Lace/Ribbon & Bling

Goooooooooooooood morning everyone

Well it's a beautiful morning here in sunny Forster, hoping though it doesn't get too hot today as we have a few things to do in the garden if my hubby is feeling up to it. He was hoping to return to work last night but unfortunately his cold flared up again so back to bed with more cold/flu tablets, hopefully he'll be returning on Tuesday arvo. I'm so thankful that I haven't been struck down with it as I really don't want it or even have the time to get sick.

So here we are it's that time again over at A & T Emerald Faeries and this month we have a real girly challenge, Lace/Ribbon & Bling, now who doesn't love using all of these products either on a card or a scrapbook layout.

We also have some wonderful news for you, drum roll please ................................................ we have another two new images to welcome to the FAERIES family and they are.



Now aren't they just another two gorgeous stamps, I had so much fun colouring these guys and making the cards and I can't wait to put them to good use again and again and again.

We've also had to wonderful ladies join us this month as Guest Designers and they have done some beautiful work, make sure you head on over to their blogs and have a look after stopping by and entering the challenge, they are Jenny D & Julie Price.

So now onto my two cards, this month I've actually kept my cards a little simple as I left making them until two nights before the blog went live and then had to take photo's and edit them the night before after work. The results though I'm really happy with and I have used some amazing flowers by a lady who used to be one of our DT members Lucinda.

Firstly here is Jewel
