Thinking of You

I needed to make a quick card this morning. And after several minutes of thinking, "I really have no idea what to make"...I went to my Flower Soft drawer. Aha! I pulled out some goodies that I had gotten a while ago for another project and quickly created this card. I think it took me six minutes, 10 minutes tops. There is no stamping and no coloring on this card. I matted the focal with card stock and adhered it to my base. The sentiment is mounted on foam tape and I added the little purple bow to the side.

Click on the image to see the detail.
Creating things quickly is not my forte. But it really was easy with the products I used. The focal is a Flower Soft Card Topper. I used the Watering Can from the Garden Corners set. All of the work was done for me. I just matted it with cardstock and added a bit of Heather Flower Soft. The sentiment is also from Flower Soft. This one is from the Baskets and Butterflies collection. All I did was cut it out, it is cardstock weight so it's sturdy enough to stand on its own, put some foam tape on it and stuck it down. So easy!
Supplies-cardstock:white base(GP). Petal, Sweet Leaf(CTMH). paper:Paper Garden level 2 paper packet(CTMH). focals: image,sentiment,Heather Flower Soft(Flower Soft). ribbon:Plum Pudding(PTI).

I wish each of you a wonderful weekend. Until next time...

Be Blessed!

Very, very pretty! The best thing is that it doesn't look easy thanks to some fun, classy products and your special way of putting them together. TFS.

What a beautiful card -- so soft and soothing. I've never seen those focal panels before; they're very pretty, though I think you make them look a lot easier to work with than I think I'd find them to be. Love all your finishing touches -- beautifully done.

Hope you and your girls are enjoying a nice dad's day with your man. ;)

I'm seriously going to have to use mine. I think about it from time to time, but always push the idea aside. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card Barb, I love it!!!
