"Friends and Flowers"

 Good Morning Blog friends, thank you for calling by yesterday and leaving all the good wishes for Hazel, they do help.   Hazel managed to send me a quick text last night.  I was rather snippy with John yesterday, he is so very understanding, thank goodness. 
John and I are off up to Aberdeen today, this is our Wedding Anniversary.  We were married in Aberdeen where I lived at the time.  We then moved to Dundee where we had bought a flat and John worked.   We live out in rural Perthshire now, approx 20 miles from Dundee and Perth so not too far to travel if we need shops.  Luckily I am not a shopper although I do like to have a look now and again.
Today`s card is one I made some time ago and actually sent into the Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine.
It is featured in this months edition.

Base card 8 x 8 from Joanna Sheen
Purple and Lilac card for matting
Piece of white card run through Spellbinders Paisley M-Bossing Folder
Lace threaded with ribbon
Flowers made using Spellbinder Bitty Blossom Die
Leaves using the Foliage Die
Tag and Sentiment set I got as a gift from my friend Elaine
The one thing I do like about this card is that little bit of Mirri, that spoils it for me, you live and learn.....

That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting I really do appreciate all your comments and of course those Good Wishes for Hazel
