"For a Special Friend"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.   Welcome to my little corner of Blogland great to have you call by.  I have to thank you all for your continued support during the months past and months to come.   I know some of you manage to keep regular Posts going during the summer, me.... well I was stating to struggle a bit.  It will be better for me just to pop something on when I can rather than worry about creating something to Post every day, I do hope you all understand.   I am trying to visit as many of you as I can each day.  If I miss you for a few days I have not deserted you, I will be back.
Here is a card I made for a friend of mine.  She is a bit down at the moment, I hope when it pops through her letter box it will cheer her up.

Base card 5 x 5
Pink Card Stock
Paper from Crafters Comapnion Bo Bunny selection
Rose made using a Tim Holtz Flower Die
Leaves from Sue Wilson`s Rose Die Set
Phil Martyn Sentiment stamp on a hand made banner

That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time, have a wonderful weekend

Patricia xxxx


  1. Lovely card which I'm sure your friend will appreciate.


  2. This is so special Patricia, the big flower is gorgeous, you know I,m a flower girl.

    I know what you mean about blogging, that is why I dont tie myself to blogging every day. xx

  3. This is beautiful Patricia, your friend will be very uplifted by it for sure. I know what you mean about blogging, I seem to have really struggled this year,which is why I post less...I'm not a fast crafter, I could never blog every day and I seem to have so little time lately, so of course it's craft first and blog when I can...have a good weekend, hugs Carole Z X

  4. Love your card, I like how you have stamped your roses then added just that one. Very effective. Hazel xxx

  5. Morning Patricia,
    Beautiful card, I'm sure your friend will love it.

  6. Good Morning Patricia, what a gorgeous card, I love everything about it, especially that bloom.
    I agree with you about the blogging, I find that I angst about not getting round everyone for comments too. So you just do what you can, this is an enjoyable hobby, once it becomes too serious it's a chore. Makes awaiting another of your wonderful creations all the more exciting, have a super weekend, I'm off to work today, boo ho, hugs katex

  7. This is so beautiful Patricia, I love the papers and stunning flower. I am sure your friend will be thrilled to receive such a special card.
    Thank you so much for you kind get well wishes.

  12. Lovely card which your friend will appreciate very much I do understand re the blogging I'm finding. I spend far too much time thinking of something to post and feel guilty at not being able to visit and comment all of the blogs I'd like to

  13. Hi Patricia,

  16. Hi Patricia,
    How lovely to see you, and with such a beautiful card. The design and colours are gorgeous.
    If you haven't time to blog every day, the pressure becomes intolerable and what was a pleasure becomes a nightmare, so don't beat yourself up about it. We just like to see you when you have time to visit us.
    Love Maureen xx

  17. So glad you have shared this one Patricia it is amazing. I am really loving these chintzy papers that are everywhere at the moment and the added bonus with you fabulous card is your stunning handmade rose too!! Hope to see you soon but if not...don't sweat the small stuff!! xx

  18. Wow Patricia, you have created a perfect matched rose for this background.
    Don't worry about not blogging on a regular day. I don't think anyone expects it. Crafting should be fun, and never become a chore. We just enjoy seeing your projects when you do them

  19. Oh my goodness - what a gorgeous card! The background paper is beautiful and your flower is absolutely stunning! I understand totally what you mean, I could never blog every day, at any time of year, I spend more time commenting (which I love) than actually crafting so I would never have enough things to post! People who love your work will always visit you - your creations are always so beautiful. Hugs, Anne xx

  20. a stunning flower patricia and it works so well with that paper - I'm sure this will cheer your friend up! Hugs rachel x

    Great colour combo too.

    Hugs and happy crafting, Erika. x

  38. Happy Monday to you Patricia. I was missing viewing your "beautiful cards" as Sue Wilson said last week : ) Im so glad you have added the last 2 wonderful projects to your blog. Sounds like you've had a great few productive days since you posted your two gift bags, doesn't it make you feel good when you can see all the hard work has paid off ?
    Anyway hon the box and tag is amazing, it looks right complicated though ! Can a dumb head find them easy or do you need some 'brain' to figure out detailed instructions lol as Ive not even attempted an Izzy bag' yet or the box for notelets !! So what chance do I have getting to grips with your origami box ?
    Im certain that when your friend gets this card she will feel so much happier just knowing you are thinking of her.
    Enjoy your new distraction (who wouldn't) : )
    Have a good Monday.

  39. Patricia, your beautiful roses will _always_ cheer someone - and this one is no exception. Love how you've complimented the dimensional rose with this lovely rose DP. It does get a bit difficult to post daily, and comment. There's this thing called "Life" that gets in the way sometimes, and I hope all of us understand that. Sometimes I can dash out for a quick look, but not always have the time to sit and comment at many blogs. Like you, I hope my buddies understand. I (and you too I know!) get around when we can. Big hugs & enjoy the season, whatever it is you are doing. TFS & Hugs

  40. Good morning Patricia

    Thank you so much for your lovely message yesterday. I was really touched to receive it.

    All is super good (but super busy) here in the House of Hearts. Lots to report once I finally get as far as making a blog post!

    Not sure where 2015 is going!!!! Eeekk!!

    I hope all is well with you?

    I see you are still being a very creative on your blog with lots of lovely projects being shared. My poor blog is very ignored at the moment :-(

    Loving the card you have posted here for your friend. Such beautiful colours and backing paper. Your flower is stunning .. as always.

    Love Jules xx

  41. Ooh I love this! The paper is so beautiful and looks perfect with your stunning flower!

  42. Hi Patricia

    Made it at last. Your box is stunning, as are your bags. I bought that die last year and have still nit used it, shame on me as they look beautiful, and those beautiful little bundles of energy are adorable. I love every project you put on your blog, it's a real pleasure to come over to see.

    Big Hugs
