
She is better at growing plants then I am. I have a black thumb, every plant dies on me....I guess I should probably water them more often.
 The blue paper has some glitter on the bunches of flowers. You can't really tell in these photos though.
Well my cold is still going strong.
I was up most of the night coughing my lungs out. I was looking all over for cough medicine, but I can't take any because of my heart...grrrrrr.
So I sucked on a Halls cough candy.

I picked up our Triptik for Montana.
And picked up Subs for supper. I sure didn't feel like cooking, never mind cleaning up after.
Hubby told me that when we go to camp I am to read and relax.
And he will put Vick's Vapour Rub on my chest for me....he's not fooling anyone, lol.

Hope your weekend is a relaxing one



  1. I like the brown and blue combo. I actually prefer cardstock strips to ribbon. Ribbon can be so fussy!

  2. Another real cute creation. Loving it!!!!! Hope your cold gets better really soon.
    Happy crafting

  3. Talk about cute!!! oh my i love this image! way to cute and of cours girlfriend you coloring is outstanding!

    have fun at the cottage!

  4. omg I love love love that card.. So sweet. Thanks for sharing. hugs

  5. That card is A-dorable. Your coloring keeps getting better and better. Regarding the Vicks, hey, he probably figures only the top half of you is sick. You don't close down the amusement park just because one ride is on the fritz. Not my sick humor this time. It's Ron White's. Hope it made you laugh...cough cough and hack hack. REST!

  6. Very cute card - I love the paper combination you used. Have a great weekend!

  7. I LOVE that image! She is so adorable!!!! I like how you improvised with the paper instead of ribbon too, adorable!

    As for Wayne and the Vick's, I swear it must be a man thing. Mike is always offering to rub Vick's on my chest...even when I'm not sick. Hope you get to relax and feel better!

  8. Awww, I hope you feel better soon! Your card is adorable - the way you colored the flower pot is very nicely done!

  9. I love the card & think it looks wonderful with the paper! You did great improvising!

    That really stinks that you have a nasty cold right now! My hubby would be trying to persuade me to let him put Vicks on my chest too. I'm sure he'd tell me it clears up "something." ;^)

  10. I love the card. Not every card needs to have ribbon on it. I have found after many spools wasted that I don't really like ribbon that much LOL.

  11. lol sound like my bf as well... hope you feel better soon. Love your card! love how you use paper as a ribbon it so pretty..

  12. Very, very cute card.
    I don' have a green thumb either.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
