Make A Wish

Hello from a bright and frosty morning here in my part of the UK...



It's no secret that I have always loved these flower stamps from Clearly Besotted so when I saw that SSS had the matching die in their sale for 99cents I got in there quick!
The postage to the UK is expensive but it gave me the opportunity to order a few other things I wanted too so it all balanced out.


All the colouring is done with Copics and then I smothered the flowers in Mod Podge dimensional gloss


 I made this for a friend of mine who is now in her late 80's and celebrates another birthday in a few days... She's had a few strokes and truthfully, I don't know if she even remembers me that well anymore... Her amazing husband looks after her so well and he's 96!


On another note, I got to go to Thursday Club last night and boy it was busy! They were all thrilled to see me as I was to see them too... I'm exhausted today Lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by - Have a lovely day

What a truly wonderful card! I love the strong colors. Good to hear you went to Thursday Club - that must mean both that you're feeling better and that it gave you an additional boost!

Beautiful CAS design, Ros. Such pretty coloring on the flowers and the red makes them pop.

Oh, Ros, your flowers are so beautiful! Richly colored and the die cuts them perfectly. What a deal!! Love the gloss and your card design with the flowers tucked in like that. I'm waiting for an order from SSS. It's been five days and no shipping notice yet. Maybe they don't send a shipping notice? It's not as if I don't have anything to stamp in the meantime, tee hee.
