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!

A Brand New Challenge is Born at Scribble & Scrap

Hey Everyone! I have some extremely EXCITING NEWS to share with you all on this beautiful, sunny, Sunday morning!  I'm a very proud designer for Scribble & Scrap - a brand new, shiny challenge debuting today!! Woohoo!!

I was invited by the very gorgeous and extremely funny, Lexie, to join her in her brand new venture and, of course, I jumped at the chance! I am joined by an amazing DT who are all so very talented and an absolute joy to work with - but I'm not going to spill the beans .... you'll have to head on over to the challenge to find out who they are!! ;)

We'd love for you to take a look at Lexie's new online SHOP where you will find the most beautiful vintage digital images as well as some fabulous digital toppers and card kits.  You will also find Lexie's very first drawing of the adorable 'Scribble'.

For my first creation with these fabulous images, I chose to use this gorgeous Vintage Steampunk Bath Chair

I adore vintage/shabby chic and absolutely love distressing, inking and frantaging (if that's even a word) - so these images are just so perfect to work with.  

My card ingredients are as follows:

Bath Chair Image - Scribble & Scrap Shop
Maja Design Papers, Frantage, Cheesecloth - Live & Love Crafts
Roses, Pearl Flourish and Pearl String - The Hobby House
Pearl Brad, Spiral Stamens (which I used Frantage on) and Filigree Corners - Wild Orchid Crafts
I also used a doily die and Tim Holtz gears and added the all important Frantage to all :)

Well, I hope you like my card today and would love for you all to join me in Congratulating Lexie on her brand new challenge and shop and wish her the very best in her amazing, new adventure - and, of course, to head on over to the CHALLENGE to find out who's joining me on this fabulous journey and to enter your ANTHING GOES creations whilst you're there!
