My Inspiration
Well yesterday was the start of the April challenge over at Crafty bloggers Network. Firstly can I just say a big congratulations to the winners. The entries are all wonderful and it is so hard to choose winners as they are all so gorgeous.
This months challenge is dies and embossing so why not enter on of your makes . The sonsor this month is Rick St Dennis and you have the chance to win some digi images.
For my inspiration this month I embossed a piece of white card with a creative expressions embossing folder and then distressed it with shaded lilac. I then downloaded the digi image into my docrafts programme and sized it to fit a 6x6 card. ( The finished card is a 7x7) I then coloured with pro markers and wink of stellas. My fav product of the moment. Unfortunately you cant see the sparkle on the photo but they really do wink.
I finished off by distressing the edges and mounting onto the embossed card and adding some flowers from my stash. Have to own up at these ones were not made by me. lolx I couldnt resist adding the little ladybird at the end. I have had these embellishment in my stash for so long and cant bear to use them in case I run out. I know we all do it. Stupid isnt it. lol.x Well I must go as I have a spring fayre to do some makes for at the weekend and have very little made so will be burning the midnight oil me thinks.x

This months creation
Last months creation

Happy sunday to all of my followers and visitors. Hope you have all had as good a weekend as I have. Saturday started it off with a workshop in Sedgield with the lovely Annette Lee. This is a monthly event that I really look forward to. Annette comes up with some gorgeous projects and I have met some lovely crafty buddies there. The first project was done useing mainly Paper Artsy products from there mount board down to there stamps and paints.  Everyone was really quiet during this one as they were concentrating so much. it was really funny as one lady shouted out cannon balls just to see if everyone was awake. My second project was done last month and I very rudely forgot to blog it!!!!!  How could I. It was a canvas made useing all different techniques and again useing some Paper Artsy stamps, inks and stencil. There products are a joy to play with. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed makeing them. Today turned out to be lovely and sunny and warm ( If a little windy) so I went with hubby to the beach and met my daughter, son in law, niece and her husband and two boys. We had a lovely walk along the promenade to the river and back having chips on the way and finishing it of in Minchellas ice cream parlour. What more could you ask for? Well I am meeting my friend to go to bingo tonight so a nice win would be good. lolx Hope you all had a good weekend  and are keeeping well.
