Good Friends!!

I have been wanting to show you this little project for just over three weeks now. I made a card  for my wonderful friend Kathy who lives in the US, then I decided to make her a little something extra. I was begining to think that kathy was never going to recieve her thinks but she told me yesterday that the mail man had finally been. Here's what I made her.
First of all is the card, I'm sorry it's not a very good photo. I think I could be a Lovin' Ink junkie, I just love Janet and Michelle's goodies, the lace and the heart ribbon slider are from Lovin' Ink. I used the lace that why round to look like a little picket fence, I think it works. The image is Tilda picking cherries and coloured with Promarkers. Everything else is from my stash.

This is the little something extra I made for Kathy!!

This is the first time I have made anything like this and I am kind of pleased with the end result. For those who know me, know that for me to say I'm pleased with something I've made is rare, as I always think what I made isn't as good as everyone else's.
So here's what I used.
Image - Sitting Tilda by Magnolia and coloured with Promarkers.
Flowers - Joanna Sheen and my stash.
Bling and papers from my stash.
The sentiment inside the frame is by East of India.
I can't think who the blank frame is by but I bought it from Samual Taylors and I think it cost something like £1.90! It has glass in the front and back, I had soooo much fun trying to stick Tilda on the inside without any glue showing, in the end I used a couple of pins and sticky tape.

So Kathy I am so pleased you loved your card and frame. Thanks for been a such a wonderful caring friend, just wish you didn't live so far away but I'll keep working on that magic spell!!
