Scrap Card!

 

I can't believe how busy this morning has been and as usual, sadly not with craft. Running around for perscriptions etc. However, I found a wonderful thing in a charity shop today. A bedding box on wheels solid wood (no sign of veneer he he;0) and in excellent condition with hinged lid, I have wanted one for years but never been able to find one at a price I could afford. So I am happy I went out today after all! I may also do the shabby chic thing to it and if I can get enough motivation a cusion for the top. I have three large peices of solid wood furniture all to be altered, Just need a few nice days and me and my hubby (braun of the two lol) can get cracking.The weather has taken a turn for the worst here in NW of UK sleet rain well it will be the Easter break so rain had to be on the menu :0(

On to a card! I have seen some love DT examples on a few challenge blogs and I had to make something I was so inspired. Over at The Shabby Tea Room There is a photo for inspiration and a theme of  'Let's get scrappy' I chose to make a quilt from all my scraps, using a lot of scaps lately (this is a really good thing) and they go great with the colour combo over at The Play Date Cafe not by accident I might say lol It's a super colour combo.


Here is a close up of one of my Magnolia images that's been sent to me, coloured with copics, soesn't she look cute. Now my stiching has a lot to be desired, I am so out of practice but  I thought for this card I really wanted to give it ago and so you see the resylts here. 


I cut my scraps with a puch then put them through the cuttlebug, three different EF so there would be texture. stuck them to some card then through the machine with some yummy gold thread. Coloured and cut round the Magnolia then some sponge stickies to lift her and a tore a tag to bits to get the sentiment & button ;0) I also used some more of the same scraps to make the actual card and the flowers So truly a scrap card lol. 


It's you last chance to day to enter my fabby blogaversary candy as it finishes today I will draw a winner tommorow so pop back if you entered to see if the yummy goodies are on the way to you. Thank you for following, stopping by and most of all taking time to comment. Love Dawn xx
