Delicious Doodles Creations

Hello All ... 
First a couple of updates for you . . .
Hubby is home again today after having ANOTHER kidney scope done on Wednesday.  He's still a bit uncomfortable & has some pain but I think is more ANNOYED than anything else!!  Waiting for results is sometimes more difficult than the testing!!
Daughter's friend Maria is really having a difficult time.  She's in a LOT of pain and they've done yet another MRI and hoping the outcome is better than anticipated.  I will keep you up to date on any changes but things sure don't look good.  If you'd like to send well wishes to Maria, please see my posting for information HERE.

NOW ... onto some Delicious Doodles fun!  I have two creations to share with you today using a couple of Teri's 'floral' images.  First is one of her newest images called 'Grass Silhouette' . . . you can find it HERE.  I enlarged this awesome image to make it cover the largest part of my A-6 card front.  I then added a Bahama Breeze cardstock matting onto a black card.  The faux stitching was done with a fine tip Prismacolor marker and Prisma flowers with Stampendous diamond dot centers were added for dimension.  How lucky was I to find this last piece of Offray satin ribbon that matched the cardstock perfectly!  The sentiment comes from a SU sympathy set.

Secondly is a card using Teri's beautifully drawn 'Gladioli' image ... found HERE.  You can color this image ANY color and create a variety of gorgeous cards in no time at all!  I actually was using up scraps in the making of this card and LOVE the end result!  So many of Teri's beautiful images can 'STAND ON THEIR OWN' and don't require a lot of fuss ... how great is that!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Yesterday was a fun day for me!  Yes, I was able to spend the entire day crafting with my friend Terri and daughter, Carolyn.  We all were in desperate need of some "ME TIME" so we took the day TOGETHER and actually got a lot accomplished!  Sure felt good!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

I am sending hugs and prayers your way for both your hubs and your daughter's friend, Dar! Waiting for those tests to come is always annoying, isn't it.

Your cards are so lovely! Simply gorgeous!

Just had a chance to go through your gallery (I'm so behind). Your cards are all so beautiful.

The cards are gorgeous!!! I thought I liked the blue one the best and then I scrolled down and the green one is just as pretty.

Got a msg from Maria, she spent the day with her hubby and children and had a great day together. The anti-nausea meds are helping. They will have more news/answers on Monday.

I had a fabulous time on Thursday. Can't believe I got sooo many Christmas cards done and it was a totally NO stress day.

Thank you Mom!!!
