Well, it's back to work today after having a couple of days off. It has been nice having a couple of extra days at home to catch up on a few jobs. I could quite easily get used to working only 3 days a week.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges. Our theme for this week is
We have two sponsors for this challenge:
Lily of the Valley - prize of a £10 gift voucher to the winner
Digi My World - prize of a $10 voucher to the winner
I used an image from Lily of the Valley for my inspiration project. This is actually a precoloured topper from one of their pads. These pads are brilliant as it means you always have a lovely image to work with even if you haven't got the time to colour. I cut the image out with one of my dies and I did add some sparkly stickles around the edge of the die cut - although it is not very clear in the photo. The papers were freebies in a magazine. For embellishments I simply added a ribbon, some flowers with pearls and a sentiment.
Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries. For more inspiration and to enter the challenge just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.
