My Birthday Candy

Hello Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I am glad to be home after having an amazing holiday in Turkey with my lovely hubby Rick.
I will be posting later in the week photographs of our time in Istanbul and a couple of the lovely lace I got.

On Saturday it is my birthday and I am celebrating by giving blog candy away to two people.
One person who comments on my mixed media blog and another who adds their name to Mr Linky below.


There are only a couple of things to do to be in with a chance and that is:

1. Be a follower of my blog
2. Leave a comment and add your name to Mr Linky

Why not pop on over to my mixed media blog for another chance at winning!

Thanks for all your support and inspiration.

Artful Days 2nd Project

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am sharing with you my second project using Artful Days September Goodie Box.

This month the theme is "with wings"

I have made a box card to showcase just some of the products in this box.


I first created the box using pearlescent card and made a card wrap which folds over the box.


I used this beautiful paper which is from Craft Emotions A5 Botanical papers.


I cut down a piece of the cream hammered card to fit inside the box. I distressed with DI bundle sage and used a couple of stencils from my stash and stencilled through them with DI forest moss.
I then cut out the fence using one of my die and adhered to the outside of the box.
I then decorated the background with the birds, butterfly and roses. The butterfly trail I used the gold micro beads.


To finish off the front of the box card I added the metal butterfly charm and 4 pearl flat back gems.


Don't forget to visit Artful Days to check out next months goodie box.
