The Darkside

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I hope you're keeping well and having a good week so far. I've finally found some time to myself and spent the last hour crafting - an hour well spent I'm sure you'll agree! I've made a series of very similar cards, inspired by the "one layer" challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. I've used my favourite stamp and lots of gems and sparkle!

I've also been inspired by a colour combo challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week, where the lovely ladies want to see cards which are black and purple.....well you know how much I love purple!

I hope the Cupcake ladies approve of my card.....i've used black ink to stamp my image and sentiment directly onto the card and then I've embellished my tree with purple gems and black stickles. This card is to send to my Aunty in Bognor, I hope she likes it.

Pop by both blogs to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

I also wanted to show you my latest vintage purchase, some gorgeous Meakin coffee cups and saucers....what do you think?? I got these from my favourite antique shop in Farnham, which is a wonderful old house, with wonky floors!
Right, thats all tonight folks....the washing up calls! Thanks for popping by today, I love reading all your lovely comments.
