Good morning

I have been busy the last few nights making cards for a new crafting range 'A-May-Zing' that Nigel May is launching on Create & Craft on 19th April.  The first CD in the collection is 'All Kinds of Everything' and has something for occasions throughout the year (birthdays, weddings, romance, babies etc) and is jam packed with gorgeous toppers, papers, decoupage, sentiments and much much more!

For my first card I just had to use this gorgeous teapot image :-)

The topper, papers and sentiment have all been printed from the CD.  I have just added some ribbon, flowers, pearls and a matching charm which was made by punching out one of the tiny toppers from the image sheet using my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio tool and Epoxy Shapes (Square 25) which was then stuck to a Metal Charm Setting

* Challenges *

The Poodles Parlour ~ Going Dotty
Totally Papercrafts ~ Bingo (3 across ... Blue, Ribbon, Pearls)
Papercrafting Journey ~ Photo Inspiration
The Pixie Cottage ~ Sweet Treats
The Craft Garden ~ Pastel Colours

Hope you are all having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend so far. We had a relaxing day yesterday ... just popped out late afternoon to buy some paint because are planning to do some decorating next week and then we stopped off at KFC on the way home.  Not sure what we are doing today!
