"Pearls card for this week"

Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  Great to have you here I love that you come and visit to see what I have been up to.
Another beautiful day here again even though it was bitterly cold in the morning.  By afternoon it definitely felt like spring.  Went to Perth this morning the journey was so beautiful looking towards the hills that are still "THICKLY" covered in snow.   The snowdrops are every where, the birds are singing........its a wonderful life.

My regular visitors know about my friend Pearl who has been out of her house since it flooded very badly the Friday before Christmas.  I send or give Pearl a card every week just to let her know I am thinking about her.  A few I have not posted as they were cards I had already made and posted here before.
Here is today`s card a new one I did last week.  I got the inspiration from Sasha`s Blog she has made one in a very similar style.  Making/giving a card every week that has to be different makes you really that can be hard for me sometimes!!!   Every little bit of inspiration is helpful and that`s what is so wonderful about................Blogging. 

 Card made using Spellbinder Timeless Rectangle Die approx 61/2 x 41/2
I cut a frame in the top layer with the next die down in the set
Paper from a NitWit collection a scrap I had lying from something else
Backed this with another full Die cut
Back of the card is yet another Full Die Cut
Rose made from scraps using Spellbinder Blossom Five 
Leaves from my Die Cut Bit Box and a Stick Pin from stash
Computer generated greeting cut using smallest Die in the set

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you take the time to visit.
