C.R.A.F.T. challenge and GDT card

The Crafty Pad is sponsoring CRAFT challenge this week and they very kindly invited me to do a GDT spot with them - of course I jumped at the chance. :) :) :)

They have a wonderful sketch to work with this week - created by Eileen.  The prize of course is a Crafty Pad stamp - it is the newest release out - Teddies do Piano. It is available in both clear stamp and digi stamp:)

I must say I thoroughly enjoyed working with the sketch and this is what I came up with:-

I have used Teddies do Piano stamp, Papermania papers,
Promarkers to colour image. sticky lace, flowers and charms
from stash.  I did use cappucino alcoholic inks on the charms
to age them slightly. :)
Thanks for looking. :) :) :) :)

Please do pop over to CRAFT and join in with their fab challenge. ;)

Bit of recycling....

I made this wall plaque from a polystyrene pizza base (took inspiration from Suzi's tutorial which is on The Craft Pad).
It is obviously for a little boy - for his new bedroom.
The image is a Digi (available from HERE ) It is called Patch Flying.

I covered the polystyrene base with card stock on both
side to strengthen it.  Paper is DCVW.  Letters cut with spellbinder
dies. Anitias 3D gloss to highlight. Brads and ribbon from stash. :)

Thanks for looking and for you comments -
do so appreciate them so much. :)
