For My Friend

A slight departure from the normal style (less stamping - more, er, bits), for the following challenges:

Play Date Cafe Naturals


Maybe my cappuccino should have had a touch more milk as it looks rather dark in the photo. But I don't drink coffee so, whatever ;)

Addicted to CAS Friend

The Paper Players recycle/repurpose (button in the centre of the flower from old clothing, twine, cappuccino mat cannibalised from another card)

Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder
Punched leaves

Waltzingmouse sentiment stamped in Memento London Fog
Flower - Prima? (not sure)
Button and twine - stash

Had a double surprise yesterday - MUSE featured member for this card (thank you, fellow MUSE voters) and Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Top 3 for this card (thank you, Craft Stamper team!).

  3. This is so pretty! I love the mesh you've added to it, and the great swiss dots embossing!

  8. Wow - I'm really loving the 'beautiful bits' that you have combined here! Stunning color combo - so soothing and pretty to look at. You have created some beautiful texture!!

  9. Another gorgeous card - I adore these colours and the magic mesh looks classy. Congrats on your well deserved wins. I'm not surprised about your wins, I've been browsing past posts and I must say there must have been something in the water in Thailand, Australia??!!! I've always loved your cards, but since you got back, everyone of them seems to have that extra little something - all winners in my book!
    I hope your poor dog is feeling better, poor darling, never heard of a dislocated toe before - ouch!
