'Sending Love & Hugs' and 'Thanks For Being Such a Wonderful Friend'

I made this card to support a wonderful cause then missed the deadline. So annoyed with myself.

Will share anyway and try to keep track a bit better next time. This wonderful stamp and die set are from Pink Fresh and I love the die cut as well as the stamps.

I need to work on my die cutting skills with this one but will get there. After colouring the flowers in all different pink and the leaves in greys I also did a die cut in pink fun foam.

The sentiment Sending love & hugs also has a die and both sentiments come with the floral stamp.
I love how it turned out and finished it off with some sparkly clear gems.

This card is made using a leaf stencil. I used white texture paste and added small amounts of colour in lemon, orange and red to the paste then spread it on the stencil. As I smeared it back and forward it mixed the colours a bit and the orange looks the strongest though that was a red I used.

I trimmed the panel down slightly then added to a card base. I decided to use gold washi tape each side for contrast then finished off with the 'Thanks' die cut in gold mirror card and the background layer cut in vellum and one wooden leaf. This is for a friend and just to let her know she is very appreciated.

For those of you who don't go to Instagram or Facebook I would like to share the news that my latest grandchild has been born to my youngest child.

Koby Aaron was born the 19th at10:11pm weighting 6lb 7oz.
Here he is with his proud mum and dad and Aunty Elysha who is also
Aaron's twin.

Such a wonderful point in our lives and a truly lifting time in
a year of so much sadness. 

Ready to go home.
