New Bits and Pieces

I had a lovely time at a recent craft show at Five Lakes Hotel in Essex. I went on the Thursday with Red Hat friends and then back on the Saturday with my lovely sis-in-law and my niece. I bought a couple of the new Sue Wilson dies, the Filigree 3D Bow and the Faux Quilled Leaves and I've used both of them on my card today.  I also purchased the Santoro A4 paper pack and one of the papers was perfect to go with this sweet image called Clara Cupcake from Hope Jacare that you can find here in the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. I created this with my beautiful granddaughter, Lacey. in mind as it's her birthday is very soon.

This is also my DT card over on the OSAAT blog this week. our theme this week is Girly and our rules for our challenge are very simple

1. You may enter as many times as you like when using a Stitchy Bear digi stamp to win our top prize this week. But, if you choose to enter without using one of the images from the store then you will be entered into a separate draw for $3 to spend in the store. You may enter the challenge a maximum of three times with a non-Stitchy image.

It's a perfect girly card and I'm sure Lacey will love it. I'm not sure which is the Sue Wilson die - the leaves or the strip across the middle? Whichever one it is, it's beautiful. I've just bought the SW Italian ones. Hazel x

Gorgeous paper, I have to keep looking at it because at a quick glance it looks like a cut out die - awesome. Like Hazel, I don't know which is the new die but both of the ones your have used are awesome. Lovely girly card, Lacey is going to be so please with it :) :) Hugs Jane xxxx
