Blue & Grey

Hello everyone how are you all? Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
I've been really poorly with an awful bug these last few days & apart from half an hour saturday morning to do a few things with my lappy I've not touched it all weekend, but ive been getting lots of headaches with the bug as well :-( I've barely crafted this last whole week.........I'm having serious withdrawal.....maybe its not a bug at all but its actually withdrawal from not crafting lol.

Anyway I did make card before I was poorly, actually I've got a few things made but havnt been wanting to use my lappy so havn't blogged them....though some are DT work ;-)
Ok so this is a simple kinda card that had no plan except a window lol........that was it & Pion paper....
.....ok I know it doesnt quite look simple but it is.......sort of ;-)
Now when you hear blues & greys you think dreary dont you......well Pion Design make sure its far from dreary with these pretty papers from the Greeting's From The North Pole collection.

The window is a Marianne Design die & underneath on the sill I added more leaves form matt silver cardstock from my stash & a snowflake button. I added a pearl to the centre of the button & the little dots are done with pearl pens.

So I've had a play with the foamiran.........only a little though as I was scared I would ruin my iron lol.......so today hubster went & brought a cheap iron just for my craft room lol. This I didnt do too much with to be honest, the blue I wanted to lighten so I used florist spray to tone it down & just heated it a little with my heat gun. The white I used on the iron just a little. I have made 2 flowers but all I've had time watch is 1 video on flower making & then it was a big poppy.......so once I'm feeling better I will play & experiment properly on my own.
The centre is made up with a silver pomegranate & silver stamens.

I added a layers of lace across the card & added pearls dots.........kinda got carried away with those lol.
All the leaves were made with Tim HOltz Holiday Greens dies, all were cut in matt silver cardstock & white cardstock. I also added white pomegranate apples & bow made with ribbon which I melted with a heatgun.

As always I've decorated inside. All papers were machine stitched & distressed a little bit.
Ooh I've also added white & grey berries in with the poinsettia at the top, nearly forgot about those little beauties. 

Well thats it from me as my headache is coming back....wish this bug would bu**er off lol.

You can get most of these supplies from Noor Design UK.

Thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
