I wish this rain would bog off, I have had enough of it now, I think us Brits are resigned to the fact that we only get one week of summer per year!!!
I made this lovely card for a friend at work for her sister who will be 60 soon, and there is only one stamp in my collection that covers this and that is Martini Nikki. I have omitted the dog, she is coloured with Promarkers and then I embossed around the image with a cuttlebug folder and matted to some teal CS, The DP's are from First Edition and Dovecraft, I added a double scallop border using my MS punch, some ribbon, the crochet flower is handmade by me and I added a rose to the centre, the sentiments are from Ladybug crafts ink (top right), LOTV (bottom left) and the name is computer generated, the scallop die and stamp are from Whimsy, I finished off with some pearls.
I am lucky enough to be off most of this week so I will be enjoying some crafty time.
Have a lovely day x
