This evening's card is made using my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge, I really must make an effort to use my Cricut more often, I've got loads of cartridges that haven't been used and there's ton's of wonderful shapes on most of the cartridges that would make lovely shaped cards.

Tilda with rose lace dress has been coloured with Copics, and as usual, heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The patterned papers are Anna Griffin, The sentiment and banner are Tonic. Spellbinders dies.  The larger postcard is a Lili of the Valley stamp, the smaller postcard is a Prima stamp.  Ribbon, lace, pearls, flowers, paper doily and a beautiful pearl and diamante flower embellishment to finish.

Lili of the Valley - Annabel Texting


Good evening crafting peeps! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far.  

Must say how excited we are in this household that Wales have made it through to the quarter-finals of the Euro's.  However, I do feel that Northern Ireland were the better team today, their defence was awesome and my heart went out to the team and their fans when they scored an own goal.  I don't know what's come over me these past few weeks as I don't normally like football.  But I am so extremely proud of the Welsh team and the fans, waiting 58 years and doing tremendously well so far, Da Iawn boys!

 My son came back from Toulouse yesterday after spending one of the best weeks of his life thoroughly enjoying himself at the Wales v Russia match, (such a superb game!) and meeting football fans from different countries.  

Anyways,enough of football and  back to crafting.  I've coloured Annabel texting with Copics, then heat embossed the entire image with clear embossing powder.  The patterned papers are a mix of Stampin Up! and from a digi kit.  Martha Stewart butterfly punches. Sentiment tags. Prima paper flowers,  Dew Drops in the centre of the flowers and gems for embellishments.
