Eastern Promise!

Brrrrr, the temperature has definitely dropped here (Stoke, UK) over the last few days! I have heard we are due some snow, but after the last time I'm not getting to excited lol!

Anyhoos, its time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft, where this week we have something different for you....


I really love the effect this technique gives you, but always struggle with what image to use! I spent ages going through my rubber & digi stamps looking for the right one. I eventually decided on this little cutie, which I got a while ago from Dawn Bibby's shop!

Challenges I Would Like To Enter
Twist Of Faith- fab sketch
Penny's Challenge- anything goes
Anything Challenge- just good friends (this is being sent to a really good friend)
Cards & More- use a die cut
Card Making Mama's- add a sentiment (anything goes)

Goodies I Have Used
Image & sentiment- from a set by 'Hero Arts'
C6 card blank from Natalie & Amy's
Tim Holtz distress markers
Skin- spun sugar & worn lipstick
Kimono- bundled sage & fired brick
Ground- milled lavender & weathered wood

Papers & Embellishments
DP- 'Eastern Promise' by Dovecraft
'Scalloped rectangle #3' die cut by Nellie Snellen MFD048
'Circle' (from the doily set) die cut by Nellie Snellen MFD020
'Simple buckle' die cut by Memory Box 98185
Red card & ribbon my stash

Thank you for stopping by today! Please pop over & see what fab creations the DT have made!
 Stay safe & warm in the snow...

Great card. I like the image.
My kids are really hoping it snows. I went to get them some warm snow boots, but all my local shops have sold out of boots and sledges!
