I had a wonderful day catching up with Kath yesterday, I did some colouring with my digi's which are all ready to be made into cards.

Another busy day here this morning a few errands and possibly getting into the craft room later, it all depends if Rick has any plans for this afternoon.

I haven't made a vintage card for ages so here is one especially for you!


Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 white square card base which I have matted and layered brown card.
2. I took papers from the Blissful pink and cocoa papers and distressed with my scissors and DI ground espresso before matting and layering onto the card base.
3. I then added some dark beige lace before adhering the image on foam pads.
4. Next I added the flowers (these are from Turkey) and pearl gems to the centres.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment from Tim Holtz Small Talk.

Thank You Plaque

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all this morning?

My car passed its service with flying colours which made me extremely relieved.

Today's project is a plaque and I have used stamps and inks from Stamps by Me


Step by Step

1. Adhered stamping paper to the MDF square plaque with Mod Podge
2. Stamped the daisies and sentiment with black Generation INX.
3. Distressed the whole of the plaques with blue Generation INX, added deep blue colour pencil around the daisies for shadow and coloured over the daisies with glitter pen.
4. Adhered sky card to the back of the plaque and added yellow butterfly with pearl down the body.
5. To finish off I added the navy blue ribbon and 2 pearl gems.
