Hello everyone I'm running so late with this, I thought I had done &......well clearly I hadnt so I'm gonna crack on. I have a peek sneak of something sooooooo cute at the bottom of the post though, so why not hang around lol.
Ok so my lovelies we have a brand new challenge over on Lovely Hanglar & Sweet Magnolia & the challenge is.......drum roll please......
......so it can be lace, ribbon, seam binding, pom pom trim, organza roses....you et the drift dont you ;-)
I had hoped I would have a different project ready but I didnt but thankfully had this one as back-up which I made a few weeks ago.
The image I masked & coloured a couple of months ago so it was nice to finally put it on a card.
The stamps I used are Magnolia 'Tilda With Flower In Her Pocket' from the Country Girl collection & I masked her with Magnolia 'Little Westie With Flower' I left the Westie off though & just used the flowers, again this stamp is from the Country Girl collection. I got these from Swedish House Crafts.
They were coloured with distress ink refills & then I cut the image out using Gummiapan Stitched Circle dies.
I made a tag using the Surfboard tag....I've had this for about a year & finally used it for the first time, shocking I know....I have quite a few like this, some still in their packets...yes I'm bowing my head in shame right now :-(
The words are from a Tim Holtz pad. I made the tag so it can swivel out to write something on the plain one underneath.
I think the brad is My Minds Eye........maybe...
Of course as always I decorated the inside. The paper is Maja Design Summer Crush & I have machine stitched all layers, added gesso here & there & added Gummiapan Stitched Circle dies to the centre.
I added a paper straw saying Happy Birthday at the top using a Whimsy stamp & matching die.
I also added seam binding & I coloured it myself a long long time ago. Button, doilies & lace are form my stash.
I used Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Box Lacing Coffee at the side & the leaves are also Magnolia dies. Flowers are WOC.
Please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations & leave them all some love, seriously I work with such talented girlies & feel darn proud of them & lucky to work with them.
Ok do you want to see my sneak peak of something soooooo darn cute....of course you do, well feast your eyes on my new puppy. Only 2 weeks old at the minute, we met them for the first time on Monday 16th & they will be ready on 1st December.
This is Mummy with her 12 babies, yes 12........OMW how did she do that.....where the heck did she hide them all as she is not that big. There is not one runt & she is a fantastic mum & greeted us so so well. She came out to greet us & we stroked her, she really is beautiful.
Me holding my new baby, isn't he adorable....I cant wait til he comes home. I didnt want to put him down lol & when I got home Poppy sniffed where I had held him for ages.
I went to my best friends house after for a couple of hours & stroked her dogs but Poppy didnt even bother with their scent.....just the pups scent.
We got first pic out of all these babies & I picked this handsome fell, first one to have a collar as well. The lady who owns this gorgeous mum & litter sent me this photo to my phone yesterday, I love him already.
I picked him out just by a photo on Friday, I knew as soon as I saw him amongst all his brothers & sisters. Thankfully I did as the first lady to go on Saturday picked mine & desperately wanted him but the lovely lady said he was reserved & while she was disapointed she picked another gorgeous little fella.
I do have a name ready for him but I will tell you that when he comes homes.........just incase I change my mind (doubt it though lol)
Ok well its actually 3.48 am & I've not been sleep yet as I have an upset daughter who has not been well for a few days & other reasons why I'm up which I will not bore you with as I think I have babbled waaaaayyyy to much as it is lol.
Thank you for stopping by & if you stayed to the end well done you lol.
Tatty bye lovelies, take care & enjoy your day what ever you are doing.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
