May you have a Spellbinding day!

Hello again and I'm back as promised, a little later than planned but as always there is a good reason behind that.  After a busy weekend at M & S and through at The Papeterie in Aberdeen, today I enjoyed a day in the garden sorting it out and potting out the rest of my bedding plants and having a good old tidy up. 
It is glorious up here today, as the song goes....."the sun is out, the sky is blue, there's not a cloud to spoil the view!"
Plus my garden is now looking a lot better than it was.
I've even managed lunch out and a couple of dog walks.  I will be tired tonight.com.  Far too much excitement for one day!

Back to the first of my card samples for Aberdeen and this is a re-jig of one I made earlier as it was so popular.


For this card I used Spellbinder embossing folder Framed Petite labels together with Nestabilities die labels 21 and Shapeabilities die Fancy tags 2.  The key and lock are from the D-lites die Love locket.
To make the card I coated the folder with Versa mark ink and then put it through the Calibur.  I then coated  the card with Perfect pearls silver powder.  The dies were then placed on top and the sentiment from Inkadinkadoo Thoughts for the day was added together with a satin bow and pearls.
I love the shimmer you get from this technique, you really need to give it a go....it looks so much better in real life and perfect for Wedding and Anniversary cards.

That's all from me today...back tomorrow with more.  Enjoy the sunshine.
