Hi and Good Morning :)
Now wasnt this picture taken in the last of the summer rays ? lol :)
So todays card is inspired by some more gorgeous and easy to use Cheery Lynn Designs Dies, and a desire to cling to the fresh and bright hues of spring and summer! lol
I started off using a blank 6 x 6 card base, and layered white american crafts cardstock with some scraps of lilac paper. This cardstock was used for all the die cuts, and it cuts like a dream.
I then created my background using the elegant Daisy Lace Frame, and edged it with the Lady Kate Edger. I then stuck down 2 strips from Alisons Ribbons to conceal the join. I coloured my image with PM's and glittered the wings, and matted onto oval stackers and scalloped oval stackers.
I made the lovely sweet flowers using the Daisy Strip die (my favourite flower die ever!) and secured with pearl and glitter brads. The pretty dragonfly and olive branch leaves were added as a finishing touch, along with some white pearls.
All dies used on this card are:
FRM118 - Daisy Lace Frame
B278 - Lady Kate Edger
B335 - Alisons Ribbons
B259 - Daisy Strip
DL152 - Dragonfly
B147 - Olive branches
L-7 - Oval Stackers
XL - 8 Scalloped Oval
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope to see some fabulous entries in our Halloween Challenge this week.
Now... time for a grovelling apology.. :( Most of you will notice I have been missing in blogland for a few months.. this is due to my long standing internet connection issues and supplier.
As I have referred to often, we live very rural, and traditional internet is not an option for us, as we have no telephones or landlines, and therefore satellite internet is all we can obtain. Recently,though, the satellite company Avanti, sold us onto another company - QSat, and to be very honest, their prices and packages are appaling! :( Extortionate would be a better word!
I cannot justify upgrading and paying £50 a month to get only 15gig usage, when most people would use that in a week!.. So.. on their lowest package that I am, (512kbps) I have to make a very small and meagre allowance last a month, and it just doesnt work. It cannot oftentimes even load a picture on a blog, so as much as I love visiting, I cant see anything but red x's :( I have almost quit blogging, and as you will also have noticed, I have stood down from many DT's that I loved, and also am unable to leave comments or visit blogs as my internet is virtually broken. I am hoping that there is some light at the end of the tunnel, and that eventually we can get internet by other means, but until then, im kinda stuck. :(
My biggest apologies to my dearest blogging friends.. I miss you all so much! and your visits still mean the world to me :) As soon as I am back on a proper speed, I will be back with a bang! :)
but until then... have a smashing day and thank you all so much for your support!
