Hello all you lovely peeps, how are you all? Well its certainly getting cold now, tbh it seems to have took ages to get cold..........would you believe we still have our summer quilt on & up until the last week we were still having the ceiling fan on as the bedroom still felt warm. I do now need to go out & buy a winter quilt.......we brought a new bed a couple of months ago & its King Sized, with a poppy up tv in it. So now I need buy a bigger winter quilt now :0/
Ok so I have a card that I made tbh this was actually the first one I made when I started crafting again, however I only finally put the sentiments on yesterday lol.
Using lots of goodies from my favourite shop Live & Love Crafts of course...........
For the shape I used a Go-Kreate die XXL Square Frame Frilly #6.
This is actually made for a dear family member who lives very far from us :0(
The tree is cut out using a Marianne die & I covered it with White Flower Soft, I love the look as its like its covered with soft fresh snow ;0)
Added 'Winter Gloves' charm, which I also dipped in 'Snowtex'. I also added my favourite 'Tulle Pleat Trim' & added 'Shabby Pearl Rose Organza Trim' on top.
The image is one I coloured last year for my christmas cards, I actually coloured the image up twice as I enjoyed doing the first one lol. However I only got to use one of the images, so this was in my image box, but unfortunately dont have the colours.
The image is 'Friendship Is The Greatest Gift' & is a digi from Wee Stamps, I lurve Sylvia Zet's images. You can also get this in rubber stamp form through Whimsy as well.
You can see the flowers soft on the tree better in this pic ;0) The papers I've used are.......in a min Vixster is trying remember......Oh wait they are Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics '1st December' & the bottom layer is '18th December' from the same collection. As always inside is decorated & all layers are machine stitched.
I added corrugated card under the image painted up with 'Gesso'. The sentiments on both from LOTV. The rolled flowers are 'Kort & Godt' & the middle flower is WOC 30mm. The leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns' die.
Okie doke that is it from me but before I go I thought I would tell you that Sandra has lovely new gift vouchers in her store................
......you can even choose what design to have on them.......
.....there is even a Happy Birthday one. Perfect for adding into a card for a special someone who loves the Vintage & Shabby Chicness that Live & Love Crafts has to offer.
Ok I'm off now to cook tea as my washer repair man has just left, he's got to come back next week with new parts......ggrrr. Thankfully its still useable & thank goodness for extended warranties as apparently its a big job & he's got take all my washer apart :0(
Thank you for stopping by it really means a lot. Take care especially if you are having these awful winds & snow, we dont have the snow yet but do have the winds.
Lotsa huggles Vicky xxxxxxxxx
