1st Dt post for DCD blog,

Hi peeps, over at Die Cut Dreams we have a new challenge for you and it's to use gingham on your creations, I first thought of baby things but then couldn't get strawberry jam out of my head lol so this is what I've done,
Challenges, WOC~ Lace,   One stop craft~ Patterns,   Creative Inspirations~ Anything goes,   Cute card Thursdat~ Text,   The Pink Elephant~ Something Yummy,

I've used a Magnolia Tilda, cut her out, cut out another pinny added lace underneath and stuck the pinny on top, the rather pale strawberries under the lace on the left were made using shrinkles but as you can see my colour needed to be stronger lol, the recipe is printed on my computer and edged with Distress ink, cut out with a nestie and layered onto a piece of red cardstock, the other paper is Magnolia,

I also decided to use a jar of jam for my project too, and the same lace  has been used, I made a wrap out of the Magnolia strawberry paper, layered a smaller nestie on top and added another Tilda image,

 Jim's back at work today so after a lot of catching up to do I will hopefully be back on here to see if there are any more challenges I can enter,

It actually hasn't rained today so we went out and just happened to end up at a craft shop, well a girls got to do what a girls got to do hasn't she lol,

I'm off now to bring my washing in haven't been able to that for over three weeks, how small things make me happy lol,

See you soon,

Hi, Liz. These creations are adorable! I like red and I'm a real fan of gingham, maybe I could give this challenge a try, even if more busy than usually. My mother ( 85 years old ) will be with us for a couple of weeks and I'll have to look after her a bit ... and ironing stuff is piling on! Hugs. Miria

Oh this is a darling set. The coloring of dear Tilda is fabulous! Great card and embellies. Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Inspirations for this fortnight challenge.


Fabulous DT projects Liz - absolutely love them. The colours are gorgeous, and the 3-d pinny with the added lace is a brilliant idea. Had a little chuckle at your unexpected visit to the craft shop - sounds familiar!
