Set your Heart on Something Beautiful....

Hi All,

Many Thanks to you all for your get will wishes, they have been much appreciated. I have been told by the docs today that it will probably take about 6 weeks to get I guess it will be less talking more crafting!!

Had a meeting with my boss today, who is based in Elgin, which as most of you know is also the home of "Paper Boutique" where all our lovely Sugar Nellies live, so of course I had to pop is such a lovely shop to have a good wander round, thourally enjoyable!!!

Now my card, I am not sure if I like this one,

The paper is from "DCWV - all about girls stack" I had been using this sheet of paper for other cards and this bit was left over, I love it with the scallops, the journaling tag and the I literally just stuck it onto 5"x7" card, and wondered what to do next...

I thought the sentiment might work well for a wedding 4 of my friends got engaged at the end of last year and I was making cards for all their friends and family thought I should make a start on wedding ones now!! so I stamped the " Lili of the vally" stamp directly onto the paper, then stamped it up another couple of times coloured with copics and her dress has also been painted with "twinkling H20's - Oyster" and I decoupaged them up.

Finally to try and create a bit of interest I have added the flowers, the pearls and bling..
not sure, but I will be interested to hear what you all think!

This is my entry for:

Die Cut Dreams - New Beginnings

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls


  1. Hi Juls,
    Great card. I love the layout and the curved frame. The colours are gorgeous and that couple are just incredibly beautiful.
    Six weeks - hopefully the doc is being a bit pessimistic and that you are back to you best before then.
