'FRIENDSHIP' and 'GIVING THANKS'


Hi,

I kept this card simple as am trying to get it into my head that less is more, so in a way its an experiment.

The picture is from Crafty Individuals and the stamps are by Kelly Panacci and Hero Arts. I have heat embossed the flourishes with Copper.

Am entering this for Lotstodochallenge - Friendship and

The Cheerful Stamp-pad - Giving Thanks

Just hope it fits the bill. Have a happy Sunday, am off now to cook the Sunday Roast, but will be back later to do what I love the most, visiting my friends blogs. Thank you for popping in and for your terrific support. Take care, Annette x

Netty, Friendship is most certainly one of the things I am thankful for, friends both near and far away. Your card is perfect. Simple and gorgeous. I love the swirls. I am curious. Your blog is called Netty's Craftings. In your blurb above the comment block, you sign it Nettie. And sometimes you sign your comments Annette. What is your preference?
