Flowering Baroque Heart, and the next James Bond?!

Hello to you all and hoping you are well and enjoying your day.  We have sunshine and some warmth and Alistair and Bill are off to walk in the Cairngorms, so he will come back whacked but happy. 
I've been getting on with clearing out my drawers,a task I've been putting off for ages, but I was given some beautiful drawer liners for Mother's day, so I thought I'd better use them.

Thank you all for visiting me and leaving those lovely comments. 
Now for my card;
Using another CB stamp, this one is  called Flowering Baroque Heart, it's beautiful and it's coloured with Starlights, first being embossed with Wow copper embossing powder.
I've used some of the free papers that Lesley from CB designs and embossed some card with a SB  musical score folder. Added a crocheted butterfly, inked with Colour Cloud,a wee bit of gold lace and some pearls.

I thought I would show you some of the other things my very own Action Man gets up to when he's let loose;

Ang...Mrs Duck calls him The Milk Tray  Man, me  well I think he's auditioning for the next James Bond  movie. Some of the places he and Bill get to are totally amazing. 

Off now to see Milo,I will be visiting your blogs later on, take care, 
Hugs Kate x🤗

Hi Kate
Smashing card. You can really pick up the super sparkly bits.
Not going to ask about your drawers lol!
As for Action Man, I hope you have him insured. He's very brave as wet rubber chafes lol,

The musical score embossing and musical paper make a lovely background for the heart and the butterfly Kate. Alistair is adventurous and daring these are great pictures

Hi Kate,
what a very beautiful pink card.
It looks so dreamy and lovely great sparkle also.
Super design as usual.
Oh my you do have your own action man as one can see.
Perhaps he should audition for the new Milk Tray adverts.
Still it keeps him happy as our crafting does us.
At least we don't need that much energy to craft.LOL.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Love your card Kate, not like you to do "pink" it's beautiful.
Wow! talk about "action man" he does not have a look in .... he'd never manage all those things.

Beautiful card Kate! I love all the pink and the glittery bits!! So I'm fairly new to your blog and just wondering if Action Man is your hubby or your son? Either way, I shall call him Crazy Man!! tee hee. hugs :)

Hi Kate

A lovely pink sparkly card .. .. and I found the heart! LOL!!

Love that crochet butterfly too!

Gosh your Action Man looks like he "could" be the next James Bond . .. with no stunt double necessary. I am guessing "fear" doesn't exist in his vocabulary!

Love Jules xx

It's a lovely card, Kate. The subtle music score looks so pretty with the heart, (and I don't know what Starlights are - new product?). I'm loving a lot of the Wow EP's, and what a perfect color combo to try the copper. The delicate crochet butterfly looks wonderful with the pretty heart too. Enjoyed the picture of Action Man. He must be very adventurous. I bet he has such fun! TFS & Hugs (oh yes, glad you had some happy sunshine too!)

Rainey's Craft Room said...

He's very adventurous isn't he? Looks like he had a great time judging by the photo's.
A very pretty pink card Kate with gorgeous embossing and sparkle.

Anne said...

Wow he is an action man isn't he!! I had to laugh at the Milk Tray man comment, only us over a certain age would know about him!
