Time for a new challenge at Sparkles!

Hello there friends, followers and visitors. Nice to see you all drop by! It's time for a fun new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. This time, we're asking you to make something that has to do with animals. Be it a cute puppy, a kitty cat or a quirkg mouse, we would like to see your creativity in creating something with animals on it.
Now that you know what to do, here's my card for inspiration

I've colored Penny Black's "Welcome Party" with me watercolor pencils. 
Patterned paper is from MyMind's Eye "Everyday Tango" collection.  I distressed the edges with my scissors  and added white acrylic paint  to imitate snow.
I made the Holly using two leaves and vines from EasyCraft and three tiny Fimo balls.
Sentiment is from Papermania

I love how this card turned out! 
Now get crafting and you might just be the lucky winner of a pretty bag of ribbons from Crafty Ribbons!

That's it for me today. Don't forget to checkout what my team mates have created this month.

OMG hi there you guys!
I missed you so much!
Hope all my lovely desk snooping friends are okay.
This is just a quickie from me to tell you that I'm still there!

I've started college and things are going pretty well. Loving English literature and Greek mythology!  I've also been crafting a lot and making mixed media canvases. I can't wait to share them with you guys!

As some of you already know, I don't have internet acess because we're still moving BUT, I did manage to make a little tutorial for you and I would LOVE it if you check it out. It's for this gorgeous lace bracelet:

I will be replying to comments and visiting everyone back, but I'm doing this on my phone so please bear with me. :)
Catch you all later!

Tutorial: Antique Lace Bracelet

Hello there crafty friends and followers! Have you missed me? Wow almost two months without blogging! Life's been crazy over here; first days at college, moving and what not. But I'm here now and I'm sharing a lovely new tutorial with you guys!

Antique Lace Bracelet Tutorial

I recently got a package of the most gorgeous lace and antique charms from Wholeport and I knew right away what I'm going to do with them. Here's an easy peasy picture tutorial for you guys.
List of all the products used at the end of the post. Enjoy!

What's great about this bracelet is that it can be personalized with any photo. Think about the endless possibilities, mother's day, gift for grandma..etc.
You can also use leather or cord instead of lace so this bracelet can be tweaked in so many ways!

I'm Alive!

Just a quickie to inform you all my crafty friends that I'm still there!
If you've been watching the news for the last couple of weeks you'd probably know by now how overwhelming things here in Egypt are.
I just wanted to tell you guys that I'm safe and sound but blogging is by no chance a priority right now. 

Hope you guys are having a great time.
