1950's


This is one of the recent decades simply print images from LOTV and is one of a set of cards I made for Making Cards magazine. This is Capri Pants and she is teamed with MFT Free Spirit papers. I love these papers and have used so much of them I had to buy another. The sentiment is LOTV teenage girls digis and I used my Fiskars tag punch, pearl pen and added some doodling.

We are mainly at home this weekend. We want to do some gardening, some crafting, popping out for a bit of retail therapy to Hobbycraft, food shopping and a 2 4 1 breakfast at Bella Italia. We also have a new hobby, doing jigsaws, something I never thought would interest us but having started one at a friend's house we are now hooked. We pUt some music on, usually vinyl, and really enjoy working on a jigsaw together.We started one the other day, only 500 pieces and we want to finish it. We have bought a couple of new ones and some from charity shops, 500 or 1000 pieces. Enjoy your weekend whatever you are doing.

Love the card Marianne, beautiful image and papers. Jigsaws are a favourite for the winter months especially winter themed ones, my local charity shop has someone check them and guarantee all the pieces are there.

A lovely card Marianne. I really like the sassy lady in this image and what I wouldn't give to have a waistline like hers. Xx

A super card Marianne, you papers co-ordinate beautifully with the image.
My Mum loves doing Jigsaws, she has loads of scenic ones - we quite often buy them in Smiths, they always have them on offer.

I have this digi image printed and waiting to be coloured. I really need to do some colouring.
The pre-coloured images are lovely and I love the card you have made.
