Heartfelt Thanks

Hi Bloggers.

Phew! What a busy few days. Today is going to be spent getting my website orders posted, unpacking, washing, food shopping and if there's anytime left I'll be continuing with my prep for Sunday's One Day Special on Hochanda! Double Phew!

Here's today's card -

This card is made using Sue Wilson's Australian Background Die Set with the addition of a few flowers made using Sue's Sweetheart Flowers Die Set. I used Coconut White and Teal Card.

The sentiment is from Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments stamped using Cobalt Archival.

I added some White Pearl Corners and pierced around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Janet Hampson

    Sounds as though your worn out with all your recent craft shows, hopefully you'll find time for at least 10 minutes sit down with a nice cuppa & get your strength back for Sunday's Hochanda show, which I'll be watching.

    Lovely colours which look clean and fresh.

  44. Hi Julia
    I'm sorry this comment is late I had a bad day yesterday and wasn't up to it.
    I adore this card.
    I love the teal and white colour palette.
    The flowers really make the card more special.
    I love the Australian background die it's so pretty.
    Must try a card similar to this with my new dies I got from you.
    Best wishes from Katie-Louise sweetlove
