Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back at the end of October, Cherylquilts was named as the Featured Stamper. I've been intending to create a card in her honour ever since. We left that same day for a month away, got home just in time for Christmas and I seem to have been in 'catch-up mode' ever since!
Cheryl is a fabulous stamper, sweet person and, one of the few SCSers that I've actually met. I was fortunate to spend an afternoon with Cheryl and BeckyTE when I was in Florida last year and I'm hoping to repeat the happy experience next month when I'm back in Florida for a few days.
I chose Cheryl's pretty Thinking of You Flowers card to CASE. Changed the colours, the stamp set, the punch. Used layered ovals for my sentiment.
This card went to a cousin of my DH who recently lost her Dad. He was the last of his generation and he will be missed.
Thanks for stopping by. Sorry to take so long to get a card up in my gallery Cheryl!
PT: 4 different punches; fussy-cut the flowers.
Added this to the StampinB challenge for this week as it was to use a flower on a card. :)
After Dottie & Greta and the Purple Cow, it was time a put a card with a little substance to it in my gallery! :)

What beautiful colors this card has! Pretty flower too. I commend you on going back and doing the FS from waaay back. I know what you mean about feeling like you are in catch up mode - seems I have been doing that for months as well. I hate when life eats into my stamping time!

And, substance it is my Dizzi friend!! I LOVE this version of Cheryl's card. Both Cheryl and Becky makes incredible cards and you were so fortunate to meet up with them. Your flower is GORGEOUS, love your dp and that fabulous border punching. What a wonderful card to express sympathy for your DH's cousin. Sorry, I don't have anything funny to say today. I've lost my mojo and sense of humor which I'm sure you don't have a problem with!
