Specialy for you

Hello friends,
It feels like Monday, but Yippee... it is Wednesday... I guess that's what happens when there are a couple of holidays either side of the weekend.
I would like to sat a big hello to me new friends that are following my blog. Thank you for coming..hope you will come back often, and that I can inspire you with some of my creations.

I had a chance yesterday to do some playing ...I had been to  Country Crafts last week and Joan had just got in some new stock..I had a problem...wanted so much.. I came away with a couple of new dies, stamps, and papers...but the paper was mainly for the next set of workshops.  I made the following card just for fun using a couple of the new items.

The DP was Making Meories..Vintage Findings. I had a piece in my stash...just sufficient for this card. I also used some on the inside to finish it off. combined with some plain blue cardstock.
I used a new Creatable die from Marianne Designs LR0214 to cut out and emboss the corner.
The image is  also a new one from Marianne Designs..Vintage ladies. Coloured with Distress inkpads, cut out with a Nellie Snellen MFD and the edges all inked with Vintage photo.
Added lace, a punched out flower...Nellie Snellen floral punches.. some narrow ribbon and pearls to finish it off.
I added a tag with the sentiment. Depending on who the card goes to, I can change the tag.

I  usually  battle with vintage, but this one I think came together quite easily and I enjoyed it.

I will be entering it in the following challenges:
Chocolate Coffee and Cards challenge..Bingo...I used  ..distress, lace, emboss.
Dutch Dare Card challenge...Mother/ special lady
Dream Valley challenges..For a special lady
Addicted to Stamps challenge..Mother's day...Card for a woman.
PapertakeWeekly Anything goes/option with lace

Thanks for looking, would love you to leave a comment.
Take care and see you soon.
