Recovering from excesses?

Good morning all and I hope that I find you well and that you've had a good Christmas? We had a mix of busy days and quieter ones, just 5 of us here for Christmas dinner (although visitors on the day!) but then a bit of a family party yesterday for nearly a dozen!  Over the last few days we seem to have done a huge amount of eating, and I'm starting to feel as though I've been constantly preparing food, cooking or washing up! But I'm planning a quieter day today and determined to get some crafting done as I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms!  I'll let you know if I manage it!

But in the meantime I thought I'd share a card made for a young couple's wedding

I've used a LOTV stamp coloured with promarkers

and decorated the inside to match

Ingredients for this card:-
Stamp - LOTV 'Together Forever'
Promarkers & Pencils & Distress Ink 'spun sugar'
Spellbinders - oval and floral oval dies
Marianne - swirl die
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers, leaves & heart charm
Papers - coredinations card, LOTV Nitwit papers

Hope you like it! 
Back soon, Kim x

  1. Such a lovely card for a wedding day, love the papers you used on and the LOTV stamp!

  2. This is beautiful Kim, such a cute wedding card :) I know the feeling about feeling like I've been eating constantly - my sister's birthday is 3 days before Christmas so our festivities always start then and just keep going til the new year haha :D

    Do you mind me asking what Promarkers you used to colour the boy's hair?! I'm having a serious block when it comes to doing blonde hair lol.

    1. Hi Tanya, yes I always seem to struggle more with blonde hair - hence most of my characters are brunettes lol! I've used caramel, sandstone & buttercup promarkers for this one (if I remember right!) with some added detail using a light umber prismacolour pencil. I just keep playing and then I might get it right!
