I have been waiting for this challenge for a long time




Every time I make a card I always look for a rub-on challenge and atlast it's here. I love rub-on's and use them in almost every card I make. They are so easy to work with and I think they would have to be my favourite crafting embellishment.

The other day when I was in Spotlight I came across these awesome rub-ons and had to buy them to add to my collection. As well as crafting I have an interest in home design so I am always excited when I come across furniture images that I can use on my cards. I kept this card simple using the rub-on's as the main embellishment. The only things that are not rub-ons is the green polka dot paper which is meant to be a carpet and the red bling for the centre of the flowers.

The Challenges I have included-
Anything goes in the link up party-Make it Monday
Anything goes linking party-Passionately artistic
Here's the rub-CAS-ual Fridays
CAS-Wee Memories

Life has been busy with my dad still in hospital, I go there everyday and this leaves little time to do much else. As stress release I have  been making jewellery over the last few days and will be sharing the pieces I have made on my blog soon. Hope all my blogging friends are well and thanks so much for visiting.

Just a reminder that my blogging is for sharing giveaway is still on, would love it if you all would share a special project or anything that you feel other bloggers would enjoy.

This card was featured at the Passionately Artistic link party

So sorry to hear that your dad's in the hospital; but I'm glad you live close enough that you can visit. Sending good wishes his way!
What a gorgeous card...I never would have thought they were rub-ons! I had a short love affair with rub-ons some time ago, but haven't found any good new ones recently. Must keep an eye out!

Prayers unto you and your family. I hope your dad has a speedy recovery! It seems like you can combine the best of both worlds now (your jewelry beading and rub on's)! Your card is so amazing! I would love to have that furniture at my place:)

I love the card. Wow using rub ons for this card is great. I don't use them that much and really need to try using them on a card. Sorry to hear your dad is not well. Hope he gets better soon.
