Hi there blog friends - thanks for the recent comments I have received, you certainly helped me along.  Anyway I am back now and I have a card which I think you all deserve.

Hubby finished off the pics for me but I was busy looking at your blogs and have just got around to putting it on here.  I loved this 6 x 6 pad as soon as I saw it on the show with Hels.  I'm not one for making spur of the moment cards - I procrastinate toooooo much.  However when this pad arrived I had a sudden urge to make a card and I even had half an idea in my head - yippee!

Here is the result -

A couple of close ups to follow

And finally - a sideways shot!

Ingredients :

6 x 6" Cardstock Pad - Canvas Corp.
Venetian Motif die
Creative Expressions Sentiment stamp
Antique Linen/Black Soot DI
Flowers from my stash

I really hope you like this one - especially the sentiment.   Thanks to all of you for stopping by, I am now back in the saddle - not that I can ride lol - and will be blogging whenever I can.

Big hugs to you all.



  1. Nice to have you back Sue. Fabulous card. Wonderful sentiment. Gorgeous papers. Love this die! The raffia threaded through as ribbon looks great. Love from Christien x

  2. Such a beautifully designed card Sue. I really love the way you have framed that special sentiment and I agree - those papers are gorgeous.

  3. This is absolutely lovely Sue. I adore the colour scheme and those bright cheerful flowers are the perfect accompaniment and bring the whole piece to life. This verse is a long time favourite of mine. Well chosen I think.
