Inspirational Post at Bearly Mine Designs

Hello my fellow crafters

I do apologise that this post is coming a day later, however I didn't see my girlfriend until lunch time today and I was doing everything possible for her not to see it online before she actually got the real thing.

As you've probably all seen by now we've had some very sad news here at Bearly Mine Designs that Donna has had to make a terrible decision to close down the store due to new VAT laws coming in on the 1st January 2015.

So here is my second last inspirational post and as promised I did something besides a card.

My BFF's birthday was coming up so I decided to have a look into an explosion card and boy was this a lot of fun to make.

 
 
 
 
 
I have used papers from the Mixed Media 2 range both on the outside and the inside, I just love this set of digital pattern papers.
 
 
 
So back to the sad note on closing down, for your benefit Donna is having a closing down sale commencing today so why don't come along a grab yourself a bargin while you can as after the 31 December 2014 they will no longer be available EVER.
 
 
 

The products I've used in this creation are
 
Bearly Mine Designs digital pp's
American Craft cs
WOC & I Am Roses flowers
Cremen Creations stamens, ribbon & charm
Stampin Up ink, die & sentiment stamp
Marianne Desings, My Favourite Things & Quick Kutz dies
Robins Nest dew drops
 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
 
A Crafty Mess - Anything Goes
 
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes & GDT
 
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes

So that's me for this month, make sure you head on over to look at all the inspirational post next month as they will be final one for each of the Design Team members.

 
Happy Crafting

So I think that will do it for me tonight, better get those hands and needles going, just don't know how I'm going to manage as it's been 36 degrees here today and a storm is looming but whether we get anything from it is to been seen.

Have a great week everyone and I'm looking forward to seeing all your amazing creations as always.
