SFOS card for Michelle

Hi, sorry for the lateness in posting this, I actually posted this card to Michelle last week just not got round to this bit. After I had heard about Michelle's accident, my heart went out to her and I just had to make a card, with the hope that it will make her smile, just for a little while. Hopefully a lot of other people are doing the same, can you imagine how that must feel receiving a lot of cards knowing your in so many peoples prayers and thoughts!

  • DP - Forever Friends
  • Tools - Nesties and Nellie
  • Punch - Martha Stewart
  • Stash - Brads
I think Debbie over at SFOS has done a fab job of putting this all together in such a short space of time, to have so many sponsors, who want to help is amazing, humanity isn't dead after all!

3 Buttons and 3 papers

Good Morning I wish the weather would make up its mind, one day is really hot the next we have been flung back into winter. I have to admit, was a really quick make this card and I have made it for Spoonful of Sugar challenge 3 buttons and 3 DP. I've had the pet stack for a few months now and this is the first time I've cut into it, I thought it was just perfect for this stamp. It has created a nice clean minimalistic card I think, enjoy the rest of your day and please leave a comment and then I can come and visit you.

Blooming Gorgeous

Hi two cards in one week, that hasn't happened in a while. I needed a card for my niece in New Zealand so I followed the challenge over on CCT. I've not had a go at this challenge for quite a while and I love playing with flowers. The image is Penny Black, bought this stamp in between Christmas and New year and can't stop using it. It is so easy to colour, DP is FF. Punches are MS and xcut. I did do a bit of sewing on the sewing machine (1st time) and it did go a bit wrong but it kinda adds to the charm of the card lol. Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for stopping by.
