Some people you meet are an inspiration.  I was lucky enough to meet a special woman who was a stall holder next to me at a market a year or so ago.  We had so much in common, even as far as having the same make and colour of car.  She is such a bright, happy,  positive person.  We hadn’t really kept in touch but our paths bumped again just recently.  Our daughters are teaching music at the same school for a while.  How amazing – I said we had a lot in common.  I have made her a little card and here it is –

hello

I really enjoy making easel cards and I really like how this particular card has turned out so I thought I would enter it in the DP2 Challenge #170 – Lace & Ribbons.  It fits the criteria because it has a pretty organza ribbon bow and some gorgeous black lace.  The image from Mo is “Alisa with Roses”  which is another coincidence because that is my dd’s name.  The pretty papers are from Prima “Rondelle” paper stack.

Here is front when folded ready for mailing.

The inside of the card.

There are a few too many layers and flowers for it to fit comfortably into an envelope so I’ve made a 13 x 13 (5 x 5) mini pizza box mailer.  I mean to put a template for the box on my blog in the next couple of days – remind me if I forget.

I decorated the lid;

I’ve enjoyed this little project and I hope you enjoyed looking.

Bye for now,
