No time....

It is now 8 days since my last post and I have no idea where the time has gone. I have been busy with stuff at the club and travelling a fair bit but I honestly haven't had any 'ME' time at all - except for an hour and a half yesterday - when I made this.
I used up a few scraps of lace which had been cut off from an original length - the only way I could get them to fit was to make this diagonal shape!
The backing paper is from my stash (which STILL doesn't seem to be getting any smaller) and I stitched it onto some coordinating paper, distressing the edges lightly.
The image is of course from ADFD and I coloured her with promarkers and added a fair bit of glamour dust to make her wings sparkle!
The scalloped frame was cut from the same colour backing paper as were the two 'trellis' corners.
This solitary rose was lying on the desk and although I think the pic makes it look quite red, it is in fact a deep lush pink colour!
Just added a couple of pearls, a sentiment and decorated the inside to match.

So my blogging buddies, please accept my apologies if I haven't been round visiting you all this week. I promise to try and play catch up in a couple of days - I am in the middle of the maddest month ever - I have two four day visits to the National Championships over the next 2 weeks then a 12 day stay coming up. Am hoping that on the couple of days I have back at home the middle of next week I will be able to 'wind down' a bit before getting 'wound up' again!
Hugs from me -and if you've left me a comment - THANK YOU!! x

  17. I am in awe Viv. Everything about this card says "it took Awhile" but 1.5 hours? I absolutely LOVE this card. It is simple enough to allow the sentiment to be shared with the image for impact. Excellent! - Jim
