Card for a DC friend who is struggling at the moment.

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world {{{{{hugs}}}}} for all who need or want them.
What a beautiful morning it is with wall to wall blue sky and sunshine, although there was quite a frost when I got up!

I made today's card for for a lovely lady who has some health problems as well as looking after her husband.


I raided my stash for this one, the newest thing I have used is the white linen card from Papermill Direct, and I bought that several months ago!
I folded and cut the card to my favourite 7x5, then edged it with an old EK Success daisy punch which I had forgotten I had, but now I have rediscovered it I shall be using it again.....and again.....and again because it is so pretty!
I punched the flowers with a very old Woodware punch from scraps of card in my bit box. The brads for the flower centres I bought way back in the year dot.
Leaves cut with Memory Box die from a scrap of Papermania textured card.
Sentiment stamped with Versafine inkpad using a stamp from a My Creative Time set.

Lovely card Jackie - I particularly like the little daisy flowers with the brad centres. And the punched edging is gorgeous. Hope Stephen is continuing to recover well. Elizabeth xx

Your card is gorgeous Jackie and I'm sure your friend will appreciate it. The daisy border punch is fabulous... and matches so well with the main floral spray!
