Two gorgeous girls

I heard today that my laptop is still being repaired and it is likely to be at least another week before I get it back. They offered me a choice of waiting, a refund or another laptop but I really want mine back. It takes so long to set up a new one loading programmes etc so I'll just have to be patient. The internet seems painfully slow tonight, supposed to be faster since they upgraded it, havne't noticed any improvement yet, and oh I do miss Photoshop for enhancing my pics.

Right enough moaning, onto my cards. I think you may see this little beauty a lot before Christmas gets here. She is LOTV of course. Papers are Papermania Heather with a scrap of Christmas paper. I added some silver ribbon and lace and made a lace bow to go with the Wild Orchid flowers. I took the stamens out of the cherry blossom and added a silver snowflake. More Cuttlebug silver snowflakes on the lace and silver punched fern leaves. The sentiment has been coloured with a Promarker, as has the image, and glitter.

The second card is a SN image I haven't used for ages. I cut her out and mounted her on a Nellie cut circle. Papers are BG Euphoria and sheet from an old Dovecraft girly pack. I added some blue and purple flowers, Prima rose leaves, spacer and brad and some card candy.

Adorable sweet cards Marianne especially love the LOTV one.

Lynda said...

They're both totally beautiful - the images are both gorgeous and I love the colours on both cards. I never really seem to use purples and when I see cards like this it makes me wonder why?

Love Lynda xxx
