Thinking of you




Good day

This is a image from Joanna Sheen and has been on my table for a couple of weeks. I wanted to make a card for a friend that went to hospital. Unfortunately I am way too late, since she is already out and well on her way to recovery! I did finished it though. The sentiment is from Sizzix as well as the border dies.

Red & gold love



Good day

It is that time in the year where you are reminded of love, no matter where you go. In a sense it is such a good thing just to remind each other how important you are in my life.
My fun digi is from A Day for Daisies. The designer paper is from Claire Fontaine's paper touch and the gold foil paper from my stash. I used cord, ribbon and heart brads as embellishments to finish my card.
