So glad ....

.....  Hi, a quick post this morning to share a card that I've made for a friend of mine in the UK.  I found out yesterday that she had some jewellery stolen last year, she's very sad as not only was her house violated but she lost pieces with lots of sentimental value.  I know just how she feels, about 20 years my whole jewellery case was stolen and I lost items that I'd inherited from my Great Grandmother - still feel sad about that.  So I thought I'd make a card to let her know that I'm thinking about her. 


Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Bloomin' Marvellous
Inks: SU - Rich Razzleberry
Dies: SU/Sizzix Framelits - Apothecary Accents
Accessories:  SU Design Paper - Sycamore Street; Card, ribbon and gems from stash

I decided to use some of my new Sycamore Street design papers from the Sale-a-bration leaflet - love these papers.  I added a pale green ribbon to hid the join and then stamped this sweet sentiment onto plain white card, using the Framelit to cut it out and added some piercing using the coordinating paper piercing kit.  The butterfly and flower are from the same set, I stamped them and used my circle punch to cut them out.  I stamped the images again, cut them out and layered them onto the stamps.  I finished the front with a few gems.  I kept the inside simple making a mat layer in Rich Razzleberry and stamping another image and sentiment on to the white panel.  This will going off to my friend tomorrow, as I've discovered that today is a holiday and there's no post!!


I used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS69 for the layout, and I was going to enter into this week's Less is More - LIM103 challenge where the theme is "Friendship".  But this is obviously much MORE than LESS - so I'll have another go at LIM later this week!!

It started snowing this morning - so very pretty, but horrible to drive in!  Kathryn was not happy this morning as it's not heavy enough for a snow day!!  Still coming down now though.  Anyway, that's all for now - see you soon.

Really pretty card Deborah and how thoughtful to cheer up your friend - those kinds of burglaries are just so awful.

We've had loads of snow here again - hopefully that's the end of things for a few days.

Very pretty Deb, love that DP. Didn't go the the Ice Festival this year, have done many times though, we always seem to get a bit of a warm up in January around that time unfortunately. Although not much chance of it melting today!! I'm off work for MLK Day so we had breakfast in Northville and popped to Michaels and JoAnns quickly, very slidey out earlier. I plan on keeping warm and playing in my craft room today, bit nippy for a walk round the block!!

Hugs

This is the second story like this I've heard this week - it's so upsetting. Your friend will appreciate your support I'm sure Deborah. I love your card - those bright leaves are so gorgeous aren't they. I've just scheduled a card for tomorrow with this beautiful sentiment on it. Vicky x
