Something old, Something new

The challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week is to interpret the Wedding Rhyme
"Something old"
something new,
something borrowed
and something blue"
So my something old is my swirls cuttlebug folder, something new my little silver gems, something blue my paper. I couldn't manage the something borrowed.
This card is also for Secret Crafter where the challenge this week is embossing.
Alphabet Challenge - H is for Half a dozen of something. I have six flowers the same. 
Hope you all have a good week and enjoy the sunshine whilst it lasts.

Pesky Critters

Pesky critters is the challenge this week over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge who are celebrating their 3rd Birthday this week.Which means we get to choose from all those
gorgeous hedgehogs..mice..cats..dogs..cows....sheep the Penny Black have. I just love these cute little critters.
Must dash the parrot is calling and I don't want him flying down the hall to find me like last week when he over shot the room I am in and ended up in the bathroom, just a few inches from the toilet where hubby had forgotten to shut the bathroom door. The perils of living in a bungalow and having a parrot.

W is for Wedding

Oh what a rainy day here in Essex, but we really need the rain and it's a great excuse to stay indoors and do some crafting.
The ABC challenge this week is W for Wedding.
I was asked to keep the card fairly simple so opted to add lots of glitter around the edges of the image and card to make it  sparkle and used my rosebud cuttlebug embossing folder.
Image is from Lili of the valley.
