Card and collage

Hello Everyone. How quickly the days are passing this week. I can't believe it is already Thursday and half of that has gone as well. Nice to have you find time to call in even when the time flies by so quickly--thank you 

At Tando Creative Challenge this time the layer is Lovely Layers and you have the whole of August to join in

I made this card for our neighbour who is moving to Scotland to help his son and family. We have loved having him as a neighbour and will miss him lots.

I made the papers for the card in Paint Shop Pro but the card with the butterflies on it was given to me by a friend so I cut some of it out into the shape for a layer on my card.

Then there are three of the beautiful Tando Stars from a grab bag of stars and also a bit of ribbon to add some extra colour to the top of the card.Think it may be 6 layers altogether.

Now to Three Muses this week where  the theme is Friends.

It is lovely to have friends and I have had many in my life--still have one from when I was 7 years old.
Then there are friends you wish you hadn't had and this collage is meant for one of those :(

Well I can't be nice all the time 

Hope your day is going well or went well if it is evening already.



  1. Love your friends card, great sentiments, too, and the tando piece is wonderful with the layer and the gradient colours - juts lovely! Hugs, Valerie

  4. Lovely card for your neighbour, its sad when they move away. The Friend piece made me smile, great words.

  5. When a good, longtime neighbor moves it's like a part of the family leaving. I hope all goes well for him and his family.

    Very sweet card you made for him, I'm sure he'll appreciate it always.

    Cute friend card...keep up the fun.
