Book worm

Hello you all . Thank you for calling in and welcome to my craft room where I am sharing my DT card for the anything goes challenge from TTCRD ,

Thanks to the Admin team for producing another fine anything goes challenge .
Thanks to the DT who share awesome mini works of art to give you inspiration .
Thanks also to the most generous sponsor for the support and images for DT to work with .



This beautiful image given to me by the generous sponsor is coloured with various  SU markers .
This sentiment came to mind instantly I chose this image called Book Worm because I believe that much is gained by reading .The words are from a retired SU stamp set .

 Once again I was thrilled and so impressed with all the entries that I visited and I hope all were encouraged  and enthused by the words that I left in comment box .

That is all from me today but I do look forward to seeing the next  amazing creations of those who enter .

Tulips on show

Hello to all those who have called in here and welcome to my room . I do hope that you enjoy your visit and will consider it worth your time .
Thank you to past commentators  . I will always endeavor  to repay the visits in appreciation .

Quite enjoy browsing on line again and blogging . Not as regular as I would like but being a full time carer my time has to be prioritized of course . Having just been diagnosed with  Type Two diabetes, I am trying to lose wt. AGAIN!! The best time I find not to be nibbling is when I am card making or blogging . So here I am . 

 Today I am showing a card made for entering a challenge [ link below ] .

A Perfect Time To Craft Challenge for March, #3 - 2020 


Soft Suede card base , Pink Pirquette layer which was embossed with Stone 3D embossing folder .
Topper tag die cut with Stitched Nested Labels Die which was then edged in Soft Suede , while the sentiment was added in same ink .The tulips are from SU Timeless Tulips stamp set with a coordinating punch used for the largest tulip.

 I am not one for embellishing so as usual have not added any bling , preferring to let the topper take centre place . 

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
