Card for a Friend....

Hi Everyone... thanks so much for your visits and a very warm welcome to the new crafters who have joined as followers of my blog.... always nice seeing new faces.  I am so pleased you found something of interest which made you join.  Rest assured, I will be visiting you soon...

I made this card for a very special friend of mine who has been sending me gifts well in advance of my birthday (which is on 2 August)...  Almost every day I am astounded at what the Mailman brings me... I am so appreciative that I decided to make this very pretty pink and green card.  I hope she'll like it!


I received a few new orders this week as well.... LOL  The regular guys at the PO tell me "Shew, but you have a lot of overseas friends"....  I nearly packed up laughing...  If they only know, some of them are from the Online Shops I visit..  New card candy arrived - pastel shades with white dots on them and also some in shades of ocean blues...  I just love them and have used some of the ones with the dots on for this card.  The Magnolia stamp is Tulip Wheelbarrow.  Also new is the MS Cherish Hearts punch from Dies to Die for. Just love it!


Thanks for popping by and leaving a comment.... much appreciated.  Enjoy the rest of your week, hugs Sharon x

Hello Sharon. How stunningly beautiful is this creation. Gorgeous papers and design, I love that new punch and your pretty ribbon co-ordinates so well with it. A beautiful colour combination, which shows off that gorgeous image perfectly. You always pay so much attention to detail, its amazing, as always. Happy crafting.

Hi Sharon! How are you sweetie? Browsed a bit through your blog and noticed your recent cards are girlie and fresh, all using pink. Adorable creations sweetie, this one is no exception. I really have a hard time using pink, I love the color, just that I never seem to get the right pinks...lol.
Love this wheelbarrow card, needs no Tilda, it is perfect the way it is. You've chosen a great shape and colors and all. Beautiful and classy, just a pleasure to look at.
Here it's hot and my kid wouldn't stay indoors, so we beat the parks and forests all day long. Look forward for his kindergarten in autumn:)
Hugs sweetie and have a beautiful end of the week!

Such a lovely, lovely card. This shows how versatile the Magnolia stamps can be. It doesn't always take a cute Tilda/Edwin to use these lovely stamps. You've done a marvy job, gal!
