Big Sister

I have been really busy recently. Family visiting, children moving houses, over 50 Christmas cards made. I suppose it's about time I concentrated on doing the housework. Hmmm...Nah! I'd rather make some more cards any day. ;o)

This is my DT card for the Pixie Cottage where I've used the fab sketch and the theme of 'Family'. It's one of the first 8" x 8" cards I've made and I really like this bigger size. I've made this card for my two grandchildren to give to their big half-sister when it is her birthday in November.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

Papertake - Just the one - one huge flower embellishment
Pollycraft - Add some nature to your card - The background stamp
Allsorts - Park inspiration - the background stamp
One Stitch at a time - Girly - the colours and the main image
Oh Alice - Little Girl Theme
Paper Cutz - use some type of metal - the charm
Bee Crafty - Anything Goes

Items Used:

Pixie Cottage Stamps Cassie and the Bench & Stump
Prima 4 seasons Velvet Leaves (Olive) - Pink and Lavender are still in stock
Prima Belle Fleur Daisy
Prima e-line pink pearls
Mark Richards white pearls
Coloured with ProMarkers
Papers: Do Crafts

Don't forget that the Pixie Cottage is running a DT call at the moment. And lots of the stamps are reduced in the store at the moment.

Please take a look at the amazing makes that the rest of the Pixie DT have created this week.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
