Good morning everyone its a wonderful winters morning the sun is out and shinning and the sky is blue without a cloud and its not raining for a change.

I have a little boy home from school today which is very unusual as I can't remember the last time he ever have a day off school. He has woken up this morning with a very high temperature and boiling hot and shaking with the cold at the same time. I know he's not well when he doesn't want to go to school, doesn't want to eat and puts himself back to bed. I think he's picked up the flu that I had a couple of weeks ago so hopefully he'll be on the mend soon I hate seeing them unwell.


This week we have another wonderful sketch from our very own talented designer Arlana Patten. Great sketch Arlana!!!

As soon as I got my image and looked at the sketch I knew exactly what I was doing and I was so happy how it all turned out.

I was trying to create a framed Wedding Photo with the hanger hopefully it looks like that LOL.

Kathie, this is a great sketch and I love what you've done with it, putting your lovely images into an oval frame like that - it's so adorable. The embossing effect is nice and love how you've added pearls to the brides' headpiece - very clever! I hope your son gets better, poor baby - it's awful when the little ones get sick, isn't it? Take care!

Oh kathie, I fell in love with the card the moment you posted on SBS. I couldn't wait to tell you how much I love your card! I love the gold frame around your image. You have colored them up perfectly. Your color combo is perfect too!
Hope your little guy gets feeling better soon!

JR Creations said...

Wow Kathie! It's amazing, great idea on the framing of the image. Love the whole effect of the card, it's so elegant and classic. Hope your little lad feels ok soon, my Ryan has tonsilitus at the moment, it's like looking at two golf balls in his neck. I'm sure they will have to come out sooner rather than later. Runs in the family.

Kathie, you hit the jack pot on this card! It is so elegant! I love the gold frame and the hanger. The embossing is beautiful along with the added pearls flower, lace and ribbon. It also looks like you have embossing on the cream background paper which really frames the whole card! It's just stunning! Beautiful coloring too!
