Allsorts #91

Hi girls. Friday already - this week has just flown in and we are ready for another weekend. Where does the time go? Anyway, thank you for dropping in on my blog. I can only hope you like what you see.
Well this Saturday will be the last that Stampaholics in Perth will be open for business. As I said a few weeks ago Siobhan is having to close the shop for economic reasons. I will miss the shop but I will really miss Siobhan's encouragement and guidance. I wish her well in her new career operating the new scanning equipment in Perth Royal Infirmary.
I made this card for the Allsorts Challenge where the theme was "Inspired by Nature". I inked up House Mouse's "I give you my Heart" and coloured it using my Copics. the papers are digis from Bearly Mine Designs and I used Bazzil as a mount. I used a Martha Stewart double loop border punch for the bottom border. The ribbon was part of a bundle Tracy over at Country Mouse gave me for my Birthday last week. The flowers are by Wild Orchid and the pearls are from my stash.
I hope you like this card and that you might be able to find a minute to leave a comment letting me know what you think about it. Constructive criticism is always welcomed.
I hope that as you look toward the weekend you have a lot of good things planned. Above all stay safe and keep healthy.

  18. Such an adorable card Fiona. Love the design and the details also. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Hugs Michele x

  19. Hi Fiona
    I love the card and your ideas are very inspiring. I just want to know what you do with all the lovely cards you girls make with the flowers on them, since they must be difficult to post, or do you make boxes too? I am really sorry to hear about the store in Perth - I used to live near Pitlochry and used the store when it first opened until I left in 2004. The internet is a fabulous tool, but sadly has been the demise of many small businesses I reckon. Happy crafting
