Nursing a cold!
Quirky Crafts and she has chosen a Quirky Love Story with a recipe (Valentines/love with ribbon and a dangling charm). We have a sponsor, Robyn's fetish, who provided the DT with some fun Digital images. Mine was the very cute 'Bearly Luv' and I decided to decorate a white chocolate bar for Tim. I first stamped lots of different hearts (I have a set of clear hearts, not sure where from though, sorry) in distress ink (fired brick) onto parchment patterned paper, then wrapped the ribbon round, attached the charm with jump rings to make it dangle, and finished it off with the Bearly Luv image coloured in promarker pens. I am also entering this into PTW 'Anything goes with a heart', Simon says stamp 'love is in the air', Delightful challenges 'love' and Delicious Doodles 'All loved up',
Try it on Tuesday 'Cards for a true love', Tuesday Throwdown 'Be my valentine', Crafty Creations 'Swirly Whirly', Stampavie 'love', The Pixie Cottage 'red', DYSU 'love', Paperplay 'love letters' and Fussy & Fancy 'With all my heart'.
Less is More! This challenge was one layer card with Stripes. What a challenge!!! I don't have anything remotely stripey so I tried all sorts of things that looked awful and ended up in the bin before coming up with this. I masked the strip across the middle and used shabby shutters distress ink with cut and dry foam to colour it in relatively evenly. I then used the edge of the distress ink pad to make my stripes before stamping the Lavinia Poppy stamp and the Hero arts bird stamp and colouring them with promarker pens. I hope that this is striped enough to count! I am also entering this into Fluorishes Timeless Tuesday 'fly away with me', Pixie Dust '2 or more images', Sew many challenges 'Birthday'. That's all from me for me now. Hopefully we will be a lurgy free household soon! Have a great week everyone.
