My Lovely Friends,

Yeah! not christmas lol,

Hi peeps,
Are you all ready for the big day?
we still have snow about ten inches deep where it's not been trudged through, it looks gorgeous but is causing havoc lol,
the card I've got to show you today is using one of the new Magnolia stamps that came last week, I was so excited as I didn't know they were due yet, they are gorgeous, and I just couldn't wait to stamp them up lol, I was in a distress ink colouring mood, (what no copics) lol, and really enjoyed the relaxing effect of blending the image and background lol,

The lights a bit full on on this picture which is taking the true colours away a little, that's what winter does when you've to use a day light ha ha,
the circle is again the gokreate large one and Ive made it into an easel style,
the balloons at the side are stamped using two colours of distress inks, cut out then diamond glaze added, then a wire stem added for the tail, 
papers are Tim Holtz, shabby chic, I've loved this book of papers and must get some more,

The colours are a little better on this picture, although I have distressed behind her with two colours and I don't know if you can see that very well, more practise needed with my camera lol, the flower is made up of white papers covered with DI'S and scrunched up then silver glimmer mist is added too, the blue pearl brad has a silver edge too, 
the flower is a Tim Holtz die and looks better in RL than it does on here lol,
the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the circle is a Marianne die,
the leaves are silver honest and are a MS punch too,
A silver bow, white feather, machine stitching, star dust glitter glue and silver liquid pearl finishes it off,

Totally Tilda ~ Easel card
Hope your all having a lovely weekend, back tomorrow with my DCD, DT card,

Hi Liz, How fab is this card - you are really showing a flare your cards - beautiful, so much to look at and blends so perfectly.
The snow is only about 3 inches here but it's taking its toll on getting out, mind you with 3 out of 5 of us having a stinking cold, I'd rather stay in and snug up - mind you the little one wants cuddling all the time.
Hugs Sarahx
