Sending Extra Love Your Way

Once again I must unfortunately start this post with an apology for my lack of blogging. Winter has not been kind to my family the last two years, as someone seems to be constantly sick, and the loving family we are, we love to share! Hopefully I can get a good run on blogging again in the next few weeks, before the school holidays are upon us and the kidlets are at home.

The new catalogue is out, it started yesterday! Very exciting. Have you had a chance to have a look? So many beautiful goodies! If you would like to purchase a catalogue please contact me and I will arrange to send one to you. It is a gorgeous catalogue filled with gorgeous products!

My fave stamp set at the moment is Delicate Doilies! Get ready for doily overload, I have already made many a card with this set.

This first card I made last night for a very dear friend who lost a special person in her life. I wanted her to know that she was in my thoughts and in my heart. I'm not sure if she reads my blog, but if she does, she should hopefully have received this card by the time she reads this post. If you are reading, big hugs my special friend! xx

Not only do I love the Delicate Doilies stamp set, but also the matching Flirtatious Speciality DSP. The sheet I chose to use on this card co-ordinates with Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo (got to love it!) and Whisper White. The DSP pack has two sheets of gorgeous die cut Doily sheets. One in Melon Mambo and one in Pumpkin Pie. Loooove them!

Now finally a look at the card!

I started with a base of Pretty in Pink and layered a strip of Melon Mambo and a strip of the DSP. I used the new Perfect Pennants Big Shot Die (so much new big shot goodness!) to cut a white doily to put under the Melon Mambo die cut doily from the DSP. I did this so the Melon Mambo doily would stand out more and not get lost in the DSP. I stamped my sentiment (non SU!) in Melon Mambo on Whisper White card stock  and punched it out using the decorative label punch.

I then layered these and added some Whisper White Satin Ribbon, a Rhinestone Brad, some flowers and trinket pins. I decorated the inside simply as I wanted plenty of room to write. I stamped a sentiment from Occasional Quotes (retired hostess set) and used Versamark to lightly stamp some doilies in the corner. These are difficult to see in the photos.

If you have any questions about this card or the new catalogue, please feel free to contact me.

Also please leave some comment love, it always brightens my day to read your comments, and to know that someone has taken the time to reach out to others. Something I try to make sure I do, but have been a little slack of late!
