My friend the Witch!!!

Hi all.... So a few weekends ago, I had a lovely week doing things I love for some lovely people, oh and my friend Julie's birthday  lol... (just joking).... 
So I have two friends from work, Julie and Annie, affectionately known as "riff and raff" and you may have surmised that the banter between the three of us flows freely and makes the days "such fun"....  So the other week was Julie's Birthday and like most friends there are standard jokes between us, which I won't bore you with, but suffice to say Julie's usually involve the words "Witch" and "Broomstick".... So when I saw this fantastic digi stamp called "Call Me A Witch" from Bugaboo it was perfect.... It seemed to go down well too, when she opened it...phew...!!

So I made a frame from grey shimmer card and used the same card as a mat, for the paper which were from the "gorjuss" range...

I downloaded another little broom digi for the inside, also from bugaboo stamps and after die-cutting it I inked it with "Pumice Stone"

It's difficult to pick up, in the picture but I used a "wink of stella" on the buckle and the top of the stick...

Floral Notes...

Hi... So my second post is also my second piece of news, I am delighted to share with you that I am now part of the DT for Digi Galore Challenges ... The challenges are run monthly, on the first of each month. This month's challenge is sponsored by the beautiful Aurora Wings and is "Alter a Notebook and/or Floral". So you can do either, or both, which is what I decided to do... This sort of project was a first for me and pushed me way out of my comfort zone lol.. I wasn't entirely happy with the result but I would certainly like to make another, having learn't so many do's and don'ts just by making this one project...

 I used the digi stamp Pansy 3  and fussy cut it out....I used some 12 x 12 double sided paper in contrasting colours and covered the front back and inside covers. The trim was made using a daisy punch in orange card. I layered the cut out digi onto a fancy rectangle die-cut in the same orange card.
Inside back and front covers

and the back cover.. I covered the spine of the Note book with grey shimmer card.

The scrabble letters, were stick on embellishments ...

Ivory, Vanilla, Honeycomb, Ginger, Spice, Heatwave, Burgundy 
Pear Green, Leaf Green, Moss

Papers - First Edition Noir et Chic

I'm entering the following challenge....
