Thinking of Marie


Hi everyone.  Today's challenge at ATS&M (#111) is dedicated to our sweet friend, Marie (baileyrosy).  Marie is having a tough time with medical issues right now and in lots of pain.  So we are changing up our Anything Goes challenge to include an optional twist of creating a "Get Well / Thinking of You" card for Marie.

Hi Marie.  Here's my card made especially for you.  I hope this party with beautiful cards brings a smile to your face.  The card above is currently whisking it's way to you ... hopefully you'll get it soon!  Take care and get well!! xx







Stamps:  Simply Soft (SU!); A Little Sentimental (Clearly Besotted)
Paper:  White (Neenah); watercolor (Arches 140 lb. cold press)
Ink:  Archival Black Ink (Ranger); Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Cajun Craze (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  water mister, water paint brush
