It's Party Time

Good evening folks

Hope you are all well.  Hasn't the weather been lovely - I could get used to blue skies and sun. 

Today's card is for the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge.  The theme this week is Anything but a Square and I have attempted a Diamond Spring Card and here it is:

I have used the image Party Girl by LOTV which has been coloured with Copic pens with a touch of prima pencils.  The paper is by Nitwits (Bumbleberry Cottage). 

The card has been embellished with flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbon and pearls are from my craft stash and the crown and small heart on the balloon have had the glitter treatment! 

I would like to enter the following challenge:

Thank you for looking. 

Have a good week.

Bear Essentials

Good evening

Hope you have had a good Sunday and the weather has been good where you are.  It's been lovely here with blue sky and sun all day - it makes a welcome change.  Hubby even managed to get into the garden and cut the grass!

I was fortunate to get this stamp (Patchwork Bunch of Balloons) at the recent Open Weekend held at LOTV.  Isn't he gorgeous.

I have coloured him with Copic pens and prisma pencils.  The papers are from the 'Cupcakes' collection by Craftwork Cards. 

The balloons were cut from Core'dination Cardstock using a Sizzix die 'Medium Balloons'.  The border running across the card is a Martha Stewart punch 'Zig Zag'.   The ribbon and rhinestones are from my craft stash.

Have a good week.

Everything Is Coming Up Rosy

Good evening (just),

Hope you are well this evening. 

For today's card  I have used another Penny Black image called  "Rosy" which has been coloured with Copic pens and teamed with some lovely papers by First Edition "Love Letters".  The swirls were cut using a Sizzix die and the corners from the 'Corner Die Set' by Whimsy Stamps.      

The flowers are from Wild Orchrid Crafts and the rhinestones are from my craft stash. 

The sentiment is one of the new releases from LOTV.

Hope the rest of the week is good and thanks for all your comments - they are very much appreciated.

Milly and Friend


Well that's Sunday and the weekend over again!  I hope you have all had a good weekend.  We  had family over for Sunday lunch then the 'boys' (by that I mean my husband, son and Dad) watched the football match which involved quite a bit of shouting at the TV screen!! 

I finally finished the card I started yesterday.  The image is one of the LOTV girl stamps 'Milly Me and My Dog' (isn't that dog soo cute!).  I coloured the image with Copic pens and attempted to do a sky background, for which I have to thank Bev Rochester for the inspiration and technique.   (A video tutorial showing how to create this effect is available on Bev's blog 'All the Things I Love').   For a first attempt it's so so, but more practice is needed me thinks!! 

The fence is a Magnolia die and the branch is a Sizzix die.  The blossom flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the background paper is from Nitwits.

I would like to enter this card into the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Your Favourite Craft Tool (Big Shot).    

Hope you have a good week.

It's Raining Daisies

Good Afternoon

Firstly apologies for my lack of posting and blogging, but I have suffered a family breavement.

Today's card features one of my favourites images from Penny Black called "Rainin' Daisies".  Unfortunately the daisies in my garden have been rather battered lately with all the rain we have had.

I followed the Case It Challenge over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for the style and layout of the card.  The image has been coloured using Copic pens and the papers are from Nitwits "Fairy Tale Too".  The sentiment is one of the new LOTV sentiment stamps.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Dainty Dancer

Hi there

Well today sees the beginning of May and I hope we have better weather than we have had over the last few weeks. 

Today's card is for the challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies.   The challenge this week was to follow a sketch by Jacqui and here is my attempt:

The gorgeous image is Dainty Dancer by LOTV and she has been coloured with Copic pens. 

The papers are Gratitude by Nitwits.

Embellishments include seam binding from the Ribbon Girl, rose and gypsophila from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Rhinestones, brad and spacer are from my craft stash and the cute charm I picked up at Harrogate earlier this year.  

I would like to enter this card into Lili's Little Fairies : Sketch by Jacqui
