Good evening my dear blog friends... I hope you have had a wonderful Saturday... isn't it nice to enjoy yet another weekend, where you get to spend it with the people you love, as well as just relaxing and chilling out... I LOVE the weekends as it gives me the opportunity to catch up with some crafting too...
I am showcasing the gorgeous little Tilda with Bike, purchased from 7 Kids College Fund. I think she is from the Summer Days collection. I am entering this card into the Buttons & Bling challenge over at the Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge blog... Yet another place to showcase our beautiful Maggies...
The base of my card is white. I used the gorgeous button patterned paper from my W&M collection, which was layered onto a powdered blue card. I then chose a contrasting striped paper for the inlay on the left and decorated that with some gorgeous lilac ribbon. Onto that I fixed some various shaped buttons. In the corners I used what is left over of the last blingy brads in my stash. That's as 'bling' as you'll get with me, I'm afraid!! I found them far too big for our delicate cards and am so pleased to see the last of them go... I really am a 'pearly' girl....LOL Just LOVE my pearls!!!
Not sure if the dimension glaze I've used on some bits and pieces will be classified as bling...LOL Thought it would be nice to make these items 'pop' a bit! Tilda was coloured in with Copics.
Well, that's it for now folks... my one and only card for the weekend... I leave to attend a work Conference tomorrow afternoon, so there is still lots to be done. Will get back home on Tuesday evening. Note, I won't have my laptop with me, so am unable to browse or leave comments at the Teddy Stampers challenge blog, should you have entered our challenge. Will catch up later in the week.
Important notice re SPAM emails: It appears that a 'spammer' is using my email address to send emails to my email contacts. I was alerted to this by a blogfriend in the USA. The message this time was innocent enough, but it could have been something of a sexual or worse content and I would just like to emphasise that should you receive any spam-related email, it is definitely not from me personally ! Note: I do have the necessary virus-protection software on my laptop, so my laptop is virus-free.
Right... now I have some ironing to get to (yuck!)... It is 8.00pm and is still soooo darn HOT!!! The rest of our country seem to be enjoying lovely weather, whilst we're having friggin' heatwaves!!!!
Take care until we meet again later on in the week, hugs Sharon x
