Pretty Vintage

This is the card I made for my mother in law and I love this image from a sheet by Pion.  Its a 12 x 12 sheet full of vintage girls/children called Little Sweeties, just beautiful.

I have used my last square doily for this one as well.  The lace is from the Ribbon girl and a selection of flowers to finish.

I made it into work today with no problems, lets hope that's the last of the snow.

For Mum

Well guess what the snow was falling this morning and it was a horrible drive. I got so far and then sat stationary in traffic for ages.  Complete grid lock,  in the end I trurned around and went home 4 hours to go ten miles.  Bizarrely ,  it is now a lovely sunny day, go figure!  I will have to make up the time now but at least I am safe.

This card I made for my mum.  I was suffering a major case of card makers block and really struggled with it.  The dress form is from Craft work cards and the papers are from Pion.  The little wooden bobbins is very cute and I wrapped some stampin up thread around it and the lace was gathered to make a little skirt. My craft room looks a tip after the mammoth effort to make this!!

Its been snowing here all afternoon and so cold.  Thankfully it has not settled so far.  A bit worred about my drive to work tomorrow.  My son had his birthday and is now the proud owner of a fab new smart phone. I thought this Mo Manning image would be very apt!  I have coloured it with copics and the papers are from Stampin Up.  

Hope you keep safe and warm and thanks for stopping by.
