Tonic Plus Peony

Good afternoon
Today as we dont have a crafty catz post as we are still on holiday till 1st week in september .I thought i would share a card I made with a new die Plush peony.
I had some lovely A4 card which I folded in half then folded the front in half again.
Die cut my die and cut the flowers several times to create the flowers for the front.
Coloured the flowers with distressed inks and added Tonic drops in the centre.
Some ribbon and mirri card and a wooden sentiment stamp.
The Die I double heat embossed with gold then green to give a aged look and set onto a gold background cut with the outside edge of the die
Well hope you like and it was a change not to do any colouring.

Well have a lovely day the clouds are drawing in here and they say we are in for some more thunder and lightening so off to walk the dog before it start.
Bye for now

Elizabeth Bell Open card

Good morning well no crafty catz challenge this week as we are on holiday.
So i thought i would share with you a little card I made with an Old Elizabeth bell stamp.
I used to collect these from Sugar nellie when i started Crafting and this along with Daisy is one of my faves.
A Clean and Simple card with no sentiment so I could just send it for all occassions
This has actually gone to a friend just to say Hi and i was thinking of her.

OMG i used to have a waist like that and hair that long many moons ago.
Image coloured with promarkers and stitched square die.
DP is from a very old pad and ribbon from stash.
Well hope you like and have a great day.
Bye for now
