I started this card with the Wee Girl Image from Lilly of the Valley. I mounted the image on to a Spellbinder Captivating Squares die cut. I used some matching dotty card from Anna Marie Designs,
cut out another matt using one of the middle sized dies in the Grand Decorative squares, mounted the topper onto that. I took and 8 x 8 white card and matted a larger piece of the dotty card onto that, I was amazed how it matched the tea pot and cups in the image. I embossed a piece of coconut white card with Creative Expressions Pin point Checkerboard A4 folder, stuck a piece of matching blue grosgrain ribbon onto it and then added a piece of white ric rac ribbon on top. I used some foam tape to stick this layer t the base and more foam tape to adhere the focal element.
I die cut the smallest of the Spellbinders Nesting Butterflies and added a trail of Creative Expressions Pearl Swirls to the butterfly.
The opposite corner I added a few paper white roses from my stash on top of the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish Die cut out of the blue dotty card.
I haven't added a sentiment yet, I can add one to order.
I hope you like the card.
Well I have another new order, this time for a new baby card, the lady did ask if I could use a sand sculpture or ice carving theme, but after searching the internet, I came up blank unless I pay for a Sand Writing Font, which just isn't cost effective, Do I will have to get my thinking cap on, although she saw a blue one I did a year or so ago and said that would be perfect so may just go with that theme.
Well the end of the holidays is almost upon us, I can feel the anxiety creeping in, I so love having the family home, the house noisy (and messy) are almost bearable when they are all here. Paul told me he may have to go away again on Tuesday too, which really got my anxiety levels racing. It just throws things into chaos, for instance we have had to book Bella in to be Spayed on Tuesday as she has just had her first 'proper in season experience', my goodness, I would only want to experience that once! Bless her, it was like she had been possessed by a demon, her voice went super deep and super loud, it went on all day and night for the past four days! We hated seeing her suffering, although not in pain, she was clearly frustrated! its clearly not fun being a woman in any species!
Well I hope you are all going to have a peaceful sunday, for us its decorations all down and back in loft and get house back to 'normal', boy its gone quick, it really doesn't seem five minutes since we were putting the tree up!
Love and hugs to you all,
