A Quick card

My Postie Ann losted her Mother 3 weeks ago and now her Dad has gone into hospital to have his leg I thought a bright cheerful card might give her a lift....and this Humphrey stamp seemed to fit the bill...the BP are from the cd and the die cuts are the Fleur de Lis spellbinders....

it's Wimbledon so I am sitting and watching for 2 weeks....eating cakes and crisps and lots of lovely Richard cooks tea for 2 weeks and I don't do much crafting except when a card is needed!!!!
I love the way these shelf cards turn out and they have real mantelpiece impact when they go up....only trouble is having to explain there workings as you have to fold all the tabs away for posting LOL

sympathy cards

always difficult cards to make.....but I know how much a personal card means at such time so they are always worth the time and effort.

This is another card using the Joanna Sheen pressed flower stamps, I wanted a vintage look for a friend who sings in a choir...the backing paper is made from one of my husbands 1920 music copied and then distressed with tea die....the sentiment I did on the computer....having a lovely crafty day.....
