Pretty Little Card to say Hello

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? We had quite a busy day on Saturday lots of things got done. Then on Sunday we had a very lazy day. It is big week for us this week. On Friday it is my husband's birthday. Before that he is going to apply for voluntary severance. The scheme has just been announced at his work. He is quite close to retirement age so it is worth trying for.   

Last week I had a few scraps left over from making other cards so I decided to put them together. 


Even the card blank was left over from cutting another card blank. The idea started with the small green and yellow rectangles that I found in my bits bag. The patterned paper was leftover from when I made some cards for Quick Cards Made Easy magazine. 


I made the daisies with the Tatty Daisy die from the John Next Door range. These two were left over from another project. The centres were coloured with Distress Ink. The leaves were cut with the Star Flower Leaves dies from John Next Door. 


The bee was also left over from another project. I do like bees. 


There you have it a cute little card. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Have a good week

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Lovely card Jackie. I think it is nice to sometimes send a card that just says Hello especially as a lot of people we cannot see. Just so they don’t feel forgotten. Take care
