Thinking of You.

Stamps: Eastern Blooms; Friend to Friend (ret.)
Paper: Chocolate Chip: Certainly Celery; Basic Grey Eva; White
Ink: Regal Rose; Close to Cocoa; Certainly Celery
Other: 5/8" Celery Grosgrain; slot punch
; ticket corner punch

I've always loved Cherry Blossom Trees...who doesn't?! After making another card (to be posted tomorrow) I had a scrap of the pinkish/floral paper left over and thought it would be nice to finally mount my Eastern Blooms set and make a card. I popped up some of the blooms to give it a little dimension.

Friend to Friend is probably my all time favorite sentiment set. I like the font and the size. But I just noticed that there is a period (.) at the end....seems kind of strange to me. I stamped it crooked, which drives me nuts when I do this! But I just left it...I tried to take the advice that I always give my customers when they make a boo-boo: If you want it perfect then buy a store bought card. But you know this will be sent to a non-stamper/card maker...someone who won't care that I stamped it crooked! heeheeheehee!

Have Terrific Thursday!

Kerry, this is so soft and pretty looking. I am sorry to hear that you aren't coming up for the wedding. Would have loved to meet you.

Let me know if you get something set up Buffalo way..........it's about 4 hours away from me!

The sentiment looks fine crooked! Very beautiful card! I wasn't sure I liked this set when I first got it at convention, but it's growing on me as I see beautiful cards made with it!

And I LOVE the cherry blossoms...i'm lucky to live in the DC metro area so I can go see them if I want to! :)

I like the sentiment crooked but I know how you feel. I'm a straight on kind of girl. think it's weird they put a . too.
