Fit for a Lady

 I love Thinking of You cards because I can use them for so many situations. This one was for one of the girls in my group of friends that had surgery a few months back. We had pitched in to by her some new pajamas because there is nothing that makes you feel better after surgery than new PJs and took her out for a good meal since she wouldn't be eating much in the following days (she has since fully recovered and we are glad to see her on her feet and back to work). I thought the image of the three women was very appropriate. This also allowed me to fancy it up a bit since the women were so proper and dressed to the nines.

The image of the women is from Graphic 45 which is an older line of paper. I layered it on SU Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. The Fancy Tag from Spellbinders was cut out of the Soft Suede as was the inside border (in the picture below it looks more green but it really isn't). The sentiment was stamped on a tag punched out with SU Modern Label punch. When I punched the right side of the card with the Martha Stewart Vintage Floral edge punch it didn't show up very well due to the cream inside of the card. That is why I decided to put the same border punch on the inside of the card. I typically don't decorate the insides except for a sentiment, but in this case it was needed. To balance out the card, I ran a brown satin ribbon along the left side of the card. Click on the images for an enlarged view. Now that I look back at the card, the only stamping I did was the sentiments. Oh my, what would we have done had they not come out with dies and punches.

We had some beautiful weather here yesterday. Not quite as nice as where some of us are (I shall not mention any names). It made it all the way up to 55 with some rain that helped to wash away the snow. This is not typical for our Michigan weather and it is getting me antsy for spring. It will all be over this week when we dip back into the 30's with some light snow. Every now and then I get a call from the south to remind me of the warm weather other people in the country are enjoying. All I have to do is close my eyes and I can feel myself sitting by the pool. A big Thank you to my friend that takes me on an imaginary vacation until I can get there for real. It sure helps me to get through this Michigan winter.

Everything is rather calm here. No news is good news right! I hope to get into my stamping room for some much needed stamping therapy. I might even tackle some type of altered project-we'll see.

~Have fun and enjoy!
