I treasure your friendship

Hi there!

It's a beautiful Saturday morning here in Abu Dhabi. The sky is blue, and it is 23°C.

I am listening to Neil Diamond while I'm typing this post. So sad to know he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and that he had to cancel his touring program. Still one of my all time favorite singers!

On to today's card... inspired by a couple of challenges :

I used :

  • A beautiful bouquet "digital stamp"  found in an online coloring page
  • My own sentiment
  • Gift cut (party set in the silhouette store)
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Zig markers
  • Enamel dots

I saved the sentiment for you to download and use :

Font used : Meadowbrook


Time out challenge ~ I picked the word 'gift' as my inspiration

Happy little stampers January CAS challenge ~ Friendship

Inkspirational challenge  ~ "Attachment" : (Bow)


Thanks for visiting me today!

This is stunning-so many techniques here all combined to make a CAS card. I love the vase base-I guess that is zig markers? I also like the placement of the enamel dots and how all this is popped up-one lovely card and so good to see at Time Out and Ink x

Such a pretty card, Hannelie! These colors are really lovely, and I love the enamel dots you've added. The sentiment is wonderful. I can see the pink peeking out from inside, too. I love this! Have a wonderful weekend. Bev

So very pretty, Hannelie ... a beautiful bouquet, so wonderfully coloured ... and so perfectly placed inside the gift box 'vase'! A gorgeous card that's perfect with your lovely sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out!

You've had a creatively busy week ... me, not so much ... sorry I'm so behind I haven't had chance to chat at each fabulous post ... though I have so enjoyed seeing every single card (as always)! Back to normal next week, I hope! Hugs, Anita :)

That surely is a pretty digital stamp and I love how you've placed it in a pot all wrapped up with a bow for gift giving! Fresh and lovely color choices with enviable watercoloring. I saw the news about Neil Diamond. Very sad. Thank you for another nice sentiment to add to my digi collection.

Your card today is just lovely! And the sentiment is perfect - a friend will be sweetly touched by it. I went to a Neil Diamond concert years ago, when he came to Minneapolis. It was a fun time!
