For a Sister

Back once again with a card I made for a friend's sister. It seems whenever someone sees a particular colour of card everyone wants the same.

I have been busy making 70th birthday cards for a few ladies who have friends reaching that magical age and once I get them photographed I will post them.  Another special card for someone's mother and yet again they have asked for the hexagonal shape in a box.  Just about finished that one so another to photograph when I can get some decent light.

We had glimpses of sun yesterday but did not last long.  We have been very lucky this winter, not much snow, hardly any frost, but plenty of rain but no flooding, even the winds have stayed on the west coast and not bother us much.  Fingers crossed for the snow to stay away.

Here is my card.

Sorry about the quality of the photograph but it seems impossible to catch the light

8x8 scalloped card
Spellbinder embossing folder and grand decorative circle die
Wild Orchid roses
Senitments from Kanban
Card and pearls from stash

Am engrossed in the curling just now, waiting to see if GB (Scottish girls) get the Bronze, have followed them all the way through, fingers crossed.

Take care out there.
