Feather card and some exciting news!

Hello friends, I have been very busy lately,
but now it's time to tell you more. Look below my
 card for details ;)  I  also made another quick card
for this week's 'Less is More' challenge.


It's a recipe this time and 'Thread', hope you
like it. More 'LIM' this one I think!
I used a touch of perfect pearls on the feather
to add a touch of glimmer too ;)

Ok so now to my very exciting news!!! I
have been asked by the lovely Aileen
to join her Design team. She is starting
a brand new challenge blog all about using
Flowers.


I started off just helping her with a new header
for it etc. Then I got more and more involved and
when she asked me to join her team I just
couldn't say no!


I adore using flowers and I am sure the  challenge
 blog will be a big hit. I have been asked to join a few
challenges but always turned them down until
now. I have a feeling this one will be special ;)
 

It starts on the 4th October, so go check it out to
see what it's all about. (Link Below) I do hope you will
all join in and I think you will be blown away
by the cards the DT have made when you see
 them all ;)

Luckily I had just bought this yummy Spider's
 web type stuff......well it looks very thread like
 to me lol.
 
 
I went with an underwater theme as it looked like
 waves etc. to me.  Hope it's LIM enough? 
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.

I am late commenting this week. This has taken
 up ALL my time lately.....so many burnt meals too
my poor OH!!!


Anyway here is a sneek peek at a card,
more details very soon ;)






My OH's lovely fairy castle is finished at
 last! here are a few quick photo's. My main camera's battery ran out,
so had to use little camera. May post better ones when I can.








We have visitors for a week too and
our son is moving house at last! They lost the
 one they were moving to, she withdrew at the
 last minute! So they will rent for a while, if
they can find somewhere quickly.

Enjoy your week ;)

Diamonds card

Hi friends, yes it's Saturday again and of course
I have another card to share with you today!
Back to two of my favourite colours again
 blue and purple....and a touch of silver
 this time too ;)
 
It's been 30c for the last few days here, I even 
saw 31c at one stage! Cooler and rain today but
 easier to sleep at night I hope now.
 
 I mention this  as I tried a spot of watercolouring
 and it all went  horribly wrong much to my horror.
My OH said it was probably the heat and the card/inks
reacting badly........hmmm I was still worried 
friends!!!! Panic station time even!!!

Anyway much to my relief I tried it again today
as it's cooler......much cooler and YES all was back 
to normal again. Can't say how relieved I was as
I do LOVE to watercolour !


Now I am wondering how all my crafty friends 
manage if they live in hotter climes.........any
 answers ? maybe you all have air conditioning 
though?


Right....... sorry enough of my rambling again,
come and have a quick peek at my card.
Enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)


ps. My OH's fairy house is almost complete,
I am SOOOO excited, photo soon ;)
Also our son is due to move house next week
and it's all going slow down the chain...it may
 not happen now ;(
