Thinking of you

Hi there

Many thanks for popping by. I'm really sorry there's been a short delay in posting but I was laid low with a Winter flu bug and I was just too ill to post my weekly update. I'm glad to say that I'm fighting fit now so normal service has been resumed.

Life brings its occasional sorrows and misfortunes to us all, and in the last week I've had to make two cards to send to friends to let them know they are in our thoughts. I thought I would post pictures of both cards in case they inspire you should you find that you have to make your own 'Thinking Of You' cards.

I like this card as it appeals to my 'arts and crafty' side. I kept the colours quite muted but I wanted something pretty to cheer up our friend. The addition of a homemade bow (made simple by using my trusty bow-maker), some lace and MDF craft shapes are all in keeping with the theme. I sprayed the flowers with Perfect Pearls Mist to soften up their appearance and added Cosmic Shimmer in Golden Pearl to tie the layers together. The wording is made with the Die'sire Only words die.

The second card I made has alternative layers of pale lilac pearlescent and white card. The top layer of card is embossed and I cut out a matching frame for my words, wrapped some matching ribbon round the top three layers of card and made a double bow on my bow-maker. The butterflies just add a little bit of interest and I've added pearl drops on these  as well as on the message and within the embossed pattern. I hope this card will bring a smile to the face of my friend, who is having a tough time at the moment.  It's good to know our friends are thinking of us when life is being unkind, and a card is a great way to send that message of support.

Why not let me know which card you prefer, and why? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Bye for now - and I promise to post my next blog a bit sooner!
