Thanks so much!

Hello friends
Yes 'Thanks So Much' is the sentiment on this card - can you see it...!?
It wasn't till I uploaded the photo I realised my felt Spiral Blossom Three 
was obscuring the stamping!
The stamp is from a set called 'It's All in The Words' - a real variety of sentiments.
This is a further card created with the bonus papers from Cardmaking and Papercraft
magazine this month.  Again a simple design and inspired by a fellow Spellbinders® designer
Michelle - you can visit her blog here - she makes beautiful cards.
The elusive sentiment is stamped onto Fancy Framed Tags Two and the 
dotty background created with Graduated Dots M-Bossabilities folder. 

I will be back soon - hopefully with good news, we are turning a corner here...
that's what we keep telling ourselves :)

Take care friends.

Very pretty card Christine, and if you are turning the corner, that's the best news you could give us. It's hard to type with my fingers crossed.

Morning Christine, I missed yesterday's post as my Google wasn't playing ball all day yesterday, even took batteries out !! Thankfully it's working now. Your cards are beautiful and very springlike, love them. Let's hope the corner is turned quickly, poor Elliott, lets hope the medication kicks in very quickly. Sending you all huge hugs and lots of prayers.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning Christine,
Thank you for the pretty card, spring has sprung with that one!
More importantly, I'm keeping fingers crossed that the corner will soon be turned and that the road to recovery will start in earnest. My best wishes to Elliott!
When will you put us out of our misery with news from Mitchell's job?
Have a good day.

Morning Christine,
A very pretty card, summery and cheerful. I have the magazine and thought I would not use the papers, but you have made me look at them differently.
Keeping my fingers crossed that the the corner is not too long for Elliot, just a gentle curve would be good.
Take care.

Morning Christine,
Wow you did it again! You really make those free papers work! I have never used them as I don't like the paper they are printed on, but you really make them look amazing!

What a lovely, bright card Christine! I guess it's because I love pink but this definitely has the wow factor for me. I must look out the papers in the magazine and also learn how to download their freebies. Hugs to you all. Gemma xx

Hi Christine, Love the papers and the clarity and colour on this card. Hope Elliot's treatment for his diabetes soon takes effect and he will begin to feel much better.

Maggieann said...

Hello Christine,
Another beautiful card, I love it. Like Sandra I don't like the paper that these freebies are printed on ~ my way round this is to copy them onto card/paper to use, this way you keep the original to use again and it also makes it easier to use on your design. Hope things are getting better for Elliott. (((HUGS))) to you all xxx

Anita Braddock said...

Lovely card Christine, such pretty colours. Thanks for yesterday's tip regarding mounting lightweight papers onto card stock to give more body.

This card is adorable. I love all of the different odds and ends that went together to make this card. The flower is a bit big and it does kind of eat up the writing but other than that it is perfect.
