Roses for a lifetime

Claudia_Rosa_Pie_Tilda_1
Hello my friends, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas. Iam sure you all got spoiled very much from your family and friends. I am overwhelmed with the the generosity and kindness I have experienced from ALL of you.  All the wonderful gifts and food we were able to give to Brandon and his family and also the gifts I have received from my friends warmed my heart. I received a card from Brandon’s grandmother, thanking all of us. I always wanted to scan it and post it to the blog. I totally forgot. I may do this tomorrow to read for those of you who donated. Thanks again on this spot!

The card is inspired by all the lovely samples I see on the Scandinavian blogs. OMG.. I could get lost in hopping from one blog to an other. I wished I could paint with Distress inks so well. I choose for this card some lovely Maja papers and have Tilda sitting in a field of flowers. All edges have been distressed and inked with Walnut ink glued down, sewed and than I used my exacto knife to pull the papers on some places off the mat. It is hard to see but I also used on the red paper mat Magnolia’s heart shaped die and there is a really pretty white ribbon from the Ribbon Girls it has hearts along the edge. Very cute.
Dies: Magnolia – Dream Tag/Label Sentiment: Stempelglede
Ribbons/Hemp: The Ribbon Girl
Embellishments: Sweet Heart Roses, red polka dot buttons and gem swirls through the Ribbon girl
Papers: Maja Design
