Princess Frou Frou

I thought I'd share with you a picture of the card I made for my friend Debbie's birthday. Now my friend Deborah is a princess. She'll tell you herself that she is a princess, but she's really lovely, I love that about her. She invited us to her birthday party which turned into a great night. Great company, great food, and great company. Thanks Debbie for a lovely night!

Now about the card. I know I am a little bit slack on the instructions for some of my stuff, I am just lazy about those sorts of things but I should really make the effort to share, afterall isn't that what it's all about? I just have to remember now how I did it.LOL. The base card was a pinky colour. The back ground piece was originally gloss white which I stamped with Stampin Up Medallion and En Francais and embossed with silver. Got a bit heavy handed with the old heat gun here and overheaded it. It went a bit flaky. No mistake, just a happy accident. Then I sprayed over it with glimmermist colour Peppermint Stick (love this colour) and just watered it down in one corner with a spray of water. Dried again with heat gun (which didn't help the embossing again!) Added the butterfly and the grey bit. The WISH tag was made from grunge board painted red, dried, painted with Gel Medium and then covered with Angelina Fusible Iridescent Film crystal mother of pearl colour. WISH was a rub on. Added ribbon and a flower (obvious) ummmm thats it!

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do, is take a look at you

It's a Groovy Kinda Love.....lalallallah!
I hope to become a little more productive, what am I repeating myself?? No really I'm becoming a little monotonous. Anyhooooo, a few more cards for Trin.
Don't you just love hand made paper? Misted over this with a little Dragonfly glimmermist tore the edges whilst they were still wet.
Sorry about the colour. Crap day for photography. Coming into Autumn.

Look what I got!!

This gorgeous tag was sent to me by Carola, she is an amazing photographer who is from Germany but is presently living in the United States. When I had a closer look at the card it came with, I saw that she had also taken the photo as well. Carola also loves to create in mixed media and gives us step by step photos of her creations.

This generous gift was sent to me by the beautiful Michelle over at ~Que Bella~. Not only have I recieved the journal but Michelle jammed it chocka-block with gorgeous papers and added the stickers as well.

Lastly this stunning piece of vintage jewellery was sent to me by Holly. She and her talented son work with all things beady. I have worn this several time and each time it has not gone without a comment from someone. The little tags says "KISSES". It wasn't until I loaded the photo that I realized the locket was not facing the front, so for a better look go and see Holly. She also has an etsy shop so go and check out Tuscan Road
