Good morning folks!

Wow, what a change to the weather this morning..... I even had to photograph my card inside for the first time in ages!! Still at least the temperature is more bearable today ;o)

This is an easel card I made for a family member and I used a vintage image instead of having to colour something in for a change. It still took me forever to make the card though, lol!

The beautiful papers I used are Webster's Pages and I have to do a serious amount of stroking before I feel ready to cut into them!!! I added some white Doodlebug stick-on letters to spell Sylvia and then created the usual bundle of foliage and flowers, plus a Papirloftet butterfly. I'm quite pleased with how everything turned out as I think the card fits the person really well.... and after all, that's what we try to achieve isn't it!

Well I must also say a huge thank you to everyone who stops by my blog to take a look..... and if you have time to leave a comment too then bless you!

Must dash now..... the office is calling, groan!!!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Wow, you really know how to strut your stash! LOVE the design, that gorgeous cluster of flowers/berries - yum! What do you use to stick down everything? Glue gel?

Totally gorgeous! I love this vintage look and the flowers and berries are just stunning! I am sure she will love it!
Wish we had a little more heat up this way...trying to get the kids in the garden and they are always complaining it is too cold!

I always pop by your blog but time has been so short lately ...but I wanted you to know I was here today! LOL!!

have a fab day,
Judy xx
