Allsorts Blue and Brown challenge

gardeners twine
glamour dust
hearts cut on my cricut
snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder
blue bling!!

The challenge over on allsorts challenge blog for the next 2 weeks is Blue and Brown. I love blue and brown and one of my favourite Funky Hand downloads has blue and brown in such a perfect mix that I just had to use that to make chrimble cards for all my friends at work.
I am also popping it in the cupcake craft challenge blogs--dont look at light challenge .

I printed out 2 of the papers from my download. The texted paper is brown with blue and black merry christmas written all over it and I love it! the paper on the heart is brown with a snowflake design on it, I embossed the hearts with my cuttlebug snowflakes folder just to add a bit of umpf!!

I added a sprinkling of glamour dust around the edges of my merry chrsitmas paper and then adhered it to my card. The twine around the centre is just gardeners twine from the garden centre. its quite a thick one because I like to 'fluff' the ends of my knots a bit!!!(...he he he! makes them all frayed and fuzzy like me!!!!!!)

I popped the finished hearts out on foam and added a little blue blingy gem to the top corner of them. These cards are so cute because they are just tiddly 3x3 size!

Right off to get on with some notebooks Little Mo has requested for his 2 friends at school for their birthday on tuesday. He is trying to get himself brave enough to go to the party so please keep your fingers crossed for him that he manages it as he gets so nervous about parties bless him!!

Thankyou for popping in on me!
huge sunday hugs Lou xxxx
