So glad you’ve joined us for Day 2 of our Inspiration Hops! Today we are sharing another one of Melanie’s fun additions to her previous sets, Spring Basket and Basket Blessings so the versatility soars! These are the cutest animals so you can have basket buddies hanging out in her fun basket! On my card, I used the cats who are hanging out on the ‘banner’ or ‘cushion’, however you want to use it! I put the best friends sentiment inside because we all know, if you’ve had more than one cat, sometimes they can hate each other at first, but then become the best of friends!
This makes me miss our Chica (gone since Dec’09 on the bottom), who was best friends with Elsie. Here is an old picture I found of them when they used to sleep next to each other – so sweet. They didn’t like one another for a few days but really did become the best of friends!
Here is what you get in the set – cute huh? What is really great is that now you have something you can make sympathy cards for your friends who lose their pets. I know it’s always hard to some up with ideas for those difficult cards. But they really do mean a lot to the animals owners.
Next up is Theresa’s new set Heartfelt, a beautiful collection of images and sentiments to share your heart during the upcoming fall season (which we all will be welcoming with open arms, right!?)
I drew inspiration for this card from the very talented and sweet Debbie Olson, I just love how this card turned out (especially the uncolored stems and popped up blooms). Here is a close up of the crystal lacquer on the cone flowers.
Here is a picture of Theresa’s set, isn’t it just lovely??
