love and kindness

Love and Kindness

This is a card I made for a dear friend who really 
helped me out in my hour of need. 
Her help will be always appreciated - thank you Anne xxx

I used card and a topper by Kanban and a Martha Stewart
border punch

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside...

I love this old photo of my husband's family when they were growing up. It was taken in Bridlington, Yorkshire and shows an era when we still had summers in England!!! I love how I managed (by chance) to find a paper that matched the wind breaker almost perfectly. The bucket and spade were cut from the Cricut "Life's a Beach" cartridge and shaded using Promarkers. I cut out the bunting using a steel die (sorry, don't know which brand) on white card and coloured it in with Promarkers too.

Stampin' Up

Wow, It's been a while...

but I have been playing and creating a little. Its been an eventful summer with lots of highs and lows. I have done some traveling to Ireland (twice) and to Iceland and Norway which was spectacular and had some well needed R & R. Unfortunately, the lows were very low and saw the passing of my mum at the ripe old age of 84. I have also had some minor health issues due to stress ( go figure!). 

Over the summer I had the opportunity to create some wonderful scrapbook pages with the inspiration offered by a great friend who has recently signed up as a Stampin' Up demonstrator. At the party I hosted last week I made this cute card, ready to go in my "I need a card now!" stash.
 Hope you like it.
