At long last a card!!!

 Hi Everyone, At long last I have a few cards to show you, I made these a few weeks ago, but had not published them.

This card image is from Lilly of the Valley, just love the Lily of the Valley products, The background card and paper, swirls and sentiment are all from the latest Anna Griffin products. I had this piece of lace which I got when I was at the Harrogate Show a few years ago, the roses are from Wild  Orchid Crafts, the  little leaves are from a punch that I have had for a number of years.  I have decorated the inside of the card as simply as I could and because the person who received this cards will be getting married, I thought that adding something blue to her card so that she can use it on her wedding day. I have "rubbed" out the message and the persons name.

This card has been made from Anna Griffin's collections, following her instructions on her suggested design sheet, its nice to try these out, again I have "rubbed" out the message. I found this kit a delight, its for making quick cards and easy cards, I like to design and make my one off cards, but there are times that your mind has other things working on it and you just need a easy to make card. This card was received and put on display and is still on display and their wedding anniversary was a few weeks ago, this is the only card still on display... goes to show even easy home made cards go down a treat.

Thanks for stopping by, if you want to leave any  comments, it will be a pleasure to read them.

Take care and happy crafting everyone
