International Ambassadors Laced with Love blog hop



 
Hello everyone!

The international Ambassadors are blog hopping again!
We had so much fun with our last hop featuring the Victorian dies we thought we would like to inspire you all again!
This is a fun and great way for you to get to know us and see our different styles.

If you came here from Linda Lucas her blog, you are in the right place.
We have chosen to use the dies from the Laced with Love collection / we thought these work beautifully to coincide with Valentine´s weekend.
It is so much fun to create with them, as you will see as you stop by each Designer´s blog.

For my card I used the S5-227 Floral Affair.
This is such a beautifully detailed set of templates that I'm sure it's going to be one of my all time favorites!
 

 
Now I normally do not share so much about my personal life on the internet, but today I'm making a little exeption for today it's Valentine's Day, the day we openly celebrate love.
In my opinion there can never be too much love.
A Valentine's love can be a secret love, a new love, a close friendship or....

For me it's celebrating being blessed to be sharing my life with the love of my life
His name is Harrie and we started out as best friends over 13 years ago.
I really could not imagine life (and don't want  to!) without him in it.
I hope you can all say the same, but I do have the sweetest man of the whole world in my life! He shares my best and my worst moments with me, being both my love and my best friend... honey, I love you!
Now I am lucky to have two wonderful men in my life...
The other one is my dad...he is the sweetest, Always supporting, advising, reliable, most loving and best dad I could have ever wished for. Thanks dad...some day I hope to be like you...you're the best!
The card I made with both these wonderful men in thought....


For my card I used:

Spellbinders®:
  • S5-227 Floral Affair: used die #3 (with #1 being the smallest die-template) (for silver frame)
  • S4-110: Classic Ovals Lg: #4 (for brown sub-frame)
  • S4-112 Classic Ovals Small: used die #5 (for pink frame)
  • S6-002 Matting Basics B: used die #7 (for pink frame)
And furthermore:


Next stop is Christine Emberson.
The list of International Ambassadors is below, in case you get lost along the way ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by - we hope you enjoy your time with us - we will be back with more!
As Always I am looking forward to your comments!
Hugs,
Yvonne

  4. A very very beautiful card here Yvonne, and the sentiment is just sooo perfect for it. I can only agree to everything you said about the men in your life too. I have one of this kind myself too, and next year we can celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and we´ve known each other since I was 12 and he was 14, so it goes quite a while back and he´s still the love of my life, that´s for sure.

Thank you for sharing your work. X Ros

    1. Thanks! Metal colored cardstock is great for die-cutting and especially for frames....I also often use it for Christmas cards.

  10. Hello Yvonne
    I must admit I had to look twice too. It did look like the die on the card! It is a beautiful die and the card you have used gives such a realistic metal look. Brilliant.
    Thank you for sharing a lovely card.
