Friend card {Scrapmatts/Flourish with a Bling Product Swap} Studio 75/Prima





HAPPY Thursday!!  Weeeeeee!!!  Hubby gets back from a business
trip tomorrow & I am hoping that this weekend will be a good one.
These days time is so precious, there's just not enough of it to
 go around, so I am looking forward to a mega blog-surfing
 session & time on my laptop.  Yup still no computer for me!!!
  It's with a hard-drive retrieval specialist and so far - NO joy :( 

Anyway, here's my last Scrapmatts share for February.  Geez...
this really has been one tiny month.  March {my birthday month!}
is soon going to be upon us.  At least it will be longer!


I created this card for a dear online friend of mine who lives in Sweden.  I'm sure some of you can guess who it is.  She is one of the nicest people I've ever met online & I have a little love package making it's way to her very soon. 

 As well as the obvious chipboard & bling used (the Elise Silver crystals as well as the glossy vine - all from FWAB) I also used inks, mists & microbeads.  I also included a real crochet doily & some lovely Prima & resin flowers.  All things we know this special friend of ours loves don't we?!?


I used the lovely Studio 75 papers from last year here - Summer & Latte - from Poland.   Want to know about the SOON TO BE ENDING Product swap with all those great prizes I keep banging on about?  Go HERE to check it out!  Almost the weekend people!!

Totally agree this months was just way to short and super busy because of it. Gorgeous card Helen, love the colour you've created with the misting and the application you've applied to that chippy looks like you've plucked it out of the garden. Nicely done!!! Well enjoy you weekend with hubby.

Cannot believe it's been over 3 weeks since I visited your blog, but there it is the proof. My goodness how there never seems to be enough time for everything I want to do. Now that I cannot sneak in time for commenting during daytime in the office, everything has just crashed and I'm so behind everywhere that it seems a herculean task to catch up. Now who could that Swedish friend of yours be, I know you have two over here ... It is such a gorgeous card too! LOVE the bling and de luxe feel to it! Don't say I've missed your birthday!!! WHEN WHEN WHEN is it?!!! mwah mwah mwah!!! E
