Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Under the mistletoe

The lovely Rosie set the Saturday sketchie in the CMLI group on Craftbubble. The theme was 'standing under' and the dt created some lovely cards. Big congratulations to Kathy aka Purple Princess who has joined the team!

I used the gorgeous die cut from Lilli of the Valley with a cute couple under the mistletoe.

I was thinking of card candi or buttons for the sketch and thought the heart buttons were perfect as they are obviously in love!

Sentiment is Forever Friends.

Hmm not sure if you can make it out but the panel behind the picture has been embossed with a papermania snowflakes folder. Ribbon is from polka doodles. This was such a great sketch to work with, I hope you like it!

Christmas cards already? I just broke out into a light sweat! Hehehe. A truly gorgeous card hun, I do love it!
I didn't go near LOTV at all last year as I knew it would be an all new addiction. But I did happen upon their stand at the NEC in November, and Hubby actually turned to me and said, I guess in the New Year that's one resolution you're breaking.. rofl!!
Looking at your gorgeous creation - I know I'm breaking it very soon. Hahaha.xx

Mandy said...

Gorgeous card Debs, so sweet, I love that image I really must get around to inking mine up!
With regards to your question hun, I always make a box for my cards to go in to stop the flowers getting squashed & keep them "safe" in the post. There's a tutorial with measurements for a box big enough for a card with a PATP frame on my tutorials page if you are interested :)
hugs Mandy xx
