I made this card for my niece and used my current favourite colour combo of kraft and blue. The blue card stock is Centura Pearl so has a bit of a shimmer about it. I used a new cutting die that I bought after receiving a Christmas card using the same idea (obviously it said Merry Christmas and not thank you!) The ribbon and flower is from my stash and I've had them for so long I couldn't begin to think about where they came from. the die by the way is by Memory Box.
A few words about me...time for an update! I'm a married stay at home mum with 2 children and I'm the right side of 50 (not that there's anything wrong with the other side and God willing I'll find out soon enough!) . I've been making cards for around 10 years now. I started when my daughter began receiving invites to birthday parties when she started pre-school (she's in secondary school now!). My card making goes in phases - I either seem to be very productive or very unproductive! My favourite cards to make are Christmas ones and I love that I found a hobby that allows me to indulge in a little bit of Christmas every day. It's not unusual for me to play Christmas tunes on the hottest day of the year - I think after 13 years my neighbours are used to it!
