Afternoon Peeps!!!

Its time for a new challenge over on the Saturated Canary Challenge blog and this week its all about..


Now, no giggling allowed but I am very behind the times and have not yet managed to buy myself any bakers twine...I don't know why!! I see it and I love it but I haven't actually treated myself to any yet!! I am soooooo slow!!!

So for my DT make I turned to my trusty gardeners jute twine!!! yup! here it is in all its finery......
I have had this ball of twine for over a year now! I use it tonnes and it is still going strong!! OK so I don't use it on the plants where I am supposed to and its probably not made with cardmaking/scrapbooking in mind but it makes such a cute addition to cards and I have a thing for natural stuff!!

Anywhoo, I printed out Krista's gorgeous Love Letters image because this card is for a friend to give to her mum for her birthday and I thought Love Letters was just perfect.
I coloured her up with my promarkers and then got out what is left of my gorgeous HOTP Nostalgia papers freebie ( I am so going to have to buy these papers because I just love, love, love them!!)

I carefully snipped around the flower and stitching on the topper shape and slid my little chick under it! I really like how that came out because it looks so pretty and like it should be there. I added a few flowers and a little pearly heart charm to the top right corner to balance it all out a bit and hey presto it was done.

I am entering a couple of challenges with this one...(though I will be linkying them in when I get home from work as this is a little scheduled post!!)

Cute Card Thursdays- birthday/celebration

Don't forget to pop into the Saturated Canary challenge blog to drool over the rest of the gorgeous DT makes (....yup, I have to stroke the screen every time its a new challenge just to see if their awesome talents can rub off on me a bit!!!) I love poppping in and seeing what you all make.
Oh and start saving those pennies because there are some super cute new SC images on their way soon!!
Thank you for popping in on me :)
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
