♥ Oh soooo Tweet!! ~ Daydream designs ♥

Well aren't these images from Daydream Designs just adorable :)  I had great fun working with them last night and decoupaged the nest and bird at front :)  couldn't resist adding some glitter .. LOL
Added some scrunched seam binding with a button for embellishing.
This set is coloured which I found very helpful and you can get them uncoloured too so you can have fun with your copics :)

Have a fab day

♥ Simon says stamp challenge ~ Back to school ♥

I made this little gift card to enter into Simon Says Stamp Challenge ~ Back to school :)
I cut an apple with my smallest apple nesties and a separate little leaf die cut from leaves collection.
Swiss dot folder was used on the apple, a little "bling" and bakers twine and the stamped sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.

Thanks for looking

♥ Daydream Designs team ~ My opening card ♥

It's the grand opening week of Daydream Designs Store :)  So be sure to pop over and get your discount code and freebies from Diane Noble's blog :)
This card features the digi jars, I resized mine, printed it onto kraft card and inked the edges with white ink.  The sentiment is a stamp from MFT and I tied pink and white bakers twine with a wooden clothes pin and felt heart and pink heart button to embellish.  Some stitched lace on decorative paper to finish.  I tried  loads to photgraph this today ... It is much nicer in real life as the jar is on 3d sticky pads.

EDITED TO ADD:  Got it sorted ..... Yaaay!!!! ;)

I have recently had someone trying to hack my blog :(  resulting in google temporarily removing my blog.  I got it sorted and now im gettting words double underlined in my blog posts and if you click on them they are pop up adds (don't click)  and even when im on ebay or anyother websites :(  It's frustrating!!!
Is anyone else experiencing these problems??  Can you all see the double underlined words appearing throughout my blog?
Any advise would be so helpful

Marlou :)
