For Someone Special

Nearly Friday thank goodness.  And I may even have a Just Magnolia card done this week too, the first in over a month!!  I just don’t know where the time goes, I can’t believe we’re half way through November already!  I so need to get my Xmas presents in, I have made a start but still have a fair way to go.

Anyhow, on to my card today which is for this week’s Lili of the Valley challenge, and this week the challenge is to make a Christmas card for someone special.

The stamp is Lili of the Valleys Pretty Poinsettia, the sentiment is from the Circular Christmas Sentiments set.  The papers are Forever Friend pad (I think, I always get this pad wrong lol).  The lush green satin ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the cotton lace, poinsettias, pearl brads, pearls and gold German Glass Glitter that I applied to the edges of the poinsettias.  Love that stuff!

This card was made for Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine quite a while back so I had to make a matching tag for one of the cards, and this was the one I chose.

  28. Hi Bev~

    First of all, I love the layout you used on this card. The papers are wonderful, as are all of the embellishments! I love the way you colored your image. She looks great...I love the shimmery look.

    The tag is wonderful, too. It is obvious this is for someone special! Challenge completed! lol
    I like the size and shape of this tag...verses the longer rectangular tag.

    He IS Able!

  40. Super card and tag. Great image and it really pops! A spooky thing happened when I was checking out your recent blog entries. Just as I read your title for this post, Wham (well George Michael, really!) sang "someone special" from Last Christmas! It couldn't have been more in sync if I'd planned it!

    Keep up the great work.
