Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today has been a busy one, with lots of crafting, and a NOT so good start to the New Year or you could look at it as a brilliant!!! start to the new year................. see what you think
My new Memory box dies arrived whoop, whoop, so got on with a card that I just wanted to do as I had created the image digitally and it just needed me to colour, but then also had a brain wave on another so out came the NEW memory box heart border die. Through the grand and oh dear that was not so good, it would not cut all the way through, so out with the good old reliable (I will get to this bit again in a minute) cuttlebug.................and nope that did not work either. Now a couple of years back I had a problem with a metal topped snowflake die, but my beloved husband is a ace up my sleeve (that can be taken today in two ways) he figured out how to get my little snowflake out, so I asked him to do the same with my Memory Die, left him at it whilst I got on with a couple of more bits, and then it appeared he was having an issue, the sandwich would not move. Both Matt and Mike tried to resolve this issue and eventually Matt decided it needed taking to pieces. So after taking the dog to the vets for her manicure, we returned home, for me to cook tea and for Matt to dismantle the bug. Shortly returning to inform me that it has broken teeth on a cog.....................you got it HE has broken my bug, that oh not so reliable now bug :( . However this does present a nice opportunity :) the ace up his sleeve............... Spoke to a good friend Polly and discussed the possibilities of different replacements and I am now aiming for an alternative replacement, fingers crossed tomorrow at the Grimsby Crafts sale..............................more to follow.
Anyway the card I was so eager to complete I sat and coloured up this evening, so here is my interpretation of the sketch at Totally Papercrafts rotated slightly.
It is a new home card
The base layer is a bright pink paper which is also the contrast on this card. The card is an 8"x 8" card. The papers which are gorgeous are by Kanban from their Bloomsbury Collection pad. The darker green papers, get this are from my left overs draw :) and are also Kanban. The roses are from Wild Orchid, originally white and airbrushed with RV06 with a little glossy accents for dew drops. The pearls are from the Hobby House and the little green flourishes are one of many lovely samples sent from Dies to Die for with my recent order, this flourish has been carefully cut into four. The gorgeous cerise ribbon from a recent win.
Here is the image

I could sit and colour for hours, so relaxing don't you think.
