Another unusually early post from me today lol! Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We had been expecting a bit of snow this weekend but it's still unseasonally mild and we even managed a trip to the park yesterday afternoon. Long may it last, although I keep thinking it will catch up with us eventually.
Today's card is made with another image I coloured in a while back. I don't know anyone who's leaving for Australia but I've been itching to colour this in since I got it! It will be handy to have in case I or anyone else ever needs it!
The Magnolia stamped image has been coloured in with Promarkers. I've used 2 papers from the Kaisercraft Sweet Pea range which are another magazine freebie! Everything has been layered up using khaki cardstock. The dies are Spellbinders lacey circles and X-cut scalloped circles. I've also included a journalling notelet behind the image from the All Aboard range, some letter stickers from the Madame Payraud range and a metal bird from the Sew Lovely range, all by Papermania. I've added khaki spotted organza ribbon and stapled on 2 shades of ric rac for added texture. I've finished off the card with a couple of pearls.
Well I'm away to get Iona ready now, she has a ten-pin bowling party for a pals birthday today. While she's there I'm planning a mooch around Hobbycraft to see what's new!
