Falling into you


I made this card so it could be schedule for today while I should of been away. It's using the fabulous sketch on Sketch Saturday this week.
For a change I got out the doily punch which I'm sure doesn't like me cos it played up something awful. I was also thinking of pleating the card down the side but decided for quickness to just score lines a quick alternative.
The papers are doodlebug and the flowers are combination of retro flowers, a ek success flower and circles punches, the idea was to make them look like the ones on the paper.
Who can forget the sweet mouse from Penny Black and to finish the Magnolia swirl.
Well we've a reasonable amount of snow that has caused total chaos in Surrey and the South East, so much for the County being prepared when all the main routes were classed as dangerous.
I was so please that DD couldn't change her holiday for the MIL visit and was at home. But she was determined to have the decs done and I even  tried to put her off by saying the living room had to be dusted and vacuumed didn't stop her. So instead of putting them up the week before Christmas I got the up nearly the whole month. Bah Humbug.

Hi Debby
lovely bright card, just right on a bleak VERY cold morning. I have spoken to such a lot of crafter's that have a problem with this M.S doily punch, mine just WON'T work any more. When I took it back to the shop, they said it was because it was an itricate pattern, and they would NOT replace it. I was really hacked off, as I hadn't used it very much, and they are not the cheapest of punches.
hugs
