Morning, all!

Isn't this a lovely image? She came from Dies to Die For along with a few other goodies I hope to play with soon! I love how Tracy at Dies to Die For signs each invoice, and includes lovely die-cuts! The service is so quick, too! Ordered Sunday, arrived Tuesday!

On to the deets! The papers are Pink Petticoat Wild Blossom (they were a magazine freebie but I also downloaded them). The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is LotV, the ribbon is from stash. I used a Nellie Snellen punch for the leaves and a Martha Stewart punch for the scalloped border.

The layout is copied from a card by Jacqui Dennis which is shown on an advert for Flexmarkers in a magazine. Which is ironic, because I used Speccies for this! I can't find my list of what I used (I knew it was a mistake to tidy and chuck out all my bits of paper!) Sigh.

The card is a thank you to my neighbours, who gave me a box of fruit from their apple tree. The only stamp with an apple that I have is a Magnolia Tilda who looks like Snow ~White - but since her apple was poisoned Ididn't think it would be tactful to use her!!

If I may, can I remind you that there's one more day to enter Dream Valley Challenges with your Halloween cards? The next Challenge goes live on Sunday at noon. I'll be at my Dad's 92nd birthday lunch so my entry will be late, but do go across and see what's up on Sunday!!

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

luv, Mags x
