I mentioned yesterday that February is a busy card-making month for me, here are another couple I have made this past week.
First up I have one I made for Andrea. Andrea is one of my special ladies from the shop and has recently celebrated one of the milestone birthdays.

I used Melissa Frances papers and lots of lovely flowers, the crocheted one was one from either Anita or Nicki, who both made me lots of flowers, they are all now mixed up and in one tin, so I can't remember which of my lovely friends is responsible for this particular one but I am grateful for them all, so thankyou girls xxx

I kept the inside simple with a stamped verse and some delicate stamped detailing around the edge of the insert.

It was also my granny's birthday on the 13th, she turned 96 bless her heart !

The image is a digi one and the sentiment computer generated, the papers are from a DCWV luxury stack and are beautifully pearlescent.

I added a little touch of stickles on the bouquet of flowers.

For my birthday Margaret gave me a gorgeous gift bag filled with quote books and note books. She knows me well, I love quotes and reading, I enjoy words fullstop but there is a special kind of magic when they are put together in quotes.
Quotes make beautiful and unusual sentiments in cards and interesting journalling for scrapbook pages, they are inspiring on many levels and have often been a catalyst for my art journalling pages, so the gift was both thoughtful and incredibly inspiring.
I have decided to share a quote from one or other of the books each time I blog.

In every out thrust headland,
In every curving beach,
In every grain of sand, 
There is a story of the earth
