Faux grids & lots of pink!

OK..... who's pinched most of the links that were on my side bar???
They have disappeared! Weird as I can see them if I go into customise.
Oh well I am sure they will reappear when there good and ready.

It does make blog hopping more of an effort though, and as I had lost my mojo and done very little crafting this last week, I NEED them back.........pretty please!

Anyhow, I did find some unexpected inspiration when I went shopping Saturday with my daughter. We popped into Poundland and I spotted some BIG bags of flower die cuts. They had them in 3 colour sets and each bag has flowers in 4 sizes, they layer up really nicely! Well.....I just had to get some! In pinks, lilacs and white/ivory.

After browsing through some challenges I was of the quickest cards I have made. Really must craft this way more often.
So, this weeks Papertake challenge
is 'Pretty Pink Papertake' so out came the pink flowers & pearls & chalks.
And this weeks Housemouse challenge
is called 'Faux grid'. Now I must admit this one seemed a bit scary, until I had a peek at all the fabulous DT cards. I decided to play with my embossing board to create embossed grid lines which I have lightly chalked in pink to highlight them a bit.

This colour is a real pickle to photo, especially in poor light, try as I might this is the best I can do. The pinks are Bazzill card Petal Soft & Sweetheart........honest! the flowers are quite a good match to the Bazzil card too.
Image is "Maxwell's note" a Housemouse stamp of course......he's so cute!

And that's it for to play with some more flowers!
Thanks for stopping by.
