My Lovely Friends,

Sunday, 23 June 2013


Hi guys, sorry I've not been round to you yet, I've felt really tired these last few days and had Tegan too, but thanks so much for your visits and I will be round to you soon,
 we're back today at Addicted to stamps with a fabby challenge for you
Gorgeous Lace,
I love using lace and beautiful embellies so this was  right up my street,

I just couldn't resist using this gorgeous Aliah digi stamp again by Hanna Lynn from crafts and me, I so love her expression and that hair is to die for, she again coloured with my distress re-inkers, I've discovered my old love of distressing my edges again ( why I gave this up I don't know) lol and so have also distressed the edge of the image, love the shabby chic/vintage look this gives,
The pretty lace was from a gift voucher I was sent by the TT girls when I was recovering from my op, it was so lovely to go shopping on line and really gave me something to enjoy, thanks again girls so much,

The fabby papers are from the Prima  Divine paper pad from the lovely Teresa at My Crafty Heart, again I've distressed these with my scissors, the doily die is by Noor and wow I love it, this I cut using Kraft card stock but they look fab cut in white with distress inks added, one of which is coming on my blog soon lol,

I painted the beautiful butterfly with picket fence crackle paint and added a hint of glitter over the top too, the Prima pearl trim for it's tail is again available from MCH,

One of the papers had this gorgeous little butterfly on, which I cut to be on the edge and used another smaller bit of the same trim to finish this one off too,
I've also used another Noor product which is the for you bingo stamp, which I have again stamped onto kraft card stock, cut out then roughed the edges slightly,

 Will check for challenges later,

If any of you guys have any ideas for my photos all help appreciated, I've used a light box and two lamps but my cards always seem dull and boring, when in RL they don't seem to look the same, lol
Edited to add
if you have sent me any e-mails and I haven't replied I think my e-mail thingy is playing up again,
it does sometimes then usually corrects itself, so if you want to send me another please try again or leave me a note on my comments to say you want to goet in touch,
thanks xx

Catch you soon,
hugs Liz xx
