As it's the beginning of another month it's time for the August Birthstone Challenge over at Daring Cardmakers and joining the lovely girls at DCM this month as Guest Designer is...the one and only Julia the lady who has taken the bloggy world by storm with her fabulous WOYWW....pop over on Wednesday...see what it's all about and join in the fun....it's become another of my addictions....well being a bit of a nosey mare I can't resist having a rummage around in everyone else's crafty space
is the national gem of Egypt and the ancient egyptians called it "the gem of the sun"
associated with love, truth, faithfulness and loyalty...fame, dignity and protection
Background stamped with Hero Arts... Dots and Flowers in TH Distress...Brushed Corduroy
Sizzix Frame Back Ornate stamped with Hero Arts... Heartfelt Messages in Versamark and embossed with Detail White.....then coloured with TH Distress Peeled Paint
Stem Image: Hero Arts...Scattered Leaves
Pearls: Hobby House
Sentiment: Hero Arts...Thinking of You
and of course after die cutting the frame I am left with the negative....can't throw it away so perhaps I can sneak in a little play with this pad of gorgeous gorgeous papers that just jumped right into my basket at Simply Create ....I did protest but to no avail....it was coming home with me regardless
but the long list of things to do isn't going to get any shorter if I sit here much longer...so after our morning stroll it is definitely a nose to the grindstone kind of a day and tonight I must sit down and try and visit all my lovely bloggy buddies and catch up with all their gorgeous creations......and do you know what's going right at the top of my Christmas Wish List......more time please.
Catch up with you all later.
