At last!

Hi folks hope you're all having a fab weekend. Hope the weather is better where you are its been dreadful here so wet and windy.

Anyway, I've finally got around to finishing of my first easel card. I've had my coloured Tilda hanging around for at least a week but I had a project I needed to finish for my mum. She wanted a 30th anniversary card she said but supplied me with a whole heap of photos and asked if I could use them, so what started off as a card turned more into a mini scrapbook, but its done now but thought I best not show it as they were private photos and I hadn't asked permission and some peeps can be a bit funny about these things, but hey I was so proud of it. Gosh there's no shutting me up is there I'm being a right old waffler. Anyway here's my little creation and for my first attempt at one of these cards I'm really quite chuffed with it.

The oval behind Tilda started off as a normal oval - didn't like that so I got out my Fiskers fancy scissors and cut around it to give it a fancy edge then thought hey I'll ink it up, well what a mistake to make - as I've said before me and distressing just don't mix and what a mess it turned out, so the border you now see around the oval is masking my mess and all I did was punch out loads of little snowflakes from pink glitter card and stick them all on, but I think it turned out quite well eventually. Added some bling and got out the old stickles (which the camera hasn't picked up) and voila. Oh its sat on its own little box too.
Well I'm off now I'm in the middle of making an advent calender out of matchboxes which I first saw on Debby's fab blog here and I just had to have a go. Check out the rest of her creations they're so beautiful and they always inspire me. So all being well that should be the next thing to show you.
Wherever you are have a great weekend. Take care all.
