Couple of cards

I know, I know – it’s been a while. We had a particularly awful end to the school year as a pupil died while on a weekend break with his family. An event like that affects the whole community, and it was hard to deal with in such a limited time before school broke up. I’m beginning to relax a little, but my heart is still with the family.

We have a friend staying with us just now, and their brother has just had a promotion at work. DF asked me if I had a suitable card – nope, but I can make one !!

* image and sentiment is Elzybells

* paper is a freebie from a papercraft magazine

I also had to make a card for a friend who moved house last week – and I have to say, I’m kinda chuffed with this one. it’s nice and cheery – just what she needs as I think we’ve had our summer up here in Scotland. The rain is now pelting off the windows… !! 

* wee chipboard house is from Crafty Individuals, and is covered with a local property guide.

* heart is a Hero Arts

* paper-pieced tree was a magazine freebie – sorry !

That’s your lot just now, but we are now on the Summer holidays and I have plans for LOTS of cards !! (umm, and baking, and sewing, and there’s that holiday, oh, and getting ready for school….. !!!)

    Good to see you back. Keep going, you are doing some v.good deeds. My friends and colleagues loved your cards with which marked the end of our term. Jenny, a cardmaker herself was most complimentary. They liked that they are for tearfund,too.
