Steampunk Series Day 2 of 3

Good Evening Crafty Friends,

I hope you have all had a wonderful day.

Today I am sharing with you day 2 of my Steampunk series.

When I decorated I got rid of the old door plaque to my craft room so decided to make a new one and as those of you who know me know I love Steampunk.

Here is the finished plaque ready for hubby to put on my door.

Fantastic Birthday

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all today!

I have got a very busy day here today catching up on admin and some crafting to do.

Yesterday I received an email from You Tube that they are taking away my monetisation unless I reach 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of viewing by 20th February 2018.

I have put this on my Facebook profile but would love it if my blogging friends would help me by subscribing to my channel and watching at least one of my videos. I am 1036 hours short and this would help me such a great deal. I have worked really hard in providing tutorials and how to videos for my crafting friends and would appreciate it if you could all help me. Here is the link to my You Tube Channel!

Many thanks in advance for your support as I couldn't do it without you!

Today sharing a vintage card with you.


Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square scalloped edge base card.
2. Matted and layered yellow card and patterned paper from LOTV beach bliss paper pack.
3. Matted and layered yellow card and mulberry paper which I have distressed with weathered wood.
4. Matted and layered image onto yellow card.
5. To finish off added the sentiment and made a double bow with yellow organza ribbon and added a gold butterfly to the centre.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
