Thank You!

Mum is doing really well!!  She is on a general ward and definately getting back to her normal self.

Finally got round to making some thank you cards for the staff at the hospitals my Mum has been treated at - and enjoying a bit of chill out time. 

Here is one of the cards I made using the 'In My Garden' set. It is really sweet and is a Level 1 hostess set.  You can get the set by placing an order or holding a worksop with sales totalling the qualifying amount.  I also have some places left in my Stampers 10 Club (details here).

I stamped the images using white pigment ink onto vellum cardstock, turned the cardstock over and then coloured the image from the back using markers.  This gives a gorgeous stained glass effect which looks really pretty.  I then punched the image out and mounted it on Mellow Moss cardstock to highlight the colours.

I punched circles out of the card blank and positioned the images through the holes, glueing them to the back part of the card blank.  I finished off the card using a piece of Certainly Celery ribbon, a chrystal brad, and a sentiment trimmed to fit one of the Hodgepodge Hardware frames.  The peircing along the bottom of the card was done using the piercing tool and mat set (so pleased with this!)
