Hi there to my blog friends, I do hope you are all well and keeping warm. I have some news which I would like to share with you! I entered a card into Lady Anne's Challenge blog and she emailed inviting me to be one of her DT members. I am really pleased to have been asked and am girding my loins to enter my first card shortly! I will give you more details about this when I can.
Well, this is the real post for today and one I nearly forgot about!!! I made this card just after Christmas but couldn't post it until I had sent it to my friend Suzie from http://suziescards.blogspot.co.uk/. Suzie is the fantastic lady who started my blog for me - me being totally phobic about technology! She still helps me and answers my questions now, 6 months later!
I know she has a Cocker Spaniel called Rosie and I had this gorgeous LOTV stamp with two little dogs on it so thought it would 'sort of fit' for the occasion. If my memory is correct I seem to remember that Suzie likes these colours.
I used my Grand Nestabilities - Large Scallop and cut three from some White Centura Pearl card. I used eyelets to secure two together and then threaded some purply ribbon through. Then I made it into an easel card using an inner circle of Bazill Basics and edged it with peel-offs to make it stand out.
The image was cut with another Spellbinders die - Grand Decorative Circles, this one being the smallest circle.
The border strip along the centre of the card and either side of the front panel is an EK punch - it took me a while to get the hearts opposite each other when I punched it. I then used a small peel off chain down the middle of this border to give it a little oomph! The sentiment is one I found on the internet (a freebie), I'm not fond of really sugary sentiments myself so I think this one is just right.
Suzie said she liked it so I was quite pleased with myself - yay!!!

I hope you like this card. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog - you know by now that I can waffle for England - wish it was an Olympic Sport! I hope you have left a comment for me to read, I really am grateful for your continued support.
Big hugs to you all
