Just Because

Hi, and welcome!

Most of the snow we had, over the weekend, has turned to slush.......pffhh.......only had a chance to take a couple of short walks in all the pristine stuff......hope we get more, soon, ha!

Had Millie (15 months old), and Yvie-Grace (22 months old), here today.......they are delightful little girlies, even if I am biased.....and they were later joined by Millie's big sister, Olivia (6).......Olivia and I were trying to colour-in cupcake stamps........didn't last long with the help of the teenies....haaaaa!

Church was cancelled, yesterday, because many roads were closed, due to the snow, and driving was a nightmare, so I had some extra time to play......woohoooooo..........and this is what I came up with........

It's going in my Just Because/Just in case stash........not many in there, at the mo........
The DPs are from a Brenda Walton scrap kit, as is the sentiment (epoxy sticker), and I love the warm tones of these papers, even though I've coloured up the Lilli of the Valley image in pastels......

Love this the girlieness (new word I just made up!) of it!  Used my Promarkers, and a teeny bit of sparkly Mod Podge....yum.......

More sparkle on the Marianne's diecut flutterby......pwetty-pwetty......

The heart is cut from kraft card, and I chose not to poke out the bits that were supposed to be poked out, because I like it the way it is...haahaaa!  Oh, I'm such a rebel..........
I popped on some of my rolled flowers.....need to make some more ofdem....

The corner dies are from one of my Nesties....don't ask which one 'cos I've mixed 'em all up, and don't now know what they are all  called....told you I was a rebel, heehee.....

Off to watch Coronation Street.......

  12. ohhhhh a stamp to add to the long wish list. What a lovely card with a lot of beautiful details.

  13. So pretty! The pastels work so well with the neutrals! LOVE the netting flowers!! LOL at your rebel side! Half of my stuff has been around so long, I don't remember who made it, much less what it was called!
    We have yet to have a real snow here...

  14. We got the tiniest bit of snow too...but it became rain which was better than the ice it left last week! What a crazy winter! Always love reading about your wonderful family...and I can't believe how adorable this card is! Your coloring is amazing. Being the rebel that I am, I love all your rebellious touches!
