A Kind Word


As soon as I saw the 'Kindness' challenge at CASology I knew I had the perfect sentiment stamp for this. It is from the Verve called 'New Beginnings'

I apologise for the photo but it is so dull here in London, this was the best I could do after many attempts!

It was fun to make a bright Spring card after all the Winter cards!

The flower stamp and die is also from Verve called 'Bloom Brighter'.

I used some scrap water coloured card I had made a while ago and just die cut it using my new Fishtail dies from My Favourite Things.

I know this card looks really simple and you would have thought it took me just a few minutes to make. Oh no...I couldn't get anything to go right-the design, the colours and we won't even go to the trouble of how to place the enamel dots. I can't believe I actually persevered and finished it, not like me really. Still in the end I like the fresh and sunny feel to this card.

I hope you all have a good day x

I will enter this into:

  9. Simply stunning card, Sandie. So very bright and cheerful. I'm glad you stuck with it. Sometimes for me, the simplest cards take the longest to make. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
