"Just a lttle Card"

Hello Blog friends, oh! wow! another week about to start.  Where did last week go???
I must welcome my two new followers, Kelly and Viv.  Thank you so much for choosing to join me here in me wee corner of Blogland.    I feel so pleased, there are so many talented crafters out there and you have chosen to call on me.
Well folks may I tell you about my Saturday:-  Hazel my friend Elaine and I went to Inverness to meet Kate (Cullisocks) what a treat, she is a lovely, wonderful, sweet person.   We recognised her, she recognised us instantly, no looking or wondering.  It was dry if rather bracing in Inverness, however we made our way to the Palace Hotel overlooking the river.  We got a nice corner, wonderful views with comfy seats where we sat and chatted, had a beautiful lunch, chatted more, and even more.   Then believe it or not it was time to walk back to the bus station for the bus back to Perth.  We had a beautiful run up and back and will be doing it again soon no doubt.    Kate has also said she will pop down to Perth after her holiday in June where we can have another good old chat.
We are all going to NEC in Birmingham in November, this was the first of a few meeting before we go.  Really looking forward to going knowing that we get on so well. 

My card today is a little card I showed a few weeks ago in a group of cards I had done.
This is a closer look, it is a very, very simple little card

Base card is approx 4 x 4 
SB Hearts Die,  SB Classic Square Die to cut an embossed piece of card.  I had inked the inside of the folder with Picked Raspberry TH Distress Ink using my Brayer
Memory Box Die to cut out the Swirls which I also cut in Pink to give me the contrasting flowers.  The little pink and white flowers are waste pieces from Dies and Punches.
I keep these little punched out bits in clear bottles that you get for decanting Shampoo and such like for taking on short holiday or weekend them at the £1 shop.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it

  6. Hi Patricia, so sweet and delicate definately a girly card, was so pleased your meet up with Kate went well. So upset I could not go but my sister's knee has not improved and she is still on crutches hence the need for my help with the boys. Maybe next time.
