To a Special Friend

Good morning everyone, it's cold today here in Yorkshire, my hubby had to scrape the ice of his van this morning!!  Brrr I don't likey lol!!  Roll on Summer!

Straight on to my card today as I'm on work soon... I have used 'Art Pad -set 19' from LOTV again, these images are pre-coloured and very stylish, I just added some Diamond Stickles and Voilà job done!

I don't think I have quiet got the balance right on this one, but once everything is stuck down it wont move lol!! I have inked the card and paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Vintage Photo.  I also inked the lovely roses (Wild Orchid Crafts) to give them a more muted look, they look lovely in real life.. The gorgeous papers are from LOTV... Country Lady by Mary Fran.. Sentiments also LOTV.. 'Quoteables Set 62 Friendship' and ' Scroll sentiments', Cheery Lynn and Martha Stewart 'Butterflies', and finished off with a Doo hickey die and lovely pearls from 'Hobby House'

  19. Hi there! Havn't forgotten about you. :) Just struggling a bit at the moment. So glad to hear that you are all doing fine. It warms my heart. Hope this fresh year will hold lots of joy and happiness for you and your family. Getting some hearing aid in two weeks - a bit nervous but they are tiny. I hear obviously bass for good and bright sound too bad. :) It's so good to see you create again and your use of the lovely pre-coloured images is a joy to the eye. Looking forward to see more of you this year. :)
    Love n hugs
    Ps, All my love to your mum too. :)
