One of my mum's friends, Maureen, placed a card order with me yesterday.  Happy day!  So...I spent a couple of hours working on cards for her.  She asked for a set of thinking of you, birthday and sympathy cards...and I got to pick what to make.  Happiness!  My first card is a thinking of you card for the current Play Date Cafe challenge.  I loved the colors this week.  Hope your week gets off to a great start.  The weather was very nice yesterday...perfect to start my day with a run (yikes...only about nine weeks until I run my second half marathon) and lots of play time with the boys outside. The bikes and rollerblades were out and we took a few short walks.  Perfect way to spend a Sunday!

Ingredients:  SU Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and Peach Parfait; Stamps:  Hero Arts and PTI; Twine:  PTI Ink

  5. How exciting to have a commission! And what a great card, Lynn! The colors are fantastic and you used them perfectly. We've had some nice warm days, too. (But it would be much more enjoyable if I were allergy-free!) Good luck with the half-marathon training!

  7. This is beautiful, your mum's friend will love it. I am also trying this challenge this week and failing terribly at the moment trying to use these colours. But you have done a brilliant job!
