For some reason this image always makes me think of Cinderella! Don't ask why just an indication of how troubled my mind is lol.
I went for red and black promarkers on this for either Valentines or an Anniversary.
The sentiment on this one is from Pink Gem, its a rather large stamp but very intricate. I used red ink and embossed it before cutting it using a spellbinders circle die.
The frame is also a Spellbinders die and I have matched it up with the corner frame dies.
I them tried again with purple and lilac and got a completely different feel from the image.
Instead of ribbon on this card I used glitter card.
The image flows out of the die cut using the technique of cutting round part of it before threading it through a die.
The sentiment is another of the Lili of The Valley digi stamps. So versatile.
I tried it with this card which i made for my husband's niece who has just turned 13 but is going on 19!! as all teenage girls are.
I cut out the bottom of the image and then threaded it through the die and simply put it through the cuttlebug.
The sentiment is a digi version of the Sentiments from Lili of the Valley. I was a little too slow to get the rubber versions but actually these are great as you can make them whatever size you want.
The flowers are from a set from MeiFlower. The set had about 6/8 of five colours.
The papers are from Nitwits which I love.
The ribbon is recycled from a Christmas food hamper we received at Christmas.

I can't believe its been a month since my last post. At the moment work is so busy that even my husband went to stay at his mother's as I was never in before 7.30pm every night sometimes as late as 9.30pm.
Having a nightmare getting my new camera to transfer my photos to the computer so left it and went to watch The Black Swan. Now I feel completely emotionally wrung out. What a film! Didn't see much of it as I had my eyes closed. Very very dark. I always like to try and see as many of the films nominated for the Best Film Oscar.
Saw The King's Speech a few weeks ago and was absolutely blown away by the whole film. Inception I thought was a modern version of The Matrix. I loved it but my husband said after about 10 mins he was completely lost.
I have actually been making cards but haven't got round to putting them as posts. Have enjoyed the 'colouring in' . At the moment trying to make as many cards as possible to sell as part of my fundraising for the London Moonwalk I am doing with 2 of my friends. It dawned on us on Saturday that it is only 13 weeks away and because of the weather we are still only managing to walk 5 miles on a night!!!!!!
I bought some of the new Simply Sassy Stamps and have enjoyed using my promarkers on them.
This is the card I made for my husband for Valentine's Day.
I tried out my new Spellbinders Ornate Tags and Hearts dies
The papers are recycled from packaging as I didn't have any black card!!
