Sending Love to Gina & her mom


Today is Gina K's birthday!  Here is the card I mailed to her this week I made using the new set Sweetest Blessings and Sweet as Sugar Digital Paper. I used Lauren's sketch from several weeks ago mytimess20 which was a lot of fun!  I love her sketches, they are so not something I would dream of putting together and I always love her cards!  On my background piece of cupcake paper, I covered all the cupcakes with stardust stickles (except for a portion of the one in the upper right corner - oops!) didn't realize until I was placing the card in the envelope!  doh 

This next card is going to be mailed to Gina's mom Ruth.  Gina's dad died last week and Melanie asked Gina if there was anything she could do for her and she said mailing a card to her mom would be so nice.  If you would like to do that as well, here is info from Melanie's blog.  Ruth was married to her sweetheart for 55 years!  Can you imagine?  I just want to let her know she's in my thoughts & prayers so I'm sure this will brighten her day!  It will also let her know how special her daughter is because her friends are sending love & kindess to someone they do not know because we care!   

I used Gina K's Tropical Flowers, one of my favorite floral sets when I want to make a quick card!  After I stamped my flowers, I made highlights with a black multi-liner pen - love how it makes the flowers pop with the black matting as well.  The designer paper used is Rockabilly Specialty double-sided paper by SU! which is Kiwi Kiss, Real Read, White & Basic Black {so thrilled about having black designer paper) there is gloss to some of the designs on here that I just love!  The sentiment is from the new set Tag Lines, which you can get for free when you purchase 3 other sets this month!  I love the fact they all fit on the Nestabilities tags!  The ribbon used is SU! kiwi & vanilla satin ribbon and the black pearls are by Kaiser, purchased at Taylored Expressions.  

If you'd like to send virtual wishes to Gina click on the following links (Sympathy or Birthday) but also know it's never too late to send a card via snail mail...it would brighten her day anyday to receive it!  Just send it to:
