Kind words...

Hi Friends,

It's a lovely spring day here in NW Ohio with the
temp of 73.  I'm here in my craft room making
more thank you cards.  But, as soon as I get done
posting here, I'm going to go out and enjoy this
lovely weather! 

I recently purchased a Verve stamp with the
most appropriate words.  You just wouldn't believe
how your kind words and actions can deeply affect
someone.  I love how Ellen DeGeneres always states
at the end of her show...."Be kind to one another".
In light of all the recent tragedy we've experienced
as a country a little kindess goes a long way!  My
thoughts and prayers go out to those in Boston,
Texas, and to whomever is hurting at this time.

I made two cards exactly as the one pictured on
the right.  I ran out of green paper and had to
go with a different idea for the card on the left.
I really like how the one on the left turned out.
What do you think?  Which one is your favorite?

Ok, that's it for now from my craft corner of
NW Ohio.  I hope all is well with you!  Thank
you so much for dropping by!  Take care and
God Bless!

  3. Both cards are beautiful, Maria! Love the sentiment.

  4. Beautiful cards! Hard to choose but as I am an avid gardener the one with the floral makes my heart sing! Enjoy the sunshine! We are having sun in Seattle this week which always makes me smile!

  5. Such pretty cards, and I love the font on that gorgeous sentiment. I just bought 2 of their stamps this weekend, they are really striking. THanks for visiting my blog. Barb

  8. They are both beautiful, Maria! I love the organdy tie and polka dots, and love the sweet floral paper, too. Gorgeous! Both!

  13. Both of these are beautiful, Marie! Love the barnboard and butterflies on the first and the yellow and green on the second! The sentiment is wonderful!

  14. Both cards are beautiful, Maria. But if I had to choose one, it would have to be the one with the pretty flowers and butterflies.
