Frame It!

It feels like I haven't blogged for ages & it has been quite a while for me BUT there is a very good reason we've had our son, (soon to be) DIL & 3 wonderful grandchildren staying with us :o)  I've also not been able to do much commenting (I do miss visiting all your fab blogs & getting lots of inspiration) but I am trying to catch up now (easier said than done but I AM trying lol).  

On to the card which was made for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge which is "Frame It" & we are sponsored by the wonderful Pink Cat Studio.  I love their digis & the one I chose to use is called "Lily Bee", as Zoe (DIL) was staying I used some of her Copics (we didn't get chance to do much crafting & I only coloured about half the image with them) & finished off (later) with my ProMarkers.  I used Glamour Dust on her wings & the frame is made using Marianne dies (I think, I've had them a long while & think I should use them more as they are pretty).  The papers are from my stash & I did a bit of machine stitching.  I finished the card with ribbons, half a doily, flowers, fence border punch, greeting & some gems.  

The challenges:
Delightful - Stitching
Card Makin Mamas - Getting Girly 
Totally Papercrafts - Things with Wings
Crafty Ribbon - Things with Wings
PaperPlay - Things with Wings
Crafts & Me - 3D Embellishments
My Mum's Craft Shop - Celebration
Digital Tuesday - Birthdays
Sassy Cheryl's - Anything Goes

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter & managed to fit some crafting in (unlike me lol).  Enjoy the rest of the weekend:)

It's a bugger when 'real life' gets in the way of our crafting! Sounds like you've been uber-busy & you must live in a huge mansion accomodating all these people. Lovely card, like that little picket fence. x
