Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

April 21, 2021

Thanks ...

Hi Everybody,

This week I have had to visit the doctor again because it I have an infection in my surgery wound. 

Don't ask me how this has happened coz I have no idea all I know is that it is very hot, red and painful

I have started on antibiotics to see if that helps and fingers crossed everything will be ok in a week or so.

So this card is to say thank you for all your kind wishes and lovely messages and the many cards that you have sent to me.

The card shown has been created with the 5x7 Card and Box die set and I have used a really old stamp from Indigo Blu stamped onto a white panel. 

I have then embossed it in CMM flourish folder and added it to the card front. The "Thanks" die is another older one from Spellbinders.

The roses are from the Layered Roses Die Set and the leaves are a mixture from several sets to add variation. I have added some sequins dotted around the card for sparkle.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
