Creative Inspirations, Petals and Pearls Challenge

Rush rush rush.....
Aw sorry guys, I'm so late today with my challenge post...
(slaps self on the wrist)
better late than never though aye?
Our challenge is one of my favorites this fortnight, Petals and Pearls.
check out the amazing cards created by my team mates, they are all so pretty.
I tried to keep my card clean and simple, mainly because I had a new Apple Blossom die set I wanted to play with. Its the Floral Frame set from and I love it!
I used a photo of my son and daughter-in-law behind an acetate window. I love this picture of them together.
I cut the die out of the card blank and then put it back over the acetate and add some pearls. Its the perfect anniversary card for them.
I hope you will join us at creative inspirations this fortnight and share your petals and pearls creations.
our sponsor this time is

I look forward to visiting your blogs and leaving some comments.
If you can find the time to leave me a comment to let me know you were here that would be great.
thank you!

creative inspirations anything goes.

hi crafty friends,
its challenge day at creative inspirations today and our theme is an all time favorite with everyone, its 'Anything Goes'
our sponsor is bugaboo which is one of my favorite digi sites, I love their cute and images.
I chose these funny little dogs and grouped them together.
his face is makes me smile, cheeky little fellow.
It kinda hurts me too because as some of you already know I lost my beloved dog this week. We are all so heart broken so if I don't get round to leaving comments on your entries this fortnight I hope you will understand why. I just don't feel like doing anything at the moment, not even crafting.
I miss my cuddles.
 R.I.P. Tia, you gave us so much love and taught us the meaning of loyalty.
you have left a huge hole in our family and in our hearts.

Cute Critters

All you have to do is share your cute critters with us.
this was the perfect chance for me to use my new bugaboo digi

I used the bare minimum colouring but I love how he turned out.
I added a red diecut frame and the sentiment is from lawnfawn.

Anything goes handmade card challenge. and other creations!

hello crafty friends,
how are you all doing after the Christmas holidays?
are you all stuffed with lovely food and enjoying your family visits?
I do hope so but now its time to celebrate the end of 2016 and the start of 2017
(I do hope it's a better year)
I hope you can find some craft time over the next fortnight and come and join us for the last challenge of 2016 at creative inspirations.
we have a sketch for you to follow but you don't have to use it.
I decided not to follow the sketch this time because I was desperate to try my new art deco frame die.
I love it!

I cut the frame into the card and popped acetate behind it and used my copics to colour the stained glass window.
I'll make a tutorial if anyone is interested.
I then put a tealight candle inside the card. don't worry, its battery operated so it start a fire.
this gorgeous die will soon be available from
if you haven't checked out their offers yet, you are missing out!
get over there and find some bargains.
I hope you will find the time to join us at creative inspirations.
lets all say goodbye to 2016 by playing along in the same challenge.
happy new year everyone.
hugs Suzanne xx
