Ruffles Spring Basket

Sorry I have been absent again - I have been looking at crafty blogs but just not up to blogging myself for a bit.  The home situation is not as I would wish, and I have my bad moments.  I am so thankful to Jason and his girlfriend for keeping me company on Mother's Day, and to my son Mat for sending the big box of chocs!  I also have a little star Magnolia to plant, maybe one day it will be as big and beautiful as the one they gave me 20 years ago that I left behind when I moved here.  It should be flowering right now and will I am sure be amazing.

I managed to colour some images last Friday/Saturday and make up cards for my DT commitments this week, well most of them any way - I still have one to go.  This cute card is an extra from bits and pieces that were left on the table from previous makes and the little pup image is a Helz Cuppleditch stamp for Stampavie that I've had for several years.  I've coloured with my Copic pens but left off a sentiment so that I could used the card for any occasion .. .. just stamping 'With Best Wishes' inside.

The base is a 4" square cream card and the papers are from the Spring Chic pack matted with SU! Baja Breeze card.  I've used little leaf and flower punches to decorate along with the pink pearls, and that's about it.

Just one challenge to link up with my card, at Totally Papercrafts it's a punch it theme.

  4. This is such a sweet card annie and lovely to see on of your older stamps coming out to play. Good to hear you had company on Mother's Day and I'm sure your pretty magnolia will grow and bloom well in the future.

    Sorry I haven't visited your blog in a while I've been really poorly and not had the energy to craft much or blog hop. Going to try and catch up with all I've missed on here.

    So sorry to hear of your problems, I often think of you. Will email you rather than put much on this public forum.

    Take care
