Gossip Club

I love this image!! it is so fun choosing sentiments to go with it. There are many that would be appropriate. I made this card for my step Mother to brighten her day after surgery.

The image "Gossip Club" is by Art Impressions. The patterned paper does not show very well in this picture but it is a glitter paper. I really rarely buy the glittered paper because it is way! too expensive but this paper caught my eye for my step mother's card. It reminds me a of a dress I sewed in about 1985. When I visited my Dad and his wife she fell in LOVE! with this dress so I gave it to her : ) I doubt she remembered that dress when she saw the card - but it is pretty paper isn't it?

I was really in the mood for something springy. It is gloomy outside today. We are supposed to be getting a huge amount of snow today but it looks as though it may be passing us by - so far we have only gotten a dusting. I'm SO ready for spring!! but in Wisconsin it is still a long way off. : )

I hope you are having a great day and are happy in your heart!

Your step Mother will love this card. I love it too. Those ladies bring a big ole smile to my face. I think that is so sweet that you bought paper special for her to make this card. You are so thoughtful. and she is blessed to have you for a daughter.
Fantastic card and I love the sentiment too.
I'm sorry your weather is gloomy. I hope spring rears it's head for you and soon!

Hey patti- I had a little trouble with Rae's picture as well, so in the end I right clicked on it, saved it to my computer and added it to my blog that way. It seems like you have it on your blog though, so I assume you got it all worked out? :)

Patti, Thanks so much for your comment on the PC blog. I am so much enjoying the "card-making community"--everyone is so encouraging and generous...and TALENTED! I learn something from every blog or gallery I look at.

Your card today is great! I am going to try out stamping on glitter paper today. And I love the story behind the card--so funny!

I have to comment on all the recipe "cards"--what a great treatment for special recipes! I am thinking of making a scrapbook, or even framing mine for display in the kitchen!

Again, thanks for the encouragement--and the ideas!

Great card...love the front and the inside. It is so true. Does holding a baby count as exercise? I tried doing situps while holding her but it was actually exercise. :)
