All We Need is Love

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I have been away for a while there has been so much to do. We had a lovely Christmas and I hope you did too. Our daughter was with us for Christmas Day and her boyfriend joined us on Boxing Day. If all goes to plan they will be in their own house next Christmas. I think it is going to be a very exciting year. Of course I will let you all know what happens.

I was going through some of my old files and I came across this card that I hadn't shared. I had submitted it to go into the Tattered Lace Compendium but it didn't get included. One of my other projects was included but I didn't get a credit but I did get an apology.


To create the background I used the Bargello technique using two types of paper. I created a frame with with  a square die. 


I used the Tattered Lace Delicate Love Sentiment die  which I cut  twice so I could create a drop shadow and then I mounted it on some cut ovals the smallest of these I embossed. 


I am not sure when I will blog again. I have some deadlines for Tattered Lace over the next few days. It is a good job my husband needs to rest a lot to help his wrist mend. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
