Tiny's Swans Marianne Design

Happy Sunday crafting friends , hope your having a good one , I'm feeling a little better than I was , bad tummy pains .
 I've really enjoyed making this card , and I think it's a bit special , and the person I have in mind to send to is rather special too.
The background paer is a 12x12 glitter velum by docraft called Spring Floral . I ordered about 20 sheets a good while ago , and have used it many times for wedding cards.
I've used mainly Marianne design products , image Swans 2 , Tiny's Swans die , Petra's bridge , Bullrushes (or cattails as the Dutch call them ), Petra's waterlilly.
The other dies are tattered lace mini dies . The sentiment is craftwork cards.
I was given the runaround with the signets , they kept disappearing in my mess craft room. Now one is getting a ride on Mum's back and the other is hiding behind the waterlilly.

Tonic Kensington Handbag


Good morning crafting friends , hasn't it been such a lovely week weather wise , in the UK ,long may it last . I for one have been enjoying the garden and eating healthy meals with a bit of crafting mixed in .  I saw this die on create and craft and thought I must have it . I saw lots of gorgeous bags on the web and some in lovely acetate boxes . I only had A4 acetate , so this is my version with a card back to match the bag . To be honest the box is harder to make than the bag . I'm going to order some A3 acetate form the web and get handbag and box making , I think if I sold these they might be popular , what do you think ?

products used :Tonic Kensington Handbag Die , pink card and stripped card , pearl strings form my
                         local craft shop Crabapple Crafts.

challenges entered : Allsorts : in the pink
                                Die Cutting Diva's : anything goes with a diecut

have a great weekend and happy crafting Jane x
