Winter Village stamp set with my Art Impressions Foliage stamp set to create this lovely scene. The inks used are also Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Simply Chartreuse, Soft Granite, Sweet Blush and Lovely Lady inks.
I printed the text out at FedEx again with their white, matte cardstock. This makes it easy to handle and stamp over. I die cut the image out with my WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die to create that fabulous stitched frame. All in all, I think it pleased her to send out this card to her friends and family. Moving at 90 (my grandfather is 92) is a daunting task and making these for her to show off was a pleasure.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Through the Window since my house has quite a few windows!
Word Art Wednesday's challenge - Week 274/275 Anything Goes
Hope your week starts off with a bang!

Since I've been a bit busy, I thought I'd throw together this cute little thank you card. The bear with his sentiment was given as a thank you in my Ellen Hudson order and I just couldn't throw him out. I cut away the signature and added him to this patterned paper and ribbon from the stash - very simple but great use of recycling. Hope your week ends spectacularly.
I get the lovely opportunity to share this card made by Brandy today. She needed to wish a friend a happy new home and this card is her work of art. So full of fun details to catch your eye. Brandy used the Art Impressions Cottage and Die set along with her Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on Bristol paper to create the image. That's her handwriting in the sentiment folks...Such a wonderful way to wish someone a brand new start in their home, don't you think?
I'm entering this card in the following challenges, you should stop by and check it out and maybe even join the fun!
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Through the Window since the house's window features so prominently!

I switched up the design creating a frame for the flowers and leaving the background brighter. It's hard to think brighter when loss is so near, but I truly wanted to give the recipient something to hold in their hands which expresses my love. I'm praying this worked...
