Breakfast at Tiffany's

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all well.  I haven't been around much in the past two weeks as I have been in hospital having a replacement knee fitted, I am not feeling too bad at the moment though I haven't been doing any crafting as I am getting around on my crutches at the moment and can’t keep going upstairs to my craft room.   I did manage to get ahead with a few DT cards before I went in so my card today is for our challenge at My Time to Craft where the theme is:

Inspired by a Film


Image - Kanban topper (I've had for years)
Matching papers from same set
Computer printed film strip and ticket
Ribbon

Hope to see you joining in with our challenge this fortnight and have a good weekend.

My Bicycle

Good Morning Peeps,

A very late Happy New Year to you all, I am sorry I have been missing for a while now but my MIL died over Christmas and there has been so much to see to that crafting and blogging has had to take a back seat for a while.  Hopefully things are now settling down and at last I have had some time to make a card for this fortnight's challenge at My Time to Craft where our theme this time is:

Transport


I decided to use this lovely stamp I bought before Christmas from Crafty Individuals, I coloured with Copics, the flower paper is a free one from Making Cards, the gingham is Crafty Creations I added some ribbon, enamel glitter dots and a sentiment.

I do hope you can join in with us this time and take a look at the great inspiration from the design team.

I am trying to catch up with things now so hopefully will be round to visit you all in the next couple of days, in the meantime have a good weekend.
