Hi, There!

First card for 2018!!  This is a Stamping Bella image called Lulu Loves Poppies but I am not sure if it is still available as this is an older image.  I just had to color her up as I was craving something with flowers!!!

More snow coming our way and it was 7 degrees this morning!!!  BRRRRRR!

I have a new die from Precious Marieke/Rustic Nesting Frames and thought it framed Lulu nicely.  I used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink around the edges and cut a few more contrasting dies to use behind the image.  The image is popped up with foam tape.  

Using the papers from Tim Holtz Idea-ology, I formed the card base and I cut apart some postcards to make letters on the side.  Used a heart die from Verve for the surrounding hearts.

The button sentiment is a chipboard from BoBunny that I received as a freebie from  The ribbon is from my stash and I tried to make a wax seal at the bottom - not sure if that is what I succeeded in displaying;)  You know - sealed with a kiss - not that it is lips but just a seal!!! lol

I would like to think that Miss Lulu just received a bunch of Poppies with her love letters;) 

Thanks for stopping by and sending you much love, hugs, and blessings for the new year ~ CaroleAnn
