Lots of Love

Hi feels like ages since I have sat at my craft desk. We had Australia Day celebrations last Saturday where friends and family came over for an Aussie sausage sizzle with games and swimming. Then on Sunday where I had plans to do a bit of stamping that never happened as we lost power for nearly 4 hours smack bang in the hottest part of the day!! No fans or air conditioning on one of our hottest summer days just made it too unbearable to be inside, so we spent most of the time in the swimming pool. Then even though we had a public holiday on Monday I still didn't get any free time as I had housework and ironing to do before school started back for 2013 the next day and I was back to work and on top of all that we lost our phone lines & internet for about 36 hours due to all the flooding that has been happening which meant I couldn't get on and surf my favourite challenge sites. But....I am not really complaining (even though it sounds like I am lol) because if you have seen the news lately you would have seen all the flooding that has been and is still happening along the coast of Queensland where many houses have been destroyed. We received a lot of the same rain but as we are higher up the coast of Queensland we didn't get as much because as the low moved down the coast it intensified. Our thoughts are with our fellow Aussies...stay safe!
So anyway....back to my card....I have made this card using the latest sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and the colour combo is the latest challenge at The Play Date Cafe. I have made the background for the panel with my Mustard Seed & Peeled Paint Distress Inks then stamped some flourishes and finished it off with a spray of Perfect Pearls mist. Thanks for stopping by...

  1. So pretty that the embossing on the white ties in so nicely with the pattern on the panel! Thanks so much for playing along with this week's CAS(E) This Sketch!

  2. We're both liking this colour combo Vikki - your distressed ink panel is gorgeous (I know it looks heaps nicer in true life) and the tiny pearls and flowers tie it all together - lovely

  3. Gorgeous Vikki! Love your use of pattern and texture!
    Glad to hear everything is ok, we were lucky too. Lots of strong winds, rain & local flooding but we didn't lose power (some houses did for over 3 days...)
    Thanks so much for sharing at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!

  4. Beautiful embossed panel. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown for this challenge.

  7. Vikki, hope your weather improves! It is winter here and we're having snowstorm after snowstorm. You have created a beautiful card, the image is so elegant! The embossed background creates some beautiful texture, too. So glad you could join us for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge!
