In stitches...

Hey guys!

I hope everyone is well  :)  I have been making the most of the two sunny days we've had here by spending some time in the garden and getting it ready to plant our veg!  That has eaten into my crafting time a little, but not too much.  I have made another card for the challenge over at The Paper Players this week;

This card is on it's way to a friend of mine who I haven't seen in an unacceptably long while!  :(  I really must make an effort to go and visit her :)  In the meantime, I hope she likes her birthday card;

Like me, my friend is not a 'girly girl', therefore I have made her a more graphic card with just a hint of 'girlyness' in the lilac sentiment and a few purple pearls :)

This card may have been a little labour intensive, but it was really satisfying!  I can see some more of these being made in different colours :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)

Card:     Paper Mill Direct - White, Black
Stamps: Verve - Hope Blooms
Ink:        VersaColor - Violet
Other:    Spellbinders - Classic Circles (as templates); Papermania - Clear e/p; Thread - black, white,
              pewter; pearls
