There's a new showcase today over at Christine's Digi Adventure and I must say Chris's DT have really come up with some stunning makes !!!

When I saw this digi image from Chris I just knew I had to turn it into a Vintage Postcard .... so I hope you like it !!

Pretty Things With Wings

I really was just sat phaffing when I started this piece of work at 5am this morning and I'm really not a pink kinda girly at all but I had some pink Angelina fibres looking at me plus Sam Poole's new stamp 'Bubble Wrap' was shouting 'use me, use me' .....  so I did .... along with some of Sam's other new stamps that she's just brought out .... which you can find here @     In fact all of the stamps on here you find over in Sam's shop.

I found this old paper in my stash that when you stamp on it, use Picket Fence over the top, stamp a bit more, Picket Fence it again it ends up looking like a canvas ..... well I think it does !

Have added some more close up shots for you all to peruse over :o))

Hope you all like it :o))

DT post for Crafty Bloggers Network - Challenge #23

It's June already ! ... it's time for a new challenge over @ Crafty Bloggers Network and this fortnight's theme is .............         '3D PAPER FOLDING'.

Now I cant really say that Paper Folding grips me in an way to be honest but if you're a DT member then you have a bash at anything ..... well you do if you've remembered to do the challenge .... which I hadn't ....until the very last minute (it's been a bad week lol) ....... so as a last minute make I came up with a 3D paper folded Pomander !!

I used scraps of card to make 20 different sized hearts ..... added some colour to them with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, stamped a script stamp over all of them, added the ribbon for hanging it, ribbon to decorate it and diamante bead chain ......... fastest make ever .... hope you like it !

Please pop on over to  and join in the challenge !! :o))
