Paper Blooms Challenge

Well I managed to make another card for the Paper Blooms challenge. I love this sketch - it was really easy to use. I love sketches especially ones like this where you can make a card in no time. I've used some more MME papers. These ones are from the colourful christmas range. I love them they are so bright and cheerful. I used my nesties label, round and square dies. Good old nesties!! I cut out a tag for the greeting with my tag punch. I love this punch too it is so useful.I tried this raffia lace and ordinary lace but the raffia lace seemed to work best. Again I used a cute little House Mouse image. I edged the image and the tag with red Promarker. I finished off by adding blue buttons and jewels from my stash. This also fits the House Mouse challenge as I'v added the buttons.

This is just another view of the card. I usually try different angles at night to see if any of them turns out better. In this case I don't think one is better than the other.

I also need to tell you about this lovely award I've been given by Fiona.

Thank you so much Fiona for choosing me as one of the five people you are passing it on to.

Here are the rules:- you have to give away 5 things about yourself and then pass it on to 5 lovely people. So here are 5 things about me!

1 I have always crafted since I was a little girl and learned to knit at school and have probably tried most things since then.
2 I have lived on a farm for most of my life until my husband saw sense!!
3 I am going to be a granny for the 2nd time soon.
4 I live in Aberdeenshire but I was born in Stirling.
5 I love science programmes.

I would like to pass on this award to 5 lovely people :-

1 Angela

2 Clare

3 Lisa

4 Liza

5 Vicky

Enjoy your awards girls you deserve them!
