You're Wonderful!.. White Thank You Card

Image
Hello everyone!
I had a lovely surprise last weekend! A very sweet lady sent me a pad of embossed Cardstock and frames she had after seeing my white on white cards and realising I don't own any embossing tools but I do love all white cards! 
How kind was that!! And such a lovely surprise! I was so excited (I love presents!) that I had to get snipping into them straight away and make her a thank you card, and no other sentiment would do:



I used:
LOTV Scroll Sentiment Stamp Craftwork Cards - Embossed Cardstock & Frames Pad White Seam binding ribbon - Ribbon Girl Heart Doily - Live & Love Crafts Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch Gems & Made with Love Charm - Hobbycraft



I used the outside of the largest butterfly frame and trimmed down the 2 sides (it's an 8" pad) to make nice side borders on the card
Isn't the Cardstock pretty! Can't wait to use more :-)

Hope you've had a nice week and staying safe on Friday the 13th!!!! Teehee

Happy Love Day Owl Card

Image
Hello!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my last cards! I lack confidence in my cards a lot, especially as there are so many amazing and professional Cardmakers on here! It's easy to feel a bit out of my depth! 
I really wasn't sure on my last card and nearly didn't blog it!
I try to remind myself of how well I do considering how severely ill I am and the conditions I work under! I don't think people realise quite how poorly I am and how much I suffer and struggle with the tinyest tasks each day so should be pretty proud with what I've achieved on here in the last 8 months!
Anyway sorry for rambling on! Lol

This card I've made to give my mum on Valentine's day :-)



I asked her what she likes on Valentine's cards and she text back a one word answer - "owls" lol

I used:
Owl stamp - mag freebie Promarkers Fancy pants love story paper and sentiment Spot paper behind the owl is LOTV Hobbycraft ric rac and heart punch



I keep finding little red hearts e…

Red Rose Valentine Card

Image
Hello! Hope you've had a nice week!
I made this card earlier this week and really wasn't sure about it, I do struggle with CAS!
Not sure if the scalloped border is too much or not?
I'm quite pleased with the hearts though, they were quite hard to get into a perfect heart shape lol



Heart punch and gems - Hobbycraft Sentiment stamp - LOTV  Rose & ribbon from my stash



Thanks for looking and hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you're up to!
