Thinking of You x 2

Thinking of You x 2 Hello all! Today I have a couple of cards created with some of my Hero Arts products to make a few thinking of you cards and inspired by a few challenges: Crafty Catz #580 (anything goes with optional twist-add flowers), Daring Cardmakers' challenge "in frame" (on the second card), Aud Sentiments' challenge #290-anything goes + a sentiment , Simon Say's Stamp's Wednesday challenge (anything goes) and finally Passion for Marker's challenge #625-embossing . One of my big crafty projects over the last couple of years is to donate 300 cards to Bring Smiles to Seniors , which sends cards to seniors who don't have a lot of friends and family. This organization needs mostly hello/generic cards so I focus on those a lot over the course of the year. I think these two cards are so bright and pretty and hopefully they will make someone's day. Before you get to looking the cards, I just wanted to apologize about card #2's pictures. W
