a couple from this afternoon

Today our entire shop was treated to lunch by a local construction co. we do business with. and DH asked for a Large "frilly" thank-you card... so, after riffling through my already colored images tin settled on this daisy swing hedgie... figured you cant get much frillier then lace and scallops... and its HUGE. 5 1/2" x8" in real life. the hedgies stamped on gp110 and colored with prisma pencils there is some gold liquid pearls in the centers of the daisy flowers. (this panel is up on pop dots) the sentiments from SU, the textured green & Yellow cardstocks are from Bazzill, the printed paper is from K&Co and the lace is from wrights.
This one's for Glinda's family. i know the colors are not what you'd expect to see on an sympathy card but, i could not make my self make the card dark and gloomy. She was such a special beautiful lady i wanted to send her family something that expressed how i felt about her. she will be dearly missed by many many stampers.

Wow these cards are great! So glad I found your site through a comment you made on scs. You asked if the jeans pocket could hold a gift card. The answer is yes, but OMgosh I never thought of that. How funny!! It would make a great teen gift then.
