Card for a Special Person

This card is a special one for my friend at my Cancer Hospital, she looks after me so well and I wanted to thank her for going beyond the call of duty to help me before she went on holiday.


Here's what you need to make this card:

  • Yellow cardstock

  • Silver mirri card which has been cuttlebugged with the "Stars" embossing folder

  • Yellow gingham background paper (freebie download)

  • Cat image relaxing in a life buoy (think that's what it's called, please correct me if I'm wrong!) coloured with Twinkling H20's

  • Crystal Stickles were added to the red stripes to make it more 'blingy' for a girl!

  • Sentiment is a handwritten message with the pink freebie pen, and matted and layered onto red mirri card (another scrap I used up!)

I hardly ever throw little pieces of card away, and find ways of using up even the oddest shape on my cards. Recycling is a good way of helping not only the environment, but also my pocket as 100% of the proceeds from my cards is given to the cancer charity/hospice. I just enjoy making the cards which keeps my little grey cells and my carpal tunnel addled hands moving!

Super - and reminds me of Summer. So where did Summer go :( Time to start knitting a Rico yarn scarf here - sure sign that I feel Winter is on the way when the knitting comes out! Di x
