Kirsty ....

Dear Kirsty ....
A few minutes ago I received your package ... all the way from Las Vegas ... 



The most beautiful embellishments ... brads, amazing trimmings, alphabets, crochet flowers and chipboard crowns ... ribbons in pink and brown ... Maya Road journal tags ...

Scrapbook papers ... All my favourites .. Melissa Frances ... 
and beautiful Websters pages image and phrase stickers ...


... And the most beautiful handmade tag ...
with handwritten words that mean so much ...


How do I thank you? Not just for the most beautiful, delightful gifts that I absolutely adore ... 
but for being a friend? 
 In my wildest dreams I could never have imagined that a little lady I have never met and lives thousands of miles away ... would be the catalyst that changed my life ... 
Today as I sit here I am a totally different person from the one I was this time last year ... 
I have confidence ... I have purpose ... I have the most amazing blog friends all over the world.
Joining the DT of City Crafters was the best thing I ever did and I am so grateful to you and the DT past and present for believing in me and making me believe in myself
"Thank You" ...
... the words somehow seem inadequate ... but they comes from my heart ...

City Crafters Vintage Christmas

Hello from a very cold and icy UK ... how are you all? 
Today at City Crafter Challenge we have Kirsty hosting for us ... our last challenge before Christmas ... can you believe it?? and she has taken us to the beautiful city of Apsen in Colorado for a Vintage Christmas ... (make a card or project with a Vintage feel) .. We have the very talented Cassandra of Cassi's Creations as our sponsor and the equally talented Ula Kazmierowska  as our Guest Designer (please have a look at her creations ... they are truly stunning!)...
Now you all know that I have been a fan of Cassi's Creations for a long time and have bought quite a few things from her that you have seen on my cards and projects ... this week we all got a freebie to use which you can see on CCCB... another beautiful soft digital picture ... this is my creation ...



These digital files are so lovely to use ... you can make them any size and you get to use them over and over again .... I paired mine with a digital background that I did on my computer a couple of years ago and some lovely MME paper


I added some glitter to the little girl's coat and just dotted some on the scroll work
Some ribbon and berries and a cute bell which I also dipped in glitter


I made the lace flower and this pretty centrepiece is in fact an earring that I cut the back off and glued to the centre of the lace flower ...
Whenever I see earrings and trinkets going cheap, I buy them to use in crafting ... 
Please do take a look at all the beautiful creations on City Crafter this week ... both the DT and our GD have done amazing work with this beautiful image ... and Cassi's Creations has the most fabulous prize on offer ... I am so jealous!! If you are wary of digital ... don't be ... just give it a try and you can even use the image we did!
I am so looking forward to seeing what you come up with ... I love a vintage Christmas ... 
Have yourselves a lovely day,

Till soon
