CYDA #33 Embellishment Bingo

Awww I'm in for a busy day today.  Gotta get Ethan to his best friends birthday party, he's off paint balling - he's sure gonna love that, and will be absolutely BUZZING by this afternoon lol.  Whilst he's partying, I gotta get Emily to a football game.  She joined a girls soccer team and totally LOVES it.  She's very competitive and sporty and today is a cup match so if her team don't win - oooooh it don't bear thinking about!

Today we have a new challenge for you over at Craft Your Days Away.  This fortnights challenge is hosted by my lovely teamie and SIL Crafting Joanne.

She has come up with the awesome theme of....


Wow, what a selection, fabulous range of embellies to choose from!  Our DT girlies have come up with some awesome designs for this one and you can check them out HERE.  This is what I came up with.........

Called "Hello Little Friend", this is one of several new stamps available from Sugar Nellie and you can see her HERE.  This card is outta me comfort zone a little as its so rare for me to use so many flowers and I NEVER use pins!!  I love the colour combi using some stray papers I didn't want to waste.  In the end I went for the top layer of the bingo card - LACE, PEARLS AND PINS.  I'm quite chuffed with how it turned out.  I hope you like it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm off to wrap up warm now ready for Emily's game.  Enjoy your weekend.
