My Crafty Heart DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I wasn't around over the weekend I spent the weekend with my family & my youngest son's mate stopped on Saturday night as well. On saturday afternoon though for those that are not on my facebook, I got to have my very first cuddle of my grandson wooooooo was seventh heaven. He's doing really well & I will post some updated pics this week.

Anyhoo's I have a christmas card today with goodies from My Crafty Heart & another of the new LOTV these!!
I've used my favourite christmas pad from last year, only have a couple of pages left so need more of this!! The paper is the gorgeous MME 'Lost & Found Christmas', love the vintage-y colours in this pad.

I inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched all the papers. The gorgeous snowflake border os of course MB 'Frostyville Border' which was from MCH but I cant seem to find it :0(

This is a christmas card that I will be sending out so I've kept it minimal to put in an envelope to make it cheaper. It will be cheaper as normally all of my cards go in boxes lol.
As I didnt decorate inside I added a sentiment & stamped the image, well half of it lol, in Brown Memento.

The ribbon is East Of India ribbon & I soooooo love this one, its a lovely fabric ribbon, its lush!!

The stamp is called 'Christmas Goodies' & I coloured her with Distress Markers.........I just love seeing LOTV images done with distress inks/markers. I also added Stardust Stickles on the fur & the snow in places.
For the frame for the image I used one of my favourite dies, Spellbinders 'Floral Oval'.

I added MB 'Snowflake Corner' & added Stickles & dots using a Pearl Pen. The flowers I made using my Marianne die. The sentiment is LOTV 'Christmas Circular Sentiments' which I've had for ages & really are fab to have.

Well thats it from me, a simple christmas card...........simple for me anyway lol. Pop on over to
 My Crafty Heart to see what other fabby items Teresa has in her store. The offer of the week at the moment is £1 off all Prima Mixed Media Dolls, I have to say these are fabulous!! Also there are reductions on the 'Die-Versions' dies, so another excuse to go shopping, off you pop ;0)

Thank you for popping in it means a lot.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
