Hello chaps, Monday evening it is. Did you know that today was supposed to be the busiest day for cyber-shopping? I confess I did a little of that this morning but only for part of His Nibs Christmas present. Mind you, having just checked my bank balance (still got 9 nine days til payday) I think I might be able to squeak in a little shopping just for me too!
Now then, do your men only hear what they want to? When I told him I had been asked to make this card his response was Why would you want a slapper on your card? Oh good grief, no dear, that's FLAPPER with a F, not a S ......... I despair sometimes.
Our caretaker at work is a lovely little fella and he was looking through my box of cards last week to find one for his wife. Not for any particular occasion, a just because card. Anyway, we were chatting and he said that she likes to collect ornamental ladies in period costume. Having established that the 20s and 30s is her favourite era I just knew that this was the right stamp.
Isn't she a doll? He didn't want fussy thankfully as I think the CAS suits her well.
Ingredients for this little card are:
Stamped Image: Lil Lolita - Evie 20s
Colouring Medium: Part Distress Inks, part paper piecing
Papers: K&Co and DCWV scraps
Sentiment: Penny Black (from Hugs clear set I think)
Corners: Lili Of The Valley
No challenges for this one, it's simply a for-the-fun-of-it card.
