Good morning and welcome to Friday and a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge the theme is Pets....and is sponsored by Crafty Sentiments....

As always I am really looking forward to seeing all your creations and projects....

Here is my inspiration...I do hope that you like it...

It started life with a die from Spellbinders which I ran through my EBosser...twice...once to cut out and then to emboss....

After embossing it, I added some colour using Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.

And then stamped this gorgeous Clarity cute is this image . ( and yes Mum,,,I bought it for your Birthday card don't is just like your little girl )

I added some colour with Spectrum Noir pencils....

Then on separate card I stamped the words in Potting Soil and added some D.I. around the edges.

I had some Graphic 45 papers in my stash so I used some from the ' A Ladies Diary Collection' ( Moment in Time ) some matting and layering and then I cut out some of the design and added them.

Next came the best bit...time to play with flowers, ribbon and hatpins....the flowers are from Sweet Lilac check out their blog

And web site.

Oh and one of those little glass bottles too...

A metal embellishment, some Glassy Accents and job done....

If you would like to enter the Challenge or just have a look at the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team ...go and have a look here.....

Thanks for stopping and spending a few minutes with me today...

Have a good weekend, especially as it is a bank holiday...
