Thank you Sue!

Hello everyone!

Well it has been sometime (over 5 months) since I made a post! I have missed being on here and it is great to be back.

A lot has happened over the past 18 months and my working life has changed quite a bit! After months of changes I have now settled down in to a job where I get to work from home! It is great as I am able to be with my dog all day! She helps out in my office lol!

Anyway, I must say a BIG THANK YOU TO SUE WILSON . Sue does not know me but she has inspired me so much over the past weeks with her wonderful spellbinder creations. She has made me want to go back in to my craft room! The card below is inspired by Sue. I was watching her on create and craft with the different pick of the weeks from spellbinders and I treated myself to a set for my 40th birthday. I could not wait for them to arrive so I looked at the dies I had and gave it a go!
I cut the card to size first and then positioned the dies. I just wanted a little of the colour showing through.
I then stamped the sentiment. I embossed the bottom of the card which is hard to see as there are lots of flowers!

I added the flowers and a "Sue" bow with embellishments, Added some pearls to the flowers and the top of the card.
Overall I am very pleased with the result.
Yesterday my pack of sepllbinders came so I will be back with more!

Thank you so much for staying with me.
