A card for my sister with loads of love

Hiya everyone. This afternoon I sat and made this for my lovely sis, Sassysue,bless her I love her soooooo much., and she has been so down with the swine flu and mums birthday.Now she is queen of vintage im useless but I did try to make it a bit vintagy.Its got loads of pearls on it too and I know she loves her pearls as they are never off her neck. She said when she was likkle her sis had a pram like this in blue, now I know the blue isnt right,but its much darler in real life, it looks very light on here. I tried to age it to make it look vintagy but I dont think its worked!!! The weird thing is, I had two cream flowers on it, and could not get it how I wanted it. Then the door went and it was the postie, well what was there but a parcel from me sis, with loads of goodies including some beautiful guipure lace, and flowers including cream and blue roses!!!!!!! yes we do think alike and yes we are joined at the hip, and to me this just proved it!!!! it was just so bloomin weird. So Sis I loves you loads, and you just knew......................... didnt you...................................hope you like it, loves ya loads toots xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi June, Wow this is beautiful, your Sis will love it for sure, that pram bring's back memories. I found your Sister's Fantastic blog today and had a good old looksy at her beautiful card's, I have to follow her blog now, I don't want to miss out on any of her creation's.
Sad thing for you is she lives closer to me here in the Midland's, I bet it's hard living so far apart.

She left me a lovely comment today, Isn't she so modest, I think she should take more credit for her work, it's truly amazing...
