Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Spellbinding card?

Good afternoon - yesterday many of you saw my desk at the beginning of this card - everything out, ready to go. So I wanted to share the finished card with you.

Inspired by Sue Wilson and her Spellbinders demo's I set to work attempting to have a go at her style, sort of! I used the neutral card Sue raves about and embossed the background with Sheena Douglas's Daisy folder. Then I used my limited Spellbinders collection to die cut the shapes for the card.  For the top one, I printed the sentiment first then cut it, then embossed it and finally I ran it back through to flatten the pattern a bit, why I don't know, it just seemed the thing to do!

Of course, you can't do a 'Sue' card without putting a bow on it, so I created a bow from the lace, which also had a daisy design on it, but it's hard to see on here. I added the hat pins and a small dragonfly charm.  Some gold card Candi finished off the small dies. 

Funnily enough, this card is for my friend, Sue, so the whole 'Sue Wilson' style seemed very apt, I shall tell my friend the inspiration behind her card afterwards.

Hope you like it. Take care Zo xx

Yay! This is brilliant Zo - see you on TV soon. And, might I add that you even managed to take some great photos too - notoriously difficult to achieve with neutrals. Go girl! Di xx
