Get well soon!

Hi, there!

Just popping in quick to share with you a couple cards I made recently.  My first card is one I made for my friend's husband who just had rotator cuff surgery.  They both love dogs and I recently found this awesome stamp set from Art Impressions while out shopping at Hobby Lobby.  I colored the fun image with copics.  I snickered at the fun sentiments!  I'm sure Ted will, too!  The dies are from MFT.  Dots and black twine to finish the card.

Next up. is an anniversary card for my friend, Pat and her husband, Darrell.  I made this card to help them celebrate their 50th anniversary!  And, here is the card...

The 50th die is from Memory Box.  The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy and the banner die is from Paper Sweeties.  Gold ribbon from PTI and pearls to finish the anniversary card.  Last summer they took a trip to Hawaii to celebrate!  They had a great fun and romantic!

This weekend my friend, Nancy, and I are going to a crop.  I'll be working on Easter cards.  Lots of chicks, lamb, and flowers for these cards.  The images are from Sunny Studio and the die is from MFT.  Here's a sneak peek...

I'm hoping by making these cards that it will hurry spring along.  We had very windy days here for the past couple days, which blew in colder weather again.  I'm so looking forward to spring!  Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a wonderful week!



  1. Oh goodness, this post is filled with all things happy! Your cards are so beautiful, Maria! I had to chuckle at the feeling ruff card. It's so perfect for the recipient and completely adorable! (I hope he's healing up nicely!) The anniversary card is so elegant, yet also whimsical... it's beautiful! And your sneak peek makes my heart dance. I cannot wait to see the finished product. Thank you for the abundant inspiration, my friend. Happy Monday. :)

    Hugs and blessings,

  3. A very thoughtful twofer, Maria! Your friend will be cheered immensely by the sad dog in the cone card! (I need to get that stamp out and use it again; I just love it!)
