Miss you........(my little nest of vipers)

Hello everyone, hope all is well with you and yours.
Firstly, a warm welcome to John and Jackie who have joined our merry band. So glad to have you with us. Hope you have a lovely holiday Jackie.
Thank you also to Lydia and Gail for your kind comments.

This is just a quickie today. I hadn't intended to do a post for today but I was playing with my birthday goodies from my wonderful best friend (affectionately known as the nest of vipers), who is currently basking in sunshine in Scotland (or so she says!!!) and I realised how much I was missing her. Its not a card but more an assembly of bits so I will just list what I used, rather than go into detail.

White card
Couture Creations All a Flutter embossing folder *
Tim Holtz distress inks (Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed)
Sizzix  Frame, Iron Gate die*
The label portion (cut out) of the M-Bossiblities Labels 18 embossing folder*
Splodgeaway Bountiful Butterflies mask
Miss you stamp

*denotes pressie from my friend.

So my dear friend (she put an x in the box on the coupon that said "no publicity") we have laughed together (lots of that) and we have cried together (too much of that) and been friends for the best part of 25 years. Here's to another 25 ........... but more laughing in the second half eh !!! Enjoy the rest of your trip and hope it doesn't get nippy around your trossachs.

I will be back on the 1st June with a card I have been unable to blog yet as the recipients birthday is on 1st June. Hope you will pop by to have a look.

    Great card for your kind and generous friend - nice gifts she knows you well! I love the way you have used your distress inks really nice.

    Not certain it is sunny in Scotland not what others are saying! It certainly isn't sunny here I have the heating back on and am not getting up until its warmer! Brrr! 20 degrees and sunny tomorrow! Whoopee Do!

  2. An assembly of "Bits" now your talking my language!!!!
    Great card I love the use of that mask, and the wonderful Die.

    Don`t know where in Scotland they are getting sun!!! Not over my house anyway it`s raining here.

    Ang. where exactly are you based??? you have had me thinking since you said your Hubby had been in Cupar, Fife and Glasgow.......nosey or what!!!!

  3. Thanks all for the lovely comments. I did provide a list of options for my friend as she is not a crafter. She is a fabulous gardener as well as being one of the most unselfish people I know.
    Patricia, I live in the West Midlands so nowhere exotic Im afraid. Hubby was in Scotland for meetings and my chum is near Inverness and keeps telling me she's having a sunny holiday. X

  4. Hi Heather lovely card very different.Sunshine also in Ireland.


  5. Ang, your card is stunning, love those dies you have used.
    So you live in the west midland - are you going to the NEC in November by any chance, Patricia, Kate and I are going the Thursday - Saturday would be nice to meet up if you were.
    As for sun shine we are having some this evening just to get me started on my holiday.
    We will be looking in to see what every one has made while we are away. Techno grannies that is us iPads are great for this.
