Keep Smiling

Hi there!

Just a really quick post this morning before I head to work. 

Speaking of work, it's that crazy, frazzled, nutso time of year in the floral department. Gearing up for Valentine's Day is no easy task. Next week will be really busy, cutting, pricing and displaying all those flowers and plants. I dread it every year but somehow we get through it and the actual day itself is a fun one to work!

I've got a card to share today, using the Thinking of You clear set from Simon Says Stamp. I love the sweet flowers in this set!



I stamped the flowers in various ink colors, then used the end of an eraser on a pencil to add the larger coordinating dots. Other dots were added with the tip of a Copic marker.

This card will be going to a dear friend and co-worker who shattered her leg and broke her shoulder after falling from a ladder! She has a long recovery ahead of her and I want her to know I'm thinking about her -  I miss her so much!

Okay, I'm outta here - thanks for the visit! ♥

Those dots add so much!! This is a lovely "thinking of you" card. It makes me hurt just to think of your friend's injuries. Just think, after Valentine's day come St. Patty's day and then Easter! You can do it!
