Hi Everyone!

I hope you are well and your week is going ok.

Remember the challenge is "Anything Goes" but you MUST use a Sugar Nellie image.  These can all be found at Funky Kits!


 I have used one of the gorgeous new images for my card:




This little darling is called "A Little Bit of Gossip" which I think is out of stock at the moment but check out the rest of the range here. I have used my Vintage Summer papers from Maja Designs and added mulberry flowers from the Hobby House. I have also used my new La La Land Butterfly die.  A touch of glamour dust and pearls to finish.

Hobby House - Gift Cracker

Good Morning Everyone

I hope you had a nice weekend, mine was quite busy on Friday and Saturday and yesterday was just rubbish, but I won't bore you with it!!

I am here today for my inspiration post for The Hobby House.  If you managed to get to the shop for their 10 year birthday on Saturday I hope you had a great time!  

For my inspiration piece I have made a little gift cracker using all the gorgeous goodies from the Hobby House!




It was a little tricky to photograph properly!  I have covered the cracker on each side with paper from First Edition - New Bloom.  You can find a selection of First Edition paper pads on in the HH store here. The image is a pre-coloured image from Wee Stamps and is from the Silver Fairy sheet here. Then I added lots of gorgeous pearls, swirls and ribbon - are full list is here:

Hobby House Topper Wee Stamps - Silver Fairy 
Hobby House Organza Ribbon - Lilac

Hobby House Pearls - Liking Lilac

Please pop on over to the Inspiration Blog for lots more gorgeous projects and ideas from the Design Team.  And remember you still have time to enter the Anything Goes challenge on the Challenge Blog, you could win £25 to spend in the shop! 

Have a great day.

I really enjoyed working with these little beauties and really love the sweet colours!  I used paper from Maja Designs - Vintage Summer Basics and the die is La La Land Filigree Corner.  All the embellishments are from the Hobby House, including pearl ribbon, lace ribbon, mulberry flowers and pearls.
