I hope you all had a good weekend, and the weather was kind to you. I had a hectic weekend and I'm hoping that this week is going to be kind.
I have taken a couple of photo's of my visitors to my hanging peanut pot.
Hope you like the card.

Firstly I matt and layered my black card with Pink and white card and embossed the white card with Sue's Rambling Rose EF. I then matt and layered a smaller layer but before I embossed the white card I made an aperture with Sue's Toronto die, embossed it then put sticky pads on the back for dimension. Before inserting the focal element I cut a square of sticky sheet to the pink card and added the Iced Snow. I then used all the other dies from the Toronto collection to make a sunken focal point stamped it with perfect medium and used the silver embossing powder and heat embossed it,and also cut the tag from the Canadian collection, stamped my sentiment on it and attached it to the centre with sticky pads, and then placed it inside the aperture. I cut 4 corners from the Canadian Collection and placed in all 4 corners of the card. The flowers were made from Sue's Configurations- Dainty Lace Edger die. I cut this out 4 times for each flower, and cut off the fancy edges. to make the stamens I used the off cuts from the die. If anyone would like me to do a step by step tutorial I'm happy to do one. I placed a dazzler in the centre and scrunched the flower for movement. I hope all of this makes sense, if not leave a message and I will message you back.
Just a couple of pictures of my visitors. The Squirrel has taken up residence with a do not disturb sign, and when she does leave to bury her nuts in the garden the baby dove flies in for a meal. When the squirrel has buried her nuts she comes back to take up residence again, the baby dove sits on a branch watching her chomping away and in the mean time the rooks are swooping down and start eating the squirrels newly buried nuts. And we think we have a hard time!
I hope I haven't bored you all to much with such a long blog this week. Talk to you all soon. Take care all.
