Chalk talk card

Today is the end of my wonderful Christmas holiday in Finland. We have had such a great time, seeing so many of my friends and family. It has been quite an exceptional holiday to be honest, as I usually don't get a chance to see so much people but this time I feel like I have really caught up with so many. Unfortunately, circumstances conspired against some meetings with life events and winter colds intervening, but there will be other times and other happy meetings. I have seen so many old colleagues and celebrated their successes and so many friends with so much to catch up on. I have seen baby bellies and new apartments. This will keep me going when I head home to my somewhat lonelier existence in the UK. We will hopefully be back in the summer for a stint at the summerhouse, and next winter for a skiing holiday in northern Finland.

This card has just been forgotten in my drafts folder, I made it quite a while ago. There is no exciting story behind it. I was browsing through my hoarded crafting papers and really liked the colour combo on this Stampin' Up Designer Sheet Paper. I stamped the Chalk Talk "A little something for a very special someone" stamp in Daffodil delight on white cardstock, and stamped it again in Pool Party and fussycut the "something" banner. Quick and easy, a card that can be used for many occasions.
