Sparkle

Good morning.  It is so cold at the moment, which is exactly what the weather forecast said and how right they are. It was -3 degrees until lunchtime yesterday with little snow flurries then warmed up slightly.  But it's lovely to see the snowdrops appearing everywhere.

My Card


Recipe
7" square card - made from Hobbycraft card stock
lavender pearlescent - Hunkydory Adorable Scorable
teal glitter card - Hobbycraft
image - Hunkydory "Quotes & Wisdom" little book
Fancy Stitched edges die -  Die'sire Crafters Companion
ribbon, feathers, gems - from stash

One of the ladies who attends our WI Craft and Laugh group has seemed a bit low of late and so I decided to make her this card hoping to cheer her up.  She actually burst into tears when I gave it to her but was really so thankful that somebody had noticed and cared enough to do something. It just shows that such a small gesture can have such a huge impact.

Some years ago I made a lot of art deco cards because I just love the images of these ladies in their beautiful gowns.  I think I would have loved to live in this era. When I saw this image in the Hunkydory Little Book I just had to use it.

Well that's it for today.  Hope you are all well and for those feeling a bit under the weather then  I hope you are soon back to top form.

Take care.

  10. Hi Christine
    A very classy and chic card and what a lovely gesture for your friend.
    Often, its the little things and not the grand gestures that touch us more.
    Keep warm and well.
