Stampin'Up! A Kind Word

This card reminds me of my middle sister, Margaret. I grew up in a family of three girls. Two of us were quite the Tom boys but Margaret was the girly girl of all of us. She loved to put on dresses and she had beautiful, curly, red hair. I can see my sister in a swing, under a tree, bare footed, at our home in Virginia. Great memories! This card will be making its way to my sister, Margaret!
She is taking on a marathon for Team in Training and has been struggling with blisters on her feet. I think this little girl will be the encouragement she needs!

The inspiration for the card came from the Saturday Our Creative Corner challenge.
I used A Kind Word stamp set and colored it using Stampin' Write markers and a Blender Pen. The Blender Pen gives a softer affect than the markers alone. At first I thought I may have over done the flowers but the Hemp twine threaded through the Flower Fusion flowers was a perfect addition for me.

If you would like to create your own card using A Kind Word stamp set and these supplies, see the recipe below. As always, I'm here as your on-line demonstrator, ready to assist you with any project. I'm just a click away!

What a sweet sister you are! The bare feet and carefree atittude of this stamped little girl should make your sister smile, and her blisters heal faster!

What a wonderfully sweet card! I love how you did the flowers on twine to reflect the flowers on the swing - very creative!
