Hello, and a wonderful Friday.. just a few more hours before the weekend :-)
This card for today uses the wonderful sketch that my friend Carole provided this week for the Friday Sketcher blog. Heidi from STAMPAVIE asked me to sent in my cards i have created for the store so she can take them to Sarah Kay when they talk about new licences for stamps. What an honour!! So i thought.. i have to make at least one "french" card. lol. Thats why i picked "Merci" as sentiment.

Stamps: STAMPAVIE (Sarah Kay), Sentiment: Stampin up
Embellishments: Raspberry Ribbons all the ribbons, beautiful brads and the embossed corner pieces (Prima Marketing) were sent to me by Carole and the Prima Flowers by wonderful Tammi!!

Thank you for visiting me today. Iam still recovering from surgery but should be back soon.

Wow, fantastic cards. The pink one was great with the cool heart detail. And the christmas card with the cat was cute.

It's a lovely card. I do like Sarah Kay but won't buy them because they don't have an angel policy so I hope they can sort that out soon.
Hope you're feeling better soon.
