Giving thanks …



Evening all, a quick post from me tonight, it’s been a hectic week that’s flown by in a flash and I have a busy weekend ahead

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my white card, I thought I was happy with it and then when I saw the work from the rest of the fabulous DT the doubts started creeping in, I’m so pleased that you all liked it and really appreciate you taking the time to let me know your thoughts


Onto this weeks challenge at Papertake weekly and the new theme is…

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is the 28th so we want you to make a card or project for that this week please, or you can just make something that says 'thank you'.

There’s a voucher up for grabs for the lucky winner, and it’s £10 to spend on some gorgeousness from The Ribbon Girl

Here’s my ‘thank you’ card

I used one of the images from the new Lili of the Valley ‘cute cottage garden’ art pad, I love this pad, it’s so pretty



PTW 34 - Thanksgiving



I used Bonnets and Bowties papers and the sentiment is from Vintage Labels Occasions, both Lili of the Valley

I dug out 2 of my favourite dies which sadly haven’t seen the light of day for a while, a fab Doohickey stitched border and the LaLa Land flag banner

Finally it’s finished with a bit of scrumptious cotton lace trim from The Ribbon  Girl and of course,as always, some stickles


PS. The little random blue flower at the bottom isn’t supposed to be there lol! I couldn’t understand how I came to forget to put a brad in the centre of it when I looked at the picture and then thought I don’t remember putting a flower there. There were a few on my desk and I think it sneaked on while I was moving things around to take the picture!!


Hope you like it, have a fantastic weekend everyone
