Hello! Thanks for stopping by today, my friends!
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and Monday. I took the weekend off from stamping. LOL...Friday night I went to crop with some friends at a LSS, but um, I got nothing done. literally: nothing! I did get out of the house though and spend some time with a couple of good GF's! So that was nice. Sunday we went to Pat's brother's house and didn't get home until late. I am also still frantically finishing up some samples for CHA that should have mailed like yesterday! I think that I will be able to show you them next month some time. After I worked on some of those, I stayed up late (like that's unusual!) last night to make a card that I could share on my blog today. My sister-in-law went in for a surgery yesterday so I thought I would make this card for her.
When I ordered these High Hopes Stamps back in February, I never got a chance to use this sweet bunny holding tulips. (I did make one with a bunny holding the egg). I felt last night that I needed a break from what I was doing for CHA and a break from my usual Tildas/Edwins and Hannas/Rileys. Don't get me wrong...I am not sick of those stamps...but I wanted something different. Anyhooooooo, I know that tulips have been long gone for awhile, but I this image is so cute that I don't care! What do you think? Does this card look too "out of season"?

Speaking of seasons, I would like to share that our unending rain seems to have passed. Thanks for all your good weather thoughts!!!! We still have rain, but not all day, every day like June. It has not gotten really hot though, either. Not that I am complaining about that! I am not a huge fan of the heat. It has been about 77º-82º. The best part is that it has not been humid. ICK...humidity!! The typical summer humidity is not around and I am a HAPPY girl! LOL! It would be nice if some days were a tad bit warmer for the kids to enjoy some water fun...but I am certainly happy! And Pat is happy with the electric bill savings from not running the A/C! LOL!

Well, Declan woke up with some kind of rash this AM...so we are off to the DR.

Thanks again for stopping by today! I always appreciate all your kind comments!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

I don't think that it's "out of season" - as crafters, we're usually one or two seasons ahead of the rest of the world anyway. It's nice to break out of your norm & do something a little different.

I really love the colors & (is that flower soft?!?) the grass. The faces on HH stamps remind me of tole painting artist, Annie Lang, & I love her stuff!

I think it's precious!

Danni said...

Such a pretty card! Love how you used it for a get well. Nice and cheery...
I'll send you some of my heat...suppose to be 105 today, ugh! LOL!

So CUTE, Kerry! Love that image and your coloring is FANTASTIC!! I think the Bunny with tulips makes a wonderful get well card! Not out of season at all as far as I'm concerned! Hope all is well with Declan.

Hi Kerry,
This card is adorable (as usual). I completely understand about the need to break away from our normal stamp routine and to go another direction. I have always felt that by doing this, it prevents our loss of mojo. So, I say mix it up, it's good for you, and good for your readers and fans as well.
To answer your "out of season" question....Is a Get Well/Feel Better card ever out of season? It is truly not the stamped image that counts, it is the fact that you are thinking about your SIL, and you cared enough to use your time and skills to create something just for her. Just my $.02 worth. Linda S. in NE

Super cute Kerry! I think you can buy tulips in bloom so I think you are okay. They must be in season somewhere!
Perfect coloring as usual!

Jekka said...

Happy Tuesday to you!!! I don't think this card is out of season at all--it's a perfect image for your occasion. It would also work for a "Just Hopping By To Say Hello" card :>)

Ila said...
