A Card For A Special Person

Hi everyone, it's such a long time since I posted so I thought I'd pop by today with this card.
This is the first card I've made for quite a while and it's for a very special person, my dear aunt. She's had such a rough time lately and it's her birthday in a couple of weeks time, so I hope this cheers her up (she likes the vintage style)
It's a large 8" x 8" card and as you can see I made good use of a few of my Martha Stewart punches. Oh how I love these, sadly I managed to break my 'Doiley Lace' one, so I shall have to get a replacement as it was my very first punch and is one of my favourites.

Card Details:
* Image - Cardmaking Heaven 'Ladies Oval Topper Selection'
* Papers - K & Co
* Punches - MS Large Monarch Butterfly, Trellis and Eyelet Lace
* Nestabilities - Scalloped Ovals and Labels 4
* Sentiment - PC generated
* Everything else from my stash

Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be posting again regularly just yet. It seemed a bit silly posting and then disappearing for ages again, so I thought I'd take a complete break for a while and not return until things are really back to normal.
I shall pop in if I manage to make anything so that I can share it with you, but until then take care my dear buddies.

It's absolutely gorgeous Chrissie. No harm in a break, change is good! Cor, did you throw the punch at something then - I thought they'd be pretty indestructible for the price!

This is gorgeous sweetie. I am so sorry to hear you are feeling no better. I am different in the respect that being on here and carding is keeping me going at the moment. Looking forward to seeing you back soon when you feel able though. Keep emailing.
