Paper shelter "sweet""

I won a challenge on a card blog the other week , $15 worth of Paper Shelter digi stamp images , they are super , this is one of them, called "sweet". I used my craft studio software to do the image  turning the colours into a red hue . The backing papers are strawberry farm digi papers . I cut the image out , inked the edges with a dark grey whisper pen and layered (decoupaged ) with foam pads. The Happy Birthday sentiment is by tattered lace , I cut it out three times in silver and pink glitter card from do craft (they have adhesive on the back , makes it much easier). The denim bag is from Hobby craft part of a fashion set of embellishments for cards.

challenges entered :
The Paper Shelter : Birthdays
alphabet challenge : D for decoupage
fussy and fancy : anything goes 
the crazy challenge : Bingo (I choose red,brown , pink)

Happy crafting and enjoy the long weekend if your in the Uk . jane x

Kanban Annabel and Pearl Wedding

30 years ago Jane and Robert Middleton got married , I was a child bride of  19 , how the years have flown , glad to say we are still very happy . I remember the day like it was yesterday . The weather was cold and windy but the rain held off . The men looked so handsome in their Morning Suits , the ladies lovely in their hats , my veil had to be held down because of the wind . Of course much has changed  and many who attended the wedding , Grandparents of ours , are no longer with us , they will remain in our hearts and hopeful our love for each other will last another 30 and beyond .

This is an oldie but a goodie stamp ,from the Kanban Anabel stamp set . The image is so sweet , the little girl grooming the big dog on a step , it's the other way round from me , my little toy poodle has the step whilst I groom him.
I've coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a white gel pen . The rose dp is by first edition. The dies are mft and a few gems the finishing touch .

challenges entered :
cup cake inspiration : see pic above 
gem of a challenge : furry friends
crafting when we can : animals
