Lashings of Lace!

Apologies for the photo - my man took it and seemed not to notice that the ribbon was a tad wonky!!!! Hey-ho, you get the idea. This is another card made mainly using dreamees products (www.dreamees.org.uk).

The image is just the cutest digi stamp from the Seasonal Sweeties CD. I've coloured her dress with blossom and pale blossom promarkers - these have a lovely vintage pink feel to them. All other colouring has been done with copics.

The papers are from (my favourite) Back to Basics CD. There are soooo many pretty papers on this CD and it's just really easy to find co-ordinating papers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Dreamees and I think they work quite nicely together. I've never been brave enough to try mixing the two, but it looks just fine!
The bigger butterfly is a Magnolia DooHickey and the sentiment is LOTV.

A fellow Mum at school told me I looked like I was losing a lot of weight and pointed to my face in a concerned sort of way. Well, I haven't! I think fat has gone from my face and migrated to my bottom. I now look drawn and haggard with the world's biggest bum. And, I have a cold sore. Really, ladies, I'm a man magnet right now. lol!!!!

I'm in the process of making another chest of drawers advent calendar with the dreamees products. I'm trying to do some photos so that I have a bit of a tutorial to go with it. I'm hoping to have it done by the weekend but I've just got a bit of a head-scratcher of a magazine commission for the beginning of May so it might get put off until next week!

Happy hugs to all, Jayne xxx
