Warm Thoughts.....FMS257






This will be the perfect card to send to any one of my friends here about mid-January when the temperatures are below freezing!  Warm thoughts are nice but in reality a cozy quilt and a fire in the fireplace help me through those winter days.  But then again a nice warm breakfast in bed's not bad either!




Oh that amazing Jen Mitchell designed a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! I watercolored a background before stamping images fromTotally Trees and a sentiment from Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches.

Hi Linda, what a fun card. I would like to know where to find this sentiment and are the waves and birds from a stamp set? Thank you

Awesome card! Love the palm trees and tropical feel, perfect take on that sketch! And a little juice box, food and TV in bed looks awesome to me! :)

Jen Timko said...

Love how you used these trees!! I debated this set and now I'm seeing that I should have gotten it. And that breakfast in bed?? I need to move to THAT B & B!!!

Oh, my gosh, what a perfect idea to send a card like this in the dead of winter! That sure is a cute little darling having breakfast in bead, too!

I love this beautiful scene, especially with that beautiful blue background. Very cute card, Linda! And if I had to live through your winters, I'd definitely be like Emma and never want to get out from under my warm covers. I don't think anyone would bring me food in bed though.

How did she rate breakfast in bed? So cute!! Love your card and who wouldn't want to get this card in the dead of winter? It would warm them right up!

A reply to Maggie......The birds are from an SU set called Let's Get Away. the sentiment is from a Paper Smooches set called Sentiment Sampler. Included in that set is also the word "hugs". I cut the s off of that word and turned it on its side to make the waves......

So pretty, you have created a lovely little scene.

Well look at you with the watercolors! Nice job. I can almost feel that tropical breeze on my face! Your beach scene is just the thing to make me happy on a cold winter night!
