Turned out to be a busy week. The grands were here Sun. and Mon. Then my granddaughter went home Monday night but my grandson stayed through Tues. We went to the place where he could drive the gocarts.  The rest of the week was errands, chores and Friday a friend came and I was able to give her lots of craft stuff. She was just thrilled and wants to start making cards. There was no card making going on all week. This is one I made last week but it didn't photograph well. It has to be the card, it couldn't be my photo skills. The lettering is shadowed so that might be part of the problem. I'm trying to build up my stash along with trying new things. This is using the Stampin Up dies Botanical Builders. Be kind to one another.

  5. It's just a gorgeous card! You are trying all kinds of new things, and I really like this design (also the colors). I'm glad you had fun with the grands, and that the craft stash got shared with a friend. This is a beautiful use of this SU set. Loving the way you've done the punched edge on the floral piece. Very classy. TFS

  7. Don't know how you have done that cornering but boy is it gorgeous. Love the colours and the shadowing is awesome. Network is still giving problems but at the moment it is holding its own and self righting when it goes off air. Service provider say they have sorted the problem but as they are in India what do they know!! Gotta learn to type faster that's the answer. hugs Mrs A.

  8. What a beautiful card Brenda! I love that paper you used and of course I am loving this die/stamp set. Don't own it, but think it is so pretty. The sentiment being shadowed makes a big difference, makes it pop more. I think they should put shadows on some of these larger sentiments like that as I love the look. Sounds like it was a great time with the grands my friend! They are always a joy to have around aren't they? I can't wait until mine get bigger like yours, of course that means I will be much older too. lol Anyway I'm glad you are getting to spend time with them this summer. It really helps a lot! Hugs, Brenda
