Lets Celebrate

Good Morning,
When I saw the challenge at Time for Tea Designs i just knew I had to enter, I love Time for Tea Designs digi images & would love some of their rubber stamps as well.
I have used a digi called Masquerade ball for this card & I have coloured her up using Copics for her hair & Pro Markers for everything else.
The papers & sentiment are from Lili of the Valley. I have added brads to the bow & flower, I had completely forgotten i had the brads.

I have added stickles to her feathers but you can't really see it on the pics. The base for the card has been cut using my Cameo.
I will be entering this card into Time for Tea Designs April Challenge.
I hope you all have a great day

Happy Birthday Tilda

Afternoon Everyone,

Well we had a lovely sunny day yesterday, sunglasses on & the top down on the car. Today it's been raining more or less all day & it doesn't look like it's going to get much better over the weekend.
Today's card however is a nice bright summery card so hopefully it will perk us up a bit.
I have used Tilda holding flower & have coloured her up with Copic's & Pro Markers, i have added some glamour dust to the flower & bow in her hair.
I have used a few Lili of the Valley products Perfect Pair paper pad, Sentiment Tags & Happy Circular Sentiments.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Magnolia-licious challenge - Anything Goes 
Hope you all have a fab day

April Showers

Good Morning,

Where has the time gone I can't believe its April already & for once the sun is shining but this is the UK so I'm sat patiently awaiting the rain. With that it brings me nicely onto today's challenge at Charisma Cardz & the theme is April Showers. I have used a super cute image from our brilliant sponsor Bugaboo stamps called Deacon rain, I have coloured him up using Pro Markers & i have added some glitter to the rain drops & puddle.

The clouds have been cut using my Silhouette Cameo & the bow has been made using an envelope maker (I learnt how to do this at the NEC show)

All of the papers are from Lili of the valley's Father Knows Best paper pad. I love all of their paper pads & have to admit that i am running out of room for them all.

Now pop on over to the Charisma cardz challenge blog & see what the rest of the DT have come up with & join.

Hope you have a fab day

I is for In a Line

Good Morning,
It's the 1st April (April Fools) and that means it's time for a new challenge at The ABC Challenge. This week its 'I is for In a Line' below is a grid all we want you to do is pick 3 elements but they need to be in a line either vertically, diagonally or horizontally.
I have gone for diagonally so I have added Pearls, Lace & Flowers, the image is from our fab sponsor Sherri Baldy and she is called Cherry Blossom Geisha.

I have coloured her in using Pro Markers & it's the first time I have tried black hair & i do think it has come out rather well. The papers are from a magazine that my Mum buys but they just fitted perfectly with the image.

Pop on over to the ABC Challenge to see what gorgeous creations the rest of the DT have come up with & join in to win the fab prize.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Little Fairies - Add a tag
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Hope you all have a great day
