Make It Monday

Its been so good to have a nice long break this Easter - with the Easter weekend followed by our Royal Wedding today (did you watch?  wasn't it spectacular?  what did you think of The Dress?) there is no work until after the Bank Holiday.  Plenty of time to try my first Make it Monday - you can see Nicole Heady's video of how to do a line frame here.




I used some flowers made from the Beautiful Bloom dies, stamped with the Beautiful Blooms II and Sending You stamp sets in hibiscus burst, berry sorbet and sweet blush inks.  The leaf stamp and die are from Turning a New Leaf and the sentiment is from Think Big Favourites number 1.

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you are having a lovely long weekend!

Beautiful card, Chris! I love the way you stamped both Beautiful Blooms II and Sending You on the die cut flowers. I did watch your big wedding. Couldn't stay up all night, but I recorded the whole thing and watched off and on all morning. It was so much more interesting to me than Charles and Diana's wedding, since I've now been to the places and seen them in person. Westminster Abbey was on of my favorite places that we visited when we were there. And yes, the dress was fabulous.
