Have missed card making

Hi Everyone that regularly visits my blog, and  to those that just view every so often and just passing by, you are most welcome.

Paul and I had a lovely day Monday celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary, we should have gone for lunch but got distracted by caravans. No lunch, but did buy some dies as a form of compensation. I think I did pretty well, as you only get one meal but you get lots of fun from Sue's dies.

I hope you like this card, and Steph, yes I did purchase the butterflies. You know me too well.

Products used:-

8X8black card
C&C mirri board
Black card
Cheery Lynn design-Mexican tile pattern
Sue Wilson decorative frames
Sue Wilson- California decorative frames
Heartfelt Creations- Majestic Blooms
Spellbinders- delicate asters leaf die
Memory box- Butterfly die

Hope you like it

  1. OMG Tina, what a beauty, well worth the wait. That mosaic die is stunning as a background to Sue's dies, what colour mirri card have you used ? Gold ? The EF is really pretty, which one is it ? I did spoil myself and broke the bank the other week and got 2 EF's both vintage, an 8/8 rose and an A4 swirl fern, but I could do with a few more from Sue's collection along with some more of her 1st collection, I knew Id never catch up before she bought her next collection out ! Oh well, as I cant sell my body, I'll have to buy a lotto ticket, then eventually with you as mentor I may start to get my standard up (although will never ever be to your standard) I bloomin wish : )
    I knew you'd HAVE to buy the new butterfly die set Tina lol, its made for your addiction lol.
    No wonder it takes you some time to make one card the amount of love and attention you put into them, boy, they are lush.
    What's that noise I hear - oh yeah, its the whip cracking again lol.
    Glad you and Paul had a nice day yesterday xx

    love n hugs.

  2. Hi steph

    It is C&C pastel mirri card,and i think it is lemon or pale gold, can't really say other than it comes under their pastel mirri card. Sorry!! Order No:- 298 666. hope this helps, I bought it on one of their big give aways.

  3. Hi Tina,
    This is stunning. Your cards are so feminine, with loads of detail. Your flowers are works of art themselves.
    Glad you both had a good day out for your anniversary. Fun to spend a day together.

  4. Hi Steph Did I really say lemon, I was looking at the card next to this one. I meant to say peachy/pink. Doh!!

  5. Good morning Tina,
    Beautiful absolutely beautiful, I just LOVE everything you have done on your card.
    Glad you had a good day Monday. The purchase of the Dies will last a lot longer then a lunch. You will even be able to enjoy them for ages. One lunch verses hours of fun/pleasure I know which I would choose!!!
    Did you purchase a Caravan???
    Have a great day
