Its Friday again, where has the week gone and I am still having trouble leaving messages on other blogs, its seems to be something do with the fact blogger has changed their system and it no longer supports the internet that I use, need to have google chrome I believe. No changed to that because everytime I do mess with my pc something goes wrong and I really find it hard to sort it back out, maybe sometime in the future I will be brave enough to try, we'll see.
Oh well the real reason for being on here, well first let me tell you as I am unable to leave messages for you lovely crafters, what an inspiration you are to me with all your gorgeous designs, it encourages me to keep pushing myself to try harder and make my crafting more exciting.
And this week's challenge for the Crafts and Me Blog I have so enjoyed, will admit though it took me awhile on those embellishments as I could not decide on the colours! I have used white card stock to make the square card, Kaisercraft patterned paper double sided Blushed Passion, Bazzill Basics Bitter Chocolate, Bazzill Basics Mauve Ice, flowers, brads, gem stones, sentiments, card card, cuttlebug, embossing folder Stylised Flowers, Marianne D Swirls die cuts,the lovely rubber stamped image for Crafts and Me called Belle of Bon Adventures that I do so adore coloured with Spectrum Noir pens 132, 133, 142, 104, 100, 96, 196, 175, 74, 14, 109, 137, 147, 88, 0.
I was going to put smaller flowers on this one but everything I tried just looked completely wrong to me, so thats it for me for this week and until next time do take care, have a great weekend and happy crafting, lol
