Thinking of You Card

First of all, I was so excited earlier this week when I clicked on my blog, and I FINALLY had 300 followers.  It seems as if I went from 50 to 250 pretty quickly, but it was very slow going from 250 to 300.  I appreciate everyone who visits here, and especially those who comment, since we all know how much work it is to maintain a blog.  I never dreamed when I started this blog that I'd ever get to 300 followers!  Thanks for being a little part of my blogging life!

And now, the real reason for this post:  A co-worker had to have some minor surgery last week, and ended up being out of work this entire week.  This is the "thinking of you" card I made for her.  Here are the details:

Size:  5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Card Stock:  Recollections and Core'dinations
Patterned papers:  My Mind's Eye
Scalloped Lacy Circles:  Spellbinders Nestabilities
Bird:  Stampin' Up Punch
Leaves:  Martha Stewart punch
"Thinking of":  Computer generated and punched using 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches and a 1 1/2" scalloped circle punch
"U":  Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/2"
Scalloped Circle Behind "U":  Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge cut at 2".  I embossed the top layer using my Cuttlebug
Fancy Corners:  Cuttlebug dies

I am entering this for the sketch challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

That's about it!   Thanks for your kind words that mean so much!  Have a blessed, crafty day!
