Just want to thank all of you for being patient with me for not posting in so long & to especially thank some of my “special friends” who continue to help me make this “addiction” so fun. I made a link to their blogs so you can pop by when you have a minute & see the wonderful things they post.
I made a little display rack so thought it was time to finally make a card to sit on it … At my job I sometimes have the opportunity to do a little wood working. I must say I am NOT a builder of any kind but with my daughter & my “Boss’s” help I have made this cute little rack made out of scrap wood. It’s not perfect but good enough for me …
I was inspired by using some of the new Nitwit’s digi papers to start my card. They had a sale on the papers recently & I bought a “few” new collections including this wonderful “Time For Tea” that I used here. I LOVE the digi papers after having a couple of sweet friends, Sharon & Paula help me figure out how to resize & print them. Thanks ladies, you are GREAT !!!
It's funny as many Tildas as I have that this image is the one I chose to put on this card as it's the same one my good friend Ruth Ann used for my Tilda bag she made me. I guess I must REALLY like it ! It's also one my Granddaughter Amber colored awhile back so thought I share how much fun she had using my Copics.
I got a little carried away with embellishments & pretty much covered up my beautiful paper. (shame on me) … I used some Wild Orchid Craft flowers & the one with the little button on it is made from felt which is wonderful to play with. I cut it with my Vagabond machine (which I LOOOVE) & it cut like butter. I think it was Amanda who told me about it & of course I had to go try some … I love trying new things !!! The teapot charm was sent to me along with a few others from Gloria who always made the cutest cards but is now making dolls among her many other talents.
WHY does it take so much to make a simple card !!! I start with the basics & pretty soon my craft room is totally all on my desk. Anyone else have that problem !!! I decided I had all this pretty stuff out so I started making another card for a little different look … So I’ll have another card to post soon …
