My goodness! We have sunshine (sporadically!) I'm even keener than usual on sunshine, because we now have solar panels on the roof! The electric meter goes BACKWARDS!! So exciting!
But enough of this blathering, you cry. What about the card?
The cute image is by Elisabeth Bell for Belles and Whistles, from Dies to Dies For. I coloured her with Speccies again. The swirls round her are Whiff of Joy Christmas swirls, stamped in Wild Honey Distress Ink, and I also distressed all the papers with the same ink. My yellow card is very bright, and the distressing toned it down a lot!
Papers are Cosmo Cricket 'Togetherness' which are lovely Retro designs. The sketch is by 'Sweet Sketch Wednesday.'
I stickled the swirls, the lemon slices and the dots on her bows. The flower is 3 Prima blooms, the blue swirl underneath is a Marianne die, and the green brad is one of a Papermania set I picked up at the Ally Pally last year. The glittery ribbon is from stash, the shiny stickers are Paperchase.
Talking of Ally Pally, is anyone going who'd like to meet up for a coffee? I hope to go, probably on the Saturday. It would be nice to meet fellow carders who understand the lure of stash!!!
I'm entering this card into the current Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge where the DT is showcasing Elisabeth Bell images.
Ok, if it's Thursday afternoon it must be time for the ironing! I have no life.
Thanks for looking!
luv, Mags x
