Fine and Dandy Thursday

So it was all stop yesterday so I could use this gorgeous punch around the page punches, isn't it gorgeous. It's called Cherish and I ordered it from Simon Says Stamps and when it arrived it had to be used straight away. Can you image a 12 inch layout using it, they will be in my tote bag on Saturday when I go to MJ All day crop.
The top secret parcel, well all I can say its a good job a brought a bulk lot of easi-mount at Ally Pally.
May be not the best card in the world but I didn't want to hide punched mat, the papers are My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy. The swirls are EK Sucess punch, leaves Leone-em punch, some flowers, a bit of lace and a sentiment, job done. The image is one of Mo Manning's but this one is actually a Stampavie stamp.
I didn't really have a challenge in mind when making this card but I think there enough embellishments to be able to enter in A Spoonful of Sugar this week.
I had a wonderful e-mail asking me to be on one of my favourite challenges DT, it was one of the hardest things I had to do to say no. I promised my other half not to take on any more DT, on this rare occasion he is probably right, still it was really really hard to do.
Then I found out my Dad is quite poorly he looks after Mum really well but though its a dreadful thing to say its probably a good job she is still in hospital.
No time for card making today.

  26. Debby - what a fab card and I agree - I just love the punch! You've just reminded me, I was going to make my mother and father-in-law a card using one of these Mo Manning images for their Golden Wedding a couple of weeks ago - but I forgot! (They did get a card, I didn't mean I forgot to make a card lol!)
    Hope your Dad and Mum both get better soon - I worry as much about mine and my husband's parents as I do about our children at the moment!
    Love, Andrea xx

  29. Such a perfect card for an older couple's anniversary Debby. Your papers and colours look great as does that super MS PAP punch!

    I can appreciate it must have been very difficult to decline one of your fav DT's but sometimes the reason why appears to us a bit later. I hope you Dad makes a good recovery Debby.

    Yes, I totally hear you about not taking on more design teams. It's a lot of work, and sometimes you just have to step back so you have some breathing space.

  46. I have loved this stamp for a long time but never bought it. Now that I have seen your card I have to get it. I love your work and this card is no exception. The old couple are priceless.
    I wonder if it is ever possible for you to tell us how your coloured your images and with what medium. I think you use copics but I'm not sure.
    Thanks for all your inspiraton.
