About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Vintage !

Good morning, hope everyone is keeping warm as it certainly has gone chilly so much so I have dug out my big fluffy dressing gown and warm slippers. But I do love this time of year ! Anyway enough of me going on. Its tuesday so its challenge 11 over at fan-tastic tuesday.
Theme is vintage ( loved this ).
This week we are sponsored by Lacy sunshine and I got to work with Lizabeth Gatsby ! 

 I printed onto watercolour card and used distress inks & water-brush to colour her in. Added lace, flowers and a piece of Anna Griffin paper. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by, I have a day off today and myself my 2 eldest bridesmaids are going shopping and lunch but more importantly the dresses have arrived for them to try on ! The first time I will see them in them in right colour and size etc ! The wedding is less than 7 months away. Eeeeek !
Take care xx
