The Crafty Pad GDT - Lace and Bows

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend with plenty of sunshine. It is roasting hot here today so a stay in the shade day for me.

This week at The Crafty Pad we have a fabulous theme for you to follow so time to play again with some of your favourite embellishments

LACE & BOWS
I have printed off the sentiment and Fairy Chloe on Daisies, available from The Crafty Pad Designs, and cut out with my nesties, coloured with copics and prisma pencils, glamour dusted her wings and added a wee bit of stickles to the flower centres. Papers are SU, lace ribbons and gems from my stash.


I have used the sketch, rotated, designed by Carly for Flutter By Wednesday. Carly's wee sister shares my birthday on May 31st along with my grandson Ryan who will be celebrating his 18th. Carly is celebrating her sister´s birthday with some blog candy so do check out her blog for full deets.

A Spoonfull of Sugar - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Flutter By Wednesday - Sketch
Kaboodle Doodles - Tic Tac Toe ... digi, lace, flowers
PaperPlay - Sparkle Galore
