Feeling blue...........

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Hope you have better weather than we do, its absolutely pouring it down :0( Still the plants & lawns need a good watering ;0)

I'm here with a card that I did, I think nearly 2 weeks ago but completely forgot to blog it........dont know where my mind is these days lol. I'm not really feeling blue but my card is full of the blues ;0)
I finally inked this little lady up when I got my new markers..........
I've used 'Blue Cross Tilda' I love anything to do with crosses & angels so this was my first Magnolia stamp in the basket when this collection was released lol.

The ribbon is East Of India ribbon from my stash & I'm not sure where the coin charm is from, I cant remember. Lace is also from my stash.

I love all products by Melissa Frances including her Vellum Envelopes & Tags. However I decided to make my own Vellum Envelope & use up the abundance of vellum I have lol. I made the envelope, I scalloped the top edges I also added Shabby Blue Fran-Tage & embossed it with a butterfly folder. Then added a Magnolia tag. Quite pleased for my first attempt ;0)

The 3 blue flowers are from WOC & the rolled flowers I used a Marianne die & popped Blue Pearls inside. I've also added Gesso to the flowers.

This Tilda is of course from the Special Moments 2013 collection & I coloured her with Tim Holtz distress markers. Cannot remember the colours as this was coloured when I first had my markers so this was a practice one lol. 
The frame is Spellbinder 'Floral Oval' & I added 'Shabby Blue' Fran-Tage & also inked the edges with walnut distress ink.

As always inside is decorated. The gorgeous papers I've used is my favourite of all paper makes....
Maja Design - 'Vintage Spring' - these are from my 6x6 pad. I distressed them a wee bit & inked the edges with walnut distress ink. I also added the beautiful new Joy Crafts 'Butterfly Border' I lurve butterflies so have to get new butterfly dies & this one is a beauty!! This too also got the fran-tage treatment ;0)

Ooooh have you seen the new Magnolia Sea Breeze release Maggie fans? Mine came through my letter box on friday........oooh as soon as I saw Sir Stamp A Lot on the envelope I was beaming.....well once I had chased hubster round the kitchen table to get it off him lol. 

I also got new stamps yesterday from a different company so its not just new magnolia images you will be seeing for those of you that are not Magnolia fans ;0)

Well I'm off to do some hopping before my grandaughter arrives so will see as many as I can soon & the rest laters. Thank you soooooo much for your lovely comments especially on my Prima doll tag in the post below, it really means a lot.

Oh before I forget I've had a few emails asking me if I'm selling my copics, I am NOT selling them or giving up on them, I want to be able to colour with all different mediums my next one will be to master Prisma pencils. I love the vibrancy of copics however sometimes I want a soft delicate look & nothing does that like distress inks/markers.

Lotsa squishy hugs Vicky xxxxxxxxxx
