"Birthday Wish"

Hello Blog Friends, only 6 mores sleeps.  
Thank you for calling today, I really appreciate it.
 As I said yesterday, I am not doing a lot of crafting.   I had a phone call from a neighbour asking if I was too busy to make a card for her.  Her friend would be coming later today and there was no way she could get a card.  She had had a card but made a mess of writing it, she sounded so anxious on the phone.  Well what can you do!!!  when you have no bus service and are 3 miles in either direction to the nearest shop.  Then of course as you can imagine there is a very limited choice of cards.

Here is my quick card.

Base Pink card stock approx 5 x 7 
Border punched using a Martha Stewart Punch
Doily cut using a Cheery Lynn Die
Spellbinder Blossom four Die for the flower
Crealies Die for the leaves
Pink American Seam Binding tied in a quadruple bow 
Butterfly charm
Computer generated sentiment
Made a Box for the card and all delivered

That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting

    I hope you have a good day

    Love the colours you have worked with too.

    Love Jules xx

  11. Patricia you have WOWED us again with another stunning your colours


  12. Absolutely fabulous card Patricia. Your neighbour must have been thrilled. You know the area you live is exactly like mine, and we too have no bus service and three mile is either directon to a village with a shop. But I still love it here!!

    By the way, the non dairy condensed milk is made! Yippee! Quite a faff but I think it will be worth it when John gets his first chocolates in three years. I let you know how they turn out. Christine x

  13. Absolutely beautiful Patricia, especially for a quick card! I'm sure that your neighbour was very pleased!x

  14. Hi Patricia,
    A really beautiful card, your neighbour must have been so happy when you turned up with this, stunning.
    Sorry I did not comment this morning, started to, then I got into a flap as I didn't realise it was later than I thought, lol.
    Have a good sleep, see you tomorrow.
