Quick card



Hi there ...
I hope you all had a lovely weekend ... and a good start to the week ...
Normally I would be at Pilates on Monday mornings but I haven't been for ages due to my foot problem ... which is no better ... But I caught up with my Pilates buddies for lunch today ... My friend Joyce has a birthday on Wednesday so that was the excuse to meet up ... I can't show you her card yet ... (it's also for one of my DT projects) ... but it suddenly dawned on me that her wedding anniversary is the very same day as her birthday so I had to make a quick card last night ... Thank goodness for my Silhouette! 
This came together quite quickly


The card was cut on the Silhouette ... a burst of hearts ... all I needed to do was add some backing paper and embellish it ... Her favourite colour is blue so I used Eline's Huis paper ... one of the last pieces of a pad sent to me last year by my sweet friend Stella ... and then some ribbon and lots of liquid pearls


The stamp is from one of my favourite sets by WaltzingMouse
I know the pin looks a little dangerous ... but don't worry ... I always add an end to them ... I find those little earring backs work perfectly and the pin can then be taken off the card and used.

That's all for today ... 
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments ... I'll be back tomorrow for the new challenge at CCCB  ... I hope you can join me ...

Have a lovely day

~ Ros ~

Just so pretty, Ros. And doesn't that paper look gorgeous peeping through those scattered hearts? A really beautiful design, too:)

Sweetie I hope that you will be on the mend soon; it's awful to have so much pain. And to be stuck and depending on others because your foot is bothering you ( to put it mildly..)

Your card; elegant and romantic. I know you made it with a little help from your Silhouette :) But it;s you who puts it all together in such a beautful way.
Your friend will love it!
Take care...

You have been making some amazing cards with that little machine of yours. :-) Those heart cuts are so sweet and delicate and putting that beautiful floral paper behind them just makes them more so. Absolutely lovely Ros! Hugs!
