And the 2nd challenge today is over at Paperplay, the Challenge this week is to use Monocromatic and Ribbon in your project..

Tie it up!

Hi Folks,
     Well i dont know what the weather is like where you all live but its been awful in stoke, On Weds night i heard the loudest smash i thought someone had thrown a brick through the window, so after creeping downstairs holding my dog by his collar i checked the house, Nope! all clear, Must of dreamt it...
Went back bed, although i couldnt sleep, it was way too noisy, so 6am i finally get up, let out the dogs, only too have them stand at the back door, looking at me, after telling them go on for 5 mins and them whine at me, i stepped outside, never in all my life was i prepared for what i saw....
Glass everywhere, the flaming wind had only blown my New glass patio table set over, smashing it too smitherines and completely snapped the parasol in half, the dog kennel was on its roof at the other end of the garden and god only knows where the tarp off the kids bikes went....
So i spent all day Thursday clearing up glass, i still have lots to get up, it gets everywhere, so no playing on the trampoline for the girls, which left them very upset, so we all decided, today we would craft, i managed to catch up with a few DT cards and girls did theres too...
So heres my DT Card for the new challenge over at Freshbrewed Designs, which is "Tie it up"
I am a wee late but hope its worth it!
I used the Brand new digi stamps created by Heather, which are now for sale HERE
There is 3 in total and i just adore them....

I decided to do a wrap card as i can tie it up and yes it fits the theme,
Inside matches the front and has a pull out panel to write on.
Papers-Sir stampalot-Echo Park?
Die cut circles,squares,scalloped
Twine-Freshbrewed Designs
Flowers-Wild Orchid Crafts

Hope you enjoy my card
Pop over and join in the challenge and check out what the fab DT has made to inspire you..
