Frilly and Funkie Challenge - Something To Say

Hello you lovely people!

Another challenge jumps in to life over at Frilly and Funky and this time the theme is:


There are so many fabulous quotes and sayings now available for use on our projects. Whether you stamp it, print it, write it or die cut it, make your sentiment the main focus of attention on your vintage or shabby chic entries.


I created a card suitable for use for any occasion, but as it turned out it went off to it's new home sooner than I thought, my sister in law's birthday :)

Here, I'd like to say huge thanks to Jenny for helping me out with the watermark!! THANK YOU! :) I recently (and accidentally) updated my Mac to Yosemite and it's the worst thing ever!! Everything has changed - grr!! (Breathe and..... happy place) ;)

Anyway, back to business, here are some close ups :):

This gorgeous ornamental setting from Tim Holtz was just perfect to encase my word. I chose 'WISH' because it's time and time over for any occasion.

Some lovely pearl dots by Kaisercraft

Rolled roses using Maja Design Summer Basics paper.

Short and sweet again today, I have to figure the final, well everything, for the new kitchen. So I am measuring and measuring again like a crazy person, (crazy because the kitchen isn't built yet - lol) plus I still need a solution to the dining area - brain is in overload... but... at least the builders started this week - yay!! :) I can see the light... :) :) 

Gotta dash, and will be catching up with all you lovely folk very, very soon.
