Romantic Dreamer

Good evening my sweeties how are you all this evening? I hope you've all had a fab weekend.
I've had a very painful one so I'm so so sorry if I'm a tad behind on my commenting but I promise to catch up in the morning.
I ordered all the new Sassy's would think I would finish inking the ones I had first but no not me.... So I thought I would at least make a start I cant bear the sobbing anymore lol.
Tonight I have used one of a couple you get the girl & the boy in this one & I just think they are lush. I've kinda gone with a different sort of theme tonight......well I dont want you getting bored now lol.
Now I havn't actually made this to go in any challenge I didnt take my lappy out with me so I was just going with the flow & doing what came to mind.
This is 'Romantic Dreamer' who also comes with 'Lost In Thought' of course you can get them from

The flower I made myself just out of Aida fabric, I have a big picnic type basket full of the stuff in all colours & thought it was about time I tried to use it for something.....I started to do cross-stitch when my dad died Craig brought me the complete sets of threads & a load of fabric & didnt quite keep me engrossed fact my nintendo DS did more for me lol. The pearly gemmy thing in the corner I got for crimbo & the button on the flower  & doily is from my stash.

The lace is from Wild Orchid & the ribbon is seam binding is was white but I distressed it coloured it & put some wording on for good measure lol. I got an e-mail yesterday asking me if the seam
 binding is the bias binding used for hemming? No it is not as usually that is linen where this is much softer & you can do more with it. The link for this beautiful beading is here or there is another link which I was given by a fab blogging buddy...thank you sweetie where you can buy it in rolls which I think is fab, mine came the other day I was good tho & just ordered 3 can get it here they are based in America but postage is relatively quick.

Here she is close-up, she is coloured with Copics. I used E000 E00 E01 E11 R20 C7 C5 C3 C1 R27.
The sentiment is from a stamp set I got a bit ago from Sir Stamp A Lot, I stamped it out in Memento cocoa & the rose was stamped in Fired Brick distress ink. The tag was cut out using Whiff Of Joy tag die. On the reverse it has this same rose stamped & a short message simply saying 'I love you'.

The paper is Marianne Design 'Roses Are Red' from Quixotic Paperie which are just really beautiful. They were all edged with Tea Dye distress ink. The inside has also being done the same but I forgot to take a piccie but will pop it on tomorrow, I've even forgot to put my watermarks on which I will also do tomorrow lol.
Well I think thats about it I'm gonna go jump in the shower then hopefully to bed. I will have a peekskie to see what challenges this fits tomorrow. Actually it was really nice just to play with no following any particular thing & if there is no challenge fitting then its fine as I really enjoyed making this.
Thank you to everyone who commented on my butterfly card wow you blow me away with your comments I really do appreciate every single one......but I'm not telling you how many times I've read them cus you'll laugh at me......
Anyway my lovelies I will see you all tomorrow with my DT card for Crafts & Me thank you so sooo much for popping by & seeing my creation you all are truly wonderful mmwah.
