First Cavendish Lady


What a week….yuk… don’t you just hate being sick. Still can’t get home to see my grandchildren until I have had my new meds….can’t have those until I get rid of this head cold…..

Must be improving though because I actually felt like making a card today….took all day…..but in the end this is what I came up with.

Bought some new Kanban stamps from QVC…The collection is called The Cavandish Ladies….six ladies in all and lots of sentiments. There are two sets…Day At The Races and Putting On The Ritz. This lovely lady is from the Day At The Races.

Made a tissue flower but this time I stamped and embossed onto the tissue with different sized flower stamps from Hero Arts. This made the flower quite sturdy looking and you wouldn’t realise it was tissue paper until you feel it. Papers from Pink Petticoat.

Getting used to my Pro Markers and enjoyed colouring her in.

    Beautiful card Shirl, you’ve coloured the image with your promarkers perfectly, you sure you are a novice at using them. Your tissue paper flower has worked really well, it’s stunning, I know you haven’t posted a card for a while, this one was worth waiting for.
