Sending Cheery Thoughts

How about some cheery cards with lots of colors to make them pop and brighten someones day! Who doesn't need that these days? I mean, it has rained so much here that I'm about to build an ark! Maybe I should have stamped animals 2 by 2?! I used a smattering of fun stamps and embellishments, whatever made me smile!

A Hero Arts birdie on a branchie ... with a message circled in blue rhinestones ... makes me giddy! "You're Tweet!" I know I know -- the "T" is kinda off but then again, I think it looks kinda cute that way. I started to re-do it, but sense got the best of me. If you want a perfect card, go to Hallmark (that's what my sister always says, and I believe everything she says).

A good friend of mine is having some medical tests done this week on her ticker (i.e. heart) so I stamped this heart tree for her so she knows she is in my prayers. All of the cards use PaperTrey AquaMist Cardstock (have you tried that stuff?! Oh my heck, it is the best when it comes to heavy cardstock!), and all of the card backgrounds are stamped with PaperTrey's Polka Dot Basics.

These two sweeties were part of the April Unity KOM. What a bargain! I'm big into buttons these days, are you? I hope these Cheery Thoughts brightened your day! And that you don't have enough rain to consider building an ark ....

Wow, Kay, the paper choices on these cards ...awesome. I love each one with the cheery burst of color and sentiments. Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello and I will take a look at the sewing hints site. Sounds like something I'd like to try.
Have a great Friday.

How cute & cheerful ... thanks for that!!! Hope you're having a "dryer" weekend ... it's beautiful and in the 80's here in NE Ohio ... too bad I'm sitting inside the hospital all day ... oh well, better (and more sunshine) days ahead!! Keep up the good uplifting work ...
