Good Evening every one out there in blog land hope you have had a nice day and have been able to get a couple of crafty hours in somewhere.This is a card for a very special lady called Betty, who likes you to make something that she hasn't seen before, well I realise that image has been around a while, but hopefully she will like what I have done with it, the shrunk flower and the buttons.
The colour will not seem to come out correctly on my camera, I seem to have crimson colours that don't match. In real life it is alot better.
the stamp is Hero Arts Engraved flower available from Sir stampalot
and the words are woodware clear set.
And the buttons.... well who hasn't got lots of buttons eh Lou.
Have a nice week love Chris xxx

Hi Chris,

Thanks very much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It's lovely to visit you back and I've had a really good nosey to the bottom of this page. I love the girl in the Ugg boots. She'd be perfect for nearly every female in my family (except me, Lol)

I love all your cards and this latest one is no exception. The main image has shrunk beautifully with no loss of definition. I'm sure Betty must have loved it.
