Eyelets and string




Eyelets and string is the Fairy Fun Friday theme this week! Well I don't have any eyelets, you know why? because my crop-o-dile and I are enemies!! I just seem to always squish the #$^@ out of those little things. But I decided to be a sport and borrow some from Roberta. Well she spoiled me with eyelets and guess what - squished to crap, so you get snaps....Hahahaha. I couldn't wait to use this Gina Giraffe image which is a new release. She comes with her other half Gerry Giraffe, CUTE!!!!

On another note my son Drake, has asked if he could have a blog to make cards. I doubt he'll really do that many, as he's a sports kinda kid, but I will not discourage him and love that he wants to join in on my passion. So if you'd like to check out his blog it's here.

The sketch for todays card is Friday Sketchers. The paper play challenge is stickers (I use those sparkly flowers), Digital Tuesday Challenge (Paper Pieced Scarf), Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge. And Ginger Snap (Found objects - snaps).

Ooh love it, FAB card! Gorgeous colours. I'm sooo with you on the eyelets/ cropodile thing - I can't set them anywhere near straight and I'm heavy handed with the cropodile! I'm going to finish mine off in the morning because it is DRIVING ME MAD!

Morgan hasn't made a card for a while but he loves having his blog. Whenever I have spare time he doesn't feel like crafting and when he does I'm always super busy! Lisa x
