Lace Flower

A card for my crafting friend Helen, it's past so safe to show now. Have had a few off days lately but feeling brighter again. So fine to feel nearly normal after a few days when the brain and the body just doesn't function on all cylinders. Never mind, maybe not like a Porsche rarin to go but more like an old jalopy lol, I'm a happy bunny today. An added bonus, the Sun's shining and a lovely blue sky so maybe a walk with the dogs later up in the forest, Such a lovely smell even at this time of year from the pine trees.
Right enough of my woes. My card:
Have used some new stamps from My Mind's Eye 'the sweetest thing'.  The colour combo idea came from a card I made at a class I went to, really loved the combination. I stamped the lace flower with Memento ink and then the laborious bit, cut out by hand, wasn't too bad once I got going, in and out all those wee loops. Layered them up and fixed with a pearl brad.

Gorgeous card Carol. Love that unusual colour combo. I have that beautiful stamp too but mine hasn't been out of the packet yet!

It was beautiful today here too from early on but now it's very grey and windy and really, really cold!

Have a lovely weekend. Hope the feeling better lasts.
