Wishing You Everything Wonderful. . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope you're enjoying some of the warm days we've been having before Autumn well and truly kicks in.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last card. I thought  I'd better explain what it was I'd drawn so that you didn't think I'd gone all Picasso on you lol!!! 

Now, today's card had me playing with the Krylon pen again I'm afraid. I love it!!!
I wanted to use the SB Tapestry die but because the First Edition paper I was using was soooo pretty (it really twinkles when the light catches it) I wanted to have more of it on display. With that in mind, I cut the Tapestry out of a layer of card and then cut bits out with a craft knife but still leaving the four centre points attached to the card so it was still all one piece.
I then edged this with the Krylon and also the edge and ends of the centre tag. I also used it to colour some white pearls gold.

Margaret, hope those fires have calmed down now.
Glad to have you back Ita. Hope the hospital visit was more successful this time. 
Mrs B, I'm hoping that the Christmas tunes don't start too early either. I used to love David Bowie and Bing Crosby's version of The Little Drummer Boy but after hearing it about 5000 times last year it drove me up the wall lol!!!
Welcome back Jackie. Hope your Mum is well. How exciting about your new home, even more so when you think about all that long lost crafting gear that you're going to re-discover lol!!! I'm afraid I'm only good at emptying boxes rather than filling them hahaha!!!

Well, that's me for today. Have a good one folks.

  6. Gorgeous card. That paper is stunning and it would have been a shame to cover it up. Also the krylon pen me thinks I will have to invest in one again.
    Still blowing here and showery typical spring weather and I think the fires are all out.

  16. Hi Ang,
    what a truly superb creation today.
    I love it.
    So luxurious too with the glittery background and the lovely gold too.
    Maybe next step CE towers me thinks.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  17. Gosh Ang this is so stylish and elegant, wonderful colour theme and dies, beautiful dies too, hugs Kate x

  18. Hi Ang.,you amaze me every day,with your amazing cards.A craft knife and I are not friends. I love the paper it would have being a shame to cover it.
    Getting to an from the Hospital was exausting, the tests were not nice,especially the Transjugular one,vein in neck open and wire etc put down into my liver,but the Consultant gave me lots of sedation,for all of the tests.
    One and a half hours in an M.R.I. Machine was the worst.
    The Hospital was 5 star, I had a penthouse suite,the food out of this world.I could have done with another say there,and after all of that,no results.I have to go back to Dublin in 2 weeks.
    That is my update everyone.

  19. Hi Ang
    What a lovely card. Good I way to show off the paper behind and, like others, I love the gold pen. I've never seen it anywhere - who stocks it?
    Best wishes, Anne O

  20. Hi Ang. Love the card, clever of you to cut away some of the die to show the lovely paper. Take care.

  21. Simply stunning! Love everything about this card!

  22. Hi Ang, better late than never. Very clever way you have cut out parts of the mat to show off the paper beneath. We often forget to go our own way and just use things as they were first designed!
    Am away with friends now for the weekend as we have rented a cottage and will have plenty of workshops presented by us all in turn so should be good fun.
    I'm afraid though I am going to be a bit intermittent over the next few months. I'm already in despair as the Solicitors are talking of me being out by the end of the month and I have no where to go! Bit difficult to carry on life here if I have to go to mums 80 miles away. But anyway I will be trying to pop in and I will be thinking of you. Best wishes Jackie x

  23. This is seriously beautiful Mrs Duck! Love the tapestry and the way you have done the bow with two colour ribbons. Actually I love it all and yes your Krylon pen too! Michelle x

  24. Great idea to cut away parts of the die Going to take a look at my (few) dies to see what I can mutilate Going to look at that tapestry die too

  25. Hi Ang. I'm way behind in posting. Love this card and the beautiful gold accents. Have a great day.

  26. Hi Ang. This is very pretty and I love the bow.
    Have a good weekend.
    Love Val x

  27. OMG this is gorgeous!!!! See what all I have been missing out on!!!!!
