Mid month Inspiration at By the Cute and Girly - Favourite Things

Just dropping in with another dose of mid month inspiration for the March By the Cute and Girly challenge.  Well, this months theme is your "Favourite Things" and as you might have gathered mine are beads, yarn and sentiments.  This month we are sponsored by

 giving away a £10 Gift voucher

giving away 7 digital images (winners choice)

 Bugaboo Stamps 

 Bugaboo stamps gave each of the DT a digi image to create with.  Needless to say I went for one of their lovely sentiment ones called Laugh sentiment.....and made this monochrome card
The moustache is one of my own embroidered embellies while the die cut flowers are sprinkled with seed beads.  The twine is from the Papermania Gorjuss range of bakers twine.  A very easy card to make; no colouring, no fussing.  Leave out the flowers, replace them with buttons and you have a card suitable for a MAN (those yokes we dread having to make cards for!)
Entering this card in WordArt Wednesdays Challenge No 71
Dutch Dare Spots & Stripes (the spots are on the buttons in the flower centres, the stripes are on the twine)
Also Vs sweetideas Masculine challenge
So you still have more than a fortnight to enter the "Favourite Things" challenge and all crafts are allowed even baking/knitting etc... Details HERE
 Happy Crafting

By the Cute and Girly March challenge "Favourite Things"

Hi Folks,
This months challenge at BTC&G is "Favourite Things" and its sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps so grab your favourite colours, stamps, die cuts, embellies etc and get making your March project.  
My favourite things to use when crafting are yarn, beads and sentiments and Bugaboo have some lovely blocks featuring digi sesigns with sentiments.   Love, love, love quotes and sentiments and one of the stupidest things I ever did was to put my Penguin Books of Quotations (the regular one and the modern one) into the charity bag when I moved house 3 years ago.....
So here is my card using the Bugaboo digi "live life in colour"
