Marguerite taking Ruben for a walk

I’ve been busy getting a magazine commission finished so today have a card that I made many months ago that I did for Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.  I loved doing that commission, my brief was to make them shabby chic – right up my street lol.  I had to use the Sarah Kay stamps from the 2011 Vintage Chic collection, all those gorgeous art deco(ish) stamps to work with was such a pleasure!

This stamp is Marguerite taking Ruben for a walk and the papers are from a Prima pad (could it be Jack and Jill?)  The border punch is a Martha Stewart deep edger punch, the flowers are punched from the small and medium EK Success retro flower punches.  The lace was from my stash and the seam binding, pearls and button  are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

It's also  Teddy Bo Tuesday which means more adorable releases - and there is a new character that has joined TB Towers!!

Have a fab day, I do hope it’s not as humid as it was yesterday – my poor doggies did not know where to put themselves with the heat.  They were so hot they didn’t even run away from the hose pipe, they were lining up for a cool off lol.

  10. I can't see Vince ever queuing up for a hosepipe, unless it squirted biscuits at him, lol! Gorgeous card hun, I can spot your creations from a mile away now and grabbed a mag yesterday because I saw "a Bev" on the front. Love this stamp, she is terribly chic, and I so admire how you have done the shabby look - mine just look knackered! Have a cooler day sweetie. Hugs Sxx
