I almost forgot to share this with you, just found it on my memory card !
This was my 'card' for Neil this Valentine's day.
It's actually a little tag book ( I think it is called a flag book in America) and was a class I attended with Linda, thanks hon - loved the class and the little book and so did Neil
I added a little pocket to the inside front cover when I got home, as I had bought Neil a magazine subscription as his Valentine gift and I wanted to include the details.
I added a photo of the two of us together in the back, he keeps nagging me for new photos and I can see why when I look at the photo. I was a size 16 here and a full two stones heavier than I am now, I have dropped down to a comfortable 12 and still have a little way to go. Why is it that we don't truly realise how chunky we are until we see a photo of ourselves ?
And a view of all the little tags (or flags)
They have all been decorated with Stampin' Up punches, stamps and die cuts.
The class was fabulous and fun, Linda is such a good teacher and has lots of tips and tricks up her sleeve, she also has oodles of patience. I did behave myself and Anita kind of did - just don't mention the glue !!!
It was also my lovely niece Katie's birthday yesterday, she turned 14 ( happy birthday Katie - love you xxx)
I created the background with Distress inks in Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord. I then spattered on some water and dried with my heat tool before stamping and embossing the images in black.
The sentiment was computer generated.
A second bouquet to share this week, this beautiful bunch of bulbs was given to me by Rose, thankyou so much, they are so bright and cheerful xxx
As I am signing of with a photo of some lovely flowers, I thought I would add a floral quote too.
I'd rather have roses on my table,
Than diamonds on my neck.
