Pups With Present


After a crazy 4 days in Yorkshire - where Alan and i went to see 'Vincent And Flavia' in 'Midnight Tango, which was absolutely superb, (in fact it transported us back 7 years to Buenos Aires), we took H to Eureka (Children's Museum in Halifax), and Alan took him to see 'Castleford Tigers v Warrington Wolves', did some retail therapy, including a trip to LOTV, where i was fortunate enough to meet up with the lovely Susan and gee what a shop - not only does it sell all the latest LOTV stamps and paper, but also flowers,dies and pens OMG i could have spent far more than i did :-).

Today's image is one of the ones i bought at the LOTV (and it was Alan's choice), the papers are Papermania - 'Home For Christmas', Punched Frame is MS - 'Snowflake', Bone is PB - 'Bon Mot' but with the sentiment removed and instead stamped with PB - 'Crystalline Transparent Set', Snowflakes Sizzix - 'Snowflake Wonder' covered in Stampin Up - Heat And Stick Powder, then Dazzling Diamonds.

Love this LOTV image. Great frame with the MS snowflake border. This technique can sometimes not work so well (at least for me!) and yours was wonderful. Cute idea with the bone as well. So many delightful touches with your chosen embellishments, and absolutely adored that festive paper. TFS
