Holes with The Crafty Pad

Happy Sunday folks! 

Well this week the girls at 
really have a challenge for you!

We want to see
HOLES

Yep that is right ... HOLES

Now ... This one stumped me at first as I wanted to really get creative and not use a holey die-cut - (a challenge I placed on myself lol), but with a little thought an idea bloomed and I really enjoyed the challenge in this! So I would love you all to challenge yourselves as well and play along with us. 

So enough chatter and lets get on with the pics and where Mojo and I went with HOLES!


I love the softness that finished in this card.  I have used the Cupcake set from The Crafty Pad Designs; the cupcake I have layered up, for the frosting I applied white puff paint and sprinkled with pink glitter and to really make the cherry stand out I have colored with copics and then dimensional magic-ed it. To make my 'holes' I used my eyelet punch and then threaded my ribbon through the holes.  I really love this sentiment as well and can see myself using it plenty of times! It is just perfect  to add to a card to 'pick someone up' and not just limited to Birthdays.

Our sponsor this week is the lovely and no other
and she has kindly offered the winner £10.00 to spend in her shop!
And trust me! That is EASY to do; all her products are BEAUTIFUL!

You can find some more amazing inspiration by the lovely Crafty Pad Design team girls who have really outdone themselves this week with some lush creations, so please drop by, have a peaksie and share some love along they way!


Thank you for dropping in on me,
and I hope you will join us this week and take up the challenge!
