Well, I love to colour, and I love my Marianne dies, but I'm not made of money and will have to tighten my belt somewhat this year. Also, I'm not sending many personal cards these days and those that go by post need to be flat and postage friendly, as do the ones I'm going to make for charity, especially as I'm donating them too so wont be able to afford extra little bits and bobs, not that I need any as I have bags of blooms and boxes of ribbon! So you will find that any cards I make will tend to be flat, embellishments wont be sticking out much and dogs will be a big feature! I do want to try my hand at home decor this year, as a way to use up those flowers and ribbons .. .. ..
Anyway, here are my first couple of cards with little Tilly the dog stamps by Wild Rose Studio (having a dog in the picture means I might be tempted to buy a new stamp - my excuse!) I've coloured Tilly with flowers with Copics to match the part made card with the pretty Nitwits paper, and then simply fixed the image to a doily I found already cut out in a bit box .. .. one down!
Inside each card I've just stamped 'hugs and kisses' that way it could be for any occasion.
The Marianne Design dies I used are:
butterflies from LR0261
leaves from LR0117
flowers smallest in set COL1323
doily mat on top card CR1248
Hope you like my little creations, if my internet lasts I might be able to browse and find some challenges to link up with .. .. thanks for stopping by.
