In My Thoughts

Good evening
This is just a quick post to get this card up and apologies for the quality of the photo but I have had to take it tonight.

I fancied making a shabby chic card again for a change and used these challenges for inspiration -
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Polka Dots  - the backing paper is dots as well but doesn't show up too well
The Shabby Tea Room - White and Bright
Simon Says - Bingo and I have chosen Lace (lace paper under the ribbon), flowers and ewmbossing (the frame shape at the top is from an embossing folder)
Crafty Creations - add a bird, polka dots and the colour green
My time to Craft - Spots and Dots

Sandown wasn't too bad today, I got an Ottlite lamp as my bench lamp has broken and this new one is very bright. I also managed to get the ink dusters at a really good price straight from Inkylicious themselves. If you saw them demonstrated on C&C you will know what I am talking about. I have already had a go on this card this evening and think they are going to be excellent to get some very soft effects with the distressing inks.

Have a fab Sunday to finish off the weekend.

Take care and thanks for taking a look here.

Luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

I really like this card even though I'm not normally a huge fan of green. This is so pretty and would fit so very many occasions.

Glad you got your new light and dusters - I've looked at them myself.

Brenda this is beautiful such lovely soft colours, images and embellishments. Can see the dots on the backgrond, or is that spots before my eyes LOL. Love my daylight lamp (not Otlite) sure you will get on well with yours, have you thought of using it to light your work for night time photos? XOXO Zoe
