Shabby Love

Phew - I am just scraping in with this deadline, which is midnight tonight Sydney time for the Let's Get Shabby Challenge - and it is 11:45pm!!! This week we are to use gingham and flowers - I think I am pretty safe with this one. It is also for the MOJOTERESA Challenge for today!

I have used chalks to colour the image, which I won in Blog Candy for Sharon and this is the first time I have inked it up, but won't be the last! I have used DP and embossed CS for the different panels and have sponged around all of them! Lace and ribbon have been added along with the gorgeous flowers that arrived in a RAK form the lovely Sabrina and added some silver embellies!!

I need to get some anniversary cards done for one of the Boutiques that sell my cards, so thought this might be a great image...I do try and keep the sentiments fairly 'generic' so they can be used for a number of occasions, I also try to make two cards at a time!

Well, time to kink this and get to bed - thanks for dropping in...and for your kind comments...you make my day!! God bless you!


  1. OMGosh, Linda!!!! This is so very stunning, my friend!!! I love the coloring job you did. Everything is just perfect. You never cease to amaze me with what you do with little scraps of paper. They all ALWAYS go so well together. Darn it, why do you live so far away? :D:D:D Stunning shabby chick card, girl, love it!!! Hugs, Sabrina
