Thank You

First I want to thank you for your emails and comments of sympathy and hugs regarding the loss of my uncle Johnny. I really appreciate your kindness and I feel extremely lucky to have all of you thinking of me at this time.
I made a little trip over to Craft World today to deliver their new stamps. The girls really like them so fingers crossed they'll do well :-D I took back the Original Nikki that found it's way into my bag and onto my receipt the last time I was there and got some new (to me anyway) Basic Grey papers called Capella...it's really pretty. They're pretty smart at BG...they made the same design on three of the papers but each with different colours. They must know that I would have to have all three lol.
Here is another beautiful card from Gaynor that arrived yesterday using Teddy Bear Robyn. I like how Gaynor kept the bear white for a change.



So many layers....so much patience!!!
Do you remember this card? I wasn't too happy with it because I ran out of the Bo Bunny violet cs to mount Martini Nikki and used a turquoise instead.but I managed to order some from Hayley along with a few other things. I'm a lot happier with the colour change but felt it was still a bit boring. Seeing Ann and Gaynor use the Prima Flowers on their cards I thought I'd dust mine off and have a go and putting them on this card.

What do you think? Is it any better? I'm not going to hang on to it for much longer otherwise Karen will get it for her birthday next year!




I've had these flowers so long that even though they've been in a box I think they've faded slightly! Gaynor sent me some of these gorgeous metal daisy flowers with the cards and I think it really finishes off the flower along with the light amethyst Swarovski crystal.



I love this flower :-D
Hope you're having a good Saturday ... thanks for stopping by.
Catch ya later x

Woweee... both cards are fab , Gaynor is definitely talented.
I also love the Nikki card - that flower definitely finishes it off beautifully. The gem in the centre is exquisite.
Hope you are ok
