More Annabel and Good News for Sam

Glad you liked my last post , this stamp is from the same set "Annabel " by Kanban. I've coloured with pro and flex makers in shades of mint green and brown.

The papers are Linen closset. I die cut a memory box die in the same paper/card and glued it flat to the paper, it gives a lovely dimension, like embossed paper, I'll be doing that again for sure. I've added pretty buttons and ribbons from hobbycraft and a sentiment , part of a docraft clear stamp set.

challenges entered :
stampavie and more : lots of layers
Papercrafting journey : bingo ( mine was , sentiment/buttons/flowers)
chocolate coffee cards : buttons and bows

The lady from the council rang today , Sam has got the  apprenticeship  , it's in Guilden Sutton outside Chester but she says they will find a lift for him and to start a week Monday. I'm so pleased for him.
Very dull (hense the rubbish pic) here and still very cold, not a nice dog walk huddled up especially with Hudson lagging behind sniffing every thing in sight.
have a good day and happy crafting. janex

Congratulations to Sam on securing this apprenticeship. Hope all goes well for him in the job and the travel arrangements. I bet that's given a boost to the whole family - not just Sam.
Your card is delightful, gorgeous image, love the colour scheme and the die cuts for dimension is a brilliant idea.
