A while back I recieved the sweetest email from a treasured friend in blogland, wonderful Ingrid. She told me it was her turn to set the theme for one of the challenges over at A spoon full of sugar in july. In addition to this she also got to pick someone she´d like be her guest. And..she asked me! Thank you so much Ingrid! It means so much to me, it´s a huge honor ♥
If you feel like joining you just have to make a project that features SEWING / STITCHING.
Ingrid is far from alone as a dt, the other ladies are also very talanted, please head on over to the challengeblog to take a look and getting inspired by all of their lovely work. Thank´s for having me, ladies :)
Now onto my own project :) This is a very special card for me, it´s really close to my heart. I made it with tones of love ;) It for my hubby. We are celebrating 10 years as a couple and 5 years as a married couple on august 12th. I wanted to use some of the stamps from my all time favorite Magnolia stamp release, the Wedding collection. When hubby saw Tilda with veil last year he said she looks adorable ;) That she and I had a certain resemblance. I´m not sure I agree, if there is its not very big ;) This is me on our weddingday:
As you can see here I have always had a thing for pink ;)
Not a striking resemblance ha? ;) But if hubby thinks so I´ll agree ;) He can have Tilda with veil. I think I made this just as much to myself since it´s supposed to be in our home. Not a card that strikes you as very masculine but I´m sure he´ll treasure it. The dp is from a paper pad called 5th avenue by Melissa Frances. The sentiment is one of my favourites by Tickled Pink stamps. It is so beautiful.
I have managed to fit lot´s of things I prefer working with on there. And loads of sewed detail. :)
So hurry to your craft space and get creative with needle and thread :)
I´m also entering this card in the current challenge over at the TOMIC blog which is easel cards. Even if you´re not planning on joining in you still have to go check it out because the DT has made some truly gorgoues cards! :) Beautiful beyond words!
Over with the very talanted ladies at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar challengeblog they are arranging a real easy one right now, namely anything goes. In addition to that you can also choose to add a shabby chic feeling to your card, I think I managed that one as well? ;) He, he,he! Beautiful work by the dt here as well.
The same goes for the ladies in the dt at another Magnolia challenge called Totally Tilda whom has inspired me to take part in their distressing challange. Suits me just fine since I distress like everything ;)
Thank you so much for checking in with me today!
I´d love it if you told me what you think :)
