Two Cards

We have a friend whose Mother passed away this week and I wanted to make her a card to let her know
we have been thinking about their family.  During the day that I spent at the hospital while my sister-in-law had open heart surgery I colored this JustRite image from the Beautiful Blossom's collection.  I thought it made a beautiful card.

   Get Well Soon

This next card is made for my Sister-In-Law who just had open heart surgery.  I talked with her today, she is home and is getting along pretty well.  It was a tough surgery and she had several rough days, but she said today that each day is getting better.  She loves vintage things, so I thought this card would be very suitable for her.

I love the new Flower Soft Toppers.  What a great way to make a quick card.  They come in a package of 6 with two designs per pack.  You can see them all here.   I used the Labels 8 to cut out the girl which gave the card more interest.

I also used one of the Webster Paper Pages from the Post Card/Cherry pack and cut out the edge, curled it  and added it to the DT.  You can click on the image to enlarge it to see it better.

Green grass is just what many of us northerners are waiting to see.  Flower Soft's addition of the new Ultra Fine Sage is a perfect grass color and because it is so fine it looks so natural.  It is amazing what this small addition of texture does for a card.

The new Ultra Fine Flower Soft in the Raspberry Fizz is a  perfect match to add a touch of texture to the little girl's bow.  This new Ultra Fine Flower Soft is wonderful because it is so fine that it works perfect on any image.  You can see all the new colors here.
