DT post for Crafty Ribbons

Hiya peeps

Today, being Thursday, sees the start of the new challenge over at Crafty Ribbons, the theme is Lace, but this means that you must use a piece of lace , not lace card or paper!!

Please dont forget we are having our 12 weeks countdown to CHRISTMAS ...yes 12 weeks not be long!! for the big man in his red suit.


So this challenge is only running for a week 

Our prize this week is a voucher from Crafty Ribbons to the value of £10.

For my card I made a double fold easel card using a lovely shade of purple card and topped with a matching to the shading of the flowers card. 
I cut a large decorative edged circle topper for the decoupaged flower (from Hunkydory)  to sit on
and another shaped die cut for the sentiment. I also die cut some flourishes in the same purple shade of card. The lace I used, is  French Cotton Lace - Clermont Cotton 18mm is the approx width  (other colours and other thicknesses/types of lace are available).
I made a chocolate box bow using the same lace too as with this lace being made using quite thick cotton its too thick to make a normal bow. 
The final embellishment I used was a pale pink mesh butterfly with a faux gem as its body and stuck it using Pinflair glue gel to stick it near the decoupaged lily flowers.

I hope you like my take on this card, the main thing though is please dont forget you only have one week to enter your entry for this challenge..


I am entering this card in to the following challenges:

Halfway Reminder for Crafting Musketeers Challenge #29...........


Hiya peeps

The theme this month for our challenge is Autumnal Colours and I have chosen a beautiful image from Hunkydory of which the picture is in 3 pieces but I just placed them together and its still gorgeous. The corner pieces are from the same toppers page and are the same beautiful colours too. I used a Buttercup coloured ribbon and a white lace, both of which are from Crafty Ribbons.

Our sponsor this month is Oak House Studio where they have some gorgeous goodies for your viewing and purchase (if you wish to).

A DT CALL OUT.......

It's a Design Team Call Out time over at Sugar Nellie!!!!!!  

Check the details out and enter through this link......... Sugar Nellie DT Call Out


A "Back To School" Guest Design Team card

Hiya peeps,
A Guest Design Team make for you today, I hope you like it....

OK, the GDT make is for Lacy Sunshine (again lol) and this time I used Eleanor & Pickles Back To School  and is one of a number of new fantastic digi images from Heather, a fabulous artist and the person behind all the digi's from Lacy Sunshine

I used 2 new ribbons from Crafty Ribbons and all the buttons, all relative for going to school, for this make, the bows and both backing pages are from my own stash. The design cut of the actual base card is a new concept to me and it turned out fairly good but I will have to get better at it... practice makes perfect.

I hope you will check out the challenge blog over at Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog, Winds Of Change Challenge (Changing Seasons).   My make, actual, was meant to make out that it was a Changing Season with the start of the new school year and this is Eleanor & Pickles first day of school so it was a BIG change for them and the parents.
