Need A Hug?

Well, would you look at this - two posts in a row, ha ha!  I have just successfully managed to transfer all my picture files from Toad's desktop, via a USB, to my laptop (don't worry, I didn't delete the original files) so I am all ready to blog from my craft space again!

Let's start with a card that I made for a friend who has been an absolute rock to me over the past couple of years.  I ought to say that she is a distance friend, as we haven't met yet, but she knows more about me than most of my local friends, and she still likes me, so how cool is that?!  I'm not going to name her, for fear of embarrassment, but if she is reading this she will know who she is and how much I treasure her.

So, the stamped image is Heidi Needs a Hug from Stamping Bella
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and a scribble of Polychromos for her hair
Sentiments are from My Favorite Things
The stitched cloud die is from Lil' Inkers
and the papers are from a retired LOTV/Raspberry Road pad

What shall I do with the rest of my Sunday then?  I need to finish my Father's Day card, a couple of birthday cards, cook dinner and, most importantly, park myself in front of the TV in time for the Monaco Grand Prix!

Hope you are having a wonderful day

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

(bet you have missed this little chap too)

Do ya know what, I'll wager that your friend absolutely loved this card when she received it. I'll also bet she feels exactly the same about you. And for a hat trick, I'll bet that the gorgeous card is still in pride of place on her sideboard. Lovely card hon, and fab shading. xx
