Just For You ....

Hi everyone,

Firstly a warm welcome to my new followers  ~ how exciting.  I hope you are all well and not being affected by these dreadful floods ~ we have had our usual 'lake' outside the gates, but have managed to stay dry indoors.  DH reported that on the way home on the train last night they were going VERY slowly as you couldn't see the tracks or rails for water ~ scarey stuff!

Today I have a card that I made for a friend who has not been well for a while, she has been in and out of hospital and I just wanted to try and cheer her up a little without overtly saying 'Get well'.

As it was around Remembrance Day that I made and sent it I thought this Memory Box die was very apt.

Also, I have uncovered some gorgeous linen cardstock that I didn't realise I had which has given this card just the right texture.


Image: Memory Box 'Prim Poppy' Die
Colouring Medium: Copics
Sentiment: Waltzing Mouse Stamps 'Say It With Style'
Cardstock: Linen textured cardstock ~ sorry I have no idea where this came from!
Pearls from stash

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments.
