Good morning everyone and welcome to my two new followers, thank you both for taking the time to view my blog.
I am starting to get excited here........... off to Egypt on Tuesday morning for 10 days of sun, sea, sand and................................ snorkling :)
We're going back to the fab hotel we stayed at in May (Sunrise Holiday Village - Hurghada) it was so good we wanted to stay there again. In May we did the cruise and stay so were only at the hotel for a week. This is going to be a real chill out holiday. We had hoped to spend a couple of days in Cairo to see the Sphinx and go to the museum but it's so politically unsettled we are giving that a miss.
I will have a couple of post's appearing while I am gone for DT challenges but I apologise now for not commenting on the beautiful creations you make while I am away.
On to today's card which was made for a friend at work to give to his niece, fortunately he loved it, hope she does to. It's one of my original LOTV stamps 'Times to Treasure' and it's always been a favourite of mine.
It is cut using SB squares, and heart squares, and banner. Flowers from WOC. Leaves are a MS punch and ribbon, lace and gems from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated.
They are coloured with Promarkers (must start writing down which one I use) and I added the clouds with stormy sky distress ink applied with ink dusters.
The inside reflected the front.
When I was asked to make this card I smiled as I thought oooooo I have an inked topper ready to go that I can use :)
Thought you might like to see how much my colouring skills have changed in the past 6 months, or have they?
Can't believe how flat and wishy washy this one looks and at the time I thought it was good :)
I am entering the following challenges:-
Thank you all for taking the time to look at my card. Hope you all have a great weekend and that the weather is kind to you over the next 2 weeks as I soak up the sunshine :)
