My Fantastic Followers:)

Saturday, January 8, 2011


I've been really busy this afternoon making cards and creating a few surprises that will be coming in the next few weeks...I really love Bizzy Becs Victorian Sweethearts from the Blue Butterfly Collection.
I have the whole collection as I won a $25.00 voucher a few weeks ago and I actually used them for my blog header (I colored them up and scanned them) but I wanted to use them on card for some challenges. So instead of one I made two cards.

Let me introduce to Charlotte - Gothic Style
On the left of the card you may notice a ghostly image of a young woman, she is actually from the Victorian period and I thought it would nice to incorporate her into my card.
Here are the CHALLENGE SITES for my card:)
BIZZY BECS - recipe (3 flowers-2 buttons- 1 ribbon)
KADOODLE DOODLES - anything goes
FABNFUNKY - anything goes
INKY IMPRESSIONS - ribbon & pearls
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - out with the old
(the buttons are from my late mother-in-law's collection)
LADY BUG CHALLENGES - anything goes
CREATIVE CRAFT WORLD - anything goes
ONE STITCH AT A TIME - anything goes
SCRAPBOOK SISTERS - anything goes
FLUTTERBY WEDNESDAY - things with wings (foiled butterflys)
here I used the colours of the USA although they may not be in the right order
I call this one - AMERICA'S SWEETHEART
And the Challenge sites she will be going into are:
PIXIE COTTAGE - use sketch/& punch (oval and sketch)
SIMONSAYS STAMP - showest your newest stamp (charlotte)
MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES - ring out the old, ring in the new
(new image, new flowers and new ribbon)
CRAZY CHALLENGE - all things new (image, flowers & ribbon)
RAINBOW LADY CHALLENGE - it's all new to me (image)
TELLEN'S PLACE - use one or more punches ( I used only one :)
have a great night everyone
Huggs xxxx Lynn
