Good morning, all my crafting friends. I know I have been fairly 'light' with my posts in the last 2 weeks,
but I do have a good excuse. I have been on holidays in beautiful New Zealand. John and I are sitting
in the departure lounge at Auckland airport, waiting for our flight to be called. I guess by this time
tomorrow our wonderful holiday will just be a very happy memory...clothes washing, cooking, and
house cleaning will take care of that.
While we were in New Zealand, one of my Crafty Little Fairy design team mates, Lisa (who lives in
England) celebrated her birthday. It was my turn to send her a card, so this is what I made for her.
I used one of my all time favourite Penny Black images. Sorry I can't tell you the name of it, but
of course I didn't bring my stamps with me (although John said I brought enough "junk" with me).
Edited Thank you Pauline...it is Hedgehog Bouquet.
A closer look at the little hedgy, coloured with Promarkers.
The inside of my card is very simple. I bought the gorgeous set of ivy dies for my birthday
a few weeks ago. I used the larger one in the set for the inside of my card, and the smaller
one for the front. It was love at first sight, as I always love trailing ivy, and my beloved
grandmother's name was Ivy. Once again, I cannot remember the brand, so I will update
my products list when we get home. Edited Marianne Ivy Corners.
