MIM #78 with Di's Digi Downloads


Wow, that's another week down!

It was a busy weekend for us with lots to do the yard and a birthday celebration for our youngest son (turning 6 on Tuesday)

I got the results back from my previous CT scan and now have to head off this morning for a MRI on my lower back. Can't say I'm looking forward to it. But on the advice of a good friend I'm just going to enjoy the fact that there is no house work or children to look after for a fabulous 20 minutes while I am stuck in the tube and I plan to take a wee little Nanna nap while I'm in there, lol.

I didn't really get much opportunity to do a lot of crafting this week but I did manage to finish off a little project I started at my friend Shannean's house last week when we met up with another lady  for a day of guilt free crafting.

I thought I would share it for this week's Make It Monday linky party.

 I have made a few of these drawers before that you can see here and here.

The papers are from Stampin' Up! as is the sentiment.

Shannean just happened to have the perfect brads for me to use on the drawers.

Flower was made using a spellbinder die

Ok, now you have seen what I am sharing this week at Make It Monday.

Oh boy , with 256 entries to choose from it really is a difficult choice.

This week I would like to feature

apart from the fact that this card is just so amazingly beautiful I thought it was special too because she has incorporated some crochet lace that was made by her late Grandmother.

Can you see how she has threaded the thread through the buttons, wow, great detail!

Thank you so much for sharing this special card with us Birgit.
