Some Chocolates for My Parents



It is Pink and Black at Squigglefly (SF0613). I am so running low on time this week with extra overtime, only one car in the family since Kenny's Truck is in the shop, Valentines, and packing for my crafting retreat this weekend! Ok, those of you who know me well know that I haven't packed a thing yet. Anyway, I couldn't resist participating in the Squigglefly challenge which was the perfect opportunity to use this wonderful Maria Shega Cherry Cordial image. I mention I was low on time because I wanted you to know how fast I made this card - less than 30 minutes and that includes purchasing the image, downloading it, transferring it to a thumb drive, moving it to another computer (I like word on my laptop instead of the Apple version on my desktop), putting it in word with a sentiment (the time to think of the sentiment too), dragging my printer in here to the Kitchen Counter, printing the sentiment, hunting for the paper, cutting it all out, and sticking it altogether. It would have taken a lot less time if I had been organized or already had the image. These detailed images at Squigglefly are easy to make fast cards with because they don't have to be colored. My Pop loves cherry cordials and my Mom loves everything so this will make a great Valentine's card for them. I am also loading this card in the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS since the challenge is actually all about my parents this week. The group is making cards and sending them to my parents to give them some support through my Mom's cancer treatments and this very difficult year they have both been through. Those Tea Party Sisters the best! Have to run get ready for work.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY HUGS to all!

  1. Your mom and pop are going to love this card above all the others they receive this week...because it is from you. I've seen some awesome cards heading their way. This is a great card and so sweet.
    I love cherry cordials, too. Well, just about anything chocolate.
    Ha...this just wouldn't have worked for the 10 Dash Card Challenge. But, you got it finished and that's what counts. LOL
    Hope you have a great time at your crafting retreat!!!

  10. Nancy - what a special creation for your parents. I'm glad you mentioned the Teapot Tuesday challenge because I wouldn't have known - what a wonderful time your Mom will have getting everyone's special cards. She will feel all the love that was put into every one, and that will lift her spirits in the most beautiful way.
    Hugs and Blessings,
    Audrey

  12. Ooooops, missing for a while, so I had to make sure I got here, even if I got no where else!

    What an adorable card for your Mom and Dad for V Day - they are no different from you as far as love of chocolate goes, I am sure! After a crafting weekend, I bet all your jets were firing and that is why you got this done so fast - 30 min. and that includes downloading and all - I love the heart paper in the BG and the doily for a lacy look - the bling in the corners make this an extra special treat - bet you got huge hugs when you delivered this card!! LYMI!
