With Love

I had some fun the other night trying out a new Couture Creations die I picked up half price at my local Warehouse store... I used some PP that had golden stars and dots.  The die is called Christmas Lace... but is ideal for anytime.

I added some orange ribbon through the top of the lace.  Added some embossed and water coloured roses (a Kaisercraft stamp) and a white embossed sentiment from Winnie & Walter.

I also this week got some stamps that Suzanne from QuietFire Designs has given the designers on Die Cut Divas to work with for February.  She kindly provided us three sets

I also ordered three more as I really love quotes and sentiments.  So look out for my samples coming up next month at Die Cut Divas...  If you haven't seen her stamps and cut files... I highly recommend you visit the website here

I've had a busy week, celebrating our 37th Wedding Anniversary on We dnesday - dinner out with friends.. and a busy week at work.  This is a long holiday weekend and we drove down to Hamilton (just over 1 1/2 Hrs south) to spend the night with hubby's brother and wife and to see our new great nephew...Lachlan - a tiny little dot of a baby.  He was born 7 weeks early and now at 8 weeks old, he is just over 6lbs.

Got friends arriving shortly for dinner... so no more time to craft till tomorrow,

Thanks for visiting.

Sounds like a busy weekend Dawn, but how special to meet Lachlan. Those sentiments look amazing - I love Quiet Fire, but never quite get around to ordering...
Love your card - the white on the charcoal makes for a stunning sentiment.

Happy, happy anniversary, Dawn! Sounds like you've had fun celebrating! I adore that border die & how you used the ribbon with it--wonderful card! I love quotes, too, so will have to check out that company--although I'm on a spending freeze--LOL!
