Daisy Shower

Good evening

Have you enjoyed this Bank Holiday?  The weather has been a disappointment, dull and wet but it hasn't spoilt my day which was spent crafting. 

I've made the card below for two challenges - Papertake Weekly Challenge and Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  The Papertake Weekly theme was Pins and Needles where you needed to include either some stitching or some pins (or both) somewhere on your card.  For the Penny Black Saturday Challenge you had to use two different Penny Black images.

And this is what I came up with.

The images are "Shower of Flowers" and "Rainin' Daisies" both by Penny Black which have been coloured using Copic pens.  The background paper is from my pile of scrap paper and has been stitched around the outside.  Unfortunately you cannot see the stitching very well in the photo. 

The roses, carnation and hellebore flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The pin is from the Ribbon Girl and the ladybird I picked up at the Harrogate Craft Show earlier this year  

The sentiment is by LOTV and that has been cut and matted with Nesties.  The corner die is Whimsy.

I would like to entre the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Pins & Needles
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Double the Trouble

I'm off now to put the finishing touches to my son's birthday card.  His birthday is on Wednesday, but it's been difficult making his card when he's around - I've had to wait until he goes upstairs to bed!

Take care and have a good week.

Good Afternoon

Hope you are enjoying this sunny Saturday afternoon. 

Well its back to work for me on Monday following my two and a bit weeks holiday, sob sob!  I've had a lovely time off but it's gone over far too quickly.  We did manage to get away for a few days down to Hertfordshire.  Whilst there we visited the Harry Potter Studio Tour at Watford and had a fantastic time - well worth a visit if you like Harry Potter.   
Anyway onto my card for today.  It's another Christmas Card which features the Penny Black image Exhilarating. 

The image has been coloured with Copic pens. 

The background papers are from My Minds Eye. 

Nestibilities (Classic Scalloped Circles and Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles) have been used to cut and mat the image.  Die cut snowflakes, which I covered with glitter, have been added as an embellishment.  The pom pom and trim on the hedgie's hat and glove have also been covered in glitter which I purchased at the NEC last year.   (Not sure of its technical name but it was decribed to me as "hairy glitter"!!).

Flower soft has been added under the ski to give the impression of snow.  The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.  The ribbon and rhinestones are from my craft box. 

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

Winter Wonderland Challenge - It's Winter Sports
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Animal Antics
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Spots 'n' Strips

Thank you for all your lovely comments and to my new followers.

All Wrapped Up


Hope everyone is keeping well.  The rain has unfortunately made a re-appearance here in the last few days along with thunder and lightening!!

Tonight I have another Christmas card to share with you.  The image is All Wrapped Up by LOTV. 

I have coloured the image using Copic pens with a touch of pencil.  Her hand muff has been glittered along with the ground by her feet.  The background paper is from Let it Snow by Dovecraft.

A memory box die (Biance Snowflake) has been used for the snowflake embellishment.  The ribbon, lace and rhinestones are from my craft box.    
I've also decorated the inside of the card to match the front.

Apologies for the rubbish photos - still trying to perfect the art of taking good photos. 

I would like to enter the following challenges

Winter Wonderland : Ribbon and Lace
ABC Christmas Challenge : O for Open It Up
Lili's Little Fairies : Christmas in July

Have a good week.

Three Little Bears

Good evening

Are you enjoying the Olympics so far?  I am and have watched some sports for the first time like volley ball and beach volley ball.  While watching the swimming last night I made this card. 

I love all the LOTV stamps, but this stamp (Posy Trio) has to be one of my favourites as it's so versatle.  I have coloured the image with Copic pens and added a touch of pencil. 
It's been ages since I used a DL size card, but I thought this image would look good on it.  The paper I have had for ages (sorry don't remember what it's called) and its been layed onto some Bazzil cardstock.  A x-cut punch has been used along one side. 

I've embellished the card with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts (Cherry Blossom, Sweetheart Blossom and Roses), rhinestones and punched butterflies.  In the centre of the stamped flowers I have put very small rhinestones. 

The sentiment is from Craftwork cards. 

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

Wild Orchid Crafts : Challenge 55 - Round in Circles
Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge : Challenge #13 - Anything Goes

Hope the rest of the week is good for you.
