My mail box this week has been full.... I got a lovely big envelope from the lovely Paula. She and I have been trading stamped images and she sent me a LOT of Penny Black images with this beautiful card. Isn't it just adorable. I loved the layout she used on the card, and she had included the image as well. Now my friend, Sue, is a lover of anything Daisies!!!! So I decided to have a go at colouring in the image and use the layout to make a card for her. Sue has just passed 1 year since she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, so this card was to say - Keep Healthy.
I used my aqua crayons to colour in the image. To achieve the look of the H2O's Paula used, I used watered down Perfect Pearls. Then I used some yellow paper that I put through my CB to emboss with even more daisies....added a paper ribbon and strip of scalloped edged card, a couple of flowers and ribbon. Sue just loved it when I gave it to her.
Next day in my mail box was the give away I won on Hero Art's blog.
It is the lovely Cling stamp- 3 Flowers. Wasn't I just the luckiest. I haven't made anything with it yet... still pondering on it, but no doubt will come up with something soon.
I won't get any cards made this weekend as we are having a family get-together at my BIL and SIL's place at the beach. Graham as organised it so we can have a good reason for getting together, instead of the all sad ones we had in June/July. We head off mid afternoon tomorrow. Should be fun, even if the forecast is for not such good weather. I'll take a book with me and get some reading done, if it rains.
Well thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend everyone.
