Good morning everyone and I hope you are all ok and had a nice weekend. We have had some sunny weather here in Blackpool which has been nice but today it is back to rain! I am sorry I have not been around much but I am still suffering with this virus, it seems to be all in my throat now and I can't stop coughing you know the kind of irritating cough that doesn't sound like anything is wrong!! I would like to welcome my newest followers and thank you so much for joining me!!
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme is "For a Friend". For some reason I thought this challenge was sentiment only which is what I did, but luckily the sentiment I chose was for a friend! I tell you I think I am loosing the plot lately!!
I have use The Gift sentiment which you can purchase from Fairy Dust Crafts and changed the colour in Word to match my card. The cardstock I have used is really pretty its like a satin damask, here is a close up:
Not sure if it shows up better there or not!! I have used Spellbinders Lace Doily Motifs as a mat for the sentiment which was first cut and embossed with a square Nestie. The flower is another Spellbinders die called Aster Flower Topper. The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Die and I have used some fab glitter card that my daughter bought for me when we were in Florida a couple of years ago - its a giant 12x12 pad with all different colours of glitter card - delish!! On the flower I added some Milled Lavender DI while they were still in the die. The spacer is from E Bay and the pearl brad from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Our sponsor's this week are Fairy Dust Crafts so pop over there and have a look at what they have, you won't be disappointed! If you go over to Lexi's Creations you can see what the rest of the talented DT have created.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
