The Getaway - DT My Crafty Heart

Hello!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Today I want to show you a DT Card that I have made for My Crafty Heart. I've used one of the new Gorjuss Girl images that are now in store at MCH called 'The Getaway' - isn't she adorable!


I've had this card idea floating around my head for weeks. So it was really nice to finally put it all together. I've used My Mind's Eye paper pad called "Honey Cake" also available at MCH. I love this pad SO much!! I'm just glad that I  finally managed to break into these lush papers!! LOL

The beautiful Prima Rose Trim is a neutral colour and goes beautifully with the peachy tones! I've added one of my favourite MCH vintage clock charms and some of the fab Hero Arts Gemstones on the image corners. All these are available from My Crafty Heart if you click on the links!

The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and I've added the ribbon from stash. The gorgeous border is Nellie Snellen and I chose it as part of my prize from Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago.


I've coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics.

I think that's everything? I am not feeling too good at the moment. I have had to start on some new Blood Pressure tablets and amongst other things they are really messing with my brain!! my memory is really bad. I keep doing the daftest things - going to the fridge for a new toilet roll !!!!!!?????? so if any of my commenting is nutty or doesn't make sense then you know why LOL. I am trying to take things easy and see if I can get used to these tablets as I really need to take them.

Oh Oops! see I knew I'd forgotten something! here is the inspiration photo for the Totally Papercrafts Challenge.

Hi Sue

A really lovely card.

Great image,layout and colour combo.

Those roses are stunning aren't they?

Sorry to hear you are not feeling too good. Hopefully you get used to the new tablets quickly .. .. and they stop messing with your head!!! Life is confusing enough without tablets adding to it!!

Have a good Sunday.
