Edinburgh Festival & Let Hope Fly Card

Hi Everyone, 

I hope you've all had a great weekend! It's always over too fast, but the working week drags 😜 It was the last weekend of the Edinburgh festival, I went to see a show with some friends.  We saw David O'Doherty, who was good, although I think the highlight for me was the massive cheeseburger I bought.  Typical me, always lead by my stomach. 

This is me looking delighted with my cake, there's nothing like buying cake from a van at 11pm, not any kind of cake either, a mimi's bakehouse cake! The following photo is my friend Alice and I, looking happy with our purchases and I look pretty drunk too! oops! 

The end of festival fireworks are tonight, but I'm not sure I'll watch them this year, if I change my mind I'm lucky enough to be able to see them from my window, it's an obstructed view, but at least it's something. 

This card was inspired by one I made a few years ago for my mum, it was one that I was proud of the layout and colours and so I worked it again with this one.  The stamp is by Betty at Simply B Stamps.  The ribbon is from my stash, the lace, cheese cloth and green ribbon is by the Ribbon Girl.  Papers are LOTV.  Stamp as always coloured with copic markers. 

I hope you guys like this.  I was incredibly lucky and had a friend buy a lot of my cards! This being one of them. I am so touched that someone likes them enough to buy them.  Selling handmade cards is always hard.  I never make any profit from them, the time and materials alone is always a lot but it's not about money, I make them because I enjoy it but it does hurt if someone asks to buy one and doesn't see why they should spend more than a £1 when they can get 4 for a £1 in the card factory.  I'm so happy that Alicia appreciated my cards. 

Take Care Guys! Lyns xx
