handpicked just for you

i am showing a birthday card i have made for my aunt in the USA ( a GI bride) ~just loving these new stamps!!
used the fab sketch over on:~





365 CARDS~DAY 143 ~ HEATWAVE (inspiration from card on challenge ~even in a heatwave you may need your wellies and sun hat!!)


used crafty individuals paper, adorables various stamps, coloured with promarkers, nestabilities rectangle dies, sizzix corner die,quickutz leaf die, doodlebug flower paper frills, card candy~flowers from my stash and finished with glitter.

...just to say my heart and thoughts are with everyone in Norway today..... i`m so glad to hear my young nephew ~maki~is safe (visiting his mum for the summer in Norway)..and also friends i have there too!!~as many of you may know my brother lived in Norway for over 15 years most of that time in Oslo..such a shock. such a beautiful country and friendly people... what more can i say???

Nessy I always love seeing your creations but I have to say that this one absolutely took my breath away. It is truly beautiful - from the pretty colors and papers you chose to the wonderful image panel and how you created the scene there. I also love the added touches like the corner brackets. All of it is just perfect. This is one of your best creations ever. Gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing at Sweet Sketch Wednesday week after week sharing your wonderful talent with us.
