Summer time!

Hello well it has finally arrived Summertime is here and this is our Delicious Doodles Challenge theme for this week.
I made this card for the challenge using two delicious doodles images. Virgo who reminded me of a girl in a prom dress and Cross and Roses. I used this image to make a tattoo as I am not making the card for a Virgo. The beauty of digi's xxx

I printed onto centura pearl and I coloured with pro markers. I used some DCWV papers and a ribbon. The flowers at the bottom are dies.

All about the Scenary

Hello I am sorry I am a bit late posting my Delicious Doodles creation today. I have been busy at a school outing. We went to the woods today. I am exhausted lots of fun had by all though. I then had to drop my eldest daughter at a church trip and have only just returned.
My card is based on our new Challenge theme All about The Scenary. I used Sunset At Sea which I coloured with Distress inks I added some fine glitter to the sea. I then used Spell binders to create a frame and matt for the image an anchor die and some twine and sentiment.

Challenges entered are:

Just add ink - just Add Water

Very Excited today to announce...

Hi there I am so excited to announce that I have been asked by the very lovely and talented Marcea to be on the DT for the new and fresh Beading Friends Forever Challenge . I have always loved beading and could not miss an opportunity so of course I said YES straight away.
Today sees the start of our challenge for July. We have two different challenges for you to enter. You can enter both parts or just one part. Check out all the rules over at the challenge.

As always we are sponsored by the wonderful Beads Direct. Who are offering the winner a £15.00 voucher to spend in store.

The theme this month is to make a beaded flower. There are lots of tutorials and patterns out there. I chose to follow this tutorial for the Lady Vera Pendant by Off the Beaded Path.

I made my flower into a brooch.

The Tutorial that has been chosen for July is from Beading For Perfectionists: Herringbone stitch basics with a twist

I have kept my bracelet all one shade of plum. I used 4mm cube beads and 8/0 seed beads to make this  rather than the sizes recommended in the tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
