Thank You

Welcome to my new followers, Janis of Craftingallday Creations and Chasity at Blue Cottage Farmhouse. Thank you for following me.

Today's card was quick to make, using just two NBUS dies and some Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I used a Sue Wilson background die from the Canadian collection. The die comes with an additional part which goes in the middle, so an all over daisy pattern can be made.  As I wanted to add a Sue Wilson 'Thank You' die cut, I left the middle of the purple card blank and just used one die from the set.  White Nuvo Crystal drops were put in the middle of each daisy and the card was finished.  All I had to do was leave the Crystal Drops to dry overnight.

Hi Liz,
I always liked that die and have never got round to buying.
So you can emagine what my next buy is after seeing this lovely card.
I love the wonderful colour you have used and your Nuvo drops are excellent.
Such a very great sentiment die too as it goes so well with the design.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hey, Liz! Your card is gorgeous! You have an awesome collection of dies! I'm wondering what makes this the Canadian collection - I need to go check it out (since I'm in Canada, very curious now!)

Carol L said...

With my favorite color being purple, this one just floats my boat perfectly! I LOVE this one!!

Liz said...

I'm not sure why it's called the Canadian collection. If you discover why, please let me know. :-) xx

That really is the hardest part to leave to dry and not test along the way! Ask me how I know that one! Lol. Lovely card and a gorgeous rich colour. Hugs Mrs A.
