Crafts Galore Encore January Challenge DT Post

So, it's a new year and time for a fresh new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore and this month our kind sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I chose to work with Isabelle Hat Lady for my project. I just love her stylish elegance- don't you? 

I gave my card a suitably vintage feel by distressing the lovely floral papers from my stash and adding some  pretty embellishments and ribbon. The sentiment is from a free set that came with Craft Stamper magazine a year or so ago. 

Do pop across and join us if you can. The theme is Anything Goes so a nice easy one to kick start the year.

I hope 2017 is a good one for you all!



Crafts Galore Encore December Challenge DT Post

I have some exciting news to share. As of now I am a design team member on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog!! I have been following the blog and entering challenges on it for a while now, so I was thrilled when Denyse approached me and asked me if I would like to join the team. I have had the pleasure of crafting with her in person at a couple of workshops in Kent , and never realised she managed the blog. Small world!!

So, this is my fist official DT post and I am pleased to showcase my work using images by this month's sponsor Sherri Baldy. I hope you like them and they have inspired you to enter this month's challenge. The theme is Anything Goes, so get creating and share with us here for a chance to win.

The digi I chose for my first creation can be found here. She's such a cutie! I teamed her up with some vintage papers from my stash, a die cut snowflake and a hand made flower.
