Thank You

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I'd like to start by giving a very warm welcome to both Meg and April who have recently joined me.  They both do lovely work so do pop in and say hello.

My card today was for a friend who last week dropped by with a delicious cake she'd made for us.  It wasn't for any special occasion she said it was 'just because'.  What a lovely thing to do.

I wanted to make a card quickly and this is it.

Using Peacock feathers and Stormy sky distress inks on my craft mat I spritzed with water and iped up with white card.

The birds came with a magazine and I embossed them in gold then made holes round the edge.  After stamping the sentiment and adding the hearts something was needed at the bottom so I stamped with a small corner foam stamp that lays on my desk, at hand, all the time.  Although it's small it's very useful.

I'm taking this over to The Snippets Playground where Eve is on duty this week while Di has a little rest.

I absolutely love your background with the birds! A wonderful card for your wonderful friend (how kind of her to make you a cake just because)!

Karen Petitt said...

Love this! The Peacock Feather is one of my favourite colours and I've not played with it for a while so must dig it out. Love those birds too and how lovely to have a friend to pop in and give a baked cake just because - there are not many peeps like that any more Karen x

April Cheetham said...

Such a stunning card, Barb! I love the beautiful inky background and the lovely birds. The cake sounds pretty fab too! Xx
