A great welcome to everyone who takes a few minutes to visit my blog, and hope you will return. I started off scrapbooking, but making cards soon overtook and I really enjoy seeing the end results. I enjoy blog hopping to see the wonderful creations from other crafters, there really are some talented, friendly people out there.

Stylish Rose

My second card I made for an elderly neighbour who lived next door and moved 2 years ago into warden controlled accommodation locally.  I still keep in touch with her and try to go and see her at least christmas and birthdays.  She's a lovely lady and very kind and thoughtful, and loves flowers and decoupage cards.

I stamped onto white cardstock using Artemio swirl stamps I bought from QVC, they give a lovely impression, I used black Versafine detail stamp. A yellow decoupage rose in the centre, some yellow organza ribbon, mounted onto black card and again onto silver card at an angle, and stuck onto a yellow square 6" card.  Finished off with a couple of small roses in the corner and a card craft birthday wishes.
Makes us think of summer...
