CHOCOLATE at LIVE AND LOVE CRAFTS

Hi everyone

I am here to share a card today which I made just because I felt like it.  It is such a long time since I have done this. I loved making this card too.  Well, who would not, when you think of the combination of Chocolate, Live and Live Crafts and Shabby Chic!  What more could a girl ask for!  And working with lovely materials, well that was just the icing on the cake.  Actually there is a little story to this one, and I will keep this very brief:

I had severe lack of mojo.  Inspiration was just zilch.  Then I saw the Challenge at LLC, and it suddenly came to me to get my lovely goodies out  from Live and Live Crafts and play.  I keep these together in two boxes (one for papers and one for embellishments).  Actually two bags as well!  Well, this is what got me going again.  I think old Mojo had gone on strike and was saying 'its time to use these lovely materials' Haha.  I must admit I am chuffed with this card and it really has inspired me no end to keep going.

So, onto the card:

The lovely topper is from Kraftyhands (frantage added)
Tim Holtz die-cut (Frantage added)
The papers, shabby ribbon, hearts, charm, Frantage and  flowers and pleated ribbon (just seen peeping through at the top left and right ) are all from Live and Love Crafts
Everything else is from my stash.



I would of course like to enter it into the Challenge HERE at Live and Love Crafts where the theme is entitled 'Chocolate'

Thanks for looking,

SWEET STAMPIN CHALLENGE - LOTS OF LAYERS

Hi everyone

I am delighted to be back with another Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Sweet Stamping   The  theme to this Challenge is entitled  'lots of layers' which you will guess put a nice smile on my face.

I suddenly remembered about the lovely 'Adorables' digis that I have.  I have not used those for simply ages and this girly one I just love.  So I got to work with my Copics and here we have it.  Well layers say to me 'Pearls and Lace', so I could not resist making a real girly card.  The papers are as lovely pack from Kraftyhands called 'Kew', I am absolutely gone on these papers.  It has been made very much from items I had in my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
There is a a lovely sponsor: 

Challenge Theme: Lots of Layers
Weekly: Heather Ellis/Marianne Design








Please do pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work here.  It is a lovely Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!

FUSSY & FANCY CHALLENGE - PEARLS AND LACE

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to be back with a Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Fussy and Fancy    This week the Challenge is being hosted by our very talented Ivonne 

We have a fabulous sponsor:  Marianne Design
There is a lovely inspiration photo too.

Well I have been so inspired lately by Beth's  lovely Exploding Boxes so I opted to make one a little larger than I normally make.  Isn't it lovely that we can all inspire each other.  I used Anja and heart die-cuts from Marianne Design and the flowers are handmade using Cheery Lynn dies.  The gorgeous topper is from Kraftyhands although I did purchase this locally.

So, onto some photos:






In addition the Cheesecloth is available from Live and Love Crafts and I used items from my stash.  Usually I use lace purchased locally too.

 I do hope you have time to pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work on the Fussy and Fancy  blog.  It is a fabulous Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!
