Emma Walkies

A non-Christmas card from me again today, and another I made a while back.  I spent yesterday fighting with Ikea as stuff we had paid for and went to collect was “over-sold”.  Me no happy!!  So now we are stuck with cupboards with no doors till they arrive back in stock and I need to keep on chasing to find out when they are going to arrive.  Sooo needless to say my gander was well and truly up and I was in no mood for crafting last night!  Instead I cabbaged out in front of the telly and watched X-Factor.  Gosh I can’t remember when last I sat downstairs in the lounge all evening and didn’t even look at my emails let alone touch a stamp!   I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will be doing that a lot more I think.  Tony kept on looking at me and in the end said “have you found a twin sister or is that a poster of you sat there lol.  The cheek!

So, on to my card which features Emma Walkies and Set 9 Mixed Circular Sentiments from Lili of the Valley.  The papers are Echo Park Springtime, the dragonfly is a Doo Hickey die an the pearls and pearl brads are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The gorge die cut border is a MFT Die-Namics border die from Dies to Die For.

And now I am going to hide in my craft room for the rest of the day and get a magazine commission finished (something I had planned to do yesterday oops!)

Have a fabby Sunday

  1. Oh Bev, this is so beautiful! I love the yellow and pink together, and your colouring is gorgeous! Hope you get things sorted with the cabinet doors. Too funny about the poster... lol... I can see my hubby saying something like that if I sat and watched tv with him, too :) Unless my marker bin was on my lap :)

  30. Hi Bev
    WOW what a pretty card love it.
    Reading your comments (regarding Ikea), I purchased a humongous piece of furniture from there for my new craft room (in their sale), & because I have been waiting sooooooooooooooo long for my hubby to finish my craft room, I am terrified when we do open it up & go to put it together, that there are going to be pieces missing. Hope you don't have to wait too long for your doors. And the comment about your Hubby & the poster made me laugh, when on the rare occasion I do sit down to watch T.V., my Hubby sarcastically says to me, it's so lovely to have your company I almost forget what you look like lol.
    hugs

  31. She's just beuatiful!! LOVE the colors together!! You are a master of LOTV's!!!! And everything else you touch!! LOL!!
    Too bad about the cupboard doors.. I would be livid, too! Would they deliver them to you when they come since you've already paid for them? What a pain!!! At least you got to enjoy some tv time! LOL!!
    Hugs,
    Teri

  32. We had to wait for cupboard door for two months before Ikea re-stocked them! So I know what you might be thinking now ;-))
    The card is so fresh and sweet with this colour combo, and the image is adorable :-)

  33. Vegging out in front of the TV is OK once in a while but not to be recommended on a long term basis as I found out recently when I was ill and could do nothing else. I hope you get your IKEA problem sorted soon.

    Sorry about your furniture problems; in the end I guess it turned out to be a good reason to take some time off from stamping and just relax in front of the TV:)That's great!
