Stampers wear the trousers

Morning Crafters,

Well Day 1 of being back to work is behind me and I have to say it flew by as I was soooo busy, they had computer problems, program problems and more than enough emails to catch up on that my day was over in a flash.  Tomorrow will be more of the same as I prepare for our annual ISO audit on Mon/Tuesday of next week.

My DT card today is for Live and Love Crafts.  The new theme for the week  for the DT to follow and believe me we absolutely love it, is the new MajaDesigns Spring Basics papers, yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Well I'm sure you all have yours now.  I love the 6x6 pads but for me I like the choice of wanting to make either a 6x6 card, or use my Go Kreate Dies to make a shaped card, and really for those you  need the 12x12 papers, and as they are all doubled sided, there's definitely lots of choice.  So no surprise, I have a shaped card to share with you.  I have used the MajaDesign paper front and back called "2nd May" and as it was entitled May it needed lots of spring flowers, lol.

You will notice I frantaged the Maja Designs Burlap Flower, lol. I used the shabby pink and white and  with all this frantage I could be heading for a new nick name, and speaking of frantage, next Monday I will have a little surprise for you so don't forget to pop back, I'm quite excited.

My little bottle on the bark heart does have a message to go in it, I just photographed it before I put it in.  It says......Stampers wear the Trousers!

Speaking of trousers, this brings me to the flower jeans charm on the tag at the top, isn't it adorable and check out that lace

Here's the little corked vial, minus the message, lol and the KortandGodt little Hortensias, gorgeous and I'm getting better at going ROUND on the sewing machine instead of STRAIGHT.  Those Go Kreate shapes twist and turn in places and my confidence is slowing growing.

Hope I have inspired you today.  I'll be back tomorrow with the winner of my latest candy and another card.

Hugs Tracy x
