Bad Bitsy

Good morning.  Monday morning and I am back at work after a lovely long Christmas break.  I will admit, although I love my job, I am not looking forward to this morning as I will have three weeks to catch up on.  Oh well soon be Tuesday and my day off - LOL.

We have a lovely new challenge starting at Crafting from the Heart.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

Rick St Dennis

You know when you are looking at digi stamps and one just jumps out at you?  Well the digi stamp I have used from Rick St Dennis did just that it 'jumped' out at me but when I got it I hadn't a clue what I was going to do with it other than colour it in using my copic markers.

The digi stamp is called Bad Bitsy and she just made me smile when I saw her.

I eventually found myself a layout and then I was watching Julia Watts on Hochanda demoing the weaving dies, now I happen to have one of those - the classic one -  and I hadn't a clue what to do with it and hadn't played with it until then.

My layout just developed from there and I so enjoyed 'weaving'.  I have used a basic weave and I do agree with Julia these are not quick cards but very enjoyable to make and given I can spend all afternoon making a card it wouldn't bother me.

The other dies I have used are also from Sue Wilson - the lattice frames and the leaves plus the tags.  My flower is stamped from a stamp by Chloes Creative Cards and WOW powder - Rose Mint.  The sentiment is from my stamp stash using a grey ink.

Thanks for visiting today.  Why not follow the link HERE to our blog where you can enter your own project - the theme is 'Always Anything Goes' and also see some more designs from our sponsor used by our design team.

We also have a facebook page too.

I have entered this card into the following challenge: -
