My Lovely Friends,

Tuesday, 27 December 2011

I said I'd be back,

And here I am I am lol,

had a lovely Christmas with the family, loads of fun and laughter,
Tegan got loads of stuff, she's one popular little girl!

I made a card for Simon's girlfriend using the colours over at MDU,
I had done all my Christmas ones but loved the colours so did a Birthday one instead,
the colours are red, cream and gold,

Shock horror not a hint of cheesecloth or grunge in sight lol,
I felt like a change and they do say it's as good as a rest don't they! and who am I to argue lol,
the bottom edge is made with a Tim Holtz alterations Border die ( ornate),

my papers are machine sewn and slightly distressed with my distress tool, the postcard stamp is by Lily of the valley,
 I've used the gorgeous Valerian flourish border on the right and is by Memory box,
Tilda is coloured with copics and cut out with nestabilities,
Closer view of the postcard, I inked this in memento rich cocoa,
the cream ribbon, yes it is there is from Sarah at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

My gorgeous tiny labels are from Tracy at dies to die for and are whimsy love mini tickets and I got the matching die cut that cuts them too,
I ran out of my favourite colouring card for copics, so the blending didn't work as good as it normally does, thankfully I got some for Christmas he he,
Flowers are WOC,
the gorgeous red flourish was sent by Tracy in my order and I love it and it went perfect with this card, I must find out what it's made with!

Because the card is shaped at the bottom I have used some more of the paper and decorated the inside too

Gold gems and heart ribbon  from stash,

Magnolia Down Under ~ Red, Cream and Gold

will check later for any more,
I've got the lovely house work this morning, hubby's back at work, 
I'd much rather be shopping lol,

will catch you later,
