Thank you for being my Friend

Hello my crafting friends, hope today finds you all safe and well, BIG HUGS to those who are not. I do appreciate you popping by today and I hope you like what you see. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to e-mail me.

I am pleased to say I am back after a rather hectic week, thankfully we were on half term so I did not have to go to work as well!!! Thank you all so very much for the lovely comments, I do appreciate them. The funeral went well, was quite a nice service and my friend is recovering in hospital although she is in quite a bit of pain but is staying strong, she is worried about becoming depressed as she is always on the go, never sits down, always active and now she cant move so she is worried she will never be the same again but things look positive, I have told her to keep the exercises up to get her leg moving lol! Her wonderful Daughter takes her mobile with her so we can have a 5 minute chat every night when she visits which has been lovely, I am hoping to visit her again in the next few weeks.
I would like to wish Ang a speedy recovery too, hope you are feeling better my friend.

I started todays card by using up a scrap piece of Spring Green card I had left over from another project, it was big enough to fold in half to make a small card. I also found a piece of White card that had been embossed so I added that as a second layer.

Using more Spring Green Card I die cut the Dainty Oval frame and cut the center piece out of White card to which I stamped my sentiment. 

Out of more White card I die cut the Elegant Laced Edger and Corner twice and attached these to the top of my card then attached the oval frame on top of these (The corners I trimmed and attached to the oval frame on each end).

I made a bow out of some floral ribbon and attached this in the bottom corner of the frame, on top I added two Camellia petals to make a flower, I added a sparkly gem in the center then placed this on top of the bow. Two beautiful stick pins made by were placed under the bow and there you have the finished card.

  4. Morning Jacquie, glad everything went well at the funeral, and also that your friend is recovering. It must be awful if you can't move easily when you've been so active, but hopefully she will recover soon. I had a lovely week my son and I took him back to Oxford on Thursday. So I've got my craft room back now so hopefully I can do something for my blog. Great card using scraps, and of course Wendy's pins are smashing. Janice xxx

  8. Hi Jacquie
    Breaking myself in to commenting again. So sorry to hear that your friend is in hospital. You have had a time of it recently.
    Love the freshness of the green. Adds a nice splash of colour and shows the intricacies of the die, making a super card.
    Thank you for all your good wishes.
