My Lovely Friends

Thursday, 15 January 2015


Hello everyone, how are we all today? 
I have a bag to show you today that I have decorated, I do lurve to do these bags & I've always got them in my stash.
I have been asked a few times where I get mine from & I get them from Amazon, I get these & also these. Of course there are quite a few different sizes.

Ok so my bag today features a Prima Doll stamp, I've neglected these for ages, so thought it was time they came out of their box ;-)
I stamped just the main body without the legs for this bag & coloured her with distress re-inkers & markers.

This is the back of the bag, I've kept it quite simple at the back focusing on the awesome sentiment. The sentiment is of course LOTV ' Friendship Quotables'.

Have you seen the scrummy laces I've used. The bottom one is a new one at LLC, its Lace 'Marie Therese 85mm' in Dusky Pink.........soooooooo gorgeous. The top one is 'Cluny Lace with Threaded Ribbon 30mm'.

I've added scraps of lace to a hanger charm. The seam binding is from my stash. The pearls are Melissa Frances.

The papers I've used are Maja Design Coffe In The Arbour 'Raspberry Lemonade 12x12' & the top layer is the same brand but sheets from the Coffee In The Arbour 6x6 pad. All have been inked with Pumice Stone & machine stitched. I've used WOC flowers & Kort & Godt Rolled Roses, all flowers except centre one are from here at LLC. The chipboard flower at the back is from my stash.

Well thats it form me I've got Natalie's Occupational Therapist coming at 10 this morning to measure her bed for a new mattress. She is crying all hours of the night so we are going to try an Airflow Mattress......fingers crossed it works. 
Then at 12 I'm at the gym with my youngest son as he is at work at 4 so we going early today.

Ok enough of my babble, thank you so much for stopping by. See you all soon my lovelies.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

I'm not too keen on the Prima dolls, but this one's beautifully coloured and goes so well together with the lace. Lovely embellished as well.
