PBSC - Stitch It Up!

Good Morning!
I am so glad to be back again this Saturday after missing my past 2 cards for PBSC. So without further ado here is what I have for you today! This week's Challenge at PBSC is Stitch It Up! I haven't got around to buying myself a sewing machine yet so I had to do a little bit of faux around the edges of my backing paper.
I didn't think this card needed any flower embellishments so just added a few extra Dew Drops, i think it worked :)

PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - HERE COMES THE SUN
CUPCAKE CRAFT - SKETCH



RECIPE:
PB Stamp
Sentiment by Cat's Life Press
Basic Grey Paper

Just A Heads Up!

Good Morning!
Apologies for being missing AGAIN last weekend, I honestly don't know where all the time has gone and I just simply didn't have the time to make any cards.
However, I just thought I'd let you know that this week over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE are celebrating their 3rd Birthday!!!
Like I mentioned before I didn't manage to get a card done this week for the Challenge but I do hope you will still pop by over there as there are some lovely creations from the rest of my teamie's and even some prizes up for grabs!

Hope you have a good day and I will definitely be back tomorrow with 2 cards to share with you all. Happy Crafting!

Im Back!

Good Evening!
I am so sorry I have been missing since last wednesday's I have been having various Laptop problems and been super busy but don't worry I am back now :) I thought that as an apology I would share some piccies of parts of my crafty space as I have had a bit of a shuffle around!

Here is a little part of my workspace, as you can see I love my Flowers! lol


My various Shimmer Sprays, Paints, punches and Handmade Calendar I made for myself last year are kept on these shelves.


Lastly a quick peek of one of the shelves where I have a Tilda Picture Frame & Purple Tilda Card I made myself along with 3 lovely creations from crafters I have been sent.


Well that's all for today, Don't forget to pop by tomorrow!
Happy Crafting!
