My Blogging

Welcome to my blog - I hope you like it.

I can't understand why I struggle so much to choose DP for my cards - I have absolutely loads of different colours, textures and sizes all of which I had good reason to buy at the time.  I just don't understand why it is so difficult - does anyone else have this problem or is there a good rule of thumb to go by?  I would love to know.

I have entered this card into the following challenges

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Age is Just a Number (my card for 4 year old!!)
Sketch Saturday
Craft Your Days Away - Tag it
Penny Black Allsorts - Autumn Colours
Secret Crafters - Sparkle

So pleased this won the Sketch Saturday challenge and I won $25 of stamps.

What an unusual and lovely lay out. Beautiful papers and embellishments, they work so well together. I love the lace too and the little pearls on the parcel are a nice finishing touch.
Thank you for joining us at Penny Black at Allsorts and we hope you will join us again next month.

hi lil! this card is gorgeous! i love the pearls on the present; i usually use stickles, but now i'll see if i have pearls in that size - thanks for the inspiration! i struggle with papers too because i colour my images first, but i'm slowly changing my habit to finding papers and then colouring to match. thank you for playing along with the penny black at allsorts october challenge.
