Sending You Warm Thoughts


Happy Sunday. We're having a very lazy morning which I absolutely love.  I went for a run this morning (well actually more of a walk) and then went down to my craft room for a bit.   I haven't been down there since last Sunday and I was missing it!  Do you ever feel that way?

This card is going to a friend of mine who completely surprised me this weekend.  She mentioned on Facebook that it would have been her dad's birthday had he still been living.  It would have been my dad's birthday too so I posted a comment to her.  Later in the day when I got home she had stopped by and dropped off flowers for me.  It absolutely made my weekend.  So kind of her to think of me.  I'll be sending her this card as a thank you.  I'm so grateful for her.

This card is also being entered for this week's ColourQ Challenge...I really thought I would make flowers for this color combo...but when I got started, this is what the end result was!

How precious... nice to remember those who have passed in a positive light. My craft room is also feeling a bit neglected, but the mess and the goodies will just have to wait.

How sweet of your friend! My dad passed away 20 years ago, I really miss him every day...

I'd love to receive such a beautiful card with the bright blue colour, Lynn. I know your friend will appreciate this lovely card.

Wishing you a great sunday evening!

So sweet of your friend! It's amazing how much such a simple gesture can make a person happy. Must remember that more often...

I thought I was going to go the flower route too with these colours. Glad you rebelled along with me! ;)

Beautiful card,Lynn, love the sentiment behind the card. Loss of a parent is difficult and carries with it memories. Thanks for sharing your card with us this week at the ColourQ!

Those are the best kind of friends to have:) So glad you are having a low-key weekend. I am so sorry you are missing your Dad today, you are in my prayers and thoughts. This card is so pretty and I know she will love it! I love the turquoise butterfly and the three strips of the turquoise behind it. Thanks so much for joining us at ColourQ this week, friend!
