Cream in their coffee ..

THANK YOU! to the girls at Play Date Cafe ... my card Here made the "Cream in Our Coffee" this week ... I am honoured ...

Today I have been busy making a set of cards for my Aunt ... she struggles to get out now and standing in queues in shops is just to difficult ... and since we have had so many Post Offices closed down ... the queues are so bad in the last remaining ones ... so a few times a year I like to send a set of cards with envelopes and stamps ... all ready for her to use ... she can at least get to the post box ... as long as they don't move them too! 
I try to stick to a colour and style that will suit most occasions and chose to use some MF paper from the fabulous kit Kirsty sent me ... along with some 'dottie' Tim Holtz paper ...


The box is made from heavy cardstock, and she can reuse this when the cards have all gone  ... the Wisp stamp is a digital from Pink Petticoat, which I love and have used many times ... I added "stickles" randomly just to give a bit of sparkle ... 


The border stamp you can see on the box is also digital from my Print Shop program
 ... love those little birdies ...



I kept the cards pretty CAS and flat for posting ....


Some in white CS and some in pearlescent blue


So they will get mailed tomorrow ... 

Well, that's it for today ... my Thursday club starts tonight and I am looking forward to the evening crafting and catching up with my sweet happy group ... We have snow forecast for tomorrow again!

Till soon my dear friends ... keep safe
