Love, hearts and roses. . . . . . . .


Good morning everybody. Hope that you are all well and that Hazel is on final approach to Glasgow.
I'm typing this at stupid o'clock so please forgive any spelling mistakes. Mr Duck is probably snoring away in his hotel in Dunfermline for work so I'm not eager to climb into a cold, empty bed just yet.

Glad you are thinking of dusting down your mica pots. I'm loving the stuff. Wendy, get yourself round to John's and pinch some.
Sue, hope that decorating's finished or I know what you're doing today lol!!!
Welcome back to Jackie. Glad you had a fab time. Bet you're all bronzed and glowing.
Crikey Lesley,and there's me usually moaning at £2.99 p&p from C&C.

Now, back to today's card. There is only the one pic today. This is another of the cards I submitted as part of my application for the CE DT.
Its mats and layers of black and white PMD card and Limetree Crafts Gold Shimmer card. This is similar to the soft gold card sold elsewhere but about half the price. Its 300gsm and double sided and lovely. Unfortunately, Limetree don't do mail order as yet so I stock up at craft shows. They also do lots of other fab cardstock at £1 for a pack of 10 A4 sheets. . . . . .bargain!
The frame is the outer die of SB Majestic Labels 25 and the SB Bracket Borders. The middle dies are the two smallest SB Decorative Labels Eight. On the larger one, I went over the edges with my Versamark Pen, dunked it into gold embossing powder and heat set.
The background was done by stamping a Kanban Rose stamp onto some gold shimmer card and heat embossing in gold. This was then run through the GC with a Crafts Too heart embossing folder.
All assembled as you see. Sadly, not a winner for CE but I like it and hope you may like it too.

Well, that's me off to try another mug of camomile before attempting bed. I normally only see one 1 o'clock in a day and its pm rather than am hahaha!!! You can just imagine what state I'm going to be in the morning . . . . . . . well, later this morning I should say. 

Have a good day folks.

  1. Good morning my friend,
    A truly stunning creation which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
    Everything about it is brilliant.

    Hope you managed to eventually get to sleep. I was the opposite when John was away. I missed him but loved having the "whole" bed to myself.
    I could not sleep I am so excited my best buddy is on her way home.
    Will not see her for a while yet she is off "gadding" about on Saturday.......to Birmingham for an Army Reunion thing.
    Have a fantastic day
    Hugs

  2. Hi Ang
    Yes, I do like it too. Labels 25 is one of my current favourites (Sue Wilson uses it today too!). Lots of lovely labels and intricate die cuts - just my cup of tea. Thank you for sharing.
    Best wishes

  7. Hi Ang. Your cards just keep getting better and better. This is beautiful and I'm surprised it didn't make DT. Loving the bracket border - seems like you and john had the same idea for using it today.
    Hope you're not too tired today.
    Love Val x

  8. Good morning Ang and first of all CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I have more or less caught up on my holiday backlog and was so pleased for you to see you had won the challenge. It was a lovely card as is this one so it is a shame you didn't succeed with it. I also use loads of Limetree Cards packs of card, they are such good value and as they always have a stand of the few local shows here everytime I go to a show I seem to buy more so I have all colours of the rainbow. I am still quite bronzed and feeling so well so I'm hoping it lasts a while longer yet. I trust Mr Duck will return to you safely from his travels, with best wishes Jackie
