A Thank You card...

...sent to my lovely bloggy buddy Lily of Lily's Art Creations, to say a huge thank you for the fantastic blog candy I won recently.

It has taken me a while as my health has been rubbish as usual, but I am cautiously optimistic things are improving.

The background was created using this fab stamp by B Line Designs from LB Crafts. Sadly it looks as though many of the B Line stamps no longer exist, I'm so glad I got mine when I did...in my view they were some of the best stamps ever and I will never part with them!

I left a gap each side of the background so that I could stamp this swirl over the edge. It is by Fancy Pants, from the Bella Brush stamp set, again one of my all time fave's.

The gorgeous orange Webster's Bloomer was part of my blog candy, and the beautiful wrinkle ribbon was handmade by Lily herself! What a talented girlie she is.

Finally the sentiment is by Hero Arts, and I've used a Waltzingmouse stamp above and below the sentiment.

Thank you again Lily for all the wonderful candy, I have only just started to play and am having great fun with it all!

Beautiful!
I agree with you I love the LB Design Stamps ... love this one but unfortunately don't have it and wish they still did their fab woodblock range as I only managed to get one of their BG Stamps.

Perhaps we aught to get together and see if they'll bring them back.

Hope you're feeling better

Hugs

Hi Sarita,

Thanks for the truly truly beautiful card. I can't describe how suprised, amused and thrilled I was on opening the envelope! Your work is so tasteful and elegant - and I'm so happy to be the one to receive this card. I really appreciate it and know the effort that went in to it. She is now sitting proudly on the center of the mantlepiece for all to see!

Hope you feel better soon. :)

Hugs,
Lily

Magnifique carte... Talent innomable. Je suis en admiration devant tant d'idées, mais aussi sûrement de matériel. Ce qui n'est pas mon cas ! Pas de place chez moi, juste une petite armoire. Et aucun cours. Quelque visite sur des blogs
Je reste sans voix devant tant de belles choses.

@ Bientôt !

Beautiful card ... Unspeakable talent. I am in awe of so many ideas, but surely equipment. This is not my case! No room in my house, just a small closet. And no progress. A few visits to blogs that inspire me.
I'm speechless in front of so many beautiful things.

@ Soon!
