Sweet Card for Special Friend!
Todays cards started with the stamp, its an old Penny Black stamp, it rather reminded me of three crafting friends that get together to craft!, Anyone get the similarities?
I stamped the image and coloured in with mostly water colour pens and pencils but a few bits with promarkers too. I then decided to frame the image, which I did using the Austrian Collection Innsbruck Die set by Creative Expressions, the gate the cows are leaning on has grass and flowers and a hedge at either site of the gate, I decided I would bring that out of the frame using my favourite foliage dies from Impression Obsession, also the tiny flowers are from them too, I wanted it to look like a meadow. I put the stamped and framed centre piece onto the largest die from Californian Collection Decorative Frames set (B) to lift it from the background.
I then added a piece of White Tulle, topped that with a bow made from White Silky crush ribbon, fixed together with a matching green pearl brad. I popped a tiny rose and foliage in the top right corner of the card for balance.
If you are just passing through please stop and say hi, I am lucky to have some very lovely, friendly ladies stop by my blog each day and they would be as pleased to see your comment as I would.
Thanks for all your kind thoughts regarding the party,
I think sense took control on Friday night and I decided it was just going to be too much, as it happened poor Matt has been really unwell today, he hasn't even kept down any water, I am guessing that as he has reduced immunity due to the drugs he takes for his Arthritis, the bug has affected him worse as his body hasn't the strength to fight it off, I certainly wouldn't have gone and left him, he may be 22 but everyone needs someone to care for them when they are poorly, my only no go thing is Vomit, I can't go within feet of it as I would end up doing the same, just hearing the poor lad turned my stomach today! so it looks like we were destined not to go! My friend totally understood, she said she knew how I suffered after a long journey and didn't me doing it twice in 5 hours, there were 90 people going the party so I don't think we will be missed too much!
Well that's all for me for now, thank you all so much for your lovely comments,
Huge warming hugs,
