Shabby Chic

Hi guys,
well I'm here, enjoying this horrible winter weather again, 
am I glad we went down south and got some sun,
we had a couple of days of twenty three degrees!!!!
forgot that still existed lol,
my neighbour said it's been like winter all this last week and she's had the heating on again!!!

as you know we went to Center Parcs and we saw about 20 deer just roaming around, I looked up one night having my tea and their were two on the path, so cute!

Well I'd better get on with my card he he,
Over at Basic Grey the theme this fortnight is for 
Shabby Chic
Did my title give you a clue???
This is my card Penilla did my blog look from,
as you guessed I made it before my hols lol,
Tilda is coloured using Distress inks, the cardboard she's sat on was from an old box which I stripped the back layer off the painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint,
Tilda is finished off with glitter as are the flowers but I've yet to master you being able to see this!
I've used up that gorgeous lace which I love and so must get some more,
My flowers are from WOC,the pearl strings are from Hobby craft, and the leaf I found in my stash, the gorgeous butterfly is of course a Prima one,

I think I'm finally getting the hang of this cheesecloth stuff lol,
the main card shape is a Spellbinders Grand Nestie, scalloped circle,

Pollycraft Monday ~ lace/charm/pearls

The pixie cottage ~ here comes the sun ~ (I WISH) lol

love and hugs L:iz xx
