a christmas teddy and candy news...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a brilliant weekend, ours was very quiet and restful, the kind I like now and again but not every weekend, I think Phil is taking advantage of the quiet as we are off to the Belfast Crafts show next weekend so the poor man will be bored out of his brain, mind its his own fault as I said I'm quite happy going alone, maybe hes scared he will miss something lol...when Phil came hone on Friday night his first job was to clear the biggest squished spider the one I couldn't pick up with the vacuum, and I quote he said 'bloody hell, that's a big un' lol...see I told you it was a biggie...anyway its that time again, time for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge and this month our fabulous Michele's choice and her challenge is lace it up, so use lace somewhere on your creation


I made a kinda 3d sorta card, sorry don't know what its called as I haven't seen it anywhere well except in my head, its three layers two of which have holes cut out, I think it would make a fantastic photo frame don't you...the idea came to me from the papers as the front sheet looks like a book cover...the lush fantastic papers are from the Fancy Pants 6x6 paper pad Saint Nick, now how fantastic is this Stampavie Tina Wenke Holiday Bear just perfect for any Christmas project isn't it, I coloured it with my usual distress inks and added a bit of glitter, I finished my card with some beautiful lace from the Marianne D Vintage white lace pack and a beautiful glittery gem candy cane from my stash...all the goodies for my card except the charm are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I will be back later with some lush new Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly candy so keep an eye out for it...have a wonderful day whatever your up to, I'm going to have a rummage in my craft room to make a list of essentials I need before the weekend...when you have the time pop on over to our challenge blog to see what the rest of our fabulous team have come up with this month

Bit of a play on your eyes. The papers are perfect for it. I love the final layered product. The bear is colored beautifully as always.

Thank God for your Phil! He really is your hero!

Beautiful card Mina, adorable little teddy and love the design of the card. I think your hubby is more worried about how much your going to spend at the Craft Fair rather than what he's going to miss, have fun, I'm hoping to go this weekend too. hugs Donna x

Mina your card is really gorgeous, so unique. I cant wait until Friday, Im not bothering with a list.....Im just gonna "buy, buy, buy"! heehee. I dont have a lot of good patterned papers or much ribbon so Im going to be getting that oh and my white card stock....better not forget that! And pretty much anything that falls into my lap will be coming back home with me. Hope you have a great day. Set Phil in the wee cafe with a tea/coffee and a newspaper, he'll be happy as larry. lol.

Gorgeous :)

Rufus said...

Adorable Teddy! Like your new Mina shaped card. Guess catching one of the devils with the vase didn't work out, huh? Squished sounds like a better plan to me anyway. Phil is a brave man, my hubby wouldn't go to a show with me on a bet! Not sure I'd let him even if he wanted to come, lol!

Gorgeous, There is a Wild Rose Studio blog hop and you can win a grand prize or a small one. All you have to do is make a christmas themed card and comment on all the dt blogs. You dont have to use a Wild Rose Studio product, but we would love it if you did. Would love to see you there.

Christine L said...

Hi Mina..
Lovely card... really like that idea of the three layer, must try it out sometime!
