Simply Thanks So Much!

My card today is for two challenges

First, is Clean and Simple with this sketch (# 251),

and then these colours are from

This is it


I cut some pink card with fancy scissors and laid it at the top of a white base. The stamped sentiment was positioned on 3D pads, and topped with the green frame, pink flowers and grey butterfly. I added some gems to the flower centre, and pearls to the butterfly body.

I've made it for my friend, Pat, whose 70th birthday was last Friday, and we all went out for lunch on Sunday as her treat, and Barrie her husband treated me as well!!, so I thought I'd say Thanks with this card.

Supplies :
Card = Melon Mambo, Whisper White, white base and grey card FMS
Stamps = Everything Eleanor, Papillon Potpourri, and 
Inks = Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Basic Grey
Tools = Fiskars Scissors and Elegant Butterfly Punch
Extras = 3D Pads, Gems and Pearls

I've not been too good after my treatment last week, and my mojo seems to have left me again. I went to my friend, Jacqueline's house, this morning to craft, but it took me several hours to come up with this CAS card. I really struggled, while she and Louise made loads of things. Fingers crossed that my creativity returns soon.

My friend Pat, is crazy for anything that is Scottie Dog related, so I made her this tissue box and matching  pop-up card for her birthday, which she said she really loved

The inside has the large dog from the sides of the box, and the little dog from the top of the box and card front, wearing a little pink bow.

I'm off to lie down now, as I've spent 3 hours doing the gardening since I got home, and my joints are screaming with pain. Thanks for dropping by, and I hopem to see you soon
