Royal Jubilee card Published!!!!

Hello everybobs !...  well the card this week is a very special one in deed... it has been made for HRH the Queen on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee...

I was approached from committe members of the town partnership of where i live to make the card to send to the Queen for her jubilee.... On disclosing the mamoth task Id been given the lovely peeps over at Docrafts sent me a parcel to help me out.... full of the gorgeous Portobello Road goodies.. I quickly got to work with planning it but didnt rush it as i needed to get it just right,,,

I decided on an easel card design to give me more 'floorspace' to fit in all the elements i wanted to use.
I hope her HRH likes it as much as the people I made it for!!

My card and story has also been published in the Mays copy of Creativity although i have yet to see the article yet as i havent been able to grab a copy as my local stockist hasnt got it yet - i cant wait!

Tim Holtz sewing room '2'

Hello everybobs xx this card is one of my fave cards to make with the brilliantly versatile tim holtz sewing room die. Its like being a little fashion designer hehe!!..

i used good stiff brown card for the dummy which i distressed to add depth. I also utilised a bit of the tim holtz birdcage die to make the skirt. this was teamed up with my all time favourite first edition papers, this one being 'Isabelle'.

The tape measure was made using my newest stamp by maya road which i just purchased.. and the sewing background was made by stamped images from seedee morsels along with a freebie nitwits sentiment.

Flowers were from my flower box mostly bought from haberdasheries across the contry lol
