One of my dearest friends contacted me to let me know that her mom is in the hospital with a whole range of problems. It is a particularly trying situation for my friend because her mom lives in Chicago, and she lives here in Washington state. Her mom has already undergone one surgery and will have another once she has recovered enough to do the next surgery. My friend is hoping to go to Chicago for a quick visit in between those surgeries. I created this card with her in mind. I had the soft blue background that I embossed with a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder already made. I die cut the Memory Box Serene Bird & Branch from white cardstock and assembled the bird. I arranged everything per the FMS layout. I added the sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Thanks & Encouragement Word Mix stamp and die set and some tiny silver Spellbinders rhinestones.

two cards to share...
Hello! Popping in with a couple of cards that I had a chance to make and both feature new products! First up is a card for Freshly Made Sketches. I just checked and my card also works for the current JUGs challenge.
This next card is for Color Throwdown and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. I think I will be sending it to my niece who is away at school in Texas. She just went back after being home for the holidays, but we all miss her!
I used one of Simon Says Stamps new hot foil plate and die combos called Sketched Rose Wreath. I hot foiled the wreath and flowers with my Glimmer using silver foil. I then die cut everything and colored them with Copic markers in yellows, blues and greens. After that was done I die cut my panel of white cardstock and did a little bit of stenciling with a tiny heart stencil and Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink. I finished with the sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio that was foiled in black and some blue sequins. I was so fixated on the blue, green and yellow colors from the CTD combo that I forgot about the gray! I guess my silver foiling could fit that, but to bring in the gray I added my panel to a gray cardstock base! Problem solved!
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
