Hello Dear Friend

Hi crafters! I went back into my background stash for the start of this card.  I selected a piece of pixied card that used Lava Red and Purple Violet Pixie Powders.  I decided to do the panels in silhouette so I cut the Button Flower panel, the Moonflower panel and their foliage panels into a piece of  black card.  I backed the entire piece with the pixied card.  I cut a small white frame using the Double Pierced Squares.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it and seated it in the centre of the card so the pixied background showed through.  I cut the Hello Dear Friend sentiment in black and glued it imnto the frame.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

I lost my job few months back and there was no way to get income for my family, things was so tough and I couldn't get anything for my children, not until a met a recommendation on a page writing how Mr Bernie Wilfred helped a lady in getting a huge amount of profit every 6 working days on trading with his management on the cryptocurrency Market, to be honest I never believe it but I took the risk to take a loan of $1000. and I contacted him unbelievable and I was so happy I earn $12,500 in 6 working days, the most joy is that I can now take care of my family I don't know how to appreciate your good work Mr. Bernie Doran God will continue to bless you for being a life saver I have no way to appreciate you than to tell people about your good services.
