Card for a Friend

Hello there,

It seems like ages since I blogged but the last couple of weeks have been busy ones with one thing and another.  Crafty Individuals have a few shows coming up shortly, the first two being on the 29th of March, so I've been making some samples with their lovely stamps and papers.

It was lovely to see some sunshine yesterday and it actually felt like Spring had arrived.  Then my hairdresser said that we are likely to have more snow over Easter.........Noooo, enough is enough!  I'm ready for blue skies and a touch of sunshine now.

I thought I'd share a card with you today that I made for my blogging friend Leanne as it was her birthday a short while ago:

The Baroque Splatter Script stamp is by Crafty Individuals and the butterfly and sentiment are by Inkylicious.  The background was made using Distress Oxide inks.

That's all from me today, so I'll wish you all a very happy and colourful weekend x

What an absolutely beautiful card, Sandma! Your friend will love this. Thank you soooo much for your amazing comment on my blog about my mini-album which has quite made my day! You have really appreciated the effect I wanted to achieve. It was a great experience creating it and I almost feel a sense of loss now that it’s finished! I had to pull out all the stops to finish it in time.
