Good Morning Ladies, my blog was playing up this morning didnt want to post my photo, and after five attempts it eventually gave me five photos, anyway Ive now hopefully got it sorted and weve only got the one. The update on hubbys day is he enjoyed himself and has gone back again today though he seems to be having problems with his steelcap boots they are making his ankles hurt I image hes going to be in a lot of pain when he gets home today. I gather his job was rubbing down the paintwork on the level crossing gates ready for painting, as I said its all volunteering jobs and anything goes, I carnt see him rubbing down paintwork at home that seems to be left for me to do.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "Let get Sentimental" and Stampin for the Weekends "Anything goes", Ive used this lovely image of Tilda going of on holiday with her case, and Ive used my copic pens to colour her then used my Label Die No.9 to cut her out and drew around the edge of the die for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash, this has also been cut out with a small die and the mount was cut and mounted across the back of the sentiment.
The card is a 7"x 7" white card thats been created into an easel card, and the papers Ive used are from Kay Millers "Wings" downloads, a very pretty lilac paper with loads of butterflies and flowers on, this was used on both of the sides of the easel card, and on top of this is another paper from the same set a pretty yellow pattern with circles on, for the inside Ive created a strip and for the front a square and with my Martha Stewart border and corner punch Ive cut around the edges of both and layed them up on top. Ive then used a piece of ribbon and on top of this a strip of lace with another narrower ribbon threaded through the holes and attached around the middle of the front mount, on top of this is the mounted stamped image, and the sentiment was stuck in the centre of the strip on the inside.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray from roses and heather and stuck to the card with silicone glue, the last thing is the three gems down the side on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
