So Very Kind

Used two of the flowers and the sentiment in Watercolor Bouquet by The Stamp Market to make this soft card. There's a Blizzard Nuvo crystal drop in the center of the pink flower, and for some reason I think it is so very important that you know this!

Speaking of things worth knowing, did you see that the owner of the MISTI got a patent? I'm so happy for her -- a former customer who has now sold MILLIONS of these things and making serious money (did a little googling and found that number in some legal papers)!!!! Good for her.

MOOD WHEN DONE = If you saw the cyclone of tried, but discarded, cards in my craft room right now, you'd know I'm sighing with relief that I made something I like!

I'm headed back to Boston on Sunday for another medical appointment, where I hope to get some final answers. I'm a little (ok, a lot) frustrated so I'm trying my best to keep perspective.  I've got a pretty good gig going, life-wise, so I'm taking some deep breaths, and making believe I'm chock full of maturity and wisdom. Thanks so much to all of you who are holding my hand virtually!

If you celebrate Easter, I hope it is a a good one!

  8. It is very pretty and sweet. I can't resist a yellow, pink, and green color combo. You have a cyclone, I have an explosion. Good luck in Boston getting answers you can work with.

  9. You know I saw the post on My sweet Petunia's blog and I was so happy for her. Seeing the blatant copy from another stamp company at Michael's this winter really upset me.
    Good luck in Boston and stay positive!
    I like your card also, by the way.

  10. I hope all goes well for you in Boston! BTW Your card is so beautiful, so stylish! Sending prayers for a happy outcome! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx
