My card today features one of Elisabeth Bell’s amazing images, this little cutie is Ginger Meadows from the Cottage Cuties Collection.  The sentiment is also from the new release, the set is Tickets Notes.

The papers are from the latest digi kit from Nitwit Collections, this one is Tour of London – isn’t it just fantastic!!!

I’ve used a few dies on this card, the Doo Hickey Picket Fence, Die-Namics Open Scallop Edge die, and for the leaves I used Poppystamps Die Ivy Tendrils that a gorgeous lady sent me as a surprise xxx

The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used 25mm wild roses, 20mm roses, 15mm roses and I used some gold coloured pearls for the centres of the larger flowers on the stamped image.  The ladybird in the centre of the lace bow is a button, I just snipped the shank off.  This was one of the many buttons I picked up on my shopping spree with Jacque, Suzan and Michelle when I was in the USA in January.

That’s it from me till later this evening when I post the winner of the WOC surprise candy plus the winner of the weekly LOTV candy (over on the Ideas to Inspire blog).  I am off to the Sincerely Yours show at Gateshead Stadium today, I can’t remember when last I went to a show just to take my time looking around and shop, so am taking two of my dearest friends with me for a girlie morning out Smile

  58. Hi Bev,
    Well this is too gorgeous and in one of my favourite colour schemes. I just adore red, white and blue and this is a wonderful example and so patriotic at the moment too with 2012 being the year to showcase UK! I am not much into sport but am thrilled for those who are but I am a royalist (I love the pomp and splendor of it all) it's what other countries adore about us too. Off on a tangent there sorry Bev. lol. Anyway, I hope you and hubby have a good week and I hope hubby is feeling much stronger now.
    Best wishes Linda x
