Focus on the Sentiment

Good morning to you all! For those of us in the UK and USA I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend! The weather has been beautiful here in Blackpool for the last two days but I think we have rain forecast today - no surprise there then!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and for this challenge we want to see you Focus on the Sentiment!  Here is my card:


Quite hard to take a decent photo with all that pearlescent paper! I have used Lexi's Lifetime Sentiment which is available at Fairydust Crafts, Lexi does some really nice sentiments its worth having a look at them!  I changed the colour in Word and printed it out on pearl paper which I then cut out with SB Romantic Rectangles.  I have used Pink Petticoat Damask printed onto Linen card for the background paper.  I embossed some Centura Pearl card with a Cuttlebug EF.  The card blank is a Craftwork Cards one.  The spacer I bought on EBay, pearl brad is from Wild Orchid crafts and ribbon and pearls from my stash.

We are sponsored this week by


Please go over to Lexi's Creations Challenge to see what the rest of the DT have done!  You have almost two weeks to enter.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Tie it Up
Moving Along with the Times - Embossing
Fab 'n Funky - Ribbon/Lace
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Say it Loud (Sentiment only)

Yesterday I achieved absolutely zilch! All day all that I did was move some embellishments around on a card and just couldn't decide on a layout! I am hoping Mr Mojo will play ball with me today and I can get a bit more accomplished!  Have a fabulous day whatever you are doing, thanks so much for looking! Take care xx
