2nd post today ~ All our yesterdays

Hi, 
I'm back again...this time with a card for a couple of challenges I've been working on.
This is another fab stamp by Faye Whittaker 

These are gorgeous Maja papers (bet you thought I was going to say Pion hehe!)
The stamp is called Sunshine of Life
the sentiment which is included is ~ Friends are the sunshine of life
I've distressed the edges, added some TH ink and sewn all the edges
added cheescloth, raffia and a starfish charm
the roses are from WOC and I've added paint to those too. 

Challenges;
2) The Shabby Tearoom #103 ~ Shabby Shutters (include Navy blue, Neutrals and distressed)
3) Top Tip Tuesday #71 ~ Stitching


Thanks again for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.
Love & hugs 

Time for something completely different...


Hiya bloggers,
I wanted to try something different and I love the CR84FUN challenges so I thought I'd leave my images out of this one and this is what I came up with...



It's certainly different for me but I loved making it and I thought the colours were fab, in fact I feel like changing the colour of my kitchen again :o)
See you again soon. 
Love & hugs

All our yesterdays


Good morning
Just a quickie from me this morning
This is All our yesterdays
by Faye Whittaker
I just love using these stamps, this one I've paper pierced the swimsuits to match the beautiful...
....wait for it...yes Pion papers again :o)
These papers are gorgeous, they are double sided and the other side is really beautiful too
it makes it difficult to decide what to use but I felt the stripes go well with this stamp.
