Hello lovely people! I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. I know I certainly am as I'm off to France tonight for a little weekend away. Here's to lots of chilled out mooching around, yummy food and plenty of wine - without one of us being on lemonade because we have to drive! Anyway, enough of my waffle. Let me show you what you came for.... Some crafty inspiration!

I had a ridiculous amount of fun with this card and I'm so chuffed/stunned that the bling I added to the sentiment came out in the picture - first time I've ever managed that!

I went for a real scrappy feel on my card, just like my biggest stamping idols do. I'm not sure I executed it with the level of precision that they do, but I think it is definitely passable! I particularly adore this amazing Crate Paper collection, just the most beautiful designs and colour palette. Yum!

I applied the bling to the sentiment in a slightly different way and I think this will be my method of choice from now on. I squirted a little Stickles on a piece of scrap and then used a paint brush to paint on the sparkles. It gave a must thinned, less gloppy look which I much prefer. A useful tip ith Christmas just around the corner. 

Anyway, must dash, I have a ferry to catch!

Oh dear...

I was about to launch in to some serious crafting. However think I might need to do some serious tidying first. Boo hiss.

Redonkulous DT Day #11

Hello lovely people! Not satisfied taking part in the Redonkulous blog hop (BTW, you still have time to take part, just check out the post below this one!), I'm back with yet another Redonkulous creation :o)

Those of you who regularly check out my blog will know that I am very much a square card, bold character image kinda gal.... well, this one is a little bit different. Not only have I gone floral, the central focus of my card is actually a sentiment. In addition to that, I made a stepper card to mount it all on.

And from the side view...

I just love this sentiment as this is exactly the relationship I have with my lovely Mum. Sheryl has done such a fantastic job in embellishing the heart with all those vines and leaves too. She's a fab artist :o)

For those of you who also love this image, there is good news.... there are a whole host of other versions available with alternative sentiments in the shop! Make sure you visit Redonkulous to check them out!
Thanks for stopping by!
