Across The Miles

Hello everyone how are you all? Hope you are all having a fabby weekend. Sorry I havnt been blogging I had my procedure done on Thursday & I ended up a bit ill from it.........tbh I'm not sure if I picked a bug up.
Anyway I'm here to post a card I made before I went in hospital. I inked up another one of my LOTV christmas stamps, I lurve this one.
The gorgeous papers are MME 'Vintage Christmas', soooooo love this pad!! I've inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched them.

The christmas tree is a Marianne die & I covered it with Snowtex.

All or most of the flowers are from WOC. The pearls, lace & ribbon are from my stash.


The gorgeous cute LOTV image is called 'Festive Post' & I coloured it with distress markers & added Stardust Stickles to the fur & the top of the letter box........its to look like snow ;0)
The sentiment 'Across The Miles' is also LOTV.
Inside is decorated to compliment the front. The 'Lampost' is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey die.

Well thats it from me I have my family coming for tea. Megan was going to invite us but Payton is poorly so I didnt want her to have to worry about cooking for us. So as it was last minute I'm doing pork & cider with dumplings, potatoes & veg...........I dont mind saying so myself its yummy & its my own recipe :0)

Will be round later for a good catch up my lovelies.
Thank you soooooo much for stopping by mmwah

Such a cute card hun! Love your colours.
Hope you are feeling better after the hospital stay hun. I HATE those places!! I'm in our local one three times a week at the mo - only for a quick blast in the light tube, but it's still a hospital and smells like it.
Fingers crossed things start to improve for you!
Love and hugs,
Teri xx
