Saturated Canary challenge 12- Doilies...


Afternoon Peeps!!

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


Now I have to admit to letting out a small whimper of help when I saw this one! lol !!! I don't have any doily dies ( ..but would love some!!) so I had a small panic! then I remembered about the goodness that is the poundshop and popped in to get a pack of cake doilies!!! yey go me!!! I think I got 30 for £1 so bargain!!! I chose the middle sized doily, this is a big 8x8 card.

I printed out and coloured up the awesome Secrets image from Krista's shop. I love, love , love this cute pair. It actually reminds me of me and my big sis (...I of course would be the crazy excited one on the right!!!) and I used a circle nestie to cut it out. 

I distress inked my bargain doily with some Frayed burlap DI and then stuck it onto my card base. The papers on my card base were some free HOTP papers and I absoloutely love them ( will have to get them!!!) The brown velvet adhesive ribbon is MME and I just stiched some pink thread onto it.

I used a little SU sentiment and my lurvely big shot to make a flower for it to hang off. I added a button to the flower centre because I love buttons!!! :)

Here's my little chicks having a good old natter!!!

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers for my mum. her spinal surgery actually took 3 hours instead of the 2 they thought it would take and last night she was in so much pain that she was on an hourly morphine syringe dose. I am at work today but will be waiting for updates from my dad as he will be with her later this morning. The hospital she is in is 34 miles away so he came home last night and will be driving back this morning. Its crazy they don't do spinal surgery in our hospital here in Lincoln :(

Right, then I had better go and see what my other awesomely talented teamies have been making for their doily creations for the challenge...come peek with me...come on lets go, HERE  :)

Thank you for popping in on me
