You're Wonderful

Good morning everyone, it's a real winters day here in Yorkshire, cold, wet and blowy bbrrrr!!! Santa's on his way lol!!  I think I only realized that yesterday when the calender went forward and there, with a red ring around it, was the date when my lovely family from Germany arrive!! eek!! it's only three weeks away and still so much to do lol!! We went away for the week-end to Debs and had such a relaxing time, went to the Christmas Vintage Fair at Worcester, and had mulled wine, and roasted chestnuts mmmm!!! and the weather was very kind to us too!!

Anyway onto my card for 'Papertake Weekly'... which is 'Anything Goes' with the option of making a Christmas gift or decoration.  I haven't had much time this week for myself, so I would like to share this card I made for a special lady who I met whilst shopping for crafty goodies, and we have become quiet good friends, you can see her fabulous blog here.

The gorgeous paper is from a pad by Craftwork Cards called 'Time Flies' and the sentiment is a LOTV Verses and Quotes stamp (Set 61) which I stamped straight onto the paper, no colouring required lol!.. I added black pearls and ribbon and a lovely butterfly from Magnolia it also has black pearls on but doesn't show on the photo's  and a filigree corner from La La Land.
Isn't this little tag gorgeous... I won a lovely prize from Bugaboo digi stamps and this is one of the images I chose. ( I wouldn't of known if it wasn't for Carole... she told me to check my challenges:).. I coloured the little butterflies with my inktense pencils to match the papers...

Now you could win a fabulous prize too as LOTV are sponsoring our challenge this week and are giving the winner a lovely voucher to spend in there shop.. do pop across to the main challenge blog and see what amazing makes my lovely teamies have for you this week, there is a lovely lady joining the team this week too!!

Marjorie you asked in your comment on my blog if i used a bow maker, I did buy to new big one from Create and Craft but I prefer to use my fingers the bows seem to look much nicer, I use the technique that I first saw Jal Heath use, hope this info is of use, lol.
