Champagne Garden

Good morning folks.

Hope you are all well today?

Last day of June and I am still wondering when our summer will begin.  

Looking forward to Saturday when I will be going to the NEC for a new craft show with my mate Wendy.  Some major retail craft therapy.  Apparently this is a new show and if I am honest Wendy and I were not going to attend but I was lucky enough to receive some complimentary tickets so it would be rude not to use them - hee hee.

I will let you know how it went - the show I mean, the day with me mate will go brilliantly, always does.

We start a new challenge at Crafty Girls Creations today.

Our theme is  
Always Anything Goes.

My craft room is still packed away so I have been playing again in Serif Craft Artist.

The digi kit I have used is from Louise Tiller and it is called 'Champagne Garden'.

If you want to see more samples from our design team please follow the link HERE to the challenge and so you can enter your own projects.

Thank you for visiting today and I do hope to see you again soon.

Take Care.

Natalie is 40

Good morning fellow crafters.

We start a new challenge at Crafty Girlz Challenge today.

Our theme is the usual 'Always Anything Goes'.

It was a free week for the design team this week.

My craft room is almost packed up ready for the electrician to start his rewiring so my post today was actually made for a fellow slimming worlder - Keefy.  It was a friend of his named Natalie and yes it was forher 40th birthday.

I chose to use the lovely shoe stamp from Chloe Creative Cards which I stamped and embossed in a red embossing powder several times on to cream card then the red polka dots paper and also the plain red co'ordinating paper.

The papers were from a digi kit within serif craft artist and I don't know which one because I just entered red and picked two.

I have also glittered the heel of the shoes.
The sentiment was designed in serif, coloured in serif and printed out.

For the flower buckle I have used parchment and a flower die from Dreamees which I embossed using a wow embossing powder finished off with a couple of pearls.

Thank you for visiting today and I do hope to see you again soon.
