After a nasty bout with the flu (still lingering but ooooh, so much improved), I had a chance to play with my paper and ink again!  Getting my mojo going was definitely good medicine.


  • A Stampin’ Up! 1″ Circle Punch helped me create a bold pattern that was inspired by this fashion magazine cover.

  • A single Calypso Coral heart and coordinating Ruffled Ribbon are the perfect contrast for the neutral background.

  1. Sorry you have not been well–but by the looks of this card, your mojo is definitely back. I wish my cards to look as amazing when I’m well as yours do when you are under the weather. Brava!

  2. Carol Carriveau

    Glad that you are feeling better – loving your inspiration and your card! Take good care! Thanks for the tip for tying the knot!

  3. The key for tying a knot that lays flat is to hold one side firm and pull with the other (rather than pulling from both sides).

  4. OMG I had the flu a few weeks ago and it was nasty stuff. Glad you are feeling better. I love the colors in this card along with the whole concept of easy peasy but sassy and classy at the same time. You rock. Feel better sooner than soon. Hugs, Becky

  5. As always, clean, crisp; chic and modern. Love it, Mary.

  20. Feel better Mary! Wow, even the cards you make when you’re sick are incredible!

  21. Mary, I’m so glad you are feeling better, more healing~~~~~for you!!
