Emo Girl

Hi All

Hope you are all well... weather here today is HORRIBLE!! wind / rain / cold = yuk!!

This was based around these loverly skull doilies I got from Crafty Emma's Store... aren't they fab?? I wanted to keep the background plain to bring out the skull...nesss... I Had a play with pattern papers and it didn't really work. 

The lovely girl is a digi from Di's Digi Downloads. I got the idea of her sitting on the bottom of the doilie from a card that the lovely Angel had previously made (hope you don't mind hun!)

The ribbon is from my stash, and the candi & ribbon slider is also from Crafty Emma's Store

Sorry about the dark picture... said weather means its quite dark here today!! Hope it brightens up soon!! She's is quite a bold card in life.

Hope you like & thanks for stopping by :) xxx

Cross Stitched notebook

Hi All. Would like to share with you a make I did to send to a good friend.

It is a handmade notebook with cross stitch pattern on the cover.

I started off with the border of the frame and the filling in the purple.
The stitching up close:
I then  glued it to some card, adding a border page, back card page and all the middle sheets. I then punched through the layers and added 3 hoops to keep it all together.

Back view:
Hope you like & thanks for stopping by :) xxx

I would like to enter this into the following challenge
Make it Monday - Anything goes
