When someone does something especially nice for you, it feels really good to create a card just for them. You can think about them in the process, both in terms of their preferences and tastes as well as their general goodness and importance in your life. Making a card for someone has really good energy.
I used Stampin’ Blends to add a little color to the image stamped in Memento Black on Whisper White card stock. In some cases I went right over the black images, and the result is more subtle color.
I used a needle to thread the Old Olive Linen thread through the stitches in the Daffodil Delight circle, making the thread bow more secure on the card. I’ll use a glue dot in a pinch, but I like my cards to stick together for a long time! A bow that is tied in place will hold on for much longer than one that is glued on.
This card is for a real gentleman. He is a genuine, warm, kind man – one of a kind.

Granny Apple Green is one of my favorite new greens in our color palette, and immediately presented itself as the perfect Frog color as I contemplated my options for So Hoppy Together. I’m no herpetologist, but I know a happy frog when I see one, and a Granny Apple Green frog is a Happy Frog!
Does anyone besides me remember that weird cartoon about the singing frog? And the guy who finds him and thinks he’ll be famous? And the frog won’t sing for anyone else? This little frog needs a top hat and I think he could play that role. (If this makes no sense to you, ignore it. That happens to me a lot. After they give me The Look.)
The handful of hearts reminds me of a bouquet, or a balloon, or even a scatter of those little cutout things that people put on the table when they’re decorating for a party and then you find them EVERYWHERE later on. They’re not quite as bad as glitter, but they’re up there. You know what I mean.
I’m delighted with the Stitched Rectangle Framelits. The set includes nesting sizes in different aspect ratios so you have a lot of options. The framelits leave stitching on both the positive and negative sides of the die cut – Stampin’ Up! really did their homework on this one!
I folded the Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love ribbon pack and left a tail hanging. I actually stapled the top together so I wouldn’t have to try to hold it in place as I was adhering it between the DSP and the focal panel. There’s Tear ‘n Tape on both sides of the ribbon embellishment holding it in place.
