Wishing You Luck and Love in All You Do


Good morning ... just a very quick post from me as I have just realised one of the challenges that I particularly wanted to enter with this card (Cheery Lynn) closes in 2 hours ... so please excuse the terrible articially-lit picture - I'll post some decent photographs tomorrow!!

Edited: updated to add daylight pics :-)

This card is for a friend of mine who has taken volunatary redundancy from her job ... I thought the sentiment was perfect for this rather specific occasion!!  I also got lucky 'cos I was looking for some paper heather for this and for another card ... and my local craft shop Edwin Allen had a single sprig in their tray (it should have been a bunch) ... when I asked if they had any more the lady retrieved a couple more sprigs from sample cards in the shop and let me have them for free - so that's my recycled element!!


Stamps: LotV "Fairies - On Tiptoe" and "Everyday Grungy messages";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: LotV "Promises";
Supplies: flowers mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts, except purple cherry blossom from Hobbycraft and purple heather which was a freebie from my local craft shop Edwin Allen :-); ribbon from Hobbycraft; lace from John Lewis; pearls and button from The Hobby House ; wooden butterfly from my stash;
Tools: small, large and classic scalloped circle nestabilities; Cheery Lynn "lace corner deco B" die.

Challenges:
Dream Valley #55 - Things With Wings
MAWTT - Fantasy & Fairies
Joanna Sheen - Recycle  (heather)
Crafty Boots - Recycle
Southern Girls - Button Up
ABC - L is for Lovely Lace
Cheery Lynn #76 - Pretty In Purple
