Today is my first official post as a DT member for Sassy Lil Sketches and I’m so excited. This is the sketch that we had to work with great fun and endless possibilities.
I made my card using Webster pages and used my big Shot to make some flowers yes I admit it I should have been a florist in a former life ! Lovely pink lace for the border and just peeping out from underneath a scalloped border made with paper. The sentiment is embossed using SU embossing powder and stamps.
Please drop by Sassy Lil Sketches and see what the rest of the design team came up with I’m sure you wont be dissapointed ! There is a different sketch each Tuesday for layouts and Thursdays for card makers and always plenty of inspiration to be found. You can also join in the Sassy Lil Sketches forum a great community where help and advise is always on hand plus lot’s of interesting topics , tips and discussions whatever your interest.

Now more amazing news ! I won Crystal Clears shaking Hands Across the World Blog giveaway away a fabulous signed print by Crystal how about that ! As soon as I take possession I will share it with you all ! Do pop over and see her blog it’s amazing and has something for everyone .
I’m not finished yet ! There’s more ! I received fabulous mail art from a swap I did with Valerie at Bastelmania . I off course got the better part of the swap as I’m sure you will all agree !
This is one of her amazing mini books lot’s and lots of gorgeous pages jam packed with fabulous elements, these photo’s do not do them justice !
I also received these unique tags which are a joy to behold so much detail and texture, mini works of art.. Thank you so much for these beauties Valerie you can rest assured they will be treasured. There where in fact two little mini canvasses in the package but my artist son has purloined them before I managed to take a photo and am awaiting their return will share them with you once they are returned to their rightful home !
Have just been commissioned to make 250 thank you cards and envelopes for a friends daughters wedding so if I haven’t passed by of late it’s because I am crossed eyed and dizzy from all of the stamping, gluing and sticking !
That’s all my news, must dash Bailey and Rosy are whimpering at my feet and hubby is about to do the same ( it’s lunch time )

I am still in awe, with every post you have, amazing projects and cards, Your post brought a fabulous project, you lucky girl 🙂
Gorgeous DT card, Marie! I love that lace!
A little short on pews here, but did manage to grab a little drinkie poo when I realized you weren't kidding about the length of your post. (Only teasing! honest). I am a little concerned though as there does seem to be something consistently amiss these days … flowers? cards? upper right hand corner? hmmmmm. Have you sought help? Must say though I am in LOVE with your creation today. It's absolutely stunning. The colours, the placement, the elements, perfection. AND … the sentiment … talk about one stamp does it all. How clever, and I actually like it. Swapping with Valerie is an experience of sorts, wouldn't you say? Her work is so awesome opening the envelope is akin receiving little gifts from Tiffany's. It truly is a pleasure. Hope your son is not burried ender ink, stamps and emblishments. A great little commission though! I'd better shut up now … :o) xxDonna
Love your swap goodies Marie – they look very gorgeous! Your DT card is fab – and i'm impressed with your flowers! I am persevering the the MC rose dies, I think i'm rolling them wrong, lol, as they're just not looking very good at all! Maria x

What a gorgeous card Marie – I love the colours and those fabulous flowers (especially the one on the top LEFT-hand corner! I see you're branching out!) You get some very exciting mail too! As for a husband whimpering at your feet, it's always worth waiting those few extra minutes…! Vx
