Just For You

Good Morning!  I am relieved that my poor old pc is working this morning after all the flashes and bangs we had here on the coast last evening and overnight.  At least the garden is looking perky from all the rain and the skies are blue again, albeit with the odd pile of white fluffy stuff on the horizon.  Hopefully it will stay fine for a while as the grandkids are planning another visit tomorrow .. ..

This is my very late DT card for Cute Card Thursday where we have an anything goes theme - I must remember to add it to the blog.

I coloured this cutie Dawn stamped image from Nellie's Choice with my Copic pens then cut her out and added a row of faux stitches around the edge to tie in with the rest of my stitched details on the card .. .. ..

And here is the card.  I've used my Frilly #10 dies again to cut the base and layers but kept my embellishments minimal this time.  The fancy mat behind my image and the flowers and leaves are all from Marianne Design die set CR1248.  I've stitched the veins of the leaves with a green embroidery floss, and around the fancy circle and the centre of the flowers with a peachy pink floss.  The embossed areas on the flowers I've inked in peachy pink chalk ink then finished them off with pink gems.  The little text banner is one of my new dies COL1325 that comes with Christmas text stamps, however, I found that some of my old Papermania clear sets would curve around a bit and fit in nicely.

Stampin' for the Weekend would like to see shaped cards this week, while over at the ABC challenge  blog they are up to the letter S for stitching, so perfect!

  5. Gorgeous Annie. Love the shape, the sweet image and the lovely embellishments and stitching.

    I've had a lovely catch up with all the beautiful cards I've missed. I don't know why I always think I'll have time to blog while I'm at my daughter's babysitting. My laptop was hardly opened except to post my DT card!
