Hiya folks, I go AWOL for ages and now you can´t keep me away lol. It is fabulous being fit enough again to play in my craft room so I am taking advantage. Something different from me today, no bright colours, papers nor flowers - yeeks what´s happened to me! I have taken the plunge and tried my hand at CAS but not too sure I have managed that yet.
This card I have made for a friend who has just started chemo and radiotherapy bless her.


I was fortunate and won this Ferns and Butterflies Silhouette stamp by Crafty Individuals  on   Crafty Hazelnut´s Christmas Challenge, I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black and matted onto black card. The verse/sentiment was already embossed on the card and is very appropriate I think.
