Crafty Friends!

Hi All

I met a crafty friend from Austria on holiday on the beach in Greece-we are everywhere!
Her craft is making things from shells and pebbles. She got me collecting pebbles so she could make me a necklace. And yesterday she emailed me to say it was on its way.

I haven't crafted for ages but so wanted to make her a card so I can send it to her when my necklace arrives-I will share a picture of my necklace when I have it.

Here is her card:

The background is an embossed panel given to me by another crafty buddy Joyce. The deep purple is water coloured and the sentiment is heat embossed onto the panel. This stamp is from Penny and Black and was a presssie a long time ago from yet another craft buddy Sarah G (who now runs her own stamp and stencil company-take a look here)

So my design but helped along by pressies from crafting friends and off to a crafting friend met on the beech!!

Have a fun day and I will enter this into:
