Thank You

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your weekend going? I had a lovely day yesterday with my daughter. We popped out to the shops and found a shoe shop closing down sale and I even managed to get some craft bits in the Range. It was so nice being together and chatting. My husband enjoyed the Stag do and his team managed to get out of the Escape room in the time allowed.

When you have a birthday you need to make thank you cards. This is the one I made for our daughter and her fiance,  it is made from an old card.


I started with the old card I liked the big thank you so much. I made the background with a mix of Pixie Powders. All the mats and layers were cut with the Double Pierced Squares and Rectangle dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. 


This thank you is just so glorious and shiny. 


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Cor this really is a lovely card and that background is amazing - I usually end up with a mucky puddle whenever I've tried this. I just cannot do a less is more and either spray or splodge (powders) on like there's no tomorrow - lol! I must have another go now I've seen yours! Lots of hugs to you Sue Pxxx
