Thank you cherries

It's a little while since I blogged so I haven't had the chance to say how pleased I was to be chosen in the top 5 in the Clarity Challenge 9: Christmas.  Thank you to everyone who wrote such lovely comments - and the the team who chose it to be in the top 5!  I've now given the card to my Mum as her Christmas card and she is delighted with it.

My friend Carol sent me a very beautiful cross-stitch for my 60th birthday.  It is a real work of art and is displayed with pride.  She doesn't live close by so I wanted to send her a special thank you card.  I used the cherries stamp and thank you stamp both of which came as part of my 'New Designs Clarity Club' membership.  I used Clarity coated cardstock for the white panel and buffed it to make it shine/  The cherries and flowers are coloured with Promarkers and I used distress ink around the edge before matting and layering onto red cardstock.  It looked lovely in real life and she sent me a special email to thank me.  I hope you like it to and I would be really pleased if you left a comment or tip for improvement as both are really encouraging.
