Nostalgic and Whimsical


Wahoo check out Let’s Ink It Up they have announced the new Design Team …. a huge congrats to everyone …. pop over to all their blogs and leave lots and lots of hugs they deserve it because they are all such a talented bunch of girls x x x

Lots of changes going on, you have all seen the new blog design, we have a new badge and now there are two teams of designers …. team A and team B …. this all kicks off in March and we are having two challenges a month.

Suzanne and Claire you are two truly amazing ladies for all the hard work you do in maintaining LIIU well done.

Nostalgic, whimsical, cute, she’s all of those and truly reminds me of days gone by, when little girls wore browns and reds, so what better colours to chose for her. Masked her off then stamped, inked and distressed the edges of the tag before colouring. Made the background with the cheapest copy paper, threw on glimmer mists, stamped swirls all over with TH distressing inks and also cut out 4 different flower shapes from the same paper then added a brad. Used a MS punch for the edge of the vellum wrap

Entering for:
By The Cute & Girly – Red is all around us – Use red + one other colour
Papertake Weekly – Anything Goes with flowers for the optional extra
Crafts And Me – Red
