A Card and My Goodies

Firstly thank you to everyone for your kind words and thoughts here on the blog and also for the emails I have recieved regarding our loss of Dusty, they are all very comforting.


It's a new challenge this week over on Pollycrafts Monday Challenge and the DT and GD's have all come up with some wonderful projects for this weeks theme which is....

"No Cards Allowed"

I've done a non-card project though of course I'll not be entering into the challenge.

It is a desk calender made from an old plastic CD case.

This also fits in with this weeks SophistiCat' s challenge which is 'WINGS' so I'm entering this into their challenge as the main image has wings as has the little bee.


Images - 'Sharing Sherbert' Clear Stamps Range from Pollycrafts
(main image 'Secrets', Bee 'Xtra Set 1 and Flowers 'Xtra Set 2)

Background Paper - Basic Grey 'Lemonade'

Embellishments - Gems and Ribbon from stash, Calender from Hobbycraft.

Colouring Medium - Copics, Promarkers and Sakura Stardust


Despite yesterdays sad news and worry I did have a wonderful day yesterday at the NEC with Emma and was so pleased to also meet up with Crafty Amy (a fellow Pollycraft GD), Taffy Clare and Vicki.  I think we can all safely say that a good time was had by all socialising as well as of course the retail therapy.  I've no pictures of all of us, my camara is too big to lug around but I know Amy, Clare and Vicki did take some photo's so keep an eye out for them on their blogs.  I have taken a piccy though of all my goodies.

Thanks for stopping by!!
