Love You

Hello my blogging friends . Hope that you are finding lots of time for crafting . The weekend is well on the way . Is that family time for you?
I would like to make a mention tonight , of a friend of mine, Sandy.  . Sandy has just opened her blog recently to chat and share some of her creations . I encourage you to visit when you have a moment as Sandy shows off her  papercraft skills .
Todays card from me was inspired by a surprise snail mail delivery .  This card came for me today , thank you Jane .The background music and flowers embellishing is beautiful.
I just loved the butterfly .

The element that inspired me was the decorated  partial diecut  as background .
Now my card looks nothing like Jane's , but I did add a half a  topnote .
It's a top fold card of green .
                                                          Card and dsp from SU
                                                         Sentiment , Well Scripted , SU.
                                                         Bow image from Lucy's Stamps .
I punched a 1 3/4" circle from Rose Red  for the sentiment . I created faux stitching in white gell pen around edge of circle then adhered it with foam tape .
The bow was slightly curled before adding with foam tape  as well.
Hope you like it.
Catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne.

The card from Jane is beautiful, I love the technique she has used on the top note die cut. looks really effective.

Your card is wonderful, I just love that DP and the bow is a great touch. Does the flap lift up to open the card?

Hi Shirley-Anne,

Jane's card is so lovely and your card is pretty, pretty, pretty! Love the pink and I am really impressed with the bag like look on the top. The bow fits in perfectly and I adore the paper. It seems as though one could open the bow and something would come out of this bag... wonderful creation!

Now I am off to Sandy's blog.

Hugs and happy weekending,
