As I write this post, I'm looking for a bit of sympathy. I fell over this morning and landed with such a thump that it made me really queer. Anyway, the nausea passed, but I can hardly walk. I can't put any weight on my right leg at all..it's killing me. Nothing's broken so probably really bruised the bone, but oh! I could cry.

Anyway, who doesn't like a bit of dingly dangly eh? Over at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week, the challenge is to use metal or a charm on your card. Now, I very rarely use charms even though I've got loads (I don't know why..probably too lazy to get them out), so this made a change for me and I love my little scissors and sewing machine. Our sponsor is JOANNA SHEEN with £10 to spend for the winner. Because Joanna doesn't provide images for us it means we can use anything we like, so I rooted through my hundreds of stamps and decided to use a plate I bought a long time ago (and almost forgotten about) by Oxford Impressions. It's an A4 plate called 'The Art of Being Beautiful' and there's some fabulous stamps on it.

To go with the theme of the images, I decided to go a bit vintage, and hopefully I've succeeded. Apart from the papers (K & Co) and the lace, everything was stamped and coloured with my Promarkers. I then cut out some of my stamped pieces and 3D mounted them.

Entering into:
FASHIONABLE STAMPING #3 - Ribbon or lace.
ANYTHING GOES #49 - Vintage/Shabby Chic.

CREATIVE CARD CREW - Anything goes.
