Here are a couple of cards i made using the same sentiment. They are 6 inch base cards with embossed edges. (Rose and Swiss dots) The first card has vine leaves which were hand drawn, coloured with promarkers then cut out, I then added 3 little white prima flowers with crystal centres. The second card just has a cluster of blue flowers from Wild orchid crafts. The leaves were cut using a woodware punch. TFL x
I'm loving these simple cards, there just up my street as i really am not into anything fussy. This is a 6 inch card blank, and a bit of matting and laying using some lovely lilac card. The greeting is computer generated. I used a large lilac rose that i got in hobbycraft ages ago which i sprayed with glitter spray. It doesn't show up much, but now the spray had dried it looks like dew drops. I finished off with 3 leaves using the woodware leaf punch and not forgetting 3 little pearls for my usual bit of bling.

Made this for my gorgeous niece who is getting married next year, she is sooooo excited. It's an A/5 card blank, the centre has been embossed with a scroll embossing folder, although it's doesn't show up much on the photo. Used two hearts to represent the bride and groom. I added pearls to the bride and made a dickie bow from ribbon for the groom. The text is computer generated. I also made a lovely insert to make it special, just like my niece. TFL x

I live in Kent, and have been making cards for about 8 years. I have 2 gorgeous grandsons, Louis who is 9 and Fray is 4. My grandson Louis was diagnosed at 6 years old with having "DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY". This came as a complete shock to our whole family as we'd never heard about this form of muscle disease, nor is there any previous family history of this condition. The past year has been very painful for all of us, as we've had to learn a lot about Louis' condition and how he will be affected in the future.
There are a number of different types of muscular dystrophy, DUCHENNE being the most severe form. All of which are caused by faults in the genes which cause a cruel, progressive muscle weakness due to muscle cells breaking down which in time are gradually lost. This is a very rare and serious condition, which affects around 100 baby boys per year in the U.K. By the age of 8 to 11 years all boys are unable to walk, and confined to a wheelchair, and for all boys, this conditions is so serious, it is 100% fatal.
If you would like to donate to our charity to help in the finding of a cure for Louis, and all the other boys suffering, then please contact me.
