Thinking of you...

I've been thinking of my MOUSE friend (house mouse online group friend) in California. In fact, I have TWO mouse friends I've been thinking of in California but this goes to one of them, and also later, I'll upload another "thinking of you" card for another friend...
She's been rather healthy (like me :-) ) but for the last couple of months, she has been having more doctors appointments than she's ever had, in such a short time. So I've been wanting to make a card to give her a bit of smile, and shows her I've been thinking about her and praying...
Lavender & purple always calm my nerve down :-) I luv working with the color & the flower. It just relaxes me, since I was a 4th grader... :-) And now you know why I have THIS blog name & profile picture. :-)  Flower soft never appealed to me til I met THIS house mouse stamp & this color of flower soft :-) I luv how it looks. Hope you agree with me too. lol :-)

I also loved this week's challenge sketch at the Sweet Stops. And I finally got a chance to USE new papers from DCWV which I found at Joann right before I left PA, and BROGHT them with me in my carry on, because I got nervous for missing luggage & in the mail. I fell in love with these 2 stacks of papers from DCWV, and guess what the name is; the Chateau Lavender Matstack & its Cardstock Matstack. :-) Now you know how much I love Lavender! lol! When you have great papers, you just want to use them as many as possible, and so do I :-) I usually don't decorate inside of the card, but I did, for this, using the same paper I used (circles) for upper and bottom corners of the front. I even used a small part of the paper for the sentiment from this stack :-) It may not show on the pciture but the card stock I layered the main image & the sentiment are shimmery paper. Hope this card will give her a bit of relaxation when she looks at it ...
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. Have a great long weekend! :-)
