To You From Us

Good Morning everyone. Are you ready for another Pixie Cottage Challenge? I loved the sketch and theme for this weeks challenge and has a lot of fun making my card. The sketch was a dream to use and the them this week is 'Furry Friends. Remember that you can use one, the other or both of those to enter the challenge.

I suppose I had more fun making this card because at long last I'm able to 'cheat' again. Yes, my new sewing machine arrived so no more stitching by hand (for a while at least). I can't believe how quiet my new machine is; the old one used to clatter and rattle like crazy! It'll take me a while to work up to using some of the fancy stitches so I'll stick with plain and zigzag for now.

I'm entering this week's card into the following challenges:

A pocket Full of Posies - Floral Fantasy
A spoonfull of sugar - Animal Crackers
Cowgirl Sunday Challenge - Anything Goes
Frosted Designs - Photo Challenge (colours used, pink, blue, green, brown and flowers inspiration)
Gingerloft - Anything Goes
Paperplay Challenge - In Stitches
Paper Romance - Furry Friends
Stamp Something - Something Cute
Stampin' for the weekend - Shabby or Vintage
Twisted Thursday - Animals

Items used:
Pixie Cottage Stamp: To you from us by Di Carubia
Papers: Papermania, Rose Garden
Handmade papers
Flowers: Prima e-line and prima fancies
Prima e-line pearls
Walnut Stain distress ink
Stickles - stardust

Don't forget, the Pixie Cottage DT call is still running!!!

Please take a look at the fab creations by the rest of the DT and I hope you'll be able to join in the challenge.

Thanks for looking,
