Where did the week go? and The Pixie Cottage DT card!

How can it be Thursday! I had such great blogging plans-and I have quite a few posts to write up as well! It's been a crazy busy week here, we've all been poorly with colds and my etsy shop has been crazy busy for about a month-which is great but time has just flown by! As I am based in the UK I decided to also open a Folksy shop to run alongside my etsy store. Here it is if you want a peek!

Right onto my card! Wednesday was my second week Guest Designing for The Pixie Cottage and the theme this week is vintage/distressing! My favourite! For this card I used the fabulousSouth End Girl Stamp. She is such a versatile image I know I'm going to use her over and over! I got some lush papers from my friend Clare the other day-I've never heard of the brand before now but they're by GCD studios and the pack is called Ella Blue. I also used some text to paper piece the South End girl stamp-I think it's quite a cool look! The flower is a nestie die which I got recently and this was the first chance I've had to play! Ooo and the tag is from one of my tag sets available here if you're overseas or here if you're from the UK.

Angle shot-I'm making sure I decorate my insides of the card at the time instead of leaving them till they get sold or get sent off! Got to be more organised!

I'm also going to enter this at Paperplay who theme is brown and..and Crafty Cardmakers, and I also followed the sketch at Midnight Madness.

Right then I'm gonna go off and get the dinner cooked! Thanks so much for stopping by and for any comments-I love hearing from you! I also have another giveaway to post so I'll be back later-keep your eyes peeled!
