We are sailing

Hello and happy Wednesday to you :)

I am here today to show you a card I made for the new challenge over at MMCS challenge which this week is to be inspired by a song.
I was inspired by the song "We are sailing" to make a card a card for my sons 4th birthday.

I have used on of the fabulous decoupage sheets from Jellypark along with some digi papers from the Playdate paper pack by Designs by Danni available at Jessica sprague.

*Top tip* I also used the crayons on the textured die cut waves - I love how it brings out the texture on them and I used the same crayon to colour in the "wishes" on my sentiment to tie it all together.

Here's another pic for a closer look

Don't forget to check out all the other DT inspiration over at MMCS.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

Stampin' sisters in Christ - Create a card for a child (Thanks for the reminder Jerusha of the 2 beautiful, and often utterly frustrating, rewards that I have the joy of every day !!)
Oldie but a goodie challenge - Anything but Christmas (my old stash on here are the waves and the decoupage)
Top tip Tuesday - Kids & teens (see top tip above)
Eureka stamps - For the kids

Thanks for visiting - have a great week and Happy thanksgiving to my friends across the pond x

'Tis the season (nearly !)

Good morning to you and happy Friday :)

Wow when took my son into school today his teacher told us that this weekend the children would be bringing home their lines to learn for the Christmas play most of the mums in the room gasped 
"already !" but the teacher frowned at us and told us that there was only 3 full weeks to learn and practice before the Christmas performance's begin !!
So quite fitting that I have a Christmas card to show you today :)

Today a new challenge has been set for you over at Stampin' for the weekend. This time our theme is
All stitched up
Yes we want to see your projects with real or faux stitching and don't forget to add a little stamping :)

I used my new SU ornament dies and piercing templates to create my card and added my stitching, using silver metallic thread, to the ornaments. I also added some of the thread to my pleated border strip and also on the bow. Lots of gems add to the sparkle too.

I really love the traditional colours and patterns of this card and really enjoyed creating it :)

Don't forget to check out the stampin' for the weekend blog to see all the fantastic inspiration from the DT and get all the details for the challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Craft us crazy - Favourite colour/holiday (I love the traditional Christmas colours)
ABC Christmas challenge - V is for vibrant colours
Whimsy stamps challenge - Use traditional Christmas colours
Clear it out challenge - Anything RED goes ! 

Thanks so much for visiting me today x
