Thinking Of You

Hello dear blog friends. I am more than ready for Winter to take a hike and allow Spring to come in. I'm getting really tired of the snow! Fortunately the rain took it's place over night and most of the snow has gone but I think more is forecast. I have been to my Zumba class this morning and oh boy did she work the upper arms!! Aching or what?

My Card
Click on image to enlarge picture

Today's card is for my friend whose mum is very ill in hospital and thought I would just drop her a card. It had to be a quick make so I settled for a CAS card. The card is my usual 6x6 and matted with yellow pearlescent cardstock.  I then used a Martha Stewart punch - I think it's Lace Doily Edge punch - on two pieces of white and one piece of yellow and lined them up. The stamp is from JustRite stamps Grand Sentiments - not quite straight! You see, you are not the only one Patricia!!! The  flowers are actually Medium Rose and Miniature Rose from Cheery Lynne, and by just using two flowers on each I think they resemble daisies.. I always admire the corner dies that Jacqui uses  (
so I bought the Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco Die C.  They are all so pretty that it was difficult to make a choice. I'm sure I'll be getting more at some point!! Lemon ribbon and pearls from my stash finished it off and it was ready for John to pop it through the letterbox as he passes shortly.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

Beautiful Christine, wish I could do zumba but unfortunately everything I loved to do I had to stop after a spinal op...many moons ago I did karate and got my black belt and ballroom and latin dancing..I was so fit and thanks to a drunk driver that was all taken away but at least I can walk again which is a blessing...think that snow is headed our way for tomorrow! and like you I'm sick of the stuff LOL hugs hun Sue J xxxxxxxxxx
