Textures, fabric, stamped ink and papers. Torn and sliced, ripped with technique. Embellishments and buttons, ribbon and flair, design and graphics an ensemble which reflects long lasting memories to express the art of conveying a language. The language of love, celebration, comfort and encouragement.

Together are my collections of Creative Cards which simply brings about the very “nature of giving”
I guess it wouldn't surprise you to hear I am late again for the Twisted Sister Challenge - and I was doing so well too, but what can you do - you may have to 'brace yourself' for my next comment...ready....here goes...'there is life outside of stamping' ( I can't believe I just said that) and sometimes we have to prioritize!! Anyway, enough of that....
This card is for the Twisted Sister Challenge where we are to make a card with number 4 on it, from memory it is a Valentine card. I have used this gorgeous Anya, sent to me in a RAK from my Twisted Sister Peggy (aka Marilyn Prestonn) Thanks Peggy - this is the first Anya I have coloured - I hope I am doing okay with it...she is adorable!! That number 4 nearly didn't make it onto the card - I have added it into the sentiment on the photo corner - have to be honest and say I was about to photograph this card and then realised - I wrote it by hand, but may change that after - I am not fussed on my handwriting - it lets the card down. in my opinion.
I chalked the image, distressing the edges and sponging with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distressing Ink and then rubbing the SU Old Olive Ink Pad around the edges to defne them a bit more and not make the pink so stark! I have attached it onto layered DP using the CCEE Stamperssketch, which I really enjoyed doing.
The bow has been made with Bow-Easy using lace, I am getting more confident with it - I guess the more you use it the better you get - lace is very 'forgiving!' I have secured it with a button brad, adding a sponged flower to the top corner and also adding a button brad.
Thanks for looking and for you lovely comments, I appreciate your support - blogging would not be fun without you! I hope you are having a lovely weekend, it started off cool here and we got out into the garden to 'find it' and then it has just gotten hotter as the day has progressed. We are inside with the air coinditioner on at the moment!! I hope you are staying cool/or warm, depending on where you are!! God bless you!
