Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend, I hope you had the best one ever...we had a quiet Sunday, in fact every time I sat down I nodded off and Phil wasn't much better I heard him softly snoring a couple of times too bless him, I think all this decorating and renovating is catching up with us... well it was bound to sooner or later wasn't it...well this is a long post today so I will get straight onto it...my first card is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge and this month is our fab teamie Silvie's choice and she chose Easel Cards...I love making easel cards don't you...I chose to use this fantastically cute Tickled Pink Lil Pinkette Tom Boyz Pippa stamp, I love that look on her face don't you, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush lush Echo Park Victoria Garden papers, gorgeous aren't they, I'm so pleased I persuaded myself to bye these (do you think I took a lot of persuading lol)...I finished with some buttons, string and ribbon and a tag cut from the same papers...I cant wait to see all your fantastic easel cards you make for our Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge this time round...I'm entering this for the Papertake Weekly and Craft Us Crazy challenges
my next card is for a brand new monthly challenge from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge and for our first challenge the lovely Sarah chose...well what else could it be for the first challenge but Ribbons, as simple as add a ribbon to your creation or make something spectacular using ribbons, your choice...I chose to use this beautiful 25mm wide Baby Blue Satin ribbon and a few buttons from the Blues Button Pack both from the Pretty Little Ribbon shop, I also used this beautiful Carousel Horse digi stamp from Rick St Denise's Etsy shop, I coloured it with distress inks and used a mix of spots and striped papers
there's something about pink and blue together isn't there...its one of those colour combos that always works so well...Im entering this for the Sketch N Stash challenge (my new stash is the ribbon and the old stash is the digi I have had it ages) and the Stamp Something August Digi challenge too...when you have the time pop on over to our challenge blogs and see what the rest of our teams have come up with, there's so many hugely talented people on the teams...
phew that was a long one wasn't it and thanks for sticking with it everyone, well that's if you stuck with it lol, I promise tomorrows will be much shorter and a little treat for all of you...I'm off to the Post Office then out for coffee with my wonderful Dad today...whatever your up to have a fantastic day
