Thank You

Morning peeps, popping on this morning before I head off to a craft sale this afternoon.  I am glad it is one indoors as it is chucking it down at the moment.  I think I am still thawing out from last weeks Scribblers Picnic in Stirling 

This is a commissioned card that I really struggled with as it was for someone who works with antiques.  I hunted through my stash and had nothing antique so had to improvise a bit.  I had these little stamp sets and stamped on Kraft card then distressing by chalk to try and make it look old.  The picture makes it look a lot lighter than it actually is.  The challenges covered are:-

Diamonds and Pearls

Good evening everybody, hope all is well in the cypher world of Blogland.  Apologises for being a bad blogger of late, not really had a chance to play, but fingers crossed I am hoping for a craft day on Saturday.

This is a commissioned card for one of the girls from work, I think it is for her nephew and the picture is of the future bride's beautiful diamond ring.  If you haven't already guessed, I love doing these double easel cards.  My scalloped square Nesties are just the right size for the front bases.  Other Nesties sed are a labels set and the oval smooth and scalloped.  I have embellished this card with clear gems, pearls, ribbon and a pearl buckle which I have had in my craft stash for yonks and yonks and yonks.  The challenges covered are:-
