COME LET US ADORE HIM



Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a great weekend, as you may have gathered I don't often make cards during the weekend, but usually when time prevails I try to at least make one every day during the week, sometimes I luck out and manage to make two. It just depends on how my creative juices are flowing!! Anyway here is my card for today.
I have used in contrast to the paper some really pretty stitches in shiny gold thread. On the front there are 3 different types of stitches. The card has lots of dimension and embellishments. A little gold ribbon loops at the top of the picture. On top of that there is a little metal plate which has the words "FAITH" on it. The stamp itself has been heat embossed and covered with holographic powder (see the pics for the way it changes color in the light). I have pieced together fabric leaves/flowers and added little gold beads to the ends. The inside coordinates with the outside of the card and has also been stamped and heat embossed in holographic powder. The card comes with a beautiful handmade box envelope to ensure that this card will not get damaged. Look at the pics for much more detail.


This card will be available at http://www.darlingdelights.com/ from 7:00 p.m. this evening.

BACK AGAIN

Hi all,
Well I am back again after a week long vacation, had a fabulous time up in New Braunfels, Tx where my husband and I spent some time with friends. As always on vacations I ate way too much, so my stomach is now being punished. Visited some great shops and as always found a scrapbooking store and picked up some wonderful new embellishments, can't wait to use them. Anyway I am back now and will be posting more this week. Have a great day.
