Love & Happiness.......

Good afternoon to you all..... hope you're having a fine weekend!

I'm off out in a few minutes to watch my hubby playing cricket and hopefully score a few fours and sixes along the way.... it's perfect weather to sit on a comfy recliner and relax.

Today's card has a bit of an art deco feel about it I think.... I didn't start off with that in mind but I think the Webster's Pages paper I used draws on that theme.... and the lovely vintage lady certainly looks like she could be a fashionable filmstar from the era too!

I've hand torn and rolled the large roses and the leaves are a Marianne die. I've added some liquid pearl dots here and there and edged the paper with a stitching border stamp. You might also spot the sweet little fabric bird I squeezed in above the main sentiment.

Vintage Girl........

Good morning everyone!

Here's another card I've made with a vintage theme and quite summery too with the roses and leaves. I am really enjoying the shabby chic card style at the moment..... a bit of distressing makes me feel good, lol!

Live The Life You Love........

Good morning!!!

Wow it's been a very long time!! I have finally moved house now and the whole process has been incredibly stressful and tiring..... well that's what happens when you move without a removal firm, lol!

I haven't really had chance to sort out my crafting stash yet or get creative, but I do have this card I made before the big move took place. I chose a vintage theme with pretty pastel Webster's Pages papers and Papirloftet flowers and leaves.

You may notice that I've removed the 'comment' facility from my page now and this is something I've been considering for a while..... it seems wrong to receive comments on my work from so many lovely people when I never have time these days to return the favour. I am trying to devote as much time as I possibly can to my kids as they are growing up too fast, so sitting at the computer for hours on end just doesn't cut it! Be assured that I do visit many blogs regularly but just don't have time to leave the comments I wish I could..... so please feel free to do the same when you visit me...... just take a peek and move on ;o) And I am always grateful if you take the time to do that ;o) ;o)

Have a lovely day...... TTFN and TFL,
