Oops…running late for Craft-Room

Blimey – I had such a manic day yesterday at work I came home and completely forgot to schedule the Craft-Room challenge post, so it’s a bit late – sorry! Craft-Room are a fortnightly challenge and for each challenge we are lucky enough to have wonderful sponsors. This fortnight it is a welcome return to Crafty Individuals.

Nikki chose this weeks theme of ‘Pins and Charms’.


For my card I have used paper, a beautiful fairy stamp and one of the new die cuts from Crafty Individuals.  Added to this is a flower cut from Tim Holtz’s tattered floral die, cut in calico and stamped on, a TH ticket, seam binding and of course pins and a charm.


I’m sharing my card here -

Allsorts – Heavy Metal

Crafty-emblies – Flora and Fauna

Papertake Weekly – Pins and Needles

Penny Black and more – Whiskers and/or Wings

Simon Says Stamp and show – No Rules

Sir Stampalot – Take Flight

I hope you play along with us this week  - thanks for visiting,  Esther xx
