Just one person.....

Good morning and I hope you are all ready for another new week. I have just safely packed my 2 eldest off to school and I am looking forward to the relative peace and quiet of just one this morning. We just had the most awful week weather wise up here in Aberdeenshire, so now the schools are back, the sun is finally popping its head out!

Right, onto my card. I have seen quite a few of these easel style cards around in blogland and I wanted to try one for myself. It is refreshing to make something other than a square card.

This image which I think is my most favourite EVER is from Ladybug and Friends. I love these two hugging. They could be sisters or friends. So it won't be long till you see another card with this pair on it! They are coloured with prismas.
The papers are Crate 'Sweet Branch' Collection. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup stamps and is available from Quixotic Paperie. I just love that sentiment. Before my sister left to go abroad to the Phillipines, she gave me a card with that sentiment on it. So when I see that quote I think of her. Love you and miss you Rach!

Thanks for popping by!

Judy xx

Gorgeous card Judy and what a lovely sentiment. Actually came backk from SECC with some money - amazing!! Have just wasted my time so far today on my day off. Realised this morning I've got Guild tonight, meeting to sort out our quiz night tomorrow, haircut on Wednesday and cardmaking at a friend's house on Thursday night. And to crown it all I'm distracted thinking about Catriona cos her baby is due tomorrow - or whenever, Poppy was 12 days late.

Hi Judy
Love the easel style card. Such a cute image!
You must miss your sis. I spent a month in the Philippines
and loved it. Hope your weather is better this week. It's cold and rainy in
Austria but soon it will be the ski season :)
