At last, another card....... and some FREEBIES!
Hope you've all had a lovely bank holiday weekend, and that you all enjoyed the magical day that was the wedding day on Friday! I had my daughter and a couple of friends here to watch while my OH was at work... and we all shed a tear I think. It's so lovely to see a young couple who my daughters' (26 and 25) generation can look up to. And what role models Wills and Kate are....... aren't they? Mind you, I think one of my daughters particularly thought that William would wait for her!! Ah well.....
Right..... onto my card, which I've had to be nudged into making. I don't know what's the matter with me, but I'll EVEN tidy my craft room if it means I can avoid actually PUTTING a card together... I have loads of images coloured, but when it comes to assembling..... I tend to put it off! Weird aren't I?
Today I've used a lovely Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss stamp - Sent with Love - one of my favourites. I've coloured her with promarkers, and then cut out a rectangle round her, and sponged with a versamagic wheat colour to give the retro effect. The DP I've used is Cosmo Cricket Glitterbug Georgie Girl, then I've added some lace and put all that onto a background of bazzill cardstock. The embellie is a sizzix paddle punch that you use a hammer and a cutting mat with! Good for frustration!! But it was just right for the retro paper with daisies. Then I found a brad in my stash, which I recoloured with the matching Promarker!! (Of course, I had to use my bling button in photoshop on the brad..... it wouldn't be me otherwise, would it??)
Now the sentiment! I've used my corner rounder on it... and it's one I've generated on the computer myself, and I've added it, and a couple of others here as FREEBIES in case you'd like them! Hope you do! Please let me know if you use them, I'd love to see your creations - you can email me via my 'email me' button (D'oh..). And as always, please point people to my blog to snag them rather than just passing them on. I'd also like you to become a follower (if you're not already!), then you won't miss my future freebies. They're in JPEG format so you can resize in word however you want. If you left click on them to make them larger, then right click and choose 'save picture as' you'll be able to save them to your computer. Enjoy them - and let me know if there are other sentiments you'd like in that format.
Love and hugs to all - please say hello..... it makes my day to receive your comments.
