A "Thank you"....

A "Thank you" for my friend, Beth, in Maine...
This is the stamp I used to make the flower:I layered it up:Inside, it's just stamped flat:Here's what I am thanking Beth for! She sent me this beautiful case, with lots of crafty embellishments inside, and included this lovely, glittery "mat stack" (a book of 6 x 4 sheets of patterned card):Beth said she was sending it as something I could do whilst I was at mum's! She also included chocolate but, um, it didn't seem to make it to the photo....

The case from Beth is totally beautiful, you're blessed. So is Beth.

It's gorgeous - and an unusual stamp, very versatile. It's funny but I had a dream last night about selling all my papercraft stuff, which I have partially done in reality - I've moved on to jewellery making and I have a gig next week to sell some! Hope your Mum is getting better x

What a precious friend you have in Beth! It is wonderful to get something sent from the heart...your card is purrrrfect. I love heart stamps because you CAN make flowers with them.

Helena you clever bunny you, what a super way to create a stunning flower, i would never have thought to do that and its so effective. Its a beautiful card, has a bit of a shabby chic feel to it, im sure the recipient will treasure it xxx
