Hello and thanks

  A couple more cards I have just made – the first is a Hello card to cheer up a friend of my husband’s in Sydney who is in a rehabilitation unit after having IMG_1490suffered a stroke.  As we are not really sure of his prognosis and condition, preferred a cheery hello rather than a more sombre get well card.

I have done the sponging on glossy white cardstock which I find easier to work with than the Whisper White.  For some reason when using the WW I end up with very patchy colouring and if I sponge too much find the cardstock starts to rub off.

The second card is a thank you card I had to make in a hurry.  That’s the joy of ‘wheeling’ – it is so quick and easy.  You will notice that with these cards I have used a combination of current and old Stampin’ Up product.  This is something I do if I am making for non-SU friends!  I have so much retired stock that is still lovely so I have to use it!  The wheel I have used is no longer available – it is Leaves a la Carte but doesn’t it go well with our new Sweetest Stem embosslit die – an exact match so it’s a shame that we can’t get the wheel anymore.

Hope you have all had a good weekend.  Mine has been very quiet which has been good – lots of time to indulge myself with playing.

These are stunning Judy! I especially love the Pendant Park card. I've never sponged on gloss, but must give a go. Good point about that wheel (which I have as well)- they do coordinate beautifully. Your weekend sounds lovely and relaxing (and deservedly so).
