The tortoise and the Hare



Good morning Peeps, I scheduled this one before we went away to hopefully it will pop up on the right day to tie in with the Tattered Lace Pick of the Week launching on Create and Craft on 7th August.

The top card uses TL large hearts, TL essential hearts, TL all over flourish embossing folder, TL clematis and ribbon strip from the TL essential book die set.


This is TL Mary, isn't she gorgeous, I found myself making quite a few with her. The sentiment is computer generated and I added some blossoms at the top using TL cherry blossoms and TL rose bunch embossing folder for the background.


Here we have the new TL tortoise, my mind went immediately to the tortoise and hare nursery rhyme, so I printed the rhyme for the backgound, stamped a hare........actually it's a rabbit but with a bit of artistic licence for the purpose of my card I think those big ears could make it a hare and added the tortoise who you can see is just ahead in the race.


And this is the new TL penguin, he's a real cute fellow. I used the TL holly embossing folder for the background and the TL Christmas lights across the bottom panel of the TL side stepper card. And finally a bow using the pretty silver TL glitter ribbon.

As always my appreciation for your visit.

The second one card with Mary and her garden is gorgous! But I'm in love with the first one, this easel heart card is really adorable!! So sweet and romantic!

Ahhh B. When saw Mary, I just had to comment.... How absolutely gorgeous is that card you've made. Don't have any TL dies but think they are lovley, seem to be dear down here in Oz.
Well read back on your last few posts since last here.. Have been to Drs in Sydney since then myself but all going well thankfully.
Am glad it looks like that your meds are under control with infections and your needed break away has come to pass.
I pray for a return to better health.. And more stability there with no or minimal infections. And visits are obviously not obligatory when you are unwell, we can only do what we can do...

God richly bless you dear B. Sending bloggy hugs and much prayer,
Shaz in Oz.x
