I have been MIA this week from my blog as I have needed to spend time with my DIL, Susan, setting up a page on facebook to promote Martin's work and linking it to our website, www.hillsidecrafts.co.uk I have also been preparing lots of photos of new products which Martin has been working on. These will hopefully go on this week, just keep checking the website if you are interested in our products. Sincere thanks to all who have done so.
Todays card is very similar to one I made last week; an easel card using one of Michelle Perkett's gorgeous images (how much do I love these!!) The difference being this one is for Mother's Day which was celebrated in USA & Canada yesterday, and it's Pink!!
Papers are from Be Blessed
Card is Bazzill bling
Pearls in 2 sizes from the Hobby house
Stardust stickles for the wings and middle of flowers
Coloured using Promarkers and shimmer chalks
I manages to do some paper piercing on the dress, it showed up far more once I added the chalks. I needed to use an extra fine needle as I found the holes too big otherwise.
Did you notice the sentiment... I used what was left over from the fancy frames tag by spellbinders. I liked it and thought it was far too nice to throw away!!
I would like to enter this card into a couple of challenges if I am able to do the linking thing properly!!!
Michelle Perkett-( Mother's Day challenge)
The Pink Elephant- (Mother's Day)
Raise the bar
Creative craft world challenge 5 (easel cards)
Crafts and me challenge 3 (sparkle)
Dare to digistamp challenge 37 (anything goes)
Many thanks for taking the time to read this, and if you leave a comment- even more thanks!!
