Getting tired of me yet??

Hi all

Yes... me again...  I seem to be on a roll, so am blogging like mad.... hope you don't get fed up!

Today's card is one I made for my lovely friend Christine (Nanaseaside)...  whose birthday it was this week... and she was a poorly person too when I rang her... I think I should have sent a get well card tucked inside this!  Hope you're feeling better now Christine..

Sideways View

Believe it or not, when I took this photo, the sun was shining... hence some shadows on the photograph!  I chose to do an easel card as I felt like doing something a bit different than my usual boring side openings...  

I was pleased with the colouring on this card... as you know, red is notoriously difficult to stop bleeding...  anyways, think I managed it!  I thought this image reminded me of Christine and I at the Harrogate show....  though maybe in our younger days!

Card Recipe:
  • Image - Mabel Lucy Atwell 'Little Whispers' - Clear Stamps from Katie Sue Designs - bought from Sammy Taylors at Embsay
  • Paper - Jillybean Soup - Old World Cabbage Stew
  • Dies - Cheery Lynn Daisy Strip for the flowers, and Spellbinders Stately Circles for the image
  • Glitter, Stickles, Lace, Gems and Buttons from Stash
While I'm here.... can I also say a big welcome to my new followers.... my little band grows ever stronger... and I'm so happy that you've chosen to follow my work...  it gives me a nice happy feeling... so thank you!

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting..
