No DT - Just for me :)


I thought I would share this card today ............... just because :) 

I dont very often get time to play just for the fun of it, as I am usually trying to work in advance with DT stuff, but I stumbled upon some old vintage photos I bought years ago from Joanna Sheen and couldnt resist just sitting and having a play.  All the papers and card used on this are from my scraps box, as I quite often just like to see what I can make from bits and bobs that I didnt want to throw away. 

I hand-stitched, distressed and painted scraps of K&Co paper, and it all just kind of fell into place itself after that - lol! :)  The chipboard sentiment is also from ancient stash and I just 'ruffed it up' a bit.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Joanna Sheen Challenge - Love is in the Air
Crafts and Me - Brighten up your day
Bling it On - Love is all around
ABC Challenge - I = In Pairs - 2 pins
Truly Scrumptious - Love & Hearts
Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes
Marianne's Design Divas - In with the new - I used my new Ivy Die by Marianne :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and have a smashing weekend!
