In the Pink

I'm not the brightest bulb in the box ,it took me a while to get it almost right . I originally did a row of a stitching down either side but that's something else I'm not very good at so I stuck the white border on instead . This card is based on Merry's creation which I really liked.

Crafting With Dragonflies - challenge 11 - Use your scraps -at least 5 papers. I've used  7 designs.

Southern Girls - challenge 78- The World in  Mono .I think I can be excused the white strips down the sides.

Creative Craft  Cottage - challenge 6 - Round Like A Record .My punch went into top gear for this one.

Let's Craft and Create - challenge 79 - Colour Me Happy  -  Pink - Makes me think of Strawberry icecream , Candy Floss .The older I get the more pink I find in the wardrobe ,it's a bit scary .

1st Birthday

Sorry about the wonky photo. This card is winging it's way to Portland ,Oregon . I know lots about this little girl and her family but will probably never meet them.I love all my Internet buddies who share their lives ,good times and bad . I hope I will be making another card for this precious little angel next year.

Shopping Our Stash - challenge 120 - Kids - The pink paper I've had about ten years and it's perfect for my girly card . All the other  elements are at least a year old.
Through the Craft Room Door - Sept 24th - 30th - Anything Goes.
Mema's Crafts - September challenge - Ribbon/lace and or flowers. I've managed all 3 with my lace at the top ,flower brads and pink spotty ribbon across the bottom .

Stickers and stitching

My aim this year was to use my stash for card making . Over a 10 year period I have bought ,won and been given all manner of ribbons ,stickers ,stamps ,paper all of which takes up space . I started this card with a scrap of peach coloured paper and some brown ink . The leaves are from Starform Stickers and are stitched with gold thread , the side boarder is on the same sheet. A sticker sentiment covered by a transparent sticker frame completes my card.

Birthday fishes

I used an  aperture card for this one . I really liked the card made by Darlene and whilst mine is not an exact copy it gave me  the idea. Darlene makes a card and a video every Wednesday .
