Hello gorgeous bloggers and Suze Bain . Another scheduled post from me and an apology , yes another apology. Sorry for not visiting as much as I normally do but as I keep saying all will be revealed in the fullness of time. Also big apology to my lovely boss Kylie at Addicted to Stamps for not coming up with the goods this week but I do promise to make it up to you.
Over at Get Creative its time for our first card challenge of the month and things are back to normal here, with two card challenges two layout challenges and one tutorial, so I do hope you are all refreshed and revitalized and ready to play along with us.
We have something a little different for you this time a beautiful photo to be used purely as inspiration and here it is
Isn’t it gorgeous !
Here is my interpretation
Couldn’t decide which photo liked best so I put both.
Sizzix Bigz die daisies for the flower using lots of mirror card ( what a bugger to photograph ) brass locket with bevelled glass to give appearance of a mirror, lovely sizzix embossing folder for frame. Spellbinders edgeabilities and matching stamps by Just rite Stamps.
