Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Borders & Flowers

Ooooooh yippedy-yip for the weekend. How I love it so :~) Especially as we have another fab challenge at Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge. This week it's lovely Janet's turn to chose or theme. She has gone for

BORDERS & FLOWERS


I had to take a break from Xmas cards this week as it's my gorgeous sister's birthday next week & I'd been saving this SCACD image for her, as it's almost as beautiful as she is. She's coloured with Distress Inks & the papers are one of my faves, Memory Box - Gossamer. The border die is a Doo Hickey & the flower is by Spellbinders.

I kept this relatively simple as I think she's such an elegant image I did not want to detract from her too much. With that in mind, the flower is perhaps, a little big. Too late now though. My layout is based on the fab sketch at Quixotic Paperie this month.

At Bearly Mine the challenge is 'My Favourite Things'. As I got this image with my sister in mind as it reminds me of her elegance, I am using her as 'my favourite thing'. As I said, the papers are amongst my faves too.

So I hope you'll now hop on over to the Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge blog to see the fantastic inspiration of my fellow D-Teamies. It's also the last challenge of the month so also therefore your last chance of entering & being in with a chance of winning a fab prize of 5 gorgeous digis from The Stamping Boutique.


So that's all from me for today. We're off visiting my Uncle in Leicester today. I haven't seen him for ages & he hasn't seen the boys for years. So it will be interesting to see what they make of each other. I've had to warn Jack that my Uncle is not into football at all. I'm not sure Jack will know of anything else to talk about. He's such a football bore, LOL!!

I hope everyone has something fun to look forward to this weekend. Only 4 weeks till Xmas!! Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
