Just for fun
I forgot I made this card last week just for fun. I had some of the Stampin Up papers I had been using on another card on my desk and a WOJ image that I coloured ages ago so thought I would stick them onto a card, and this is how it turned out.
I just love these SU! papers just now, they are so pretty and just happened to go well with my coloured image. The lace looks squint here but it was just because I scanned the card and the scanner had moved it. It does look straight IRL. The lace was from a local haberdashery and the velvet ribbon I threaded through it is by Craft House. Flowers are a mix of Prima and some from Tabby Crafts. spacer and pearls from Ebay and branches are punched with a Mcgill punch.
I made this card to send to someone who hopefully still reads my blog :) so one of you will be getting it through your mailbox soon :)
Now the card is over and done with, I have an apology to make. I have a lot of mail that needs posted but I have been busy at the kids school all week and haven't been back in time to catch the post office, so if any of you are waiting for packages from me, I am really sorry. They will be posted first thing in the morning. I have also had trouble getting card to stamp my images on and for my card bases as the papermill shop was out of the normal card I use when I went last week, and I haven't been able to get there this week, so hopefully they will have tomorrow or else I won't be able to make any more cards until they get some in!
Right I'm off to look for some more ideas for this Santa's grotto thing! Thank you to everyone who left me some ideas :) If anyone else has any ideas/advice on what else I could do to decorate a room to make it into a Santa's Grotto, they would be gratefully received. Just incase anyone didn't see my post below, I need to make a fireplace and decorate the rest of the room too. I have a few idea but the more ideas I have the better. I should of maybe mentioned in my previous post that as it's for the school, we are on a budget, so it has to be cheap but look good :)
Thanks for stopping by
