Hello - oh it's so lovely to be able to resume normal service!! Thanks everyone for letting me know that I was back in the land of the living!!
Onto my card for today and I've managed to combine my two DT challenges for today into one card . At CES challenges we want your card to be inspired by your favourite song, and at Basic Grey we want to see something recycled.
I so love the Teddy Bo cards that I've been seeing in blogland which meant of course that I had to have a few to love and colour up and this is my first card with one of these fab digis!!
I've chosen Teddy Bear by Elvis as my inspiration - when I was younger, much younger(!), I used to love watching his films on a Saturday afternoon, they seem so corny now but he was lovely!! I also followed the sketch over on the Teddy Bo challenge so will be entering my card there.
For my Basic Grey item, I've used some Sugared Element Stickers - the heart strip and the hearts ( I forgot I had these!) and my recyled bits are the strip of corrugated card which is cut from a Starbucks coffee cup holder, and the buttons, which I've had an age, are from old clothes - I love tins of old buttons!!! The pink lace is vintage too but unused before - not recycled from any thing like my granny's draws, yewhhhh!!
I've also used Prima Madeline papers, the circle doiley, flower petals and card candi, as well as my promarkers, all available at Crafty Emma's store here. The rest of the bits are from my stash.
For Crafty Emma's challenge, you could be lucky enough to win this Sugar and Spice decoupage kit
Off for a bit of retail therapy with my girls this morning, the sun is shining and it's the weekend!! Have a fab one!
