Itâs been a whole month since Iâve uploaded a card. Iâve been so busy with DHâs recovery from knee surgery, but he is doing so much better and feels almost normal (as he finishes up PT soon). So thankful for wonderful medical care and for all the prayers for both of us.
I enjoyed this bouquet filled with such a delightful collection of botanical elements. It was a challenge for me, as I tried to figure out what colors would work together. Still not sure I love it all, but I did enjoy coloring. Kept a simple layout with a mat of Almost Amethyst and then mounted it on some textured Bazzill card stock. That was it.
DH finally put away the Cold Rush and ice-making machine, and now our living room is looking normal again. Yay! I am hoping to start making more cards again. I sure have missed that. But a big thank you to all my precious friends for your prayers and thoughts for both of us. And thank you for the many Best of 2018 favorites. I absolutely love SCS for the encouragement and love from all my friends here. Hugs and love to you all! xoxo

Just exquisite, Cheryl!! I saw this on the poppy stamps website and figured that I would see it in your gallery sooner or later, and I am glad it's sooner!!! I love the little shamrock leaves sprinkled throughout the bouquet! Faved.
(So glad your DH is doing well, Yea!!!!)

Oh, Cheryl, it is wonderful to see that you found time to create and share this marvelous card. Your coloring skills are magnificent and the colors chosen are beautiful together! There are so many details to each flower and leaf. It is obvious that you put so much love into making this awesome card. Cheryl, I am happy to hear that Walt is doing much better and you both are reaching the end of this journey! God bless you both! Hugs, sweet friend!
