A Heart Full of Thanks! FMS19






Jen Mitchell drew up this sweet sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  She loves square cards and so do I.  And I also love this new Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! called Attic Boutique.  It has such beautiful designs and colors!  But I must take exception to the name..........Attic Boutique?  Sounds like an oxymoron to me - especially when I think about my attic.  Not much of a Boutique atmosphere on the third floor of my old colonial.............definitely more of a BOO-tique!

What a ha[[y card, Linda! I love the pretty yellow and the double scallop trim. I really like square cards, too. I need to make them more often then I do. Have a great day! :)

Hi LC,
Your attic sounds fun! I'll bet there are all sorts of goodies up there! Lovely card, great colours. I think that paper is very pretty!
Hugs,

Well, at least you have an attic!!! It would be basement boutique in my house, that that would definitely be an oxymoron! I did not get that DP so whenever I see something made with it, I am always surprised! This just looks so FRESH and FUN and gee, I have those little clear buttons somewhere----I haven't used them in forever! SWEET!

What beautiful papers. Love the way you've made your scalloped border. x

Your attic and mine sound like soul mates! Good thing we can still make a cheery card, eh? I love this one, Linda!

Jen said...

You're definitely describing my attic - right down to the old colonial! That's a great looking vintage paper. I don't know how I missed it in the catalog! And I love the big bold statement stamped on top of the heart!

Notes by Nina said...

Very pretty card, I love the cheerful paper you used.

Mary Fish said...

Gorgeous color! I love the way you stamped the images in layers.

Hugs, M

Gorgeous Linda ...We don't have that paper, so whenever I see something new ... I drool! Really love that sentiment too, we don't have that either!

Vicky Hayes said...

This is really dynamic Linda with these gorgeous colours and prints! I love the idea of a pretty attic with gorgeous vintage treasures in it but it's certainly not mine either!

Margaret Moody said...

This is beautiful, Linda C.! Wonderful job of combining the patterned paper from that group! Love the oversized sentiment too!

Linda love this card. The colors look so cool. The mixed patterns and colors are fab! Love the oxymoron thing.. too funny.
I really want this DSP but I have not even ordered yet! Now I have to travel for work, so another week will lost before I get my order ready. Hugs.

Jen Timko said...

Now Linda, I had convinced myself that I didn't need this paper! This is gorgeous! Love your take on the layout. And it is obvious that Linda's are seriously amazing...any more Jen's might require a challenge name change. ;-) Thanks for a beautiful inspirational break from the books!

All those patterns look so pretty together. I don't know how you do it. Amazing!

Debbie Henderson said...

Love the way you over-stamped the sentiment over the heart image and love all the rounded layers! Nothing up in my attic other then that good ole' insulation!

Linda Fisher said...

Beautiful card Linda! I especially love the rounded elements and the color combo! This is definately a winner!!!

Ann Schach said...

Oh my gosh! A touch of vintage! I LOVE it!

Colleen Dietrich said...

I have a boo-tique, too! LOL The papers are so pretty together, and I love the big scalloped edges together at the top.
