Thinking of You

Hello Dear Friends! I hope you are all doing well! Have you found springtime yet?! We're working on it...it's supposed to be beautiful tomorrow...here's to hoping!! So, I love this little Forrest Friends stamp set!(Avaliable from the occasions mini starting April 1st!) I think they are really cute little images! My kids also really love it...and are excited to get to make cards with it.

Speaking of kids...my sweet little Ruby just deleted my post...I was all finished and somehow before I could select publish, she had selected the whole post and then deleted it...isn't that lovely!? I don't know how she did it so fast...5 seconds MAX!

So, to the card I wanted to share today. I had some scraps on my desk and they were sitting just "so" and this card was the result! I love So Saffron--one of the best neutral colors around in my opinon! So, my card base is So Saffron. I added as strip of Chocolate Chip dsp, and then a strip of Pink Passion c/s. Before adding the Pink Passion, I ran it through my Big Shot with my polka-dot background texture plate...SO fun! (I know it's hard to see in the photo...I'll try to get better at that!)

I stamped my little deer with Chocoalte Chip ink and then ran it through my Big Shot with my oval nestabilites. I ran a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock through my Big Shot with my scallop oval nestabilites for a perfect frame for my deer. I attached the deer to my card with some dimensionals, for a bit of a boost.

I stamped my sentiment, which is from the Trendy Trees stamp set, in Chocolate Chip ink onto some So Saffron paper. My Word Window Punch went to work giving me a lovely addition to my card! The last bit of work for me was to tie everything together with some delicious 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain!

Tomorrow the packers come and start packing everything that is left in our house...so today I'm packing up our suitcases and getting ready to check into the hotel for a few days! We're really moving!! I'll hopefully be able to stop by tomorrow....Thanks so much for stopping by!! I appreciate it so much!! Have a wonderful day!

Hi Jen...I know you are really busy with the move (good luck), but if you have a minute, would you tell me what shape/sizes of nestablities you have. I really like your cards and the ones you use seem to coordinate well sizewise with alot of the SU punches and stamps. I wish we sold them but I just can't wait anymore I am so envious of all the great things everyone else is doing with them!

Jen, this is so sweet! I've been resisting ordering from the mini for a bit(saving for our Florida trip) but this is a set on my wish list...it's adorable!

Good luck with the move!

This is darling!! I think I was channeling you or something...I just posted a card that uses a turquoise scallop strip like yours from yesterday AND it uses the "thinking of you" stamped and punched with the Word Window Punch like this card! *insert Twilight music here* lol!
