It's Girlie....

Hi there, and welcome!

Had a good day, today........made a quick card, had a little play with some goodies I unearthed in my craft room....yep.....unearthed.......you read it rightly........it's like goin' on an archaeological dig when I'm lookin' for somethin' in there.....really need to have a tidy up.....would probably leave me much more time to actually craft, if I was a tidier ickle crafter....Ha!
And....I lost 1  and a half pounds at Fat Club!!  Yippeeeeeee........might be able to actually fit in the airplane seat when we set off for New York, after all.......lol!

Before I forget.....(as if I could..ha!)....please check in tomorrow to see what I did for my first DT card for stretchnbubbles.blogspot.com........I was soooooooo nervous about doin' it....but it was a whole lotta fun, believe me!

Here's the itty-bitty one I did today..........I have quite a few peeps that I need to thank........not goin' to mention any names....but could this be wingin' its way to yoohoo?.......

Used some Craftworks Cards lilac cardstock as the base.......it has a lovely texture to it........I followed a layout I saw in a magazine (I think the designer was Kathie Rodgers)....easy-peasy......

The lace is cut with a Martha Stewart punch...used a scrap of pale yellow patterend paper.......layered on a piece of Madame Royale DP.....love the glitter on it, but it's hard to see in my photo...sorry.......and used that gorjuss dark purple ribbon to "frame" the DP........

I cut some bits of pale lilac netting, and some toning papers, and rolled them into rosebuds.......sort of, lol..........diecut some leaves, and very arteeeeestically arranged 'em behind me roses.........

Added a sentiment label (from QVC), popped up on foamies.....and those sparkly gems, which started out clear, so I dabbed 'em with a pink Sharpie...............and Robert's your uncle!

Girlie enuff for ya, Petra?

Let me know what you think....I know you will, lol!
