CAS Love and a Giveaway...

A new challenge launches today over on Let's Craft and Create.  This time our theme is CAS Love.  
We'd like you to share your clean and simple (CAS) projects with the theme of love...valentine, wedding, anniversary, with love, all my love etc.  There's some fabulous projects from the design team over on the blog.  Plus the prize is a beautiful set of Clearly Besotted stamps.


For my card I've crocheted some tiny hearts and tied them to a crocheted chain.  The pattern to make the hearts is HERE and is really simple if you're a crocheter, you just need to remember that the pattern uses US terminology. I've tried a few different patterns for hearts but found this one is just the perfect size for cards.


For anyone who would like some ready made hearts, I've got these to giveaway   Just leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a name out of the hat and announce the winner here on Saturday 26th January. 




Pink and Ivory...



A new challenge launches on The Ribbon Girl Blog today and this month it's a colour challenge.
Pink and Ivory.  
For my card I've used some wood grain paper from MME and created a flower with co-ordinating papers using a circle and heart punch.  Finished off with some gorgeous cluny lace and some saddlestitch ribbon from The Ribbon Girl shop.
Check out the Blog for some amazing creations from the team, the fabulous prizes on offer and details of a new Magnolia Challenge launching soon. 


I'm entering my card in the Luscious Lace challenge over on In The Pink.  It's a lovely new challenge blog for pink lovers everywhere!

Scallop Edge Cards...


Remember them?  I found a pack of unused square scallop edge card blanks in the depths of my craft cupboard.  It took me back to my early days of card making, they were all the rage and I thought they were state of the art.  Now there's all manner of different shapes to tempt us.  
As these were the only cream card blanks I could find and to make them work for this design I trimmed the edge off the square to make them standard a6.  Now I kind of like scallop edges again and they work so well with this pretty stamp set.
