Just one CASEd card!!

It is nice to be back and actually making some cards!! This card was one I had almost finished whilst at Kim's stamping retreat a couple of weekends ago. It is almost totally CASEd from Jen's blog - I just loved it and the way the leaves were coloured. I have no sentiment on it yet and the photo corner is only there to cover the SU logo which I discovered after putting everything together LOL!!

These leaves are from the SU French Foliage set which I don't own but borrowed from Jane on the weekend! So thank you Jen for the inspiration and Jane for the loan!!

I have been with my mother whilst she underwent open heart surgery at the tender age of 85. She had four bypasses and a valve replacement done and was in hospital for seven weeks. Now she is back in her own home and just needs time to get her strength and appetite back.

And now I need to get my mojo back and get on and use some of the goodies I have stashed in my craft room.

Card: SU Basic Grey, Whisper White, Bravo Burgundy, Basic Grey DSP
Stamps: French Foliage
Ink: Bravo Burgundy and Ruby Red
Other: SU punch, die [for the zig zag piece] silver brads, button and twine

Hi Jean! Good to see you back with such a lovely card! Glad to hear your mum is ok- what an ordeal for someone who is 85! Love your "save" with the photo corner- that logo has done that to me too!

I do remember this card now Jean. Great to see it finished. Perhaps you'd better see the poll about dsp and the logo on the demo forum of Splitcoast Stampers. rofl

I love this card Jean! It's simple and elegant and the colours are lovely together!

Glad to hear your mum is on the road to recovery. What an ordeal for a lady of her age!
