Such a long break

I am so sorry that I haven't been keeping up with my blogging.  In an effort to update you with what I have been making I am starting on the backlog today.  Strangely, as I have only made a few cards and done a lot more sewing since I was last in touch, the first item is a card

I did this for a WI competition (which I won and felt very pleased with myself).  I love the Tim Holtz Old  Jalopy Die and have plans to use it in a very different way later on but it gave me the basis for this card.  The card blank was a gorgeous Hunky Dory card which I had great difficulty using as it was so beautiful.

The Guipure Lace is from Wild Orchid.  Beware if you go to this shop.  I have just been to check the link and they have some very exciting pins.  The "congratulations" was made on my Cricut machine.  The pearls where from my stash and I am not sure where I got them.  The "veil" was a circular wedding favour net, again from my stash.

 I put the silver tissue paper through the cuttlebug in a pretty folder. The box was totally over the top and didn't go to the competition.  It was a spare fold-a-box box that I had and which I trimmed with matching lace.


  1. Beautiful! I'm not surprised it won, well done you.

  2. No wonder it won. What a lovely card! Congratulations. :)
