Hellooooooo there, how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action its that busy time of year for everyone isn't it. I am also in the process of having a complete new look ready for 2014 lol, I'm going lighter with my hair, the first stage has been done..........just got to wait for the second stage & then its getting quite a lot chopped off :0/ With my hair been so dark it takes a bit get it light.
Anyhoos I have soooooooo many images coloured up that I thought I better make a start in getting them onto cards & what better time then when you have new papers ;0)
Yes I've used the gorgeous new Maja Design 'Vintage Frost Basics' the one I've used is '3rd December' & I've used both sides. They have also been inked with Walnut & machine stitched.
The candle is a Marianne die & I added Shabby White fran-tage to it. The smaller flowers are from WOC, the larger one is 'Kaisercraft' all the flowers also had Stardust Stickles added to them. I've also added 'Birch Pine Cones'. I was gonna add some gesso to them but IRL they look gorgeous in their real colour against the white flowers.
As always I decorated inside, the doily is from my stash & the tree & frame are Marianne dies.
Excuse my thumb in the pic lol, I put Minnie Mouse decals on my nails a few nights ago, Payton is Minnie Mouse mad...........lol.
The seam binding & lace are from my stash, I made a double bow with the seam binding & added the gorgeous 'Bark Star' to the centre. I also added a wee bit of Shabby White Frantage to it.
The gorgeous stamp is 'Peaceful Tilda' from the new Winter Wonderland collection & I coloured her with distress ink markers & added stickles to her candle flame. I also masked her to add the
Magnolia Christmas text behind her.
I also added my favourite 'Snowflake' die this year by Joy Craft & also the tree die by Marianne Design, both have been embossed with Shabby White Fran-Tage. The scalloped pearls are from WOC.
Well thats it from me for today. I will try to get around tonight if I have time. I have my grandaughter staying tonight as Arjay has to go for an operation early in the morning. He needs an operation to put in hips in place or he will never walk. He has then got to wear a body cast for 5-6 months, poor little fella.
Will let you know how the operation goes my lovelies.
Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by & for your continued support mmwah.
Squishy hugs to you all xxxxxxxxxxxx
