Fall Floral Thinking of You Card

Hello! There are many times in life that a Thinking of You Card is needed. This Fall Floral Thinking of You Card was made for my grandmother. She has dementia and the last month has been really rough for her. Yesterday I went through all of my cards and none of them were what I wanted to send, so I made this one special for her.💜

A couple of years ago I saw a card by Nancy Leedy and fell in love with the colors and floral arrangement. She used the Birthday Blooms stamp set with the leaves from the Colorful Seasons stamp set both by Stampin' Up!. I would have never thought of combining the two stamp sets without seeing her card. It's taken me a couple of years to use the two together but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Now I have the perfect card for my grandmother. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Challenges entered:

Using different colors for the flower I made as second card to send to a family friend who is fighting pancreatic cancer. 


  1. WOW, Andrea your coloring is amazing. Those are wonderful cards for people who need something beautiful to cheer them up.

  2. Both of these are gorgeous, Andrea! Love these colours for fall! Your colouring looks amazing! Sorry to read about your grandmother - I know she will appreciate your beautiful card! I wish my grandparents were still living as they passed before I started making cards. One of my grandfathers lived until 97 so I did get to shower him with cards when I first started making them but.

    Also so sorry about your friend - I hope he/she will be okay - that's a nasty cancer to have. Sending hugs...

  3. A truly beautiful design in gorgeous colours Andrea

  4. A lovely pair of cards Andrea. Great colour scheme and good use of the wood panel DSP in the background. I'm sure your grandmother and friend loved them. Thanks for joining us this week at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. Tristan DT.
