Good morning everyone, another beautiful hot week here in the midlands. 
Great way to start the summer hols  :-)

I need to apologise to my Crafty Ribbon team mates for forgetting to post my DT card yesterday.. 
The day just ran away with me, even though I was up at 4am lol..

Anyway it's here now, along with the winner of my candy giveaway..

First my card.. The challenge this time over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog is

                              The prize is a voucher to spend at the Crafty Ribbon store

For my card I used Cream congratulations ribbon

I used some very very old papers from my stash for this card and layered them onto gold mirri.
The numbers are so wooden ones I picked up from a local warehouse and are great value for money. Must get some more ;-) I sprayed them with crafters companions spray and sparkle

Seaside scene

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends 

Hope you are all well.. With the lovely weather we were having last week we decided to have a trip to the coast yesterday but had to cancel because of the thundery showers lol.. 
So last night I created a beach scene card instead lol..

I used several images from PGD for this card.. All layered and positioned into place using Docrafts Digital Designer..

I used the gorgeous LOTV Up Up and Away papers (love these)
A die cut doily, shells my auntie collected from many of the beaches she visits...
Nautical ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
Sentiment and charms from my stash..

Really enjoyed making this card, but I think I could have done with some smaller shells..


Right off to get creative 
Have a good day everyone..

I ordered some new LOTV paper pads while there were on offer this week.. Oh I do love all of them, so need to win the lottery ;-)

Anyway for this card I have used a LOTV art pad topper that I Coloured over with my promarker to darker the hat and jumper. I also used the gorgeous Papers from the Up Up and Away pad..

The numbers are wooden ones I picked up from a local warehouse, coloured with promarkers then sprayed with crafters companions silver spray and sparkle, just to add that bit of bling
(Not sure if you can see it very well in the pics)

I used hessian, ribbon, charm and buttons all from my stash..
