Thinking of you...

Happy February first everyone!
     Can you believe that it is already February?  Where oh where does the time go?   I can not believe that my M&Ms are already into their second semester of High School.  :O)
     Thank you everyone for the well wishes yesterday.  Mitchell and I both headed back to school and work and we are both feeling a lot better as of this morning.
     So, I think as I still need to get ready for work I had better get right to my card for today.  This is one of those cards that I really just put together as I wanted to play around with a few of my stamps that hadn't been inked up yet.  I grabbed my new  WS - Gracie from The Greeting Farm and then I pulled out this cute frame from  Lawn Fawn that I have had for at least two months and still had not used.  Once I put them together it reminded me of looking at a picture of an old friend and how you might start to thinking about that friend. With that in mind I decided to make this a 'Thinking of You'  kind of card.
     I also wanted to leave the picture as my focal point, so I left the rest of my card pretty simple and you'll even notice that I didn't even use a gem for the whole card.  Yes, I did use one little enamel dot so it would look like a tack in the wall where the picture hangs.  :O)   I really had fun with this one and with the fact that the whole card was really made just for me to color and not have a specific need in mind.  It is fun from time to time to just play and not worry about it going to someone or for that matter being made for anyone else.  :O)
     Hope you like it and I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.
Take care and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

So cute and I love how you added the string and button (?) at the top like it is hanging on a wall. You are always so creative, mixing and matching stuff, love to see what you come up with!
