Hello everyone! Goodness it has been forever since I last blogged, sorry! Things have been busy here behind the scenes, both crafting and not so my apologies for my absence!
Our dear pup has had her final vaccinations so she can go out for walking soon which will be great as she needs to be tired out, she is getting into allsorts right now!
It's always busy this time of year for us too as we seem to have birthday parties by the tonne, the kids always stay out or up later as it's so bright, there are school fetes and sports days and then we have the jubilee parties organised by school and brownies/guides. My eldest is going on guide camp for the first time in a week and then as soon as she comes back we are off on a family holiday to butlins (we also come back the day before my daughter's birthday!) So I have resorted to making lists of things I need to do and organize or else nothing would get down out of sheer panic!
Enough of my excuses it's challenge time again at Creative Inspirations and we are lucky enough to be sponsored by the Fabulous Simon Says stamp for our most brilliant theme of ANYTHING GOES, phew thank goodness for the easy one!
My apologies for the card on the challenge blog, I took it late at night so it's with the flash and I retook for this as I'm not a big fan of flash enhanced photos!
My card has been made with stunning Teresa Collins papers (ooo so want some more of these they are yummy!) I have also used a little cheesecloth and a large heart doily. Some folks have been asking lately where I get my cheesecloth and i get it from Amazon generally or e bay depending on price and it comes in a fairly big pack that lasts me ages.
I was meant to machine stitch all my layers and then totally forgot and stuck it all down duh!
My pretty flowers are WOC, prima and Mulberry crafts with my sentiment from waltzingmouse and my butterfly from little snippets.
How do you like my new watermark too? Janet at Pink Gem Designs has some fabulous ones and so cheap!
My darling image is one from the Emerald faerie garden. I adore this image for baby cards and really should break out my EF images more often as they are adorable! I have coloured her with prisma pencils and stamped the corners with a stempelglede flourish stamp.
I would like to enter this card into..
