What a bargain!
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you've all had a good day.... I got lovely roses off my man, and a beautiful card... and I really thought we'd not done Valentines for the last couple of years.. ah well, bad marks for me!! But I do have an excuse, I've had a bad tummy since the weekend, and today I'm feeling so tired too... didn't even want to get in my craft room! (but I did....)
Marci with Rose from La La Land Crafts digi for the image. I've coloured her with both promarkers (the pink is from the limited edition - it's a lovely musky pink) and copics... then embossed her with a large embossing tool to 'round her edges'. I've added glitter and a gem to her hat, and she was done. Then, for my card I used a kraft card layer, then an embossed layer.... then a lovely bit of lace bought from Samuel Taylors in Skipton on Saturday... thought it matched the pink well..
Now.... the bargain bit! Last time I was at Dunelm Mill, I bought some alphabet stamps by Hampton Art Stamps - they were reduced, and each alphabet cost me the sum total of 84p! Well..... not one to leave a bargain behind, I picked up four different alphabets, and this one I think is my favourite!! I've used it for the HUGS sentiment... stamped each letter on kraft card and glittered around the edge.. Both the image and the word were added with 3d foam pads... to give them a bit of height. Lastly I used Stickles Icicles around the edge of the embossed paper to give even more of my favourite stuff!! LOL!
Big hugs to all
