Challenge #383 - Lace and Pearls - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well I dont know about you but these weeks are speeding by and we are already half way through May, its not right why cant time slow down, anyway Im expecting my grandson with his wife and two boys this weekend so Im having to write up this blog post a week early, so the weeks theme is

Lace and Pearls

I love using them on my card and I hope you like the design I came up with.
And you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from to. Our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

But don't forget they will only give you the whole amount if you have used one of their images on your card but don't worry if you haven't, they will still give you 3 digi images or your own choice if you are picked as a winner.
And for my own card I chose to use this image


This little lady it called "Sweetheart" and you will find her here. I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out, and a fancy one for the mount out of pink card. The sentiment is one from my stash which has been stamped onto white card before cutting out and layering it onto another piece of the same pink card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card and the backing paper is from the same design set and the image and you will find it here. I then placed on top a circular doily and then wrapped a piece of white lace which I attached to the back of the first mount. The I placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom of the right hand corner.
I then placed some pearl and diamante tape at the bottom and top of my card and down the sides some pearls.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created with this theme "Lace and Pearls" and I hope they will inspire you to take part in this Challenge.

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, can you believe its now the 1st of May where have the last 4 months flown to as before you know it it will be Christmas again, not a thought I wish to enlarge on at the moment, the last 2 months have been very hectic in the Chalmers family as we have a new puppy which is such a lot of hard work believe me, hes like a whirling dervish and is so mischievous and as you can image into everything going.

As you can probably see hes a beautiful looking pup but so naughty against our other dog.
Anyway this is not getting my post done this weeks theme is all about

Im a great lover of Teddy Bears so this image is just right for me its titled "Bear Hugs" and you will find it here. I printed it onto white card before colouring it with my copic pens then afterwards using a square Nestabilitie die to cut it out and used a fancy edged one and pink card for the mount.

The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image and mounted onto a smaller die cut exactly like the one for my image. The mounted image was then placed on top of a heart shaped doily in the center of my cad and the sentiment was put in the bottom right hand corner.

Challenge #373 - Let it be Spring - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, can you believe that in the last week weve had some beautiful Spring Weather and all my snowdrops and crocus have bloomed and it was so warm we were able to turn of the central heating and keep the back door open, and it certainly benefited us with trying to potty train our new pup who is getting us up and a unearthly hour of 5am, not very helpful for us over 70s.
Anyway this weeks theme is one Im sure you will love as it opens lots of doors for your choice of images so it is
