DT Post for whoopsi daisy: Shabby chic/vintage

Morning lovelies - wow - wasn't that a wonderful weekend! Brilliant weather here - had a fabulous day at the zoo yesterday - really lovely.

Over at whoopsi daisy (cutedaisymay) today there's a new challenge starting - we want to see your vintage or shabby chic creations. Here's what I did using an image from sheet 447 that you can get here.


The papers I've had for a while - the same with the lace. The ribbon was from the pretty little ribbon shop and the blingy stone from chloes. The image has been coloured with promarkers and fussy cut.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

IDICrobynsfetishchallengeblog: Use a digi
OSAATonestitchatatimechallenge: AG
Glitternsparkleglitternsparklechallengeblog: B for Bling, bow, brown.
Allsorts CBallsortschallenge: Here come the girls
Pin and tackpinandtack: AG
Charisma cardscharismacardz: Diva
Fab'n' funkyfabnfunkychallenges: for the girls
Crafts and mecraftsandmechallenges: shabby chic


Hope you all have a wonderful day - running for me this morning - then I'll be getting stuff ready for rainbows, catching up with blogs then back off to taking the girls to ballet. We're getting matchboxes in from the kids at school today and counting how many different items they've put in them. Its a sponsored thing to raise funds for the PTA. Myself and the other mums at ballet have been landed the job of counting the contents!!!! That should be interesting!

Thanks for dropping by and I'll try and return as many visits as possible!!!

Big Hugs and see you again soon.
