"Just for You"

Hello Blog friends, thank you for your visit and for leaving your comments.  I do read them all and I really appreciate you taking the time to leave one.
Woke VERY early this morning thinking, Wow! it is getting really quite light in the mornings again. Of course it was had been blooming snowing!!!! everything was pure white.   Yet another couple of inches, however it did not last long thank goodness, all gone by early afternoon.
I met Hazel in Perth this morning, when we were coming out of where we had our coffee it was snowing like fury.  A lady was coming in and greeted us with "Merry Christmas Ladies" or should that be "Happy Easter" rather confusing is it not!!!!   How right she was.

All the young Duffy`s fit and well, Thomas back at school. Mummy feeling well enough to go and get her hair cut.   All quite once again thank goodness, John even managing to lift a cup with his right hand today............................we are getting there.

Today`s card was "very" quickly made using Crafters Companion Angelica & Friends CD.  It was from the Card Companions section.  I got the CD as a gift from a dear friend of mine.  I would not have bought it but have to say I do love some of the backing papers and the images. 

Base card is 6 x 6 pink card from my stash
Piece of greenish/blue card from the Bit Box
A4 sheet printed from the CD giving you the Image, the backing piece, pink with the green stripes.  Also all the little embellishments.  everything on the card is from just one sheet.
I hand wrote the "Just for You"
Some glitter on her wings, hair band and the butterfly
Not usually my kind of thing but have to say, I am rather impressed that you can get an effective card from one printed sheet and a couple of bits of card.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by, love to have you here.

  1. Love the pastel colours Patricia and your touch of glitter. I am ashamed I underuse my CDs, maybe one day. xx Flora

  2. Good evening Patricia, good to hear that everyone is on the mend.
    Lovely card, beautiful soft shades and a very pretty image. I bought CDs like they were going out of fashion when I began crafting but rarely use them now as they use up so much ink and as my printer is a dell, the ink is so expensive, it's a pity cos I've got some lovely CDsKate x

  3. Your card is gorgeous Patricia. I love the sweet image and such pretty colours.

  8. Very pretty card Patricia. I agree with Kate about the cost of printer ink. Mind you, I just totally forget about my CD's. Maybe I should take a look at them again for inspiration. You never know!! The sun is actually shining this morning, first time for goodness knows how long, so I'm hoping it will take away some of this snow! Glad everybody is on the mend. Love from Christine xx
