Good afternoon peeps, I do hope you are all feeling reasonably well - although I must admit the weather is definitely not helping any germs you may be harbouring!!  

This fortnight the theme at the One Stitch at a Time Challenge is Anything Goes 'Something New' - this could be anything such as new home, new baby, new job or new stash and what about a new technique??  Still on my drive to make a few cards for different occasions, I decided on 'New Job' so here is my design.

I had the image in front of me but had absolutely no idea what colours I was going to use - typical me - so I took a piece of the same card and tried different shades of various colours and ...... funnily enough ...... I veered towards the purples  (quelle surprise eh girls!).  I matted the white embossed pearlescent card onto a piece of satin finish purple mirri card - although you can't really see this in the pics.  I also had some gorgeous 'hollow' purple and blue threads in my stash but they were too soft to shape so I threaded fuse wire through them (thank goodness I have me new glasses) and shaped them into loops.  


Image - Floral Frame 2 - 'Floppy Latte' from Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet
Embossing Folder - 'Floral Brocade' from Creative Expressions
Grand Decorative Ovals die - Spellbinders
Sentiment dies - Tattered Lace
Twisted Metal Tags and Accents dies - Samantha Walker at Spellbinders
Flowers/Leaves - WOC
Threads - stash

I do hope you can find the time to create a card for our challenge, the prize is a paper pack and digi images

Oh well, that's all from me for now, thanks for popping by my blog and if you have had the time to leave a comment or three I really am grateful.  Take care all of you and I'm thinking about those of you who are poorly or are looking after some one who is under the weather.

Huge big hugs to you

    Goodness knows, my blog commenting seems to be a bit confined to the Playground right now, which is such a shame. BUT, I just HAD to come over here after seeing your Playground comment. At first I couldn't even think what I might have done, hopped over to Sue's and am still almost under the desk - bright red but laughing as well!! That'll teach me. Tee, hee - oh the shame of it!!
