Let us be grateful....


I had a card to make for a lady to give to her gardening loving brother on his 65 Birthday. He is a brother who is very special to her and she wanted something to reflect that. She picked up the card today and was delighted with it :) (breathing a sigh of relief here). I think Edwin could have done with a bigger background, he looks out of place a bit but I'm happy enough with it.

Image - Magnolia Edwin stamp
Papers - gingham paper, background garden pic from Thomas Kinkade
Embellishments - raffia, punched leaves, glitter letters and numbers
Sentiment - SeeD stamps and computerised quote

I would like to enter this into
