Just arrived on white

Hi again – I’m here with my second post today.

I love making baby cards and the idea of a white on white one was really appealing.   I used the LOTV image – Just Arrived – and die cut around it with 2 of my new Majestic Squares dies.   I really wanted to put a colour under the inner die – but I’ll try that next time I use it.   I embossed the main background with a quilt effect embossing folder and added a Precious Stars die cut, which I glittered with Stickles Frosted Lace.   I stamped the sentiment and the small sentiment tags with grey ink and embossed them with clear       embossing powder and I dotted the stars on the circular one with liquid pearls.   The small “flowers” on the ribbon are cut from the Frosty Border from Memory Box as I wanted something not too girly.

We have been having real problems – with our Internet dropping off, since May last year. Our Internet provider has sent us 5 new modems – none of which have helped at all.   Last Friday a man from France Telecom turned up – before 8.00am – and promised to monitor things that day.   It was a particularly bad day for our Internet, which can drop off around 8 times while I am trying to link a card to several challenges.

Tomorrow someone is coming from our Internet provider, and also a person from France Telecom – to see what they can do.   Will we finally get a result???   We do hope so –      nothing happens fast in France – but surely after 9 months it can be resolved.   We live in hope!!


What I used –

LOTV image – Just Arrived – coloured with Promarkers    Sentiments also from LOTV

Creative Expressions Embossing folder – Great Chain Wire

Dies – Spellbinders Majestic Squares     Precious Stars from Memory Box
