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
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  

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
Love & Hugs
