I saw the technique used on Jennifer's blog.
Followed a link she put, and saw THIS card from Julee Tilman,
owner and illustrator of Verve Stamps.
This is one brilliantly talented lady and the cards on her blog are awesome!!!
I 'borrowed' her Layout. I do hope she doesn't mind.
Anyway, back to my card.........
Core-dinations CS, embellishments and ribbon from my stash.
I used a Tim Holtz pad thingy to ink the edges of all the CS.
(Must get a pack of re-fills 'coz I love it).
I was dying to use this and Pam & Dan's anniversary
was the perfect choice for my first try at this technique!!!
Thanks for visiting! Viv xx

I counted those who had done as requested and
commented with a link on their blog.
I discounted Jennifer, as she asked not to be included.
This makes Eve number 14.
Please e-mail me your address and I will get your candy off to you.
Thank you once again all who visited and/or participated.
I hope I'll see you all again soon.

How lovely of her to choose my blog! It's really made my day Els, thank you!
I'm supposed to pass this on to six other blogs that inspire me.
I can't do that. It has to go to ALL of you who take the time and trouble
to post a little comment on one of my cards.
THAT'S what inspires me, feeds my desire to improve and grow.
You ALL deserve it!
by my great friend Valli. Thank you Valli!
I coloured her with Marvey Le Plumes while I was on holiday in Caernarfon.
I used my border punches a lot on this! Can't you tell! LOL
SU scallop punch, Nestability rectangle, and my fabulous Martha Stewart Doily lace punch.
Used 'Whale of a Punch photo corner punch. (Ebay US).
Want the proper SU one!! :0(
Distressed the edges with a Heidi Swapp edge distresser. The flowers are part of blog candy I got from Gina. Thank you Gina! CS from my stash and the DPs are Basic Grey..I think!... 'coz
I did this last week and my memory is playing up again. LOL
One day left if you haven't joined my blog candy!
I will be drawing the winner at 10pm Macclesfield time tomorrow! LOL

It's last minute Minnie as usual, but here's my card
for Suzanne's blogaversary candy challenge over on Slumber cards.
The idea is brilliant.
To quote Sue......
'Make a pink card and send it to someone who could do with a little tender loving care. It would be lovely if it was someone who's life has been touched by this terrible disease, but it can be anyone who could do with a kind word and a beautiful card to cheer them up.. I am sure we all know someone'. I do and this card is on it's way to her. ;0)
The challenge is open until the end of the month, so get making those gorgeous cards, tell Suzanne and link to her blog.

I made in between Mum and other stuff.
This one is a mixture of Papermania Christmas papers and SU DP.
SU ribbon and the Reindeer has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder to resemble snow. The flowers are Prima Christmas Bauble flowers.
(I've used the image on the PM papers to supply the greeting on both cards).
The image on this one is a Penny Black Sticker.
I saw the stickers on a roll at Happy Stampers in Derby a few weeks ago.
They are gorgeous and so good for a quick card.
The brads are Papermania and the CS is SU with a Versamarked holly stamp all over it.

Well we're back from windy Wales. Came back a day early as Alan was on his bike and the weather forecast said it would be rain and gales today, so we left yesterday and it was glorious! Typical! No sign of the winds and rain either. The 'Luxury' bungalow was a bit of a stretch of the imagination, but it was OK on the whole. My only gripe was the lack of decent bedding. Harvey loved the beach, as the slideshow will demonstrate.
(Had to do it in two stages, 'coz I can't get a slideshow to load with comments). Doh!
I did a lot of stamping and colouring, but got bored with it after a while. I didn't take any papers or card to make the images up into cards. I won't be leaving them behind next time. LOL I've enjoyed the break and watching Harvey run free, but I'm also happy to be home. Off to see what I've been missing on my favourite blogs now! :0)
