A lazy Sunday

Windy, cold and wet in Manchester today, I was up a few times in the night with Mum, she was dreaming and kept shouting and then going into a deep sleep and snoring lol........I can't get her out of bed now, says she is tired! (she is 96) seems I can't win hehehehhe.... so I am feeling a bit lethargic today. Yesterday I sewed some tape onto a set of curtains for him indoors,for his van. While the machine was out, I used it on my card as well. I have a few birthdays coming up. The heat embossing glitters with gold/bronze/soft greens but I can't seem to get it to photograph very well, it looks a little green as well, but is cream lol

Paper from stash, had it ages
Cream card I stamped with swirls and heat embossed with enchanted gold powder
Tilda is coloured with distress inks
Glittered her wings
flowers coloured with promarkers and stickles
MS punch then vintage photo distress inked
Ribbon, hearts and card candy from stash
Sentiment free clear stamp from a mag.

I am entering this into the following challenges;

Just Magnolia ------- Mina's sketch

Colour Create ------- Chocolate/Cream/red

Cute Card Thursday ------ Hearts and Flowers

Sew Many Challenge ------ Valentines

Paper Sundaes --------- choose 2 or more toppings,Flowers/Lace/ distressing/pink
