Hi lovely bloggers! Hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend and having some sunshine in your part of the world.
It's my DIL's 40th tomorrow, and this is the card I have made for her, though it isn't what I set out to achieve. I was aiming for "shabby chic" as that is her favourite style, but you know how it is - some days things just don't seem to go according to plan!!  As time is fast running out, it was either this, or a trip to Clintons on the way to her birthday party tomorrow afternoon! Hope she likes it!
BP is K&Co Madeline (which is a lovely pale green IRL), computer-generated sentiment, die cut and layered with Nesties. Core'dinations deep pink card distressed with sandpaper, flowers punched with EK Success retro flower punches, and a couple of CB hearts. Gems and pink netting from my stash, and some machine stitching to finish.
Love and hugs to you all, Sylvia xxxxxx

Hiya Peeps! At last, my crafty stuff has been dug out and dusted down, and I am now trying to find my Mojo and the missing brain cell, and whilst I look for them I thought I would share this card I made today, using stamps from Crafty Individuals. The BP is an old freebie from Tinker & Co.
For the main image, I randomly applied Broken China and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks onto white card, using Ranger Cut'nDry Foam, then stamped the fairy with Versafine Vintage Sepia. The Crafty Individuals sentiment and large Swirl were both stamped with Broken China DI.
Ribbon from stash, Anna Griffin butterfly punch, Glamour Dust here and there, card edged with Spiced Marmalade (ink)!!
Will be popping by to see what you have all been up to, as soon as I can.
In the meantime, love and hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxxx

NO CARDS JUST YET ..............!

Hi peeps!  Still amongst the dust and dirt, and no kitchen, but hey - we do have a tap!  However, enough about the kitchen - I  have some great news I would love to share
Sooooo, having just finished my time as Guest Designer with the lovely DT ladies at DU2DS Friday Challenge Chris has invited me to join the DT on a permanent basis.  Needless to say, I am honoured to be asked, and very much looking forward to joining the Team at the beginning of June.
