Thank You Card

Not much chance for cardmaking lately. Hubby had outpatient surgery & Fritz hasn't quite healed up--probably got his activity restriction lifted too soon. Anyway, I'm being a nurse at home.  Hubby's improving every day & we're all sleeping better. Poor Fritz can't romp & jump--just walks. Tonight I finally put together a card for the 200th ODBD challenge to use Spring colors.  The sketch at FMS inspired me.  I used 2 images from ODBD Bird & Butterfly Labels & inked them both with the same Distress Inks (salty ocean, squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn) using a lighter touch on the top one which is mounted with foam tape.  I need a thank you card for my co-worker who bought me lunch while I waited for hubby to get out of surgery.  
Nice to actually use some of my 
alphabet stickers that fill a drawer! I added a touch of Stickles & used white paper twine. I'm also entering the Anything Goes challenge at SSS Wednesday.  
Thought it was time for another Fritz picture--he's such a cutie--not that I'm prejudiced!  Hubby thought I placed the bone on his paw, but he did that himself! So glad you stopped by.  Enjoy the weekend.

  5. Oh, Greta, what a beautiful card, and I really love the sketch too! Love how you've embossed the ODBD image and sponged with distress inks...a really fabulous effect! And the embossed background with the doily and twine finish off a beautiful thank-you card! So glad you were able to join us this week for the 200th ODBD Shining the Light challenge, sweet friend! And I'm glad to hear that "the boys" are starting to feel better! Been praying! Hugs!

  22. Your co-worker is going to bring you a whole bunch more lunches if the rewards are stunning cards like these! Greta, not only is this lovely (the 'little scenes' are soooo pretty), but the gesture is ever so heart-warming and thoughtful! You are just incredibly sweet!! Hope your husband and Fritz are on the mend; I'm sure they are, what with the spoiling and pampering you're giving them! As for Fritz and his treat - A-DOR-A-BLE!! Hugs~c
