Thinking of you Marjorie

A very dear cyber friend sent me this beautiful card along with a lovely note. I so enjoyed this card I decided I would love to try to duplicate the card. Although I didn't have the SU stamp set she used I had this stamp similar to her's. Thank you Marjorie for the kind words and the beautiful card you are a gift to me.

I used SU Old Olive, Hunter Green (retired), So Saffron and SU DSP To the Nines, I used SU Basic Pearls, Victoria 5/8 inch Crochet Trim and the tiny flower from the triple flower punch of SU. I used the pens to ink up the stamp and although you can't see them to well I colored the stamp branches with Old Olive, So Saffron, Bashful Blue and YoYo Yellow. The stamp I used is from Ellen Hutson and I really like the cloning but I love Marjorie's card the best. I'll add these to the stack of cards I have going to OWH this month and remember the pattern since I really enjoyed making these cards.
Personal Journey: As you can see it's late and one of those nights that for the love of me I can't go to sleep. I've tried twice now to lay down but I just can't go to sleep so I thought I would blog. Mom is back at the nursing home and I'm finally back on a normal schedule. She had her two week check-up yesterday and the doctor says she's doing wonderful. He can't get over the recovery she's had and thinks she'll do just fine. I'm just relieved that she did so well and that I survived without killing one of the doctors at the hospital. They sure had my blood boiling but hey thats over and I need to realize how blessed I am. I have two beautiful daughters, seven grandchildren, a 92 year old Mother in better health than I, a brother identical to Mom and faith that life couldn't be better. I have great friends and super Cyber friends and what more could a person ask for? You all have a wonderful weekend and remember 'Pay it Forward'.
