♥ Card no.2 for Creative Paper trade challenge ♥

Hi .... :)  I couldn't resist making another card using Andrea Budjack's gorgeous digi products
The "thanks" image is free from Andrea's challenge blog, which im entering this my second card to her challenge.  The background gingham paper is from Andrea's digi checks paper collection, which I stitched.  I stitched a red square and layered the image twice adding a little pearl.  Some red gingham ruffled ribbon and a felt rose (Made by Andrea, which I got from her Etsy shop) and I added a little pearl to finish.

have a fab day

♥ The Creative Paper trade Challenge ♥

Hi :)  ... I finally get around to joining in with one of my favourite designers .. Andrea Budjack's new
challenge blog :)
I used Andrea's rustic heart digi papers .. stitched and layered them and cut out sentiment from framed squares.  Adding some stickles, pearls, cotton pink lace and a heart button tied with jute.
This card has been layered up a few times but I was so tired I couldn't get another photo shot of it.

Have a lovely evening

I have another Die-namics for sale on Ebay, jumbo Scallop border if anyone is interested, also a couple of Elzybells Christmas stamps.

♥ Things with Wings ~ Let's Craft and Create ♥

Hi everyone :)  I was delighted to feel a bit stronger today and managed to make this wee card this evening.  I used the digi owl papers and owl & sentiment set from Daydream Designs and just made a simple layout using nesties, some jute string and "bling"  (added bling in owls eyes) and I stitched on the gorgeous digi paper (if you look closely) :)
This is for our "Things with wings" challenge over at Let's craft and Create.

Have a lovely evening

♥ Floral boots ♥

Hi there  ... I made this card using the floral wellington boots from Daydream Designs digital coloured images (checkout their store, new additions being added all the time, and gorgeous digi papers)  I would love a pair of funky welly boots and when I get well go splashing in puddles!! .. LOL :)
I decoupaged them and of course a "little sparkle" ;)  adding some flowers & pearls and the sentiment is from Papertrey.
I have this card posted on my Grace be Still blogspot

♥ Let's Craft and Create ~ Anything but a card ♥

Hi everyone ... This fornight's challenge at Let's Craft and Create is "Anything but a card"
We would love to see all your different creations :) 
Pop over to our challenge blog to check out all my talented team pals creations, they are beautiful.
I made this magnet for my fridge :)  I used my new Sizzix jar and label die (they are hard to find now as it's an original, but I got this last month from Cutting Edge Crafts)  I cut the base from chipboard and the gorgeous papers are from Andrea Budjack's new digital collection.  I was very brave and "machine stitched"  through the chipboard ... LOL ... I was sooooo nervous (",)  anyhow my good ole Pfaff machine was fabulous!!!  The back of it (which I didn't photograph) has 3 strips of sticky magnet (amazing stuff!! ) and I added lace, felt flower & button and red chipboard heart to decorate and the stamped sentiment is from my all time favourite Papertrey ~ LOVE LIVES HERE set
This measures around 3" x 4" so quite good size.  Loving all these jars that are on trend at moment

Have a fab day

♥ Rain or shine ~ Daydream designs ♥

Hi everyone :) This is another new relaease of digi's from Daydream designs Store. These are the coloured version (which are fab if you have dexterity problems) I find these extremely helpful and enjoyed working with this set. I decoupaged the umbrella , adding sparkle for the rain and bling!!
The sentiment is from Papertrey, but there is a sentiment set compatiable with this set. I just wanted to show you that you can mix digi and original stamps and papers and embellishments :) ... little bit of this ... and little bit of that :)
Also rain is not always a pain, since my past 5 months of this Neuro disorder, I have just loved watching the rain fall, listening to the birds sing, just all the little things in life most of us take for granted, we all do it , we are only human.
Im delighted that it is September, I love September through to December and im 40 in a few weeks, and it doesn't bother me one bit :) It's only a number :)
Everyday is a blessing so im thankful and have made some amazing friends through blogging

Thanks for looking
Marlou ♥
