A hug in an envelope.

Morning peeps!!
How is everyone today? good I hope.
Little Mo is much better and of to school today. He has missed his fabby teacher so will be pleased to see her today. She is so lovely.
This little gorjuss party princess card is one I made for a person I recently met online. She is having a really sad time at the moment and I wanted to send her a little bit of something.
It is so hard when you don't know someone very well to make a choice on an image so I went for this gorjuss girl. She is so sweet and makes me smile so I am hoping it will do the same for Mandy.
I stamped her in rich cocoa memento ink and I am so pleased with how soft she came out.
The punched border was lovely to play with as I added a little bit of blue stitching  to tie in the colours on the paper.
Her dress and teddy's dress is paper pieced to match the backing paper ( which was a lovely bargain from T K Maxx, a huge pack of it for £9.00 in their sale!!) I think it is memory makers as it matches a little 6x6 book I have had for a while.
I made the sentiment on my computer. I punched it out and added a little heart charm.
Sorry about the picture, the days are so gloomy here still with not a lot of sun peeking through so this one was the best I could get before I mailed it off!!
