Life is better with friends

Hello everyone,

I am trying to blog every week, honest lol. I hope you are all well, and enjoying the brighter days we are having at the moment.

We are getting ready for our next shows on Create and Craft which are Friday the 28th, we are live at 1pm with the lovely Dave Bradford, then again at 6pm with Lee Clarke, we haven't worked with Lee before so are looking forward to meeting him.

Today I have a card to show you which was on our last show last week, using the Letters / Alphabet stamp set and flowers which I made from the Dress stamp set, both available from Create and craft.

I started with a 5x5 scallop  card blank, then matt and layered black card , papers from the Pretty projects cd rom available here, then lay some fabulous lace from my stash across the card, I then used a Tattered lace little scallop border, I love these dies they are so delicate. Next I stamped my  message for the topper using the Alphabet Stamp Set this set is so versatile as you can stamp whatever words you like whether it be a personal message a quote or anything. I then matted it onto some black card and cut another tattered lace border to fix across the top to edge it a little. I then stamped and embossed the flowers from the Dress stamp set and layered them up to make a little display in the corner, then added some swirl die cuts again from tattered lace , then dded a few gems to the middle of the flowers and top left hand corner. The card is now finished , I hope you like it.

Thank you so much for looking.
