Guess who is GD??

Hi guys

Well the sun is shining here,its cold but at least the sun helps,
Well some news to share one of my dear blogging buddies,Shell asked me to be,GD for one month on
http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
How cool is that I was so chuffed did not even think about it I said yes straight away as I always feel so privileged  when people ask me to do anything like this.
But when I heard the theme was Kraft I thought oh woops' I have never done anything on Kraft before,and I did not have any either,so Dear Shell sent me some,and this is what I came up with hope you like it.




I have used one of my wooden stamps I have had for ages which I love,used,distress inks,spiced marmalade and barn door,I stamped the image first with versa mark then covered with white embossing powder,then stamped the image again onto Kraft and just used the face and laid onto the embossed piece.
Then matted it onto Black card,added one of Judie's lush swirls and button added a metal charm,key and some twine. You can buy Judie's embellishments HERE
So if you would like too see more of the fab teams work and play along this week please pop over HERE to join in,the theme is to use Kraft paper. Have fun I know I did,thanks again to Shell for asking me so chuffed.


Here is something else I would like to share with you 2  scrap-booking page's which I created in Serif the kits I bought are from digital creations,love the colours they have in there kits,so had a play and this is what I came up with. The first one was taken this year of Lisa and I at a wedding. The second one is my daughter Lisa with Kylie which was taken when we went to London,in madam tusords.
Have a great day guys hugs Cherylxxxx

I thought I would enter my Kraft piece into craftymess challenge as its anything goes,
