Cards for Friends

Hi everyone,

Well, its officially Autumn here in sunny Melbourne - phew! 
Fingers crossed Mother Nature will catch on soon & give us some wonderful autumn days 
& not the heat of summer!

I've been busy making a few cards for a dear friend Davinia Wood who has now moved with hubby Phil to Geraldton in Western Australia right by the beach! 
From a place called Tom Price, the back of nowhere!

This card I made because Davinia said she would like a scooter to pop to the shops with 
(as yet I don't have Scooter Tilda) she's on order!
On the Road Tilda fitted the bill nicely and
"Cool" Edwin I thought would make a great Phil looking exasperated with Davinia riding her bike lol ..


I've used Kaisercraft Fairy wishes design papers. 
Magnolia stamps Tilda & Edwin both coloured with Distress Inks.
The largest of the Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals for the card shape, I made slits in it to stand Edwin & Tilda against it & they fold down to close the card, I think it came out pretty well.

~~~     ~~~     ~~~

I can report that 
Davinia and Phil have now found & bought their first house in Geraldton - Yay!

For a New Home card I've used a favourite Magnolia stamp of mine
 "Welcome to a Lovely Home"

which is also coloured with Distress Inks, 
the papers are PION, 
Magnolia Doohickey Tag, 
the fence is LaLaLand, 
GoKreate & Spellbinders dies for the card shape.


Both cards have been received and were met with approval lol..

Its lovely to know that friends are happy & going to be well now they are down by the water, 
its the best place to be!
 I live near Port Phillip bay, which is 10 minutes away!

Stay safe and happy crafting until next time..
