Sassy Lady

I found these die cut images by Kanban lurking in a drawer - they look very like Loralie fabric ladies, so I couldn't resist them, although I don't normally use pre-printed die cuts. I liked these. The background cardstock is a gorgeous starlight card with a pearly glitter from Craftwork Cards, as is the white scallop square, and the tab, that I folded back and pinned with a flower. I added another cutout flower to her dress with a foam pad, and the border punch is by Martha Stewart


We have had a lovely weekend in Yorkshire, spending time with old friends, lots of good food, wine, and even more laughter. We all have busy schedules, so we got our diaries out, and have fixed up our next two weekends for this year, and were all impressed with our own efficiency.
Are any of you planning on going to the Craft and Stitch show at Olympia (London) this week? If so, I will be helping with the make and takes on the Papercraft Inspirations magazine stand, and would love it if you came up for a chat - don't forget to bring along a cupcake card along, to be in with a chance of winning a bumper prize. I have never done anything like this before, so I need all the support I can get. We will be taking the opportunity to see our family down there, before we head back to the USA, so I am on grandma duty as well this week, it's going to be just a bit busy.
See you tomorrow.....

Very nice card, Enfys. I like the embellishments on the diecut. I don't know if you added them or if it came with them. I really like your added flower element, as well. Enjoy those grandbablies and thanks for sharing.

Very sassy card, what a great image;) Your friends sound like mine. I have two friends I went to school with and we try to keep in touch and meet up about 4 times a year. Boy does it take some doing. if we were men we could probably meet every week lol.
