Live & Love Crafts Advent Day 3 !!!!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I am so honoured to be here as a guest designer on the

 Live & Love Crafts Challenge Advent Calender !! 

It's Day 3 and every day there is stunning inspiration and candy so please pop on over to the blog for all the details !!!

Today you can win a yard  of gorgeous Maya Road Vintage Trim !!
 It's beautiful and such great value for money !  It just makes anything look so pretty ! 

I have made a pocket card with beautiful  Pion Silent Night Snowfall Papers which I coated the edges with Claudine Hellmuth Gesso and added some Glamour Dust just before it dried !! I used the Trim to add some texture and to give it that soft vintage look  ;0)

I have used the beautiful Magnolia with bouquet . I tried colouring on canvas for the first time with distress inks . I just love the soft shabby look to her . I also cut cut the little snowflakes with the canvas and added Martha Stewart pearls to the centers.  The beautiful roses along the bottom are from Kort and Godt with a touch of stickle stardust glitter glue .

Oopsies the wee pearl fell off !!

The insert has two beautiful vintage pearl pins just tucked behind the Vintage Maya Road Trim . I have used the cropodile and snap to hang the sweet little snowflake charm.

I hope you have been inspired and will join us in all the fun of advent at Live & Love Crafts Blog.

Only just over a week to my wedding !! So looking forward to getting all dressed up and having a great time with all my loved ones !!  Just thought I better practice my new signature,  I am going to be Mrs Duckworth lol  , so getting ready for the Oi Vera jokes .....
