FMS385 Thinking of You

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Just a quick little post today before my stamping friends arrive, sharing a card I made with the FMS sketch for this week:

My card is a note card, which SU sells pre-cut and with envelopes...a great time-saver!  Plus the paper is Thick White cardstock, which makes it great for embossing and watercoloring!  I stamped the floral from Botanical Bliss in Stazon on a scrap of white paper, watercolored it and fussy-cut it out, then adhered it to a piece of Grapefruit Grove DSP and a strip of Gingham Gala DSP:

I did something I haven't done for a long time, which is heat emboss a background; there is a sweet little solid-image floral in that same set which I stamped in Craft White ink randomly on the card, then heat-embossed it with white embossing powder!  It gives a pretty little subtle background and is quick and easy to do on this size card!  I finished it off with a sentiment from Apron of Love:

Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another Paper Players challenge!

Thought I would share a few more cards I received in the mail:

This little cutie is from Sandy:

And another sweet one from Linda; the yellow cardstock is shimmery--so pretty!

A beautiful one from Teri:

And one of my favorites from Ruth Ann:

And a fun one from Kathy; Cassidy said "Grammy, doesn't she know that mooses don't hatch from eggs?"  LOL!!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Your stamped background adds a pretty detail LeAnne and I just love the bright pop f colour from the orange. Hope you had a fun stamping day with your gals. Cassidy’s comment on the Easter mooose made me laugh too; it suddenly reminded me of the Friends sketch with the Holiday Armadill pure comedy, Children are so matter-of-fact sometimes!

Love the background on this card! It's just right for a soft contrast with the orange. I'm inspired to try doing backgrounds more often instead of always reaching for dsp's.

Love your design and heat embossing. The moose card and Cassidy's comment are both too cute! Lovely Easter cards you received.

Oh, this is so pretty, LeAnne! Love the colors and your beautiful flower! Great job with the sketch! I played along this week, too! :) You certainly got a nice variety of Easter cards! Hope you had a fun class this morning! Mine is next Saturday morning! TFS and have a happy day! :)
