Thinking About the Tuesday Trigger!

Hi, everyone! Before I share today's card, let me just say a BIG thank you to all of you who leave such sweet comments for me! You gals make me smile each and every day! I thought that I would play along with the Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World today- I had an hour to kill while the boys (and hubby....) took a nap and was super inspired by this photo:



Here's my card:


Obviously, I was inspired by the super sweet color palette showcased in the photo. The buttery yellow, soft pink, and sage green peaked my interest and I started there! I adhered the three colors (PTI Lemon Tart, Sweet Blush, and Spring Moss) together and then cut the panel to a size I liked. Then, I used PTI's Delightful Doilies set to stamp this striking black doily image in the corner of the panel. The sentiment "Thinking of You" is from this past years anniversary set from PTI called Botanical Silhouettes. I adhered the panel to the Rustic Cream cardbase and scored a double line above and below the panel.

This one is going out in the mail today to my Grandmother who is battling a lot of pain right now. After losing her mother just a couple of weeks ago, she also lost her sister this week. I'm hoping that receiving this card in the mail will help her to know that I'm thinking of her and praying that her pain subsides with time. Missing my Great-Grandmom, missing my Aunt Sandy, and worried terribly about my MomMom and how she's feeling. Sometimes I really hate living so far from home.

Thanks again for all your kind words and support and thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my work! It means THE WORLD to me. See you again soon!

  8. What a gorgeous card, Steph! Now I think I really need that doily set.

    You, your grandmother, and your entire family will be in my thoughts. It is so hard to be away like you are, but I'm sure sending this card will help you feel just a little bit closer.

    This is just fabulous - fantastic take on the challenge. Now why did you have to show me that doily? I was doing just fine resisting it ;)
