Cottage Friend

Hi everyone – how are you going for Thursday?  I am well, feeling great and looking forward to the weekend.


We have our fortnightly girly get together this Friday where we probably do more talking then crafting but it is a great way to wind down and catch up.


Also I am going to the movies with Mum this weekend to see ‘Water for Elephants’ – a girly flick  and we will catch up with Dad for dinner after the movies.


So speaking of girly things, I have created a card that fits into three current challenges:


The first is the very Girly Challenge from the Friday Mashup Challenge - Ribbons, Pearls and all things Girls – what a beautiful little girl!


The second challenge is from SUO challenges – Flowers for May.  You can visit this site to see this challenge if you click here.


The last challenge is from Paper Players and is a Sketch Challenge # 48:




I have used a colour combo of Melon Mambo, Basic Grey and Old Olive with Very Vanilla, as well as the lovely Vintage Vogue stamp set.


I cannot believe a few months ago I was struggling to think of ways to use this set!  I have used this lovely set so many times lately.


For that extra touch I used some of the Chantilly 1/2” Crochet Trim.





Stamp set: Vintage Vogue

Card: Melon Mambo, Basic Grey, Very Vanilla
Ink: Melon Mambo, Basic Grey, Old Olive

Accessories:  Textured Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders, 1/2” (1.3 cm) Chantilly Crochet Trim, Circle Scissors Plus, Sticky Strip, Rhinestone Brads, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



What do you think ?  Leave me a comment if you get a chance and let me know.


I think the sketch challenge really suited the girly theme.


All the best…. Meg x

Hi Meg,
I think you have created a very prety card here! Love the colours and the embossed panel! Thank you so much for joining us at the Friday Mashup and at the Paper Players. Enjoy the movie with your mom!

Looks like you have a very fun weekend ahead. You are going to Love " Water for Elephants" Did you read the book? I couldn't put it down. I just went to the movies with my Mom the other night and saw "Bridesmaids" I don't think I've laughed that hard at a move in a long time.

Your card came out great.. I really like how you used the Sketch and tied it into our challenge. With the flowers and the bling. The Lace is a great addition.

Hi Meg! Hope you had a good time at the movie. I just started reading the book and have heard really good things about it. Such a pretty card, too. Love the color combo and all of the pretty details. It has a great vintage-feel to it. Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players this week! :)
