Evening everyone! Hope you're week is going well! I'm not sure where the time goes! Anyways got a new card to show you! Been having a play with some of the fab Paper Make up Stamps-LOVE their Sentiments-there's just something for everything-even when there's nothing left to say!

So this gorgeous sentiment is one I've been hoarding for a little bit and have just got round to using-you can snag it here. Also dug out my Tim Holtz papers-Vintage Shabby -I think these are my fave set, they're just so pretty!

I stitched all the edges of the paper, distressed them and then added lots of Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Silver. I actually started off following a sketch but it just doesn't even resemble it now I seem to have gone off on a tangent. But I am going to enter this card over at the Crafty Pad whose challenge is Girly.

Next week I must upload some pics of my new kitten I got for my Birthday-she's adorable! and aptly for this post she's actually called Star!

See you soon and thanks so much for stopping by!

Remember Me?!

Hello!! Wow it's been a long time!! But I'm back from having a blog and DT break which I needed to keep up with Christmas orders in my Etsy shop. I'm so glad to be back with Quixotic Paperie-thanks Elaine for having me back!!

And I'm back with a funky Birthday card to show you that I made last night! A while ago Elaine sent me this fab Kraftin Kimmie stamps-Vivienne and I've been dying to get her coloured up! I decided to go for a classy black and white theme with a splash of colour coming from the peacock feathers. The papers are an old DCWV Creme de la creme stack-an oldy but a goody!

The flowers are made with some punches and I added a Prima flower centre-can't beat them for sparkle! Oo the sentiment is also 1 of 2 sentiments that actually come with the stamp-bargain!

Here's a little inside shot! Grabbed a MS punch to fancy up the inside corners!

Don't forget if you haven't checked it out already there's a big sale on at Quixotic Paperie-who can resist a January sale!

Ooo it's good to be back!! If anyone is interested in purchasing this card it will be up in my Etsy shop shortly in this section here.

Thanks for stopping by! Me and hubby are off out shortly for a meal and to catch a film at the cinema as it's my Birthday today-28! See you soon! Rowena xxx
