Geisha Girl


Whew here I am much later than usual with my card today. I didn't get a chance to schedule my post yesterday and have been out all day today. The day started out with a mammogram. A rather uncomfortable,  painful but very necessary X ray to check for breast cancer. At least it doesn't last long and I won't have to go again for another 3 years. The day got better though with a trip into Norwich with hubby for browsing and shopping and lunch in Bella Italia. We even managed to get some Christmas shopping done.

I was so lucky to win the £25 voucher from the Lili of the Valley Inspirations blog last month and bought some stamps, which I haven;t had time to ink up yet unfortunately. I also bought 4 sheets of the new mini masterpieces as these die cuts are so useful for making quicker cards, I am doing a craft fair on Friday and really need to get some more stock made. Isn't this image so beautiful. I have used some Raspberry Road papers which were free with a mag. The gorgeous velvet ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. I have used various Memory Box dies with kraft card, Lucy Cromwell sentiment, X cut punched flowers, MS border and corner punches and pearl sprays from Wild Orchid.

gorgeous card Marianne - another stamp I have sitting waiting for ink - won't be too long now - I'm conscious that I won the last stamp you gave away and I still have to use it so I'm refraining from putting my name on your candy - gorgeous though it is!!! Big Hugs rachel xx
