Fancy and Frilly

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and this week the theme is:

FANCY AND FRILLY

We'd love to see your creations that follow this theme.  You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it so much if you do that you can then enter twice!  Here is what I have made:


I have used the gorgeous Luvvy Baby which comes in a set with a sentiment and the ABC blocks which you can purchase here at Digital Delights.  He has been coloured with my Copics and I have cut him out and popped him up on some foam squares.  The mat behind has been embossed with tiny hearts and that has been popped up on some foam squares over a Nestie.  The frilled lace and gems are from my stash.  The ABC blocks are from the same set and  I have paper pieced them with some Pink Dots Digital Paper and also used the Pink Check Paper which are available here in the Sweetheart Digital Paper set from Digital Delights. Here is a peek at the inside:


Oops a bit wonky I think!  I have used the sentiment from the set and cut it out with Romantic Rectangles by Spellbinders.  This set is really good value as you get the Luvvy Bear image, blocks and a sentiment it comes either for a girl or a boy. Pop over to Digital Delights to see some fantastic images that Wendy has designed. Our sponsors this week are:


The Cutting Cafe will be giving the lucky winner three sets from their store!!  So please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the talented DT have made - some real inspiration there.

Thanks for all your good wishes about my daughter, unfortunately there is no improvement at the moment.  The consultant is coming to see her again today and someone comes each day to see her and I am hoping that we will start to see an improvement soon.  Take care xx
