Engagement Card

Good Afternoon fellow bloggers.
I did a card last week for my Son and his Partner for their engagement. I used K & Co papers, bazzill CS and the stamped image was from the Love set from Crafters Companion. SU wording and the pin and pearls etc was also SU.
I made the envelope box with the Crafters Companion board.
Have a great day, although it is wet and dreary here in Cornwall today.
Thanks so much for visiting.

Sugar Nellie Golden Oldies

Hi all. Over at the Sugar Nellie blog they have been looking back to when the stamps were first introduced and have challenged us to use our 'Golden Oldies'. This is one of the very early ones from the Luca & Nellie set. I have stamped her on whisper white, coloured with Copics and then using Rach's tutorial for nestabilities outside the frame and it worked. Thanks Rach. Distressed edges with tattered rose DI. Background paper SU and plain pink paper is Making Memories. Stitched with sewing machine and added flowers from SU set coloured with SU inks. Scallop oval and sentiment both SU. Had fun looking at my older stamps. Thanks for the challenge.
As always really enjoy reading your comments. Thanks for visiting.
