Dancing Springtime Moments

Morning all!

Not long till Santa pops himself down your chimney!!! just over a month to go!!!
This year has gone so unbelievably quick!!! It's that time of month where the supermarket work is HELL!!! (help me!!!) work is soooo busy!!! you'd not seriously believe how many bags of flour, raisans, cranberry sauce and things like that one store sees! Bearing in mind Cranberry sauce jars come in cases of 6, we're lucky if we see 400 cases a week go through the store, that's a lot of cranberry sauce!! (personally i hate the stuff) but i like the juice lol.... anyway...


I've seen so many wonderful christmas projects that my christmas mojo is bursting but i had to sneak a 'normal' project in on my blog!! hehe today's challenge at Charisma is being set by the lovely Alison!!! she's chosen the theme

LACE & PEARLS

Arrrrghhhh i must admit i ran a mile when i first saw this challenge.. pearls i can cope with but i don't do the lacey bit very well... well i think so.. but i'm on a misson to overcome my fears in crafting (theres lots of them believe me!) and also to start using my neglected stamps that have never seen ink! INCLUDING this lovely ballerina tilda! which i've erm had yonks!!!!


I wanted to give my card today an earthy vintagey feel so dug out my old paper distress ink (how did i not use this before?) i love the effects it's given my papers and leaves, my leaves are cut out on my Slice, i keep forgetting about my lil pink machine, naughty girl as hubby spent lots of pennys on it!! haha... opppsie i best use it more! i've even used my liquid pearls something else i forget that i own! (i surely can't be the only crafter who forgets what i have???)

I adore these flowers from wild orchid crafts they're so pretty think i need to place another order hehe!!!

*Through the craftroom door - give thanks
