Thank you!

Hi, Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful blessed Easter!

I'm just popping in to share with you a commissioned card I made for a friend who wanted a thank you card.  She said her friend has a black lab and loves to hunt.  I'm not sure if I'll redo this card since I already redid it once, ha!  I think I got carried away with the sun rays, so I hid it some with the twine.  Isn't it something how some cards come together so easy and some don't...oh well.

I'm entering this card over at  AAA Cards.

For my card, I started with a white card base and used distress ink for the clouds and sun rays(mermaid lagoon, mustard seed, and squeezed lemonade).  The sun ray was made using a Tim Holtz stencil and a couple of punches and one stamp from Paper Sweeties.  The city scene stamp is from TE.  The tree dies are from Spellbinder's and the hills were made using a die from Lawn Fawn.  The deer are from IO and the black lab is from DRU.  And, the sentiment is from PTI.  I applied Wink of Stella on trees, deer, dog, and sun for interest.

Ok, friends...thank you so much for taking the time to drop by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Take care!



  1. What a fun scene you created, Maria! Love the cityscape.

  2. What a fun scene you created, Maria! Hope you had a lovely Easter, my friend.

  3. This is great Maria! What a fantastic scene!

  4. Oh what a sweet scene you created ... Love the little dog in there!

  5. I always start to overthink things when my project is a commission.... seriously makes you second guess every decision, doesn't it? But I think this is amazing! Your scene work is fantastic, and I love all the details. One of my favorite parts is those sun rays! :D

  6. This is a fab scene! Adding depth with the hills are turning this card into a 3-d scene with lovely elements. I love the deers and that black lab!
    Have a great week!

  7. Fantastic card! Love the black lab and deer in the hills!
