First thing I did was cut the card and acetate to size,
Then covered the card with some of the Black star SM
let it dry then got the bird cage stencil and used the versa mark through it
and dusted it with the Mica powders 
Then I took Acetate and stencilled the bride on to it,
let it dry then add some of the cages and branches

Mid month Inspiration


Morning all my wonderful friends and followers

Hope everyone is doing well 

I thought I would share some of the good things going on in my
Life at the moment.
As some of you may know I went to sewing and water color class
done by a local charity called Ascend, 
Since losing my BFF I have been a bit lost and one of my daughters 
said to join a crochet group which sounded fun so I did 
and have so much fun and laughter.
I new a few of the ladies as we all live in the area
one of them is the head of Ascend and she asked me if I fancy teaching 
crocheting for some of her ladies.
I said Yes, as Ascend have been good to me.
and its great to give back,
And as I am still waiting for good weather so we can order this god damn work top 
so hubby can sort the offices out. Which is driving me mad I need my crafting to de stress
LOL.
******
Now on to my wonderful DT project
we are halfway through july realy it has gone so quick,

I have made a card for you a simple one as I am loving
 all the simple cards I have seen all over blogland lately.

 ******


Shopping list 

Grungy look backing card is also from 
8x8 White card 
flat back perils  
ribbon




Dont forget its anything goes and there is £40 for the winner 
if you use IC items.
*****
This card was an 8x8 I cut it down to a 6.5x6.5 
Then took the heart stencil and only doing the edges of the card
Covered it with the sparkle medium and left to dry.
Then I used the ledger stencil and using the pink again covered the grunge card
left them both to dry.
once dry I hot glued the grungy card to the white one,
then added some perils from my stash and the beaded drop is also from my stash,
I added a small bow. a very easy card and fab results.
*****
Hope you all like the card and please go enter the challenge.


Well thats all from me for a bit.
Thank you all for your wonderful words
