True Love

Good morning everyone, time for another Make it Monday linky party, and today we are sponsored by Dr. Digi's house of stamps who has a brand new digital stamping site featuring an amazing range of digi's with a difference, for the crafter with a sense of humour. I have chosen the lovely Derek & Deirdery Dunderton, aren't they wonderful!  There are so many wonderful cards you could make with this lovely image.. my card this week is a love story....  I don't think Dr. Digi had flowers and glitter in mind for this lovely couple, but I couldn't resist lol!  When my Mum saw this fabulous image, she loved it, and said it reminded her of her and my Dad lol!!   My Dad bless him was a little smaller than my Mum, had no hair and always wore a cap, the only thing he didn't have was a moustache... Mum had some glasses like this many moons ago, and always wore a pinny (pinny was short for pinafore ... you would say apron now), but I must say my Mum is much better looking lol!!...

I've added a sentiment in this view

Or you could just have it plain to write your own sentiment

I love how this card turned out... I have been sat with it on my desk for ages and nothing was entering into my brain, then one morning I just did this and that and Voila!!! the card came together lol!!  The lovely papers are from a scrapbook set Nicole sent me from Germany, they are so bright and sparkly.. The lovely flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I glittered them all up with Stardust Stickles the Sentiments are from Create with TLC.. I love this site and Paulette has so many free sentiments too! I do find it hard to make funny cards, I can never think of the right sentiment, but I always manage to find something on Paulettes blog to help me....  The flower I made myself with a Joy Daisy Die, have been looking for one for ages and finally got one from Ebay...  The image was coloured with my beloved Prisma Pencils.... Oh! and I used glossy accents on their glasses, always scared to use this last, as if it goes wrong....oooh! I shudder to think lol!!!
