Ellie wanted music on,put you-tube on so she could flick about AND she discovered Elvis Presley so she keeps having it on when she can she said he is a lovely singer-then asked if he was dead??? her favourite is "You were always on my mind"played it six times in a row (her Dad said 15 lol)my favourite is "Love me Tender"saw the picture loads.My card today is as always a last minute for Mos Digital Pencil-image here.the papers and bow are Portobello Road,the paper flower I have had forever.
Well it was so cold yesterday I even considered putting the heating on.The new challenge at TWISTED TUESDAYis "Sailing the Seven Seas"-a Nautical theme with a twist and the twist is to use at least 7 embellishments.I used a Nautical set of-gasp-stamped images,no longer in original packet.The small travel stamps with ship image and postcards are from a Travel set,so hoping these count towards the seven,then I used string liquid pearls,frantage,two dies and embossing pwd in gold.I didn't use any P.paper just used my crackle stamp on kraft card.The coloured card is from Papermill direct.

I wrapped the spiders web lacy stuff round top half of card,Romantic vintage paper by Marianne,glamour dust on paper and I double embossed the image "Heart Wreath with Birds" by Lindsay from Lej Designs.I posted the card to DT blog,then when I felt better looked at it again and thought nnnoooooooooooooo so I made another CAS card with embossed background and used the double embossed image with an embossed heart image in an aperture.
