Someone Special!

Thank goodness it is Friday and the weather is suppose to be beautiful.... I am really tired of the rain and the cool temperatures....we need some sun!
Cute Card Thursdays challenge is " Someone Special". I love doing cards for someone special. Now this card does not have a home yet but it will!

I tried to take a close up just to show you that I popped the hat on the chair. I thought it might give it that 3 demensional look! I coloured my image with copics. These are two new stamps that I just bought from Pointers, a local craft store. They are from Great Impressions.

What is a card without my matching recipe card! This recipe holds a really special spot in my heart. My grandmother gave me this one and it's a good one! I tried to give it that ol country feel.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thank-you so much for coming and visiting!

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog, and for your question, I use the colours antique linen (as a base), and walnut stain and vintage photo (not much, just a little) for the hair.
    Hugs, Camilla.
