On your special day

2011_01_29_1299
I am showing a card today that used the image Joy  from sugar Nellie,
and am entering this into the Cute Card Thursday challenge where there is a fabby sketch to follow.





2011_01_29_1299
I have used papers from T!m Holtz. Vintage Shabby, the paper flowers are made from various sized retro flower punches with a pearl added to the middle and stickles to the edges. The bought flowers are from wild orchid crafts. Sentiment is Lili of the valley.  and the seam binding is some that i was messing around with.. my hands were bright red by the time i had finished.. looked like i had cut something.. lol..

Beautifull card Rach, and I just love your stitching, I must have ago at the zigzag, only just plucked up the courage to try straight stitch hehe. Can I ask are your cards 8x8 and if so where do you buy them (if you do) as I can't seem to find them anywhere. Have thought about making my own but then you have to make an envelope as well which I really struggle with and I love your boxes, look forward to seeing you do a demo for those :) xx

Beautiful as always, also love how you take your final picture in your hand made box, Do you mail your card in the box, have been wondering how to mail the cards now that I've started adding flowers. Very bulky now, would love the dimentions, or if its a template where to get it from.
Thanks so much
Hugs
Debbie

Hi sweetie this is amazing & sooooo beautiful. I did laugh my ass off tho when I read about your hands.....I thought I was the only one silly enough to dye seam binding without gloves on........I did exactly the same yesterday, you should see my hands as well I could enter my hands into some 'Red' challenges & stamp handmade in the middle of my palm lol. Take care hun & thankyou for making me laugh lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
