Leafy Green

Oh my … I just checked and my last post was on 21st June!!  My apologies for being so tardy :/

We’ve had a rough week here with my Father in Law passing away early Sunday 3rd August and we had the funeral on Friday 8th July.  He was 96 years old and being the fanatical cricketer he was he would agree that he had ‘a good innings’!  Its always the good cricketers that are always out just before their 100 is it not? Being a veteran soldier he was given a lovely tribute by the local RSL and they also held the wake for him at no cost to the family which was very nice. It was a long emotional day but I do think Pop would have been proud. I must say though that “The Last Post” has not affected me they way it did Friday before and I dare say each Remembrance Day will be the same.

Onto a brighter note …

Here’s a card I made using the gorgeous Growing Green Stamp Set.  Sometimes it is hard to see uses for a stamp set full of flowers other than cards with flowers so wanted to share this idea with you ….

I originally  created this for a dude card however I’ve been informed that its not a dude card but a dudette card!

I’m thinking I might recreate this into a dude card using some Crumb Cake and replacing the twine bow with maybe some twine wrapped around the River Rock panel.

I just love this set as its images are just so lovely to water colour and as you can see it could be used for either male or female cards – regardless of what your kids say 😉

This is another of those queasy cards which are suitable for any occasion at all.

I do hope you like this card and would love to hear what Stampin Up! sets you like to use for both male & female cards.

Dont forget that when you spend $100 or more during July you will receive a gorgeous Ice Cream Parlour gift pack of ribbon and buttons absolutely free – thats over $30 worth for free!  So email or ring me with your orders today and grab your free ribbon & buttons.

  1. Sorry about your FIL’s passing.
    This is a cool card, I reckon using the same layout with French Foliage set would make it a dude card.

  2. Hope ur doing OK Leonie. I know ur a v v strong lady….but sometimes it’s v v hard to muster the strength needed…no matter how “good” the innings.
    I love this cards simplicity. I think we get so caught up sometimes in technique and layering that the simple things get forgotten. This card is all the tones I love. So well done.
    Lov n hugs to you and ur family.

  3. sorry to hear about your pop passing away Leonie. I know that the first time I heard the last post after my grandfathers funeral I just cried. I think the other mothers at the ANZAC day assembly at school was wondering why I was crying.
    Love your card too. I used Growing Green in my latest card too. Just have to go and photograph it for my blog which I have neglected as well!!
