The challenge this week at C.R.A.F.T. is a recipe of 2 buttons, 2 square shapes and 3 papers. For my DT card the pink dotty paper is a freebie from a magazine and the other 2 dps are from a K&Co. Recycled remake pad. The 2 pink buttons are from Blonde Moments. The 2 squares have images by Little Claire's coloured with pro-markers. I've added some pink felt rik-rak ribbon by Papermania, a birthday sentiment and a pink rose from stash. Cs is grey bazzil. I've used a Martha Stewart doily lace punch on some of the K&Co. paper. Hope you can join us at C.R.A.F.T. for this week's challenge, as there will be a fab prize. Claire will be announcing which applicants will be joining us on the DT too. Talking of DTs please take a look at the fab creations by the rest of the 'old' design team. I'm also entering this card into Simon Says Challenge where the theme is buttons and ribbons. There are 2 buttons and a ribbon on my card. Also A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 63 which is 'Floral Fantasy'. My card has a rosebud, plus the images have flowers in them. Lastly, I'm entering it into PaperPlay Challenge 28 where the theme is 'Dimension' of which I think my card has, as the only flat part is the 3 papers.
On a completely different subject, I'm so excited at the mo, as I'm having my new crafting cabin built in the garden tomorrow. The base is ready, and we've got someone coming out to build it all, so I'll have to take some pics and pop them on when it's all completed. I probably won't be in it for a couple of weeks yet though, as it will need cladding inside, and painting, then the furniture has to be arranged. Hopefully, it'll be ready for using early September. I can't wait, no more avalanches every time i want something at the bottom of the pile, and we'll get our living room back at last.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
