Cute card for Louise
As I'm sure you can tell from the sudden glut of cards, I have been ignoring the housework, huzza! This one is a bit special, because my daughter's friend Louise has a new job and is finding it a steep learning curve.
The sketch is a nice one from Anyone for Anya? though I didn't make the blue middle layer quite big enough!
Louise loves cute, and pink, and flowers, so I had fun with all the elements! I'm also going to enter it for Cute Card Thursday whose theme is 'Text.' Well, the hugs message (it's a Penny Black clear stamp) is small but important, meant to cheer Louise up!
The Anya stamp is 'Summer' from The Greeting Farm's 'Roll Call' set which I got from Quixotic Paperie I love how she's giggling with her hand in front of her mouth - so cute! I distressed and stickled the edges. The gorgeous paper is Papermania's 'Honey and Hugs'.
Oh, by the way, the PB Mouse and Stocking stamp I used the other day is 'Xmas Mouse' no 4010H
I have to make the Manor presentable for the weekend, so today I shall mostly be changing sheets and tidying bedrooms, chiz, but at least the sun is shining!
Have a good day, goodpeople, and an exciting weekend!
Thanks for looking, luv, Mags x
