A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

The Hobby House Ch #2 - Vintage

The start of our second challenge at The Hobby House has arrived and for this month we're going VINTAGE.

The prize for this month's winner is a whopping 
£25 Hobby House voucher
(postage paid by winner)

You have until the 31st July to place your entry and your creation still does not need to use any of the HH products, however, the Top 3 will be selected, if possible, from those containing HH products.

For my card this time I had a rummage through my Mum's old photos and couldn't resist this little cutie ....... it is, in fact, a pic of my Mum at the tender age of 7 months!  

I thought it was perfect to go with the vintage theme ..... not that I'm saying she's vintage or anything lol :)

I decided to do a little bit of  hand stitching for my card this time ..... I bought a sewing machine last year for this purpose, but, would you believe, it's still sat collecting dust as I couldn't be bothered to drag it out! Hmmm, there must've been a method in my madness ..... just not sure what it was!!

My backing paper, cheesecloth and frantage are all from LLC

Pearl Strings
Adhesive Pearl Flourish
Mulberry Paper Roses
Flat Backed Pearls
Clock Charm
Heart Pins
Fancy Button

I'd like to enter my vintage creation into the following:

A.R.T. Card Challenge #4 - Color Combo
