Finished at last.

Finished at last & took far to long to complete and it didn't look right as a card so I turned it into an easel ( which I seem to makea lot of lately).
I used K&Co papers, black, yellow & gold card for backing. Also inside card Deco Follies topper & decoupaged & glittered it. Roses from Craftwork Cards, Ribbon bow & pearl brad. MS punch, ribbon slider & a heart charm. Pearls inside punchout & diamonte inside small circle from RWS.

This is also a Vince freebie,I really fell in love with these children as they remind me of a little of what I got up to as a child.
This card started its life as another card but the girls just gelled with it more the flowers are from Samuel Taylors, greeting from CC & the butterfly from JJ cards
This card is from a free download from Vince. I have used papers from Craftwork Cards (both same paper one side reversed). MS punch I love this but can't seem to line it up.3 gems & flowers from my stash, Nesties and distress inks for background.

I wont be posting any cards for a few days as I have to do a special card for my friends parents 50th, the element she has chosen isn't sitting right for me it doesn't feel right & I want it to be special.
It's been a day & half for me yesterday I took Judith's card to work for her & made her cry when she saw it( not because she didn't like it), then I went to visit my friend Lorraine & then I strolled round a few shops day done. Today I got a call from my daughter (Vicki) asking me to go to hospital with her as she had banged her head earlier this morning, she is ok but she had to have someone with her so she came here where I could be with her. So that is all for now folks (roll the music)haha Night

Not posting a card today as I'm so tired, got up 4-30 to catch 5-26 train to Harrogate only for my friend & the train to arrive at the same time. We went so early as I thought it would be good to do a class, all went well but for the weather & homeward bound we went to the wrong platform for the train home ( do you get the feeling youv'e been here before like 5-26), so any way still very tired over spent & now Rugby is on WHAT A DAY haha
