So Many Thanks

EDITED:  I apologize for not getting around to anyone's blog for the last few days.  My husband is back in the hospital with some serious complications and just don't know when I'll be back on here.  I haven't forgotten anyone.....just don't have access to a computer right now....don't have an iphone, ipad, or even an ipod!  Yikes!  LOL!   Hopefully I'll be back on Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

I figure you're still trying to get over the Funny Friday that appeared on Wednesday this week, so I won't bore you with another one today.

I created these two cards using the sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping.....easy sketch and it makes up nice CAS cards in a hurry. Two very lovely ladies sent me some goodies in the mail recently and this was the perfect opportunity to use a few of them.

My first card is pretty in pink!  Monica, over at Hand Stamped with Love sent me some of the homemade flowers she makes (which are gorgeous).  They got a little bit squashed in the mail since they came from Indonesia, but I was able to fluff them up a bit - and added some pearls to the centers.  She also sent this handmade pink paper!  Awesome looking - it just shimmers.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

On my second card I used some tiny little bows that Sharon from Sharon's Kardz Korner sent - all the way from South Africa.  Aren't they just precious!  So cute and remind me of little bow ties.  This is a SU sentiment I used and then added a row of rhinestones.

Thanks so much (again) to both fantastic ladies!

Thanks for stopping by...........have a great weekend.

So sorry to hear that your husband is having difficulties. I will add you both to my prayers this evening. I admire that you found time and energy to create! Good for you.
I'm finding it difficult to muster my muse these days but wanted to stop by my favs for a quick note - and you so qualify as one of my favs.

Monica said...

Hi Lynn,

What brilliant cards you have made. LOVE the CAS look. And the sentiments are so sweet as well.
Glad that you could fluff up the flowers.

The bows are so cute. Lovely colours as well.

Hope DH recovers soon, wonder what happened... he was doing well, wasn't he? I will keep him in my prayers tonight and every night.
