1st September 2011

Morning crafters!  Well we had a nice day with Max and Emma, Max brought round his new Mario game and was happy playing on the Wii with Granddad and Emma made a cute Halloween card.  Since they are at school next week we are taking them to see the Smurf movie on Sunday - can't wait (I think Granddad can!!).  Today I have made a different kind of card.  When I say different I mean I haven't actually used a stamped image.  I've found (I know if I was tidier I wouldn't "find" things on my worktop - but what's the fun in that I say?) a sheet of images I printed out yonks ago.  The images are all vintage and are really cute, they're from a CD from Tuscan Rose which I have had a while.

The paper is from a pad I've had ages from Papercraft 4 You.  I have computer generated the sentiment, added some flowers from Wild Orchid and the charm I have had ages (finally using some of this stash, well you can only look at it for so long and besides I need the room to get more!!).  I will enter in the following challenges:

Simon Says Challenge and Blog hop - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me Challenge - Add a Charm
Little Red Wagon - Border Punches
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Flower Power
Bearly Mine Challenge - Flowers, Flowers, Flowers
Creative Craft Challenges - Just Charming
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Use Hearts
My Time to Craft - in Full Bloom
CD Sunday Challenge - Just Because (must use something from a CD)
Thanks for looking, please leave a comment and I would love if you would join my followers :-]xx

Hi Susan. What a lovely card. I love the mixture of toning blues you have used. I am with you about the charm. I look at mine and try not to say - you can only use this once.
Thank you for joining in with our Challenge at Cd Sunday.

HI Susan! Your card is quite lovely. I love the different blues that you chose to use on this. The ribbon and bow are beautiful and work perfectly with your design. Love the matting of the picture and the birthday sentiment. The flower embellishment and the hanging heart charm are really perfect as well. Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
