Bloomin' marvellous!

A colleague of mine is leaving us. Her husband has taken a job on the other side of the country, so they are upping sticks and moving to Bristol, and she is going to start her own business.

I love the expression 'Bloom where you are planted', and having recently purchased the SU set, 'Beauty in Bloom' which includes this lovely 'bloom' wordstamp, it just seemed perfect for the purpose, as I know she is a little nervous about what lies ahead.

Just treated myself to the Nestabilities Labels #8 set, and embossing mats which make such a difference to the finished effect, so used one of those here on 3D pads, along with the SU 'bloom' stamp and my own writing. The flourish stamp has become separated from its original packaging, so don't recall the name of it.. sorry.. and to finish, some black ribbon, bit o' twine behind an old silver button, some Martha Stewart punched butterflies with gems, a blossom and roses.

  2. This is lovely. I got the embossing mats yesterday and haven't had a chance to try them out yet. I love the pink and black combo you used on this card. Is very striking.

    Oh to have handwriting as good as yours.

    Just to let you know that I haven't forgotten about singing the praises of your wedding stationery CD - time has been a little short but I promise to post soon. So much to do!!

    I just don't want to link it to anything else that I post so that it gets ultimate impact!!!

    Hope all is well with you and your Mum had a good time visiting my home town.

    Love Jules xx
