Flowers For You - FMS9


My DT friend Tui Nathan designed the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Tui is from Australia and this summery card using Calypso Coral, Berry Blossoms DSP and flowers from Simply Soft is made with thoughts of Tui as she heads into summer.  We in the Northeast are well aware of what is coming our way after two October snowstorms - and it is not summer!  I also love exchanging e-mails with Tui - she says good morning and when I answer back I end with good night.  She greets the day 13 hours before I do! Reminds me of the Beatles song........I don't know why you say good-bye......I say hello.......

This is so pretty and I love the spring colors! Perfect to brighten anyone's day (especially those who are facing the snow). I love that flower!

Linda, this is a lovely card! Just what we need after the last weekend's storm, too! Thanks for brightening our day!

Gorgeous card. I love that DSP paired with the stamp. I love the way you used the linen thread on the ribbon, too. Your Goodbye/Hello made me laugh. I have to parrots, and when one says Hello or Goodbye, the other always says the opposite, so that Beatles song is constantly in my head! :)

Rita said...

So pretty, Linda! I love your ribbon treatment on this one!

Samantha said...

Kim said...

Ahhhh, beautiful spring colors (instead of all the white I see out my window)! Love the dimension you added to the flower too. Very pretty card! Hope you are well! Missing my pals!

This is gorgeous! I love the spring colors and the way you popped up those flowers. Now,I want to know, is it possible to skip winter entirely and go to spring?

Jen said...

Oh you are super sweet my friend ...
I always have a little giggle when I greet you with a good morning and I receive a goodnight in response ... so funny!
Fabulous card as always Linda, this is such a lovely stamp set and I am yet to do justice to it ...your flowers look great in 3d and that patterned paper is so pretty and definitely a day brightener!

Your card is so bright and happy, just what I needed to see on this cloudy Monday :) I love that paper! It's so funny to email back and forth with online friends, really makes you realize there is more out there than just our tiny little world/community. Good for us, right :)
