It's been a while!!

Hi Everyone. Well, it's been a while since my last post! Not like me I know, but I have had lots of little things to do! Which, like your probebly know, lead into one really big thing that you wish you never started!! So it has left me little time to blog :-(I have still been crafting though, and here are a couple of projects I have been working on..I coloured 3 pieces of pre embossed card stock using Broken China Distress Ink.Matting each piece with some light Blue Mirror cardand adding them to my Easel Card.I'm not quite sure what the embossing is, a Star Burst, Firework, Snowflake? But they were crying out for a little bit of bling to be added to the centres!!
A few posts back you may recall that I sent a card off to Marianne from Marianne Designs? Not only did she send me a Designers Badge for my Blog but she also sent me some goodies to play with.. In fact she sent my the whole of her August releases!!This was one of them.. Which I cut out several times onto some light Blue Glitter Card.Attaching them to my base card with a die cut sentiment which was White, but I coloured using the Broken China Distress Ink to keep the Blue theme going through the card.I also made one in Pink & Red.. using Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress Inks instead of the Broken China...
Thanks for checking us out.
