Essentially Sweet Wishes to Pam

It was supposed to be a bit of a play on words. The Title. Essentially because I've used papers from a paper stack called 'Sweet Wishes' and some cute clear stamps by PinkPetticoat both free from PaperCraft Essentials this month.
I don't normally get this one, as it's a £1 over my limit, but I do like the mag and this month's freebies were definitely worth it!
I had to make a very quick card in answer to an invitation from a second cousin of John's, Pam, who'll be eighty next week. (She doesn't look or act eighty!) Basically when he was born, she was just twenty one. She's called him 'Tuppenny' ever since! (because of his curls)
"Have you replied to Pam yet?" asked John late this afternoon, "No! Forgot!"
With less that an hour to the last post of the day, I very quickly made this card and rushed up to the Post Office. (I always seem to be chasing the Postman!) Shapes punched out using Woodware punches, coloured with Promarkers, a bit of 3D-ing, a bit of inking around the edges, candi dots fixed on with foam pads this time, hmmm... bit raised, I'll use thinner foam pads or silicone glue next time. It would've had flowers, but there was no time. I used my Quitekutz for the R.S.P.V....which I keep thinking I've spelt wrong!
*** yep, too late now, the card's gone! Thank you Tabitha! It means, (and I shall never forget now!) répondez s'il vous plaît, meaning “reply please” or "please respond" and it should read R.S.V.P. !! (oops!)

  2. Fabulous card, Lyn!! It's absolutely adorable! I love the colors, and can't believe you got it done so quickly! =D

  3. Your card is adorable! I had to look up your RSPV cause it looked funny to me (I am no English major, shoot I can hardly speak it properly myself! LOL) I found it on Wikipedia-From the French RSVP, répondez s'il vous plaît, meaning “reply please” or "please respond".

    LOL Hopefully being "80" has dulled her eyesight so she won't notice! LOL I'm 33 and need reading glasses so why not! LOL

  4. What a gorgeous card Lyn.

    Hugs Riet.xx
