"Quick Cards"

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Hope you are all well, coping with the stress we seem to love to put ourselves through at this time every year all for "one day"!!!
The  frost here is so thick you would think it had snowed a little.  However it is not as bad as rain ... these poor people who have been flooded have so much to cope with, now that`s what I would actually call "stress".
Its Robert`s 9th Birthday today, where have all those years gone???  Ooooo!! that has just reminded me I did not photograph the card I made for him, best go do that before I forget again.
That`s it done ... a card to show later.
I have two of cards for today.  One just to let a friend know I was thinking of her.  The other a request by the old lady in the village I make cards for.  We are very isolated, no bus or shop.  I make and give a few of the older ladies and box of mixed cards so they have something if they need a card in a hurry.  I do still get requests, the one I got the other day was for one of these cards we really don`t like to make.

Both made using my most favourite set of stamps ever.  
They are from StampinUp  ... Stippled Blossom.  Unfortunately you can no longer get them
Very basic cards but look different using various shades of ink
Greeting on the first one is a combination of word stamps I put together for what I wanted.
Sincere Condolence  is a Phil Martin stamp

That`s it for today, thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

    I'm loving your cards, Patricia, with my favourite stamps, they look totally different in different colours, and I'm loving the stamp of Phill's for Condolences, so effective.

  25. Hello Patricia,
    I know I commented on these cards when I first saw them, or did I? Did I go straight onto the website to see if I could order them somewhere? I think that's what I must have done, and forgot to say that I think they are stunning, and the colouring is superb.
    love Maureen xxx
