Feeling Sentimental

Hi, and welcome!

Our weather started out bright and sunny, and pleasantly warm, today........great!
But, this is England.........cue dark, heavy clouds, rain, thunder, and a whole lot of wet laundry, soppin' on the line!
I'm not a happy bunny.........

Okay, need to put it behind me, and hope for better times to come....haaaaa!

And what better way than to play in another challenge at 

This week we have a challenge that is likely to be very popular.......


So, just create something and include a sentiment.......that's it!

Our random winner will receive two sets of images from the fabulous

Here's my card, using one of their cute designs....... 

All the backing papers are from Nitwits, and inked around the edges........

The sweet image is coloured with the usual suspects (PMs).....just look at that cheeky iccle face!  I cut out the image with a nestie shape, then added another scalloped circle which I inked, for dimension.  I found these charming tiny flowers in my stash.......ooooh, it's like finding treasure, whenever I dig to the bottom of a drawer...haa!.....and added the green flat-backed pearls around the scalloped edge....lovely.....
I free-hand cut a piece of the Nitwits paper into a banner shape, and inked, then layered my sentiment (also from Nitwits) onto it.
The little tab shape was cut from pink textured card, and inked, and three cute buttons tied with ribbon are the finishing touch.

Hope you like, and want to play.....go know you want to!!

  2. I'd have cut it by laser eye rather than free-hand, but then my looks can achieve that, or so I'm told! And by looks, I mean the way I'm looking not my glamorous appearance, ha!
    Love those NitWits papers :)
    Have a great weekend!
