I'm on a roll!
Today I have a card for Margaret.
It's a long, overdue thank you card for being a marvelous friend and a wonderful hostess.
It took me awhile to make my way back into my art room.  I have now made several cards, so hopefully, with the physical therapy I am now receiving, I will feel like playing with paper more frequently!
This card uses the Upsy Daisy stamp set from Stampin Up.  I used the same technique as my card a couple of days ago for my sister-in-law, using Tim HOltz distress inks.  If you ever need a card quickly, this is the way to go.  Ink the background, use silhouette stamps (no coloring), stamp a sentiment and mount.  You're done! 
I am entering the following challenges:
Crafty Boots - Flowers
Stamp and Create - anything goes
Hope Margaret gets to her physical mailbox before she gets to her virtual one!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Too late--already been to the mailbox but no card! But now I have anticipation ahead...I will hang this at work to bring some color to my days and remind me of the love from afar. :) Your recent posts have inspired me to get my bootie down to the art room this weekend. Thank you for that!

  2. Gorgeous thank you card Kathy, I love the background you have created, it looks amazing. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
