Sending Warm Wishes

You may not have heard from me as much lately, but I sure am doing artwork!  I've been doing a lot of design team work, so in time you will see it all!  Today, though, I wanted to put together a quick card for Sentimental Sundays.  I loved the sketch they have, and I knew just what items I wanted to use, so it came together relatively quickly!


I used CTMH chocolate textured cardstock for the base.  I think I noticed when I was browsing through the catalog that they no longer have textured cardstock.  I am very, very sad!!  I would be willing to pay more $$ to have all of my CTMH cardstock textured.  I love the many ways it sands.  I have tried other brands, but with out the solid white core, it's just not the same.  A few other CTMH items I used are Pretty Pins, Cherry-O patterned paper, and a Big Pink flower.  If you like these things, contact your consultant soon!  I understand that they are all on the retiring list.  The ribbon is May Arts and the gems are Mark Richards.

I also entering this card in the Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge (ribbon).
