Altenew- Best Wishes

Hi All

I hope you all had a great weekend my husband mowed the lawn on Saturday.  It was a good job he did as it rained all day yesterday and then we are back to sunny skies today, what a mixture of weather we do have here in the UK.
We had to take one of our cats to the vet as he came home limping. Were not sure what he has done the vet said it was his elbow area, it is all swollen. Anyway he is on painkillers and bed rest -if there is such a term for a cat.
 Anyway on to today's card  which is just clean and simple.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment and then teamed this up with the Peony stamp from Altenew - A beautiful day, using Tim Holtz distress inks in various shades of pink.
The rest of the card is just matting a layering using SW double pierced dies  and is completed with pearls in each corner.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  4. Hi Maria
    Extremely lovely card and has reminded me I have an Altenew stamp and die set I've yet to use.
    Poor puss. Would love to see how you keep him on bed rest lol!
    Got one wash dried yesterday and another today in sunshine.
    Best wishes.
