Hello All...........

What a grey, wet, dull day again to start the year.........mustn't grumble, there are lots of people flooded or affected by the high winds.........I decided to use what little daylight there was to do a little sewing, It is from a blog I came across just  before Christmas and I am just loving the fab quilt with all the bright colours........
BUT.... here is a card from draft which I found a nightmare to make!
 I was asked to make it for a neighbours Son who got married in the red mountains in Las Vegas, she wanted a 1st anniversary card.........all she gave me to go on was mountains.!.....I only knew of ELVIS and 'The Strip' lol.

Never having been, or a clue what they were, I turned to my friend Mr Google.......he helped me so much and even gave me a free download of said area........
SO.... matted on to rust coloured card, coloured image of said red mountains,  I found in my file (no name) this wedding picture and coloured with promarkers, cut with  labels 23. MS hearts punch, ribbon, card candy and stickles from stash Sentiment made on PC.

She was delighted with the end result ( even though I wasn't) said she will be back for more lol on no!!!!

Hi Tilly,

Lovely card, you did a great job and I am sure they will love it.

Yes massive floods down here on the levels, today has been heavy showers and blowing again, at least it's not snow, America can keep the snow, and perhaps they would like the rain back.
Have a good day
