White Wedding :-)

Good Morning :-) I hope you’re all enjoying this lovely sunny weekend :-) ,,,,, well it is lovely here !! Hot and Sunshiney :-)

The theme over on the Less is More Challenge is Love and Marriage ,,, always a lovely theme eh :-)

I used a plain white card base and embossed a panel of the same card, I glittered the swirls and dabbed the hearts with a pearl dabber for a slightly shimmery look.
I used a MFT Hearts Aplenty die to create an embellie. I cut them out several times and glued  3 or 4 together to make them more like chipboard. I used the pink layering card for the top layer and glued and glittered it. The smaller one was dabbed with the pearl dabber. I then wrapped some twine around and added a little button, I quite like how that turned out :-) I finished with a silver heat embossed sentiment. 

Thanks for looking :-) I hope you all have a lovely Sunday whatever you are doing :-)
I have a candy at the top of my blog if you are interested in joining in :-)

Always and Forever :-)

Hi all :-) I am back with another card using the products in the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit :-) 

I chose a quite plain paper and stamped a Hero Arts Envelope Pattern background with white pigment ink  and heat set.  I used the black card ( in the kit) for layering and added a few punched hearts  down the side.

I still have loads left in the box to play with so I may be back later !! :-)

Simon Says ,,,,,, Anything Goes !! :-)

Oh bloomin ekk ,, blogger is being a nightmare  !! I posted this earlier and it sent my whole blog haywire, I have had th re write the whole thing ,,,, :-(

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge the theme is ,,,,,,,,


The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring October Afternoon products this week,you don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them used if you have them :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I used this super cute Happy Hoppers ‘Rabbits of the Round Table’ image ,, I thought it went just perfectly with the chair design paper in the October Afternoon  Farmhouse pack :-)

I decided to make an easel type card as this stamp is quite large and it enables me to add more bits n bobs to it :-) Also I loved the paper with the banners printed on it and wanted to use one as a room decoration :-) I will add all the links at the bottom of this post.

As the paper pack is 8x8 inches there was a lovely strip of paper just waiting to be used so I made this quick card too :-)

In retrospect I think this might work better as a ‘You’re Invited’ ,,, for dinner card,,, a friend also said it could be used for  a game of musical chairs invitation,, LOL ,,, :-)
I love the Little Flyers flags ,,and the matching Farmhouse buttons ,, I love it when everything coordinates perfectly!! :-) The text was cut on my FAB Silhouette Cameo machine ,,, what a fab invention that is !! LOVE LOVE LOVE it  :-)
