"Another Fabulous Fashion"

Hello and welcome, I hope you have all been experiencing this fantastic weather.
As much as love the heat of the sun today was rather too hot for me again.   I retreated inside to the cool of the house. 
John, Audrey and the boys flew out of San Fransisco midnight Monday.  Arrived Philadelphia 9.30am their time today (Tuesday)   The boys had slept the whole of the flight so they were off to explore Philadelphia for the day.  They leave for home later this evening, arrive in Glasgow approx 7am tomorrow (Wednesday)  They will stop off here on the way home to their house.   They pass the road leading down to our village on the way to theirs, bacon rolls by the dozen will be the order of the day about 10.30am
I really could not be bothered to craft today,  however I did find bits that were needing to be used.  I had printed off some of the decoupage, from the Fabulous Fashion CD.  Used a few, this one was left so decided to get it used up and out of the box.   They did say the shapes were compatible with Spellbinder Nesties but I did not have an oval to fit this.

Base card an 8x8 white card
Dark Teal card
Backing paper printed from the CD 
The Oval image is decoupaged, attached to some Teal card and cut it out by hand
I added some glitter here and there, some Glossy Accents to the stand
Computer generated greeting added to a matt made up of matching card and paper
Piece of ribbon from my Bits of Ribbon Box
I tried to do some piercing which did not work very well.  Did a bit of camouflage work in an effort to make it look better.  However I don`t think that has worked either.  Although not a great  card I thought I would show it because I have nothing else at the moment.  Better get a move on and try make some thing.

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really do appreciate you doing that and all the lovely comments you leave.
Till next time
