Baby It's Cold Outside!

Happy Tuesday Bloggers.
Seems ages since I've actually had a decent amount of time to craft, this card seemed to take forever,
I kept doing bits at a time, and I think I got a little bored of it, thats why, in my eyes, it's quite plain,
I've done faux stitches again, they seem to be appearing on all my cards at the minute - Sorry!!
I've used:
My new LOTV ~ Star of Wonder
Technique Tuesday ~ Sentiment
My Minds Eye ~ Christmas Paper
Tim Holtz ~ Distress Inks
Not very happy with the end result, but it'll do!
I'd like to enter the following challenges
LOTV ~ Four Seasons
Edited to say, my internet is still playing me up, still can't get on LOTV blog, had to upload via mobile - took me ages, sorry LOTV that first attempt was wrong!
Thanks for looking

Oh no don't say that Fleur, we are always critical of our own work, I was recently with my Anya lampost thingy.
This is gorgeous. I especially love the background papers and the little squares you have made with it...beautiful.
Your faux stitching is so like the real thing I cannot tell, and don't stop doing it it's lovely, and bang on trend!
I am dying for some LOTV stamp, especially the Christmas ones, going to Harrogalte show in September and hoping to get some then. Have you seen the girl in the big Russian hat skating (I think, and dog walking!!). Well it's gorgeous.
Well done you. Debbiexx

Hi Fleur
This is a lovely card! Fab distressed look and love the stitching too. Adore the image and you've coloured it wonderfully.

Debbie said...

HIya Fleur. How are you? You have been busy, all those faux stitches must have taken ages. Love the look tho. Very vintage looking. Fantastic image for Christmas. I've not even thought about making ay chrissy cards yet. I've been so busy lately, I've hardly had time to think.

Still, love the card, and I am still here, albeit very quiet at the mo. Pass my regards on to everyone.

Hugs Debbie xx

Hi Fleur

I don't know why you don't like it .. .. I think it is gorgeous.

Perhaps it is because it took you a while to make it - that does sometimes give the "kiss of death" to creations (but only for the maker .. .. not for "lookers on" or the recipient.

Great faux stitching.

Love Jules xx

Well I for one am not at all bored with faux stitching, in fact I thought it was real! I love this card and it is far from plain, I love that little image and your colouring as always is impeccable,

I love,love,love your work. I just sit and drool. I don't know how you pick your colors,My distressing doesn't look anything like yours.I'm scared to use paint cuz I know I'll just make a big mess.And I always wonder how you'll mail the suckers.Just keep doing what you're doing cuz It's OKAY by me.Haven't seen anything you've done that I've disliked!
