Happy Easter, everyone!
I have been desperate to write a post, but I've had to concentrate on my commissioned work before doing anything else. This card is for my closest friend who is going through a very tough time at the moment. I figured that this might cheer her up a little. I photographed it inside my new pop up photographic tent, which is going to take a bit of getting used to. I really should have bought the larger one, as I write lots of projects that need step by step pictures and I don't think this will be large enough for that, although, you can see from my photo that my desk there really isn't enough space for anything bigger! But for taking a picture of a single card, it's going to be useful. The stamps used on this card are all from a company called High Hopes at www.highhopesstamps.com based in Canada. I don't usually go for cute images, but I love this company and have a box full of their unmounted stamps! The flowers are Prima and the greeting is printed on the computer and punched out using Stampin' Up! 1 3/8 circle punch, plus the scalloped circle punch. The frond leaf punnch is by Martha Stewart and the patterned paper is from my stash of odds & ends.
