Sugar & Spice and All Things Nice

Hi everyone!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted for so long, it's a busy period at work and we had my parents over for the Easter weekend, so not much crafty time I'm afraid. But I have a couple of new cards to show you, so I will be posting more often this week I hope! Talking of which, Card Makin' Mamas new challenge starts today, the theme is "MAKE IT GIRLY". That isn't the hardest of challenges is it? I went all out with pink, glitter, butterflies, flowers.......I tried to make it as girly as possible! I also framed the vintage picture with some matt silver mirror board and aged it, so it really looks like an old photo. Well, I think it does anyway :) Come on and join us! We also have a DT call, our DT coordinator Jess is looking for some more crafty talent, so if you fancy it come and apply. She'd love to see your work :)
