Pretty Very Vintage Floral card


Good Morning Ladies, 

How are we at Thursday already??? This week has absolutely flown by.  We had the best day of  the year weather wise yesterday, beautiful ๐ŸŒž sunshine all day and lovely and warm too, in fact we walked to the post box to post Paul's Mum's Birthday/ Mother's Day cards, it was that lovely that we decided to go and look at the river and then went for a walk around the village,  it was odd not seeing people out and about but with so many having covid I guess they were lying low inside.  Becca felt too exhausted to do anything yesterday, she said she just wanted to sleep, she is usually a real "busy bee", she gets bored sat doing nothing, the other symptom she was telling me about was theat she was absolutely ravenous! She had to do an amazon food shop to stock up as Adam wouldn't be home until after 9pm.  I really wanted to suggest that she came home to recuperate but we don't want to catch it, which makes me feel so mean!  I kept checking on her throughout the day though, bless her, I hope she is over it   

Today's card I made yesterday afternoon,  I wanted something Spring looking,  so decided to use Yellow/Green before I decided on the stamp set.  Now I don't remember using this stamp as a focal point on a card before , its the floral spray from the Very Vintage Stampin Up! Stamp set.  I placed the stamp into my stamp platform and coloured the image with my Zig Clean Colour pens, after colouring the image I misted the stamp with water and stamped it onto white card, I cut the image down and added a mat of card that I coloured with the same green marker,  I added some stamping to the background using the doily stamp from the set coloured with the yellow marker.  To finish the card I added some Yellow gingham ribbon to the stamped centre piece and added a tag stamped with a 'Thanks' sentiment. I coloured a second with green pen and adhered that to the back of the sentiment and attached to the card with a bit more of the ribbon.

I hope that we are all blessed with another beautiful day today.

Sending my love and hugs to you all,

Take extra care and please stay safe,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Everyone
    Just love today's card SANDRA. Such pretty Spring colourws which put a smile on my face.

    Well it's a busy day for me today. I have to go across to my surgery for my Annual MOT this morning.This will be the first time in two years that I've actually attended the surgery. I've had to send them my BP readings and they have just renewed my tablets. It will be interesting.
    This afternoon I have my 'foot' lady coming so I shall have 'happy feet' by the end of the day.

    The CAFE is of course OPEN ready and waiting for you to pop in for a cuppa and a chat.
    HUGS are on their way to you all.POLEASE TAKE GREAT CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  2. Pretty Very pretty The colours are zingy and Spring like
    There’s an old saying “feed a cold starve a fever” so maybe that’s why Becca feels like she does๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍♀️Just a thought ๐Ÿคฃ I hope she is better soon
    Seeing my niece was lovely We had a great catch up
    After work I hope to just make use of this sunshine After all we don’t get it much
    Take care everyone I hope you’re beginning to feel better Lilian xx

  3. Morning everyone
    a very pretty card Sandra. Lovely to see spring has come and the flowers are starting to come out from their long sleep.
    Another gorgeous day but have no plans for anything so will probably sit outside reading when it warmed up a bit. Need to tidy my work top before any chance to do any crafting but every time I look at it I turned around and walked away hihihi haven't got a door to shut.
    Have a nice day everyone. Hugs Maria xx

  4. Hi everyone
    Love your pretty card today, with its Spring colours it’s beautiful ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I hope Becca is soon feeling better. Very difficult when all you want to do is look after her, but don’t want to end up catching it yourself. I’m sure she understands and your frequent check ins are very appreciated ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Luke had a negative test today, and says he feels ok. It’s strange how it affects people differently, but I’m guessing because he’s already had it that it’s not as bad the second time round?
    Hope your MOT went well Janet xx
    Enjoy the rest of today’s sunshine everyone and have a good evening. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  5. Hello Sandra and everyone,

    Yesterday was very frustrating tried every way to comment but my comments kept disappearing. So today fingers crossed it publishes.
    Take care everyone. xxx
