Granny Time

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is an awesome digi pack containing several images and a paper pack too - how cool is that.

Challenge #236

Theme 'Anything Goes with SPECIAL LADY' 

There really are so special ladies in the world, from Mums, sisters, teachers etc and of course Grandmothers.  So my Special Lady creation is for a Granny, Grandmother, Nanna etc. When I saw this digi it just reminded me of those special moments that are shared between the two different generations and last a lifetime :) :) :) The image used on this creation is Granny Time by My Heart Pieces.
I coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos 
For the rest of the card I used mauve glitter card and covered the front panel with lace.  Next using Spellbinders Adoring Squares and Sizzix Scalloped Squares I made four small toppers which were mounted with foam tape for added heights. Again using Spellbinders Adorning Squares I cut another mount with the mauve glitter card.  Finally the image was cut with Spellbinders Circles.  Next I added a sentiment using silver peel off stickers - Made for Each Other and added some mauve liquid pearls to the digi area.  The patterned paper is from Papermania and with having wee roses on it I carried this theme forward by adding a small spray of mauve rose buds and some pearls.  A star charm was also added to the flower spray, a bit of fun from me because I often say to folks who do lovely things 'you are a star' :).  To finish off a mauve organza ribbon was added, just for that delicate look.  The inside of the card was a simple die cut - Diesire Enchanted Spring to which I added some more Liquid Pearls.

  3. This picture brought back so many memories of when we were children spending time with gran. She was blind so couldn't read us stories but she had a wealth of tales to tell . She would snake her hand underneath our jumper or blouse and complain that we weren't wearing a vest, or feel around our knees when we were older and tell us our skirts were too short ... lol! Happy times. This image is lovely and beautifully coloured. The lace is beautiful and so too are the other embellishments. Gorgeous! Hugs Christine xx
