To Have and to Hold .

Hello everyone .Hope that you are preparing for a wonderful weekend of family and friends creating lots of joyful  memory making moments .
Welcome to my room . Freezing outside , warm as toast in here .
Just going back over some workshop cards in my stash that I have not yet shared with you . Now I want to put some inserts in and send them on  to some shops that sell my cards .This first one is not actually the design first used in my group . I had a cancellation so had a complete kit spare .
I actually posted the original on Tuesday's post .Now I  have just changed things a little but did  use same ingredients .
Shared Tuesday night posting .

Just by standing the card tall and adding a sentiment in one of the panels there is almost a complete change .

The sentiment reads To Have and to Hold , from this day forward . This is from Stamp-It.
The next card is with doodling which I  love . This creates a border with a difference .

Floral Image is from  Penny Black. I used black journaling marker for doodling and filled in places with white gel pen . Leaves were filled in with green glitter pen . Sentiment is from Stamp-It.

                                                    Basic Black and Whisper White card.
                                                         Scallop border Punch
                                                      Image and sentiment from Happy Moments .
                                              Circle  punch used on 
                                                 Circle      from Circle Circus  SU
  Well this has been a bit of mashed potato kind of post . Hope you dont mind !
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
