This card came together really quickly. I used the lovely text stamp from Pretty Poppies for the thin panel in grey. I used my Spellbinders to cut a white panel and the soft aqua mat panel (most of which is hidden) as I cut off most of the scalloped edges (being totally faithful to the sketch). I masked off the edges of the white panel and stamped the daisies in vibrant yellow and finished off with a bold thank you in red! This card is already in the post.
I said earlier that I'd had a super weekend - well I did. I got the gardening done which is a huge achievement for me as I'm not a gardening fan. I love pretty gardens, just don't like doing the work to make them that way!!!
And yesterday was my birthday. It was such a great day. After my morning walk, Jonathan and Kathryn made me breakfast and then I opened all my lovely cards. I got a huge envelope of cards from my crafting group in Wales (I miss them all so much) as well as that envelope I had lots from other family and friends. Here are a few photos of my cards - they WILL be staying on display for at least a week!
All the cards - on top of our bookshelf.
And yet more!! The card that opens at the front with the "for you" and butterfly was made by Kathryn - so pleased with it.
Well that's all for now - I've got a lot of preparation to do - only 10 days until Kathryn and I fly back to the UK for a whole month!!! It's going to be so, so busy and we are both really looking forward to it. See you soon!
