OK this has been received now so I can show you all what I've been working on - it took me quite a while to complete, but I think it's worth it when you see the end result!
Di and she loves pink - so I couldn't make it any other colour really! I'd been looking for a lovely corner die cut and thought I'd found it - only to find when I got it home that it doesn't truly cut a corner die, it just cuts the corner of the paper, however with some fiddling around, and a small pair of scissors, and lots of cramp later, I managed to get them to look like corners. I coloured them with Promarkers to match the colour of the backing papers and then added some Stickles all over including the borders (again, these came from Di, but I coloured them with Promarkers and added more Stickles!).
Here's the side view, which as you can see looks like a book - all nicely distressed with my first ever Distress Ink Pad! I've also used some girly pink ribbon and instead of cutting the ends I tied them in a small knot. Different....I don't like to follow the same as everyone else as those of you who know me, will know!
A little ticket sentiment was added, it says it all to you Di! You are so special and an angel on earth to so many people! Your wings have already been earned.
Anyway I hope you all like it, and watch out for more interesting things to come! (In between hospital visits of which there are many at the moment!).
