Pretty in Pink

Welcome to my new follower Chris all the way from Canada, how wonderful to have you onboard and your blog is certainly one to have a look at

Also thank you all for your welcomed comments on my last card, did not know how the card would go down but you all seemed to like the die and card.  I spent a long time wondering whether to buy the heart die alone and by the time I made up my mind the only way to get it was in a Multibuy.  So wallet was stretched again but I had to have it.  They are lovely to work with, the card releases from the die so easily and do not need to be embossed so less work to achieve the desired effect.

My card today is another using some other dies in the Multibuy.

The base is an 8 x 8 card and the background is white pearlised card embossed with a folder I got when I bought the Ebosser. The Tattered Lace die for the corners is the Chantilly Flourish cut using pink card (on reflection I could have blinged it up a bit but this was my first attempt at using them), the Bow is Chantilly Bow which I am sure you will agree makes a beautiful bow.  On another card I used to different  colours and offset one on top of the other and achieved a lovely effect.  The ribbon and  pearls are from my stash. I will add the sentiment when it is decided what the card is to be used for.

Now I have started using these dies I am eager to get more made but Christmas Cards are high on the agenda just now.  I have also to finish the kits for the ladies at The Good Companions Club for Thursday, yes I will remember my camera and take some photos of them at work. One of the ladies at the club requested four cards "To the Both of You", three for Great Granddaughters and one for Great Grandson and one for a Special Friend so you can see I have been busy along with making wreath hangings too.  I have made five wreath hangings and had to make gift bags for them to go into. It has taken up so much time but they are complete just to photograph them and take them down on Thursday.

Well only leaves me to say take care out there and wrap up warm.

Oh sorry a wee note for Jen at Krafty Keepsakes The heart die is Tattered Lace Chantilly Heart.
