The more candles the bigger the wish!

Morning all!

Happy New Year!

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. It's been a hectic few weeks what with Christmas, New Year and work, and to add to that I get married in 60 days, so I'm busy trying to sort out last minute preparations!

I've not really been in my craft room much since before christmas but I have managed to make a card for my friends birthday next week which I though I'd share with you.




and a simply decorated inside......



Materials

CS: SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink

Paper: SU Designer series in Old Olive and Rose Red (Retired)

Image: Retired SU Sale a bration set, coloured with Stampin Markers & Blender pen

Sentiment: SU retired sale a bration set , SU Sincere Salutations (inside)

Tools: SU Scallop Trim Border punch, SU Scallop circle and circle punches. Ink in Rose Red.

Misc: Sponges for inking/distressing the edges. Pearls from stash


It took me a while to do this card. Think my mojo went wandering over christmas. I always find it a bit difficult to get back into my crafting after I've had a bit of a break.

I have so much stash one of my new years resolutions is to use up some of the old instead of forever buying new. So I though I'd start the year as I mean to go on and have used some of my old stash (papers and stamps) on this card nad combined it with a couple of new items I got over christmas (scallop trim punch & scallop circle punch). Wonder how long this resolution will last!!!

Well thanks for stopping by. Must dash and get ready for work!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

I have the same resolution as you Vicky, not to keep buying and use some of the stash I already have.

Love the card, especially the sentiment. You must be very excited about your wedding, not long to go!
