Anyone for Bingo?

Good evening

Wow get me, two posts in one day - it's unheard of. 

I saw that the challenge over at Papertake Weekly was Bingo and having never done a challenge like this before fancied having a go.  You had to choose three in a row from the following:

I decided to go for the top row - Gems (Pearls), Die Cuts (Magnolia Doohickeys Fence Die and Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eighteen) and Flowers (Carnation and Roses by Wild Orchid Crafts).  This is the end result. 

I combined this challenge with the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Easter Eggstravaganza and used the stamp 'A Basketfull' which was coloured with Copic pens.  The paper is Spring Drop by First Edition. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate your comments.

Teddy Flower


Well that's another weekend just flown over, but what lovely weather we've had - hope its been the same wherever you are. 

My card today is for the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge and this week its a sketch by Jacque.

and here's my take on it

I have used Teddy Flower by LOTV and the papers are from the Daisy and Dandelion Collection by Do Crafts.  The flower embellishments are from the Blue/White Tone Bloom set available from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Butterflies and Fairies


Hope you are all having a good week.  I, like many other crafters, spent last Saturday at Harrogate at the GNPE show and did treat myself to one or two "essential" purchases!!

Today's card is for the challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies which is "Butterflies and Fairies".  I saw some examples of this shape on the Whichcraft stand at Harrogate and decided to have a go and here is my attempt.

The image is Cake Glorious Cake by LOTV which I have coloured with Copic pens and cut out using Spellbinders Nestabilities.  The paper is Wonderland - Magical Moments by Dream Street Papers which has been matted onto Bazzil card then onto a folded scallop shape.  A pack of scallop shapes, in various sizes, is available from Whichcraft.  The seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The silver butterfly and 'happy birthday' sentiment are from my craft stash.

Tatty Teddy

Good evening,

This will be a brief post to show the card I made tonight.  Over at Papertake Weekly the challenge was 'Anything Goes, with the option of Shrink Plastic.  Well its been a while since I played with Shrink Plastic so I thought I would have a play.  The little tag has been cut using a Marianne die, stamped with a LOTV sentiment stamp then shrunk.  I am quite please with the result.

The image 'Tatty Teddy' has been coloured using Copic pens and matted onto papers from Up Up and Away by First Edition.  Embellishments are minimal - just ribbon and rhinestones from my stash.

Ribbon and Lace

Good evening

Don’t know about you, but this weekend has just flown over.  It’s been a nice sunny day where I live in Northumberland – hope it’s been the same where you are.

I did manage to find time to get my card finished for this week’s challenge over at Lili’s LittleFairies.  The theme this week is Ribbon and Lace and for my card I used the stamp Mirror Mirror from LOTV.  The image has been coloured with Copic pens (Skin - E21, E00, E000, R30; Dress & Shoes – B01, B00, B000; Hair & Mirror – E57, E53, E51, E50).  I also coloured  the ribbon with B01 to match the image.

The background paper is from the NitwitivityCollection by Nitwits.   

On visiting various blogs I noticed that some cards included some form of stitching which I quite liked so I thought I would give it a go.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the brad, rhinestones and lace are from my craft stash.

I would like to enter the following challenge:

Take care and have a great week.

Tilda with Hawaii Flower

Good morning,
Can’t believe it’s Sunday already, these weekends just whizz by.  It seems ages since I posted a card, but found time to play yesterday evening and came up with this card.

I have used Tilda with Hawaii Flower (Butterfly Dreams 2011 Collection) which has been coloured with Copics.  Inspiration for the design has been taken from the Papertake Weekly Challenge (working with a sketch by Dawny P) and Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge (White plus 1).

The papers are Thimble & Thread from Nitwits and the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts (Gardenia, Carnation, Tulips, Aster Daisy, Rose Buds and Seam Binding).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I hope you have a good Sunday and thank you for your comments – I really appreciate them.

Take care

To accept the award you must:

1.    Link back to the person's blog who gave it to you and thank them.

4.    Leave a comment on the five blogs you chose to let them know that they have been awarded the Liebster Award.

Now choosing five blogs was difficult as there are so many excellent blogs out there all full of inspiration, but after much thought the five blogs I thing deserves the aware are.
