Wee Ruby Love Birds

Good Morning,

Wow, 2 days on the trot, a record for me of late.
I'm here to share a card I made for an order from a lady who recently celebrated her 100th Birthday.
Something tactile was the brief so she could feel her way round the card as her eyesight is not 100%. So used lots of layers, glitter stickles, pearls, ribbon & peel offs. 

Image - Wee stamp Love Birds freebie
Coloured with - markers & stickles
Papers - LOTV & Dreamees
Numbers - cut on cameo
Words - peel offs
Pearls - Dreamees

DV Christmas in July

Good Morning,

How lovely to see the sun shining. A bit too hot to sit in at times! (I'm not moaning)

Today see's a new challenge starting over at 
Dream Valley
The theme being:
Christmas in July
Sponsoring the challenge this week is the fabby:
I was lucky to be given the very cute 'Robin with mistletoe' image which you can purchase here

I coloured the image with markers and chalks, I filled the scarf, brim of hat and pompom with viva pearls then added a sprinkling or glamour dust while wet to give a bit of dimension. The falling snow and that on the ground had crystal ice stickles added to it and the mistletoe berry had viva pearls.

The papers were from LOTV which I believe are no longer available.

The sentiment was stamped using a very old stamp from HOTP

The snowflake die is from Joy Crafts with gems added to the centers.  
Please come and join in this fab challenge here

Have a great day!

The colour of your flag 
as I am from the UK mine is red, white & blue.
