Life happens, Love helps.

Here is a card I`ve made for some good friends of mine who have an Anniversary coming up, they`ve been through some trying times lately (hence the sentiment on the card) but are still going strong and very much in love.

I`ve used one of my favourite LOTV images, coloured with distress inks and markers and done a bit of distressing round the edges of the papers here and there. I`ve cut the image out and cut off the swing ropes and replaced them with bakers twine so they swing in the aperture.

The papers are from MME lost and found 6"x 6" pad, flowers are a mixture of WOC and hobby house, vintage lace and seam binding and loopy ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl.

The sentiment is SU from the Vintage Vogue set, the little crochet flower is from Sir Stampalot and the flower brad is from an old Do Craft Victoria and Albert set, charms are from hobby house.

I just realized looking back at the pictures that I have a little pearl missing from the top left of the ring round the card, better replace that before I give the card to my friends. It`s probable stuck on to me somewhere, no doubt I`ll come accross it later LOL! these things get everywhere, I was walking about the house the other day thinking my foot hurts underneath and when I looked there was a large flat backed pearl stuck to me! God knows were that one came from ! LOL! it`s either pearls or foam pads that get stuck to me somewhere !
Anyway, on that note I`ll sign off. Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xxx


  1. Gorgeous as always Sara. Great shape and the papers are so pretty. I have started to add a bit of glue to my pearls. Got fed up with them falling off after they had dried out.
