Tilly With Flowers

Hello again! did you miss me over the weekend?  Well I had hoped to schedule this card for you to see but the internet was down on Friday night - perhaps something to do with the BT man with his head in a hole and bum in the air peering at something underground .. .. it seems that even this part of Cornwall should be getting super fast broadband any time soon .. .. fingers crossed and weather permitting!

Anyhow, back to my card.  I couldn't resist this cute Wild Rose Studio stamp, Tilly with Flowers, when I saw it in the  Stamp Basket sale - I love those spaniel ears!  I've coloured with my Copic pens then left things simple and gone for a CAS design.

I had the pretty scallop mat cut for ages - since a visit to my friend Wynneth and a chance to play with her vast die collection!  The red layer is a piece of linen effect thin card I found in my stash and to finish I've just added the strips of sticky back pearls that come already in a line so you just snip off how many you want - I've had them ages and have now just about run out, and can't remember where I got them in the first place.  I've kept the card blank so I can choose a sentiment to add inside as and when I need to - ie Anniversary or Valentine or Thank You etc.

Just as well I waited to post as a couple of new challenges popped up this morning that I can enter - The Cutie Pie challenge is for CAS designs this week, and at Incy Wincy Designs it's for fur or feathers. Creative Inspirations have an anything goes theme running for a few more days so I hope they like my CAS card.

    Laughing at the Spaniel ears! Our Cocker Spaniel had enormous ears! Can't believe it's 3 years next month since she died. People keep saying time's going really fast this year. Maybe it's an age thing!
