A warm glow...

There's a hard frost outside today and it's so cold but I'm not grumbling I know there's parts of the country who have it an awful lot worse than we do and I really do feel for you so keep warm and safe dear friends...
My card for today will hopefully give you a warm glow of warmer days to come, this is a Faye Whittaker  stamp called 'Lifebouy' from the All our yesterdays collection of stamps, I used to cross stitch all these gorgeous little images of summertime before I got into card making. This is my first stamp from the range and I intend to buy many more.


I used Tim Holtz papers, layered & sewn
stamped the corners again with a cute corner stamp and added pearls (Kort & Godt)
Magnolia die cut tag
with white seam ribbon bow (The Ribbon Girl)
Pink sparkly ribbon (Michaels)
Faye Whittaker stamp 'All our yesterdays' (Joanna Sheen)
(Wild Orchid Craft) Roses
Sea shells
starfish charm (The Ribbon Girl)
Cheesecloth (Amazon.co.uk and Michaels)


Challenges;
The Cutie pie challenge #7 ~ Use a sentiment
Creative Craft Challenges ~ Faux or real stitching
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge #50 ~ Bingo (Ribbon, flowers & die cut)

Hope you like it. keep warm
Luv & hugs
