Fond Farewell ~ Crafting Forever Inspirational Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I cannot remember a time in my life that I have been bored – there has always been something for me to do  ranging from reading, weeding my flower beds, baking bread or cakes, sewing on a button, even clearing out a cupboard or drawer or crafting – I think all of these are ‘creative’ in some way so I have really loved the Crafting Forever Stamp set particularly the ‘Do Something Creative Every Day” greeting.

Today’s card uses just this stamp along with the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches.  The Crafting Forever Stamp set is about to retire along with the Gold Faceted Gems I used for the center of my daisy!

Heirloom Frames and Daisy Lane Vintage Birthday Card

So today’s  card has a sort of vintage look with some sponging to soften cut edges using the Daisy Lane Stamp set with the Medium Daisy Punch along with the Well Said Stamp Set and coordinating Well Written DIes.
