This is a card I have "cased" but used a different stamp and colour version. Kimberly OF "Stampin' by the sea" provided the inspiration (thanks Kimberly! :) ). I have used SU Upsy Daisy in Veramark on Kraft paper, Hemp twine, vellum, textured CS in dull navy and cream. SU Sahara sand ink and almost navy ink. I used distressing techniques and watermark stamping. I like how it has turned out, not pretty pretty but restful. Now who gets this one I wonder!?

Lots of Love

I tried really hard today to get something out. I have had this set for ages and never used it so it seemed a good candidate. I don't use distressing techniques much so I applied them too. Anything to get a card out, I have been soooo stuck. So here is the one of two I made today.

Long time coming!

I have been off the radar lately, life has stepped a few notches not leaving me much time to make cards. I did make a few cards but I need to break the drought, meanwhile my friend over at Paper tree designs is prolific!

My friend Linda told me about her little neighbour. Only three and just arrived back home from yet another open heart surgery.
Linda asked me to include the little sweetheart in my prayers, I did and sent her this card.

This card is for a mummy and daddy going through some really tough times with a little one that arrived a bit too early.

I recently joined a group on Splitcoast Stampers called Secret Sister. Everyone who signs up gets assigned a "Little Sister" and a "Big Sister". All Little Sisters get sent 2 cards a month and some small gifts. This is my first card I sent her. She live in the USA so I sent her a bag of fantails and minties (she loves chewy lollies and none chewier than minties). Hope she likes this one.
