So excited writing the blog today for a couple of reasons, firstly today's card, now, self confidence is something I have struggled with for many years and I cannot count the amount of times Paul and my lovely children have said to me "wow, that's amazing" when I have all but thrown something into the bin! But I am going to say it, right here, right now.......
I love this card!!!!
It took me all of about 20 minutes on Friday evening, I made a mask if the Dragonfly and placed it on my piece of card, I then took my 'Timeless Textures ' stamp set and stamped a random selection of stamps around my masked dragonfly and it opposite corners, I used 3 different colours of ink, I then removed the mask, die cut a Dragonfly from the 'Detailed Dragonfly' Thinlets, in a pretty pink, added some 'Wink of Stella' to its wings and a few pearls to its body. That's it !!
I'm not sure what it is about it that appeals to me so much, but I really do like it, so you heard it here first! I was inspired by seeing the original if this card by a lady called Leone Shroder on Pinterest.
The other excitement is that both Brenda and I won a Die on Sue's blog.....
I won the 'Apron' die
Brenda won the Azores die......
Michele won the Celebration Cake 'papercuts' die on Sunday on John's blog and she has been chosen by Ben at Setcraft to receive a die to make an inspirational card for their Facebook page, the die was the 'Gemma' die.
Congratulations ladies, I am so happy for you all and I can't wait to see what you make with your winnings. I have to say Michele you do seem to be on a bit of a winning streak right now, maybe you should buy that Lotto ticket, if you win can you please book us somewhere nice for our retreat??! 😜
Such a bright and cheerful start to the week, it makes such a difference having happy and positive to set you up for the week, particularly on these grey and gloomy days!
Have a lovely day ladies,
Maria, your quote is very true.....There is "no place like home". Xx
Love and hugs to all,
