PDD and some exciting news!!

Boy am I having a great weekend!!! Before I get into that I'd like to share with you a fantastic stamp idea exclusive to Pez-A-Doodle Designs. Nestability Frames!! This particular one is called Blackberries and it comes in 2 sizes per pack, the one I used is the bigger one. Also available is Butterfly Scallop Frame which is compatible with the circle nesties. I've a feeling these will sell out fast, so if you want them you'd better not delay!!

It's been a while since I've done a clean and simple card :) I put my card through the cuttlebug using the 'Thanks' folder and tied some multicoloured tulle around it. Then I cut out my nestie label and stamped the frame on it. I coloured the blackberry image with distress inks. Then I cut a bigger frame and mounted the smaller one onto it. The sentiment is a Studio G. I mounted the frames onto my card using 3D foam dots and finished it off by adding some white pearls to the centres of the flowers and along the bottom of my bigger label.


The other PDD DT members have also been busy, please do check out their blogs to see what they've been up to. Links are on my side bar!!

NOW.. on to my great news!!!!!
