Thoughts and Prayers


My downline Leigh challenged me to make a card today and although I didn't use what she wanted me to, I have still had my stress reliever for the day LOL!! What a contrasting colour combo to my last card but I love this one and this image is just so pretty. Those little flowers are so perfect when stamped. The only grouch I have about this set is the fact that it is double mounted - but I can live with that one! Such a simple card with not even any ribbon on it but I do like it.

The set I used is SU Thoughts and Prayers, the colours are Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive and Whisper White and I have Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers.

I have a few birthdays coming up to make cards for so thought I would get in and get a wee bit ahead.

So there you go Leigh!!! Off now to cook some mince for my little old dog - she is 22 and now thinks she is entitled to the best of everything. She turns up her nose at anything that is supposed to be made especially for doggies!

This is beautiful Jean. I love this set too - AND hate it being double mounted!! I think any lesser set would be put away!! I'm sure Leigh will love it too - though a little House Mouse sitting under the branch would be cute ;) - LOL

Hi Jean!

I only just received my Thoughts & Prayers set after it was on 'back order' and I can't wait to use it now, having seen your beautiful card. So clean & neat. I love it!

As for your doggie - what a grand old age - I agree with her that she deserves only the nest.

Take care.
Andrea

Very sweet card Jean! I have this set and haven't used it much at all. Now you've given me a great idea! I hear ya about the double mounted thing. We have a new set in our Spring Occasions that is that way too. I'm thinking that if enough of us e-mail SU! and tell them we don't like it, they may reconsider. They've done it before...I know they're a company that listens! Wouldn't hurt to try...
Have a great weekend, ~Kristin
