Just a little add on, one that I have posted over at dusty attic this took me a good couple of days to get right played with the colours a few times

Taking my time

Well some things take time, if only I could spend most of my days leisurely crafting but its slotted in between work and the every day things we have to do called life, I would like to say house work but not much of that has happened in the last two weeks. I made a decision craft until I cant keep my eyes open, so I went to bed the wee hours this morning.
Why you say? next Sunday we have a Card making and Scrapbooking Fair on at Marion Leisure Centre and I have been making display items I love these Fairs.
My card is for this weeks challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Shabby Chic, lots of white unfortunately mine does not look as white as I would have liked cause I just had to stamp a lot of pink on it cause I am addicted to my B Line stamps 

I would also like to enter this in Just Magnolia Challenge Bingo mine is Embossing (the corset), Ribbon and Lace, Paper Piercing (the corset ribbon)

A Page

okay for something a little different
I created a page for a challenge over at Dusty Attic which will be a regular place that I visit from now on, as I love their product Tilda's card with the embossed corners are the same as I have used on this page ornate corner 7
so here is my take on it

I used my Stampin Up inks and aqua painter to colour in the flowers I find I like them the best on some occasions because I am able to match all the stamped images, which again I have used B Line stamps.
the pattern paper is Tea Party from the Garden of blue Flowers go on and  check it all out from the links on the side bar
