Last Minute Larry!...


Here I am again, 'Last Minute Larry', with an entry for CAS(E) This Sketch!!

Another super awesome, super versatile sketch...I could've done so much with this, if only I had the time!!  I think I'm going to have to give up this working malarky...it gets in the way of my crafting ;)  He he!

My card was another Mother's Day card for my friend's Mum, apparently she really liked it so that's always a bonus!

I have to say, I have never met the recipient of this card and as my friend is a boy, he was useless when it came to finding out what his Mum likes - colours, style, whether she is a floral person...nothing!  So I kinda had to wing it and make something that was pretty generic but hopefully suitable for a Mother :)  

I thought about adding pearls, but as I don't know whether she's a girly-girl or not I thought it best to refrain...although now I kinda wish I'd added a little bling!

Here's the sketch...

This sketch reminds me of Christmas, I may keep it for some inspiration for my Christmas cards this year :)

I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of you for all the support you continue to give me even though my posting has become a little intermittent and my commenting has been all but non-existent!  It really means a lot to me to know that you're all still in my corner even though I haven't been around to show my appreciation for you all :)  I am a very lucky girl :)

Thanks so much for stopping by ;)

  1. Your card is lovely, Sian; no blings, required whatsoever! The colours of the background are the perfect canvas for those stunning flowers. You have the knack of transforming 'simple' to 'stunning' which is what I see here! The mom this is going to will love it, as do I! Yep, work malarky does interfere with crafting time. Lottery win required! You, my friend, post and comment whenever you can, because we'll be here to cheer and applaud your dazzling delights - cards and posts (you are SUCH a gifted writer!!) - no matter when they appear. You're just toooo much fun!! Hugs~c
