A Midweek Reminder and a Proud Mama Moment

 Hi There
Im still here...I think!!..just Christmased out!!!!Hee hee..No Ive been up to my eyes in Christmas work behind the scenes recently..
 
Today to share is a verrryyyy late card for the Ribbon Girls Challenge to include numbers. (Sorry Im so late Mary :D)
Ive used a beautiful image from LOTV 'Skipping'. I wanted to give her more of an aged ,vintage look so I painted her with Distress Ink Walnut Stain..
.
For the shape of my card Ive used a Go Kreate die- Flower

 I feel to be struggling with my cards recently. Im going through a 'less is more' stage and not wanting to add anything much or overload it, but at the same time I want to use all the beautiful embellishments I have but cant. I also love all the amazing dies out there. The flowers here I have made using a Marianne Die.
 
All Ribbon and Lace is from the Ribbon Girls
Dies are DooHickeys by Magnolia
Papers-Magnolia
all available from Sir Stampalot
 
Before I go I want to share my proud Mama moment with you all.
He's my little star
(Well big!! all 6ft 4'' of him)
I pinched this picture from the local paper (He will kill me but hopefully he wont come here :D)
This was from his GCSE results...Now onto the A levels!!! EEkeeeek
 
Thanks so much for visiting me today
Hugs

Gorgeous card Debbie! And I know what you mean with less is more... It's probably while I'm alternating between simple and embellished all the time at the moment!

And those are *fantastic* results! You're right to be proud!

Hi, Debbie
I discovered your site via a link from Weekly Scrapper. Just had to let you know that I've seen a lot of handmade cards, but yours are some of the very best I've ever seen. You do such a great job layering. Keep up the great work :0)
Congratulations to you on your son's achievement. You must be so proud!
