Hi folks! Its a busy household here today with the teachers strike and therefore all the kiddies at home! Of course it would be in the week when hubby is on nights so it is a mammoth job trying to keep them quiet enough so he can sleep! We are going to break out all the christmas decorations today so that should keep them busy for a bit!
We have another challenge this wk over at creative inspirations (sponsored by crafty ribbons) and I'm being a bit sneaky by combining my DT work and using this for the Divas by design challenge too! Our colour combo at CI is purple, Turquoise and white and our theme at Divas is nice and easy anything goes (sponsored by crafty pad)!
I haven't inked up my sweetpea stamps in too long and was inspired to do so by another one of my CI teamies using a sweetpea too this wk! I also thought it was about time I attempted to dig through some of my ever increasing pile of scraps so this card is made with a selection of leftovers from digi downloads at far far hill.
I have used the sketch at sketch saturday for my card (it is there I have just covered a fair proportion of it!) and have used flowers and lace from wild orchids with cheesecloth and pearls coming from stash, sentiment from Waltzingmouse and butterfly from e bay.
My beautiful image has been coloured with prisma pencils, inked around the edges with dusty concord and machine stitched. I have used stickles and glamour dust on the scrolled moon behind her. There are stickles on all the flowers too but the dull winter light doesn't do much for sparkly photos!
I would also like to enter this into OLLCB lots of sparkle, Stamp with fun sewn/stitching, Party time tues anything goes, totally gorjuss sparkle and Dream valley sparkle challenge.
Thanks for coming by my blog again do check out the teams creations on both challenge blogs and we would love to see you join in too! Big hugs to all
