Get well mum...

Hello everyone :o)

Today's card is one I've made for an order...


I'm really happy with this one... you wouldn't believe how long I faffed with that sentiment (done in Word), trying to get it right... got there in the end though!  And the paper is made from two different Pink Petticoat digi papers (Dandelion Clocks & a dotty one)... a result of more faffing in Craft Artist, merging the two papers and using the transparency tool to fade the spotty paper into the dandelion one.  I was very impressed with myself, but will probably never manage to repeat it!

Ok... so I added the sentiment as a PNG file so you could grab it if you wanted it.  I've had to remove it though, as I tried printing it and it's blurry... no idea why.  Sorry, if I manage to sort it out I'll add it again!

Off for a little catch up with your blogs... hope you have a lovely evening :o)

This is very pretty Lisa. Love the sentiment and papers. Playing with digital images in these programs just sucks up the time but it was so worth it to create this beauty.
