I have been desperate to make a card with this cute Lily of the Valley stamp, she is so quick to colour so I think it will be perfect for making a batch of simpler cards too!
The jewelled snowflake is Jolee's Jewels, crystallized Swarovski Elements I bought mine from Michael's, will someone lock those doors and keep me out of that store!  I always wished to be close to one but this one may be just a tad too convenient!
With my whopping big jewel I just had to enter the My time to craft challenge this week the theme is 'jewelled'!
Also perfect for me just now is Stampin for the weekend 'shabby or vintage' I am definitely in my vintage stage!  Errr, cardmaking style I mean!  

Here is my Custom Design Stamp from Whimsy Stamps designed by Ann Vento.  There are lots of different styles to choose from and the wording is completely up to you, take a look here!  
They really are perfectly customised to suit your needs! I love mine!  

I am back into fully furnishing the insides of my cards again, now coming out of my' lazy period' and launched  into my 'can't get enough on my card period!'  Please ignore the blob in the middle of the top note die cut, my glue went crazy and I couldn't wait for it to dry!

Just love this jewel!  Might have to give this card to one of my daughters as I may not be able to part with this jewel!  Well, anyway, it would make the card too heavy to mail, no really it would.....

Stamps - Lily of the Valley - coloured with distress inks, Prima clear stamp, Whimsy Custom Design stamp
DP - My Mind's Eye 'life stories'
Jolee's jewels - snowflake pendant
Tools - Stampin' Up 'ticket corner punch', 'bigz die top note'

I will be back on Monday, hope you all have a fabulous weekend, I for one am so happy it is here!

Aw Deb this is just "divine"! The image is adorable...your jewelled snowflake is're right...iw WOULD be too spensive to post!!lol

A few days ago I was gonna write that you are TORTURING me every time you mention Michaels...but took it off...didn't want to appear cheeky(as IF!!) but you're just as tortured by living too close!!! lol Thats hilarious...maybe the novelty will wear off Ah well just keep enjoying it then (and torturing me!! lol). But wait a minute you ever got to visit a Hobby Lobby yet..? O DEB...i used to LOVE Michaels but then i found HL and it was nothing compared!! OF course, i still NEED to make the obligatory stop at Michaels (I'm sure you understand!!). I often wonder what the "natives" think of their stores...I mean if they visited here they'd be in for a HUGE SHOCK!! Ok, nuff waffle from me...enjoy your weekend!! bx
