That Friday Feeling...

Happy Friday,

 More striplet I'm afraid.  This card started out as a general sentiment card however last Saturday a friend rang desperate for a mothers Day Card.  Therefore I grabbed this one and added a tag, to hide the original sentiment, and stamped it quickly with Mothers Day and a few flowers.

I may have mentioned before that most of my cards are in box's here in my craft room so changing one is an option I use quite frequently!  As I work in a card and Gift shop selling commercially available cards it's not really fair that I set up selling my hand made cards locally!  That said if a friend asks I will always see what I can do! lol

This is a simple talk A4, PMD cardstock, fold card in cream with the striplet cut down the left hand side in 2 parts leaving room for the sentiment.  The bow and flowers were from a card I made a couple of weeks ago and had removed to show what it looked like naked (i.e. without the bow) as I hate waste I re-used it.

 This second picture shows the altered card with Tag and the box I quickly made early Sunday morning to hold it!

I love the simplicity of this one, hope you all do too....

  6. Hi John,
    well you are certainly getting your monies worth out of this fab die.
    I do love all the wonderful versatility of the use of this. When purchasing a die I nearly always look for more ways than one to use it, but sometimes my heart rules my head. lol
    Another beautiful card again today. Loving the cream and blue.
