A Different Card For Me!!!!

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is a card that I have been wanting to make for some time!

I die cut all of the elements from pearlised star dream card stock and distressed everything 

I also made the four rolled roses, which explains the slightly different sizes he he!

I am quite pleased how it turned out, unfortunately the sun light let me down when I was photo graphing it, I will try and do more if the weather perks up.

Thanks for stopping by today. 
Take care xxx

This is for all the thoughtful ladies who have contacted me recently to see how I am coming along, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your kindness, it really means alot to me xxxx
As some of you know I suffered a badly broken leg recently and I am still recovering over four months on. I have ALOT  of metal work inside my leg and recently it has been causing me trouble, so in a months time I will be discussing with my surgeon whether to remove it all or not. I am getting about albeit it painfully, but at least I can walk again and for that I will be eternally grateful to my surgeon, who is a woman by the way he he!
So,to cut a very long story short I am probably looking at another 3 months recovery - groan. Our daughter is now home from university for the summer and she is worth her weight in gold, nothing is too much trouble and I am so proud of her finishing her first year at university, she is a chip off the old block he he!!!

Have a fab week

Good Morning Everyone

I am so excited to tell you that this is my very first DT post with the talented team at Marvelous Magnolia!!!

When Rina asked to apply to the DT call, well how could I refuse?

The wonderful sponsor this 2 week challenge are Stamp & Create, with a wonderful prize on offer!!! They stock so many beautiful items, including magnolia and Edwin stamps!

The theme for this fortnight long challenge is Vintage, I didn't really want to go with the traditional browns and beige usually associated with vintage, so chose to go with a deep pink and burgundy, with lots of distressing.

Apologies in advance as it is a bit picture heavy!

Front vintage rose papers are from my own goodies, back layer is Maja design sofiero paper. With Maja so wrapped up doohickey, with matching satin ribbon and large butterfly charm.

She is coloured with Copics and distressed with DI and shabby pink frantage.

Large pink crystal embellishment and ideology pin holding sentiment. You can also see the cheese cloth, strung pearls and guipure lace peeking out behind the image

Flowers and Berries & Pink Lace from Ribbon Girl, Live and Love Crafts & WOC!
There is also a shabby bark heart at the back and some little brown stamens peeking out too.
