Ruthies surprise.




































About a year ago, Deborah Nolan, arranged for a group of card makers from the Hero Arts flickr group to start a card shower for Ruthie, one of the group who was unwell. Deborah is such a wonderful organised person and she arranged for Ruthie to receive a card twice a week for 9 months and even her adult children got some cards too. To keep our identities secret and to keep her guessing we all took a fairy name as a pseudonym. My name was Feather Goblinwand and I posted my card so it would arrive around 28th April.
I am pleased to say that Ruth is doing much better now and Deborah thought that  it was time to reveal our identities.
This is the card I made using two of my all time favourite Hero Arts stamps, the beautiful Heart winged butterfly and Antique Brocade background.  The butterfly is stamped on acetate and I added some glitter for sparkle.

Have a good week.
Hugs

Hi Sally! How wonderful of Deborah to organise this, how totally super to keep it so secretive for so long! And how amazingly beautiful your card is! Those beautiful pinks, the lovely embossing and the butterfly, need I say more!
