Heart Easel Card

Hello My fellow bloggers.

I do hope you have finished with all your Christmas shopping & ready to enjoy it all x
I know I am.

What is this weather all about!!!!! It's madness ..... 

Today I have a card to show you that I made a while ago. I purchased the new Tonic Indulgence dies (well they have more out now), lol, from Create & Craft.
I just wanted to have a play with them, instead of putting them away & forgetting I had them.

I combined the Elegant oval (which should have been a circle) & Elegant vine square.
The square gave the shape of the card - oval inside.

Gorgeous card Sally, such an elegant design, the scroll work is so pretty and the flowers buds are the perfect finish! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you find some time to craft before you return to work. It's great getting back to some kind of normality isn't it?

Thanks for the visit - ref robbed us of a penalty - but then again ref missed a few things for both sides! We didn't deserve to win tho' anyway... squad ain't strong enough to compete - top 6 for us I think (as long as the blue side of Merseyside don't finish above us!!!!)
These tonic dies are nice - must now go and check them out!
Happy New Year!

Good morning Sally, thank you so much for popping in and leaving a lovely comment on my card :o)
Stephen isn't my hubby (had two of those and two divorces). He is my son and he was struck down by a massive stroke in August, so the tax rebate was a ray of sunshine for him.
