Today sees the launch of Fussy & Fancy Challenge #114, it is being hosted by the talented Laila who has chosen the theme: Inspirational picture. Our sponsor this time is Freshly Brewed Designs.
Here is my sample for this week's challenge, while I was deciding what to make I received the wonderful news that a friend of mine had just become a Grandmother for the first time. As a Nana to four wonderful almost grown up grandchildren, I know the joy they can bring watching them grow is amazing .... parenthood all over again without the responsibility and the anguish :). So I made her something I thought might be decorative and useful....
I began by creating the background using various distress inks on a blank doorhanger, remembering to put my moon mask in place first.
The stamps I used were free with a crafting magazine they were designed by Tracey of Lavina Stamps. The sentiment stamp and the letter stamps are from Clarity Stamps. Lots of silvery embossing powder and glitter were also used .... it didn't photograph very well .... maybe because most of it landed on our black Labrador Jasper, who insists on lying by my feet when I am crafting. :)
As you can see he is a BIG boy ....but he's very gentle and very handsome.
Anyway back to crafting... I hope you will enter our Challenge it's very easy to upload your entry using the link on http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk I love visiting your blogs and reading all about your crafty projects, you can also link through email, details are on our website.
That's all for today, I have just looked at the clock and realised I have just whiled away a whole afternoon up in the Crafty attic ....time flies when you're having fun .....
Bye for now xxx Annie
