Ooops, A Little Late ~ 'A Gem Of A Challenge'....

Hi all! Long time no blog. Apologies, but we're a very busy house here at the moment. We decided to start decorating several rooms at once, get some new furniture and also have a bit of a move around. Four children create so much clutter and I can't abide it, but on the other hand I'm not very ruthless when it comes to 'getting rid'. So some practical storage solutions are the answer. I hope you all stick with me over the next few weeks as comments and posts will be few and far between I'm afraid. I can't wait until we're all straight and I get stuck in with some serious crafting again.

So onto my (late) DT card for A Gem Of A Challenge.

Lisa has chosen a colour theme this time - Pink, Blue & Green.

Chloe On Swing stamp - Pink Gem Designs,
Floral Oval Nestabilities - Pink Gem Designs,
Melissa Frances Ces't La Vie 6x6 pad (beautiful - love these!),
Martha Steward Large Butterfly Punch,
Martha Stewart Embossed Scalloped Punch,
Leone 'Em Evergreen Punch,
Seam Binding,
Various Flowers,

Hope you'll join us over at A Gem Of A Challenge. Lot's more DT inspiration over there!

Right, back to it!
Thanks for stopping by,

CES Challenges ~ Paper Piece It!...

Hi all. Been one of those days, a few dramas, and my PC mouse is playing up, (ready to throw the damn thing out of the window!) but I'm finally back with my DT card for CES Challenges. 

Teamie Karen want's to see ''PAPER PIECING'' this time.

I've been dying to use this fab image from the 'Dan Collection' over at DigiStamp Boutique for some time, and I think it paper pieces really well! 

Other Ingredients;
Pink Petticoat Papers,
On The Edge Card Blank,
Googly Eyes,
Baker's Twine,
Squiggle Stamps Sentiment Stamp,
Making Memories Clip.

Many items can be purchased from Crafty Emma's Store....but not for much longer (boohoo!) as she's closing down. Lot's of bargains to be had in the meantime though, such as discounted card blanks like the one I've used today. 

Thanks so much for popping by today. I'll be back tonight to finally have a catch up with you (mouse permitting!) Then I'm definitely off out shopping tomorrow to buy a new mouse.
