Thinking of You

My mother-in-law lives in a retirement home and she recently asked me to make some pretty Thinking of You cards to send to people because she couldn't find any decent ones in the "stores".  I have been making her birthday, Christmas & Mother's Day cards the last few years, so I guess she thought I could help out.  Of course I freaked at first ....when someone asks you to make a specific card for them...kind of makes you feel "under the gun" so to speak.  At the same time I thought it would be a fun challenge & of course I would help her...she's priceless...the most loving mother-in-law anyone could dream for!!  Anyway...I will post some cards I made for her over the next couple of weeks. This is one of the first ones I came up with.  I love this Stampendous stamp called "Daisy Thanks"...looked exactly like the Black Eyed Susan's growing in my garden every year & they just spoke to me as a great versatile stamp!  I colored them with my Promarkers and framed them out with Spellbinders A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader die.  I proceeded to thread some dark brown woven ribbon through the slots in the die & struggled QUITE A WHILE till I managed to tie a bow in the center!!  Then I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from a Tim Holtz set at the bottom in dark brown ink.  I think she'll love it!  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!!
