GIFT FOR SUE...

Hello my Lovelies, I have a lot to catch up to share what I have in my draft, been at my desk doing lots of stuff, behind in my visiting, I'm visiting when I take a short break, I'll be around to visit everyone by the end of the weekend, we all seem to be busy so I'm sure you can relate.
This is the love I sent to Miss Sue of Card Therapy, she lives in warm and sunny Florida so I thought I would send her some love from a Canadian Magpie......

I showed this on WOYWW, I used the whole gorgeous set my Magpie Cuz In England, I loooooved using the whole set...


These are the papers for each side before I covered the the beer mats. creating a triptych, you know I love them..




For this side I used the I am Canadian symbol on the beer mat, cover the rest with a gelli plate page, pink is Sue's favorite color,
I stamped it with mowed lawn for my forite vine stamp, the script is from the set, I stamped a bird stamp I have, tried to make him look like a magpie, some white strokes on the tip of his wings, the swirl is because well, I'm  fancy kinda Magpie :O)...
I wasn't sure how to attach them, then, not thinking, crazy me :), I cropadialed all four corners instead of the 6 in the middle, I ended up threading some pink ladder wool, fancy wool I love to use it on all sorts of things..





I looooove this side, I inled up some water color paper with  Tim's, worn lipstick, shabby shutters, vintage rose, dropped some sepia ecoline ink, water splashes. I used lots of those gorgeous stamps on all three pieces, added sequin waste with my big white pen, edged i with walnut ink, added a couple of dangly bits of the ladder wool..





I added a tiny tag to hang on it, for my friend, and my created by on the back side... Sorry another chatty photo heavy post..


Thanks so much for stopping by my nest so I can share this gift I made with loooooots of love, Miss Sue is always making all sorts of love to send out, I thought she deserved some back..
I'll see you soon,  ((( BIG HUGS )))...

                                            NAMASTE!!!

I just know that Sue will love this Dianne! I am so glad that you've been able to get lots of pleasure from those stamps! Ooh, that ladder wool is gorgeous. You sent me some last year and I treasure it: I used it on a card only the other day and I always think of my Magpie Cousin when I do. I adore your triptychs and this one is so special and made with love. Have a great weekend, full of joy. Julie Ann xxxx
