Hi all, today is the start of our challenge at
the theme is
For my DT card I have used one of my old stamps that I believe is a Whiff of Joy stamp, I have had her so long I have forgotten where I got her from.
I inked her up with Momento Tuxedo Ink and coloured with Graph It Markers, I mounted her onto blue textured card stock, the papers are from 
I have used the papers from this selection
Its Stripes
I printed off the darker and lighter shades of blue, both have been mounted onto the same card stock as the image,  the card is 12 x 12 so I actually made the card base as a 6 x 6 card.
I added some antique flower lace, crochet flowers then added some gold liquid pearls.  I went for a blue coloured theme that reminds me of Bluebells, my garden is full of them in the Spring, I keep pulling up the bulbs but they are still everywhere.
Nothing too fancy but I like it I hope you do too.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I really want to thank you so much for visiting my blog I hope you haven't faced too many hurdles to get here but if you have I hope it was worth it ( that is my little dig at Blogger and Google , lol)

Take care and have a lovely day

Hi all, what a day it has been so far, I was doing some die cutting/embossing on my Grand Calibur and guess what happened.........it broke, good job I have the X Cut die cutter that I bought many months ago when it was launched, I only used it once but now it will be my main machine, the only machine I have.  My back is still hurting but better, thank you for your well wishes.  I am also getting a lot of 'mail delivery failures' I leave comments but later I get this notification, I am really at the end of my tether with Google and Blogger I am seriously thinking of either opening a new blog or finishing the set up of my Word Press blog.  I am so sorry to be moaning please forgive me, I think I am a little tired, instead I will tell you about my card.

I have used, I believe,  one of the most popular Tiddly Inks image of Wryn 'Grow a Pot Of Love'.
I coloured her with Graph it Markers then cut her out using my new Tattered Lace rectangle die, I then laced some pale lilac ribbon through the holes and added a bow, the base card I embossed with my new Hessian Embossing Folder then sanded it down to show a distressed look.  The papers are LOTV the image and papers have all been mounted onto pink card stock.
I used my new quilling flower die to create the flowers, I used yellow for the middle then pink.  I stamped a sentiment then added lace and some resin roses and heart pearls.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
