Add a heap of inspiration, a spoonful of creativity, oodles of patience, a pinch of hope and a sprinkling of love, bind it all together and stand back and admire.

I do I do I do
Isn't this weather just gorgeous. It really lifts your spirits when its as gorgeous as this. I love seeing people out and about and enjoying the warm sunny weather. Lunchtime today I went out onto the street to do some shopping and there was lots of people out and about. A street band was playing in the centre, people were sitting about listening, others chatting. The park beside the library had people lying on the grass reading, people playing swingball, people sitting. It just puts a different slant on life doesn't it. Anyway I waffle too much must be the weather lol. I made this card at the weekend for a lady who asked me to make her wedding invitations. I've used the same colours purple and silver. The only remit I got from her was for Cadbury purple and silver. Anyway I made 5 samples up and let her decide which one she wanted which turned out to be my favourite as well. So that worked in my favour. I don't want to post them yet until after her wedding in November. I loved making this card. Isn't this image too cute. I love Lily of the Valley stamps. I've kept the background white and used Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. The image is coloured with copics and double matted. The flowers are 3D die cut but have been cut out of the paper if you know what I mean. The leaves are die cuts too. A little piece of lilac ribbon has been tied across the middle over the top of a Martha Stewart border. And of course some flat backed self adhesive gems added simply because I love them. A girl can never have too much bling now can she.
Hi I'm a 40 something mother ( well actually nearer the older end of the 40's but who's counting) of 2 boys 19 and 17 who I love dearly but who both drive me to distraction sometimes. Hence the need to escape into my own little creative world. I love all things to do with card making. I kind of stumbled into it but now I've found my feet so to speak I LOVE IT. It keeps me out of the way of my long suffering husband and sons. Please pop on to say Hi, I don't bite and would love to hear from you. I'm proud to be a member of Docrafts and you can find me on there under the name of Smallsteps.
