A little bit of frou-frou..

 

Morning all...

Hope you're all well..

Today I have what my lovely sister would have called 'a bit of frou-frou' - (she had her own fabbie words for lots of things - I can't believe it's now over 5 years since she passed away - I still miss her so much)..  Anyway, it's a card I made just because I felt like it  - the most enjoyable ones to make don't you think?

I bought this stamp over at Samuel Taylors in Embsay last time I was there.... she's just up my street - and of course, she had to be adorned with pink and glitter!


Materials Used:
Paper - Sorry it was a piece from my scrap box - no name
Colouring - Copics
Die: Floral Oval from Spellbinders
Sentiment: PC Generated
Ribbon and Glitter from Stash

Being in Yorkshire, we're all ready for the big race today... The Tour de France Grand Depart passes within a few miles of our house...  but as so many roads are closed, we're going to be couch watchers!! hehe!  The atmosphere in the locality is wonderful and it's been good to see everyone pulling together.  However, it's quite cloudy and a bit wet at the moment, but the weather men say it's going to clear so that the crowds can see lovely Yorkshire at it's fabulous best!  

Have a good weekend, whatever you're doing..
Big Hugs

  12. Another delightful image and a gorgeous card Christine.
    I was glued to the TV for the start of the Tour de France, and was quite miffed when I had to turn it off and go to work before the finish! What a shame about poor Cav!

  16. Pink perfection! I'm loving the frou-frou and I hope you had some happy memories of your sister while making this.
    It is so rare for me to get time to make a card just because I feel like it, but it does make a nice treat sometimes doesn't it?
    Big hugs, Kat xx
