May God Bless You & Keep You.

Good afternoon everyone :)
I hope you have all had a fantastic week.

I haven't been up to much, just still looking for a new house for us to live in.  Hopefully something will turn up soon :)  Whilst waiting for that to happen, I may as well keep on craftin' my designs :)

Win Win Win :)

You can find out all about it & enter here.

I'd like to introduce you to Praying Boy.  Isn't he cute?  He is one of Wendy's (Louby Lou) NEW Release images at Digital Delights which is where you can find him.  There are many more images in the new release so be sure to go & have a look :)

My little Praying Boy is helping me with my next challenge on the Delightful Challenges Design Team.
This week the challenge is:  Punches & Dies.

We are very lucky to have The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor this week.

So grab your creative mojo hat and start punching & using your diecuts so that you can be in the chance of winning 2 sets from The Cutting Cafe!  You've got to be in it to win it, right?   :)

Check out the details of the Punches & Dies Delightful Challenge here.
Good luck to you :)

Here is my latest design.  I hope you like it :)

I finally got my parcel from Wild Orchid Crafts the other day (just in time for this design) & I had a wonderful time using some of the many new flowers I got :)

I also used Digital Delights Prayer Sentiment set which you can find here.
I also added some Glossy Accents to the button on the back of the little guys pj's.

For those of you who have been following my blog would know that I have been making it my mission to ensure I use supplies from my 'Oldies Stash'.   
You would probably be amazed with how much of my stash has been totally neglected throughout the years.  It's amazing! ...and sad really lol.
So here is what I have used from the Oldies Stash on this design.

* 7 Eyelets (got hundreds left)
*  Buckeye Cardstock (nearly all gone)
*  5 Brads
*  2 Buttons (got thousands left lol)
*  2 Jump rings
So far so good :)

(Click here to get email updates so that you don't miss out on my new designs). 

I am also going to enter this design into another challenge where I could only use specific colour Copics.  So I chose to use BG93, BG96 & R59.  Not only did I use them to colour my little Prayer Boy image, but I also coloured the pearls with my BG96 & R59 Copics.  They look pretty good don't you think?

This is my first time using Seam Binding Ribbon which is also new :)
I ordered about four different colours so I'm sure you will be seeing them all pretty soon lol.

I also used my new Martha Stewart Branch punch, Lace Edger punch & my Die-namics Fancy Flourish.

Stitching with my sewing machine wasn't all that fun lol  I still have a very long way to go in regards to perfection lol.

I love my Colorbox Cats Eye Fluid Chalk Ink which I most definately have to get more colours of.

I used my Heart punch for the inside of the design & placed the two buttons on top of each heart & then placed my R59 Copic coloured pearl on top of that :)  The hearts are popped up to add more dimension.

So that's my design for this week :)  I can't wait to see yours over at Delightful Challenges.
