Paint The Town Red


My card today is for meeeee… I have been asked by Laura from Crafty Angels to be on her Design Team… how excited am I…. so decided to make myself a card to celebrate… better than painting the town red. Nothing fussy, didn’t even colour the image in.

Used my new and absolutely adorable stamp from Whiff of Joy, have bought the one where she is holding all the shopping bags as well.

Entering into a few challenges ….

Lots To Do Challenge – Use a Machine

Only posted yesterday so it just fitted into last weeks challenge by a whisker and woo hoo it fits this weeks challenge…. Keep it Simple.

Stamped her with black ink and thought she looked totally divine without colouring in so I only paper pieced her dress and shoes. Cut out with a nestie label and inked the edges. Did a running stitch around the edges and added beads, also added gems to her wrists, dazzle or what..

Made a pocket with the lace by stitching (trusty machine again) around three sides so the tag can be tucked into it. The corners are made with some very pretty pattern paper from Pink Petticoat, cut out with the small Fleur De Lis nestie and cut in half. Stamped and embossed the sentiment celebrate. Made a bow and added to the flower with a button.

By the way did I tell you I am excited.

    I’ve read several just right stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much attempt you place to create this sort of fantastic informative web site.

    If adult comedy is what entertains you then there are plenty
    of these as well. All you have to do is select the movie from the Camera Roll and adjust the slider.
    Video as you have it can serve a number of purposes and video editing may compromise this.
