"Love Is In the Air" At A Brand New Challenge Blog

Good morning.  I hope you are all well. My followers  may remember that I was on the DT of OSAAT (One Stitch At A Time) for a few years and sadly it closed  its doors in November.  Boo hoo! However, we decided that we really didn't want to lose the friendship that had built up amongst the teamies so we got together and formed International Art &Soul, which is a Just For Fun challenge blog - no sponsors just a theme and a chance to claim a winner's banner for your blog. Jane, our coordinater, put in an ordinate amount of work to get the blog up and running, so many thanks to her! We really hope you will hop on over, check it out and maybe join in the fun.

Our first Challenge is Love Is In The Air and this can cover so much that I'm sure you'll be able to make a project to suit - anniversary, wedding, engagement, Valentine, the list is endless.

My Card

6" square white base card
lavender pearlescent card - Crafter's Companion
backing papers - LOTV ancient stash
topper - LOTV
lace scrap  - from stash
border punch - X Cut
chipboard hearts - ancient stash

I have been clearing out my craft room so that John could put additional shelves in and hopefully make me a little tidier ... lol!  It's amazing how much stuff you find that you had totally forgotten about.  I also passed masses of stuff over to a friend who runs Rainbows - and there will be more I'm sure.  I'm going to be ruthless!!!

Anyway this cute little elephant and the chipboard hearts were found so I made use of them for this card. Isn't he adorable?

Well that's all from me today.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  10. Good luck on the ruthless purge of craft supplies! I love this darling little Love Ellie. The background is not the 'expected' pink/red of Valentine, but just perfect for sweet Ellie. Love that delicately patterned paper, the elegant lace, and the card design. So glad you kept your group going too. Well done on the card - it's just adorable. TFS & Hugs

  11. This is so sweet. The little fellow is adorable and your design so pretty.
    I was fairly ruthless when I moved and took lots of boxes of crafty goodies to the thrift shop. But I notice that I have not a feather of room in my stamp boxes so think I need to give those a good going over!

  12. Hi Christine
    Mega cute card. A lovely image and embellished beautifully.
    Best wishes.

I am so glad you have John putting up new shelves and giving you the change to find your hidden supplies, bet it is feeling a bit like Christmas :) :) :) How you managed to put this adorable image away I don't know but I am so glad you did. A truly beautiful creation Christine and happy dancing our wee family have stayed together. Super big hugs and thank you sweetheart. xxxxxxx
