here is the other Grand dies from the last spellbinders dies they was in a bundle of 2 on the POTW ,
I was told by my Sister the theme was emerald so this is why I went with the colours ,the main card is Mint from Hobby craft  Had it ages,I did want to make it stand up Card but it wouldn`t stand write so I did landscape instead ,Sue Wilson  Gala stamps are absolutely fab they are my favourite stamp at the moment I have embossed it with wow powders ,Also use the ivy leaf mask on the last two layers of the card and distressed the whole card  when still in dies from the summer collection Moss Green got it  at bargain £9.50 from a craft shop in Whitstable, they are part of Oyster Stamps  ( and not £17.99 on C&C).

Get well card

This card I made two weeks ago we had a hell of a week 2 funerals and on the Friday mum at hospital ,when I had dropped my mum off and went to park the car as no disable bay free ,My brother-in-law shouted what are you doing here babe ,I replied back what are you doing we chatted on the way back to hospital my sister-in-law had been taken in ,I said as soon as mum`s appointment was over I`d come round ,I did go and see her she didn`t look good ,so as soon as I gotr home I made a card her it is .
then in the evening we got a phone call from his brother not good we went over to Faversham to be with him
she has been told she has the dreaded C word ,she is now going through loads of test we do have to stay strong for her and I do hope and pray things do work out for her .sorry for my woffle but what a year I have had with the dreaded C word .

My GC was a way so this is the only way I could do the embossing on the card on my cuttle bug but I do like the way it turned out and more importantly it brought a smile on her face when she opened the card bless her
