Shabby Chic LOTV~

Hello Ladies~

What a day, work was a bit hectic, Stating Wednesday I have half my staff off on holiday and we are managing without having to bring in any cover. It's certainly going to be fun!!

When I got in from work there was a lovely Email waiting for me from Abi, welcoming me to the team at Sweet Stamping Challenge Blog, how exciting is that? Cannot wait to join in with the girls, so here's to the next few months of fun and madness!!

I have had a TRY! at Shabby Chic on my latest card, I have to admit I do like this style, but I always feel I have not quite managed it....so here it is and true to form, I don't feel 100% happy with it, but it's done now so hay ho!




I am going to be busy Scrapbooking tonight, so no more cards for a day or two, have not asked permission yet if I am allowed to show any of the LO's but if I get a yes I will let you see some. I am really enjoying this latest book, it's all set in The USA, Vegas, New York, San Fransisco to name but a few and the photographs are gorgeous, a bit of a challenge, but really nice to do.

For today's card I have used this gorgeous LOTV image I have just bought, and the DP's are Prima Botanical. I have inked all the edges of the papers with walnut stain Tim Holtz ink and also used his tool to rough up the edges. I have used various different rubber stamps to stamp all over the background, (script, butterfly and flower stamps). The flowers are Hobbyhouse, sentiment is LOTV and the image is coloured with Copic's and Pro-Markers.
