Mrs H is one of my biggest fans and when I sat down to make a card for her, I had absolutely no idea what to make. Have I ever told you how a blank page scares me? Well it does, and it did, but I was determined, so after about 3 attempts, I embossed a single flower in white on a white panel. I started sponging some bright colours and thought it looked a little bit like tie-dye. But at that point, I just knew that this card would not work out, so I put down the panel and started something else, based on a card I'd made in the past that I knew Mrs H liked. I was really pleased with the bright colours and how it turned out:
And then my daughter came into my craft room and saw the incomplete tie-dye card. She loved it and encouraged me to finish, just to see how it would work out. I did and I love it:
So now I had a problem - which one to send? In the end I decided to send both. I wrote my greeting on a post-it note and put it in the pink and orange card and she can now decide whether she would like to keep both, keep one and send one to someone else, or send both.
Happy Birthday my friend - looking forward to many, many more adventures together!
