Grape Vine Dress

Hi everyone. I'm writing this post whilst hubby is watching rugby on the TV and as much as I'd like to share an interest with him rugby is not going to be anything I will ever like, except for the tall, beefy men, lol!

Today's card is the birthday card I made for my best friend's birthday. I've learnt from past birthdays not to use my best lace, charms and flowers on her cards. I think I already told you that after a week on her mantelpiece her cards go straight in the bin however long you've spent making it. So this card is made with just card, a few paper flowers (coloured to match the image), pearls and a lot of stamping. My friend liked it, I hope you like it too.

and a close up....

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Rugby season will have me catching up on my recorded programs, crafting and blogging so I suppose it has it's plus side. My next post will have my Candy Giveaway with the prize from Fairy My World who are having a sale at the moment as they are moving to new premises so it's worth having a look as a lot of their stamps are half price.

See you again soon and sending you all a big hug,

Womack gift bag

Hi everyone and a warm welcome to my new followers Lynne J and Marilyn S. Thank you for joining my little blog family and I hope you get chance to visit me often.
Today's creation is a gift bag using some stamps from Fairy My World  Womack, from the Womack and Luther stamps, and North Pole. I enjoyed colouring the images as they're not so detailed that they take ages to colour but are still really lovely images. So here's my gift bag.....
