Fussy and Fancy Friday Shabby Bingo Fun Challenge

Hi everyone and hope you all ok..

We have a cracker of a challenge for you over at Fussy and Fancy Friday


Sponsored by Live and Love Crafts
Hosted by our lovely Judy
A brief explanation of Shabby-Chic / Cottage-Style;
   The term "shabby-chic" was first used in the late eighties by fashion designer Rachel Ashwell. The term encompasses the decor you might expect to find in a tastefully decorated country- cabin, or maybe even your own Grandmothers house.
Many shabby-chic/cottage style themes centre around the use of shades of white. This is invariably combined with soft dreamy floral-patterns, wonderful pastel blues, greens, creamy peach, and delicate pinks. The concept uses many different types of vintage items such as old furniture ( white " distressed" finish is popular) , wrought iron curtain rods with flimsy sheer curtains (perhaps dyed with tea), luxuriant pillows abound, and of course, plenty of fresh cut flowers. Shabby Chic/ Cottage Style is not rigidly defined, but is achieved through an elegant balance of the old and worn, shiny silver accessories, soft snugly furniture and plenty of pillows, vintage glass pieces certainly add to the overall effect.
   One could also expect to find rough, old lace and comfortable throw rugs, just think of how Grandmother decorated her home. If your Grandmother was anything like mine, she did not buy new furniture or household items. Back then many things were made by hand, or passed down. After all, Grandmother lived through the Great Depression, and two world wars. Durability and practicality were foremost; frivolous items were 'nay to be seen. Yet simple luxury and charm could be seen in abundance.
The requirements are simple.  
1.  Go for either one full line (that is using items selected vertical, horizontal or diagonally) or better still go for full house.  The chart is made it so that full house will be quite easy and enjoyable to do.

Those entrants who go for full house are asked to leave a comment on the post on my Blog at telling me they have gone for full house.  I will then pop the names from the full house comments on my Blog into a hat and the lucky winner will win a little bit of something which I will donate.
2.  Each entrant is asked to tell us what line they have gone for, and what they have used to qualify please.  
3.  Most of all, just have fun and let your creativity run away with you.  

Or CAS with a twist





(Glitter etc)






(eg: Dreamy delicate colours)


(Embossing, Structure paste, Cheesecloth etc)








(add something of your choice)

For my DT Card i have used the Top Row from the Bingo Board 

Viva Decor Happy Birthday Stamp
Spellbinder Oval Die
Tim Holtz Distressing Tool
WOC Roses

My 1st ever how to make YouTube Video

Hi everyone and hope you all ok..

Well i have finally done it..My 1st every how to make YouTube video. Think it may be my last if i dont find an easier way to do and upload. Have to shorten the videos as it took all day to do from making to uploading. (finished this morning) Took 268 minute to just up load onto YouTube, then with doing editing it took another 4 hour to change over so very long time. Hubby said its to do with our upload speed as we on the basic internet plus we could not use the internet while it was doing. (pain) Think may have to do uploading while im in bed next time then it should be finished by the time i get up lol.
Well i hope you enjoy lol
bet you spot the boo boo as the camera stopped (4 times in total) and i didnt no straight away, you miss me adding black lines round the edges and adding the purple paint with a stencil. 

Started of with a piece of 6 x 8 MDF board and Oddball Art Stamps image #172
