Hi to you
 all hope you are all having a good day 
I have got house work all done since  my last blog and now just to let you know
Its a new week over at 


To make this card I have used digi stamp from 
DIgi Darla
I made an easel card and coloured my digi in with promarkers then I mat and layered it on to shades of blue card and added some brads 2 chairs umbrella and 2 glasses then  mounted it on to my card 
I made my stopper out of shades of blue card and added some rub down wording 
all that we see or seem 
is but a dream with in a dream 
by Edgar Allan Poe 
I added this to my card with foam pads and last of all I added a wooden button in the shape of a light houses
I like to used shaped buttons and brads rub downs as they can help make a card more interesting in textures and can give a different dimensions to a card 
the DT card 

I would like to enter this card into some challenges 

MY HEARTS PIECES ( button brads rub downs )

Thanks for stopping and looking and commenting 
happy crafting to you all
