Yes second post from me today. I'm filling my boots so to speak before I go back to work nest week. Only three more days before I have to return boohoo. Anyways, for those who read my blog earlier I'm happy to say I now have an oven on order, it won't be with us until the week after next but I don't mind I'm just pleased to get one that will fit where the old one will come out of :) This afternoon we visited Loch Insh by Aviemore, unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side this time and it was wet and a little cold so we just had a short walk around the loch side then cheered ourselves up with cake and hot chocolate! Fingers crossed the weather will be better tomorrow as we are planning going to Nairn Games, a nearby Highland Games with a big funfair.
Ok, onto my card. Both the papers and stamp were freebies from Quick Cards Made Easy, both of which are excellent quality for being freebies. Apologies for the poor lighting in the photograph, I normally take my photos in the kitchen as it has good light with minimal shadow but unfortunately my kitchen lighting has blown (everything is packing in just now) so I experimented in different rooms and this is the best I could come up with.
I've coloured the stamped image with Promarkers and die cut it with an X-cut scalloped circle die, mounted on a lacey circle Spellbinders die cut, I've used one from the same set for the sentiment which is a freebie from Netty. The leaves have been cut with a Sizzlits die from Stampin' Up and I've used a mix of paper and resin flowers. The little heart shaped brad was part of a challenge prize as was the card candi. The mesh strip and lace were both purchases from my Elgin trip. An adhesive felt shape, button, pearls and gems finish off my card.
