Hi everyone! You would not believe how happy I am to be posting this today. Yeah I know it's been far too long between my posts of late and for that I'm truly sorry.....but I've saved it all up and got loads to tell you about now, sooooo I'll begin with the reason for this post. I was thrilled and gob smacked when I found out a little while ago that I was picked over at the fab
Lili of the Valley Ideas to Inspire challenge blog
winning a Guest design spot for October! Well, you can guess how excited I was, this kind of thing usually only happens to other very talented crafters, not little old me - I had to double and triple check that they actually meant me lol!
Enough of the waffle....here's my first creation: a simple side step card featuring Red Squirrels Pine Tree from the latest LOTV launch.
I cut the side step design out of a Go Kreate die shaped card, paper used was Magnolia Turning Leaves - Vintage Mushrooms. I randomly painted some corrugated card and the 'pinecones' with white acrylic paint, stapled some vintage lace to this layer too and added a gold frantaged leaf charm with linen thread.
I used distress inks to colour this gorgeous image, and machine stitched around to finish it off.
The birthday sentiment/message card is topped with a double layer of 'lace' using Magnolia scalloped stitched doohickey border die and tucked in an 'envelope' based on a criss cross card design, finished off with linen thread and a button.
Thanks for visiting me today, I hope you like my card and I will be back as soon as I can with my next creation
