Chase Your Dreams

Hello friends

I love the sentiment on today's card, this is another Lindsay Mason stamp.
As mentioned, that boy of mine is going to be stocking Lindsay's stamps soon,
keep an eye on his blog for new product news.

I featured this card on The Craft Channel recently.
It uses Triple Floral and Ivy.
The decorative edging of Triple Floral is also the design used for
Oval Floral and Garden Party, I guess if you find a nice design that works... 
I'm rather in love with the Ivy die - something very therapeutic about assembling the 
leaves onto the branch.

The papers are Studio Light - My Botanic Garden.

Did I mention 'that boy of mine'??
Well he was on Facebook yesterday getting all the comments :)
We took a trip to the Royal Marsden to chat with Elliott's consultant regarding
his MRI scans. These have to be pretty regular and we are still trying to find the
best scanner to help with his claustrophobia.  We are hopefully trying one in
London within the next few months so fingers crossed.

Back to City work today, I remove my creative head and put on my
sensible office one...well I try to!

Take care friends.
Please stop by tomorrow for FDD.

    What a pretty card today, you have lots of patience with the ivy die, but it does look lovely. I love the dies you have used too.
    Sounds like the scan is moving in the right direction for Elliot which is good.
    Enjoy your day back in the office.

  10. Hi Christine, I hope your city job is going well. Never mind it will soon be time to go home !!
    I love this card, especially the triple floral die, and the papers really complement the ivy die-cuts, really lovely.
    So glad that things are going well for Elliott, fingers crossed they can find a scanner that can help with Elliott's claustrophobia, I would be exactly the same.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
