2 ways with pins

****There are still spaces for this years Craft Weekend I am arranging in October click HERE for more details****

Hi everyone I have 2 creations for you today the first is a card and I have used the gorgeous stamp from the Crafts and Me Sara Burrier range called "The Leap" available HERE the I have then coloured with promarkers and added sparkle with sakura stardust pens. I have inked all the edges to give a more distressed look. I have added some ribbon (from Papermania), flowers (from Mulberry Crafts UK) and pins (from Crafty Emma's Store) to finish it off. The paper is an old one from Dovecrafts Charcoal Prints pack.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Card makin' Mamas - Something old (the DP is years old)
Sketches by Carly - I have used their great sketch
4 Crafty chicks - Pins
Crafty Ribbon - Love is red and black
Moving along with the times - Blooming marvelous
Paper crafting Journey - Flowers

For my second creation I have made a bag charm using a big nappy pin :D For my main image I have used the fun Hannah Lynn "Alice Lost" image. I stamped her in Hydrangea stazon (you can get different colours of Stazon HERE) Then used my heat gun to shrink it down and put it on an eye pin with some beads before attaching it to the pin. I think I will be making some more of these it is a great way to use up odd beads and charms.

I am entering this pin for the following challenges:
Cafty Catz - Things with wings (I have used a butterfly and a dragonfly charm)
Fariy fun Fridays - Anything but a card

I hope you are all having a good weekend and don't forget there is still time to join the current Crafts and Me challenge which is pink and sparkly.

Huge hugs
