Miss You


Good Sunday morning!  Cream and brown for today's offering, so something a bit different.  I started with a piece of cream card and letterpressed it using the Scrolled Heart folder and Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink, giving it a tonal look.  I cut two of the Chantilly Lace Edger borders in milk card and glued them to the sides, adding strips of cream pearls to each.  Next I cut the Sophia die several times in milk card.  I backed one in chestnut brown card and cut the centre out.  I added mounting foam to the back and then cut the other two Sophia dies in half and added them to the top and bottom area of the cut out Sophia die.  I cut the inner die of the Sophia set in both chestnut brown and milk card.  I used the brown as a shadow behind the milk die cut then recessed it into the centre of the card.  I cut the Miss You Mini Expression out of brown card and glued it int he centre.  Milk and brown mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size. 

Just a quick reminder that I have more shows on Hochanda today at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.  Hope you can tune in!

The winner's of this week's Comment Game are:

June Smith!!!
Barbara Gosden!!!
Wendy from Scotland!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue stunning sample again, loving the colour scheme and I love just sitting and looking at it, I bet it's really tactile. Slightly rushed as it's market Sunday so having to set the little black 'craft box' so I can catch up when relaxing later. Enjoy your day at the studio ☺ I'm sure I saw our Sam float by yesterday lol.
Many congratulations to our three ladies enjoy playing with your gift ☺
