Crafting Cafe Blog Hop

Crafting Cafe Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends,

Welcome to the first ever crafting cafe blog hop – the crafting cafe is a friendly group of crafters over on facebook who share their crafting journey together…. come on over and join us if you want to.

If you have started from the beginning of the hop you will have got to me from the lovely Celia Harrington site…. If you found this hop by accident – welcome! To go to the beginning of the hop, pop on over to Nikki’s blog, and then you will get to see the beautiful creations from everyone!
The theme for our blog hop is friendship, and this is the card that I have made.

Lily of the Valley stamp, coloured with Promarkers

Very easy scrunch flowers (there will be a tutorial for these soon), and die cut Ivy using a Marianne Designs die
Sentiment – die cut using a x-cut scallop square die, and the coloured with distress ink

Soon as the theme was announced I knew who I was going to dedicate this card to. She has been a wonderful friend to me for 21 years. She is such a strong and inspiring lady, and I am honoured to call her my friend, actually one of my best friends. Even though I have only met her face to face twice…as she lives over four and half thousands miles away from me!Β 

Her name is Michelle and she lives in Seattle, USA.

Thank you for your wonderful friendship, Michelle. It is something I treasure, always.

Thank you for hopping over to see me, now it’s time to hop on over to the next blog… next on the list is…….. Crafty bits-

Happy crafting

  2. Debbie, I love this card!

    It's beautiful! The distressed ink edges are so good! Really helps bring the card alive.

    I'm in awe of your promarker shading and blending, it's fab! I've got promarkers but haven't quite mastered the knack of the blending side of things!

    Well done,

    Thanks for sharing.



  3. A really beautiful card Debbi as always! I love this image and your colouring is fabulous. The sentiment is oh so true. I have a very good friend who although not a crafter has been there for me always and supports me so much in my crafting too.

    Big Hugs
