Spring Birthday!

Hello again!

I managed some time in my craft room yesterday and I had coloured up this new LOTV image which I just adore.  LOTV images are becoming more and more my favourite stamps ... I just love them!  This post is a little photo heavy but I don't often have the time to take more than 1 photo so I enjoyed a little more play time with my camera!!

This sweetie is coloured up with my copics and I sponged the background with Stormy Sky distress ink.  The gorgeous papers are from MME So Sophie.  I just love this pinky purple plum colour ... isn't it divine!  I actually even pulled out my sewing machine for this card - I'd forgotten just what a fabulous finishing touch it adds to the card.  Must find more time to do it more!  I haven't followed any particular sketch but everything seemed to fall into place nicely like this.  The doily, ribbon, lace, pearls & flowers are all from stash.  The sentiment is SU! and the button and twine are also from stash.

Here's a view of the finished inside - very simple but elegant.  The embossed butterfly is an SU! embosslits die/embossing folder - love it!  

A side angle view of the card showing some of the dimension and the finished inside too.

A close-up of the coloured image.  Copic colours used are:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27
Clothes: R59, R81, R83, R85
Dog/Dirt: E30, E33, E34, E35, E37
Grass: G63, G67

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges this week:-

Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Ribbon, Buttons & Bows
Paper Sundaes - Sundae Bar (lace, die cuts (nesties circles, butterflies)
Allsorts Challenge - Colour Bingo (Green/Ribbon or Lace/Pink)
Totally Papercrafts - Bingo (Flowers/Lace/Pink)

Thanks again for stopping by for a visit today.  I always appreciate the time you take to leave a comment.   I hope you're all enjoying a wonderful day!

Just for You ...

Hello peeps!

I have a card to share that I had made a couple of weeks ago and I'm just getting round to posting it now!  Tilda is coloured with copics and trimmed out with a nestabilities oval.  The layout and papers are very simple - the pink panel is embossed with a very sweet butterfly folder.  The bits of lace are from some lace trim and the flowers are from stash.

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:-

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Spring is in the Air
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Use your favourite tool (cuttlebug to emboss & die cut)

Well that's all for today folks!  It's going to be a bit of a dreary day here for Easter Monday so I'm going to head on down to my craft room for a little bit and see what my mojo can come up with!  I hope you all enjoy a wonderful day ... and many thanks for your visits here.  A welcome to my new followers too - I hope you're enjoying my creations!

Some more Kinder Egg holders

Hi there!

Well I have some more Kinder Egg holders to show you.  I finally finished the 17 I had on order and here are just a few of them.  All the images are coloured with copics.  They all turned out really well and the recipients were very happy (that's the main thing right?!).  I do have a few more to make this weekend but they are for personal friends of mine - such a nice little token Easter gift.

Well, I see there are still a few challenges around that I can enter these in for so here goes:-

Cute Card Thursday - I want Candy (they hold a Kinder egg)

Thanks for stopping in today.  The sun is shining here so I hope I can get out enjoy it with the kids for a bit.  Now I'm off for a singing practice for Easter Sunday Mass ... geez, life never seems to slow down does it, LOL!!!  Have a great day everyone!

Welcome April - a calendar page!

Hi again!

Happy April Fool's Day to you all - I hope you didn't get fooled!  haha

Well, here is my calendar page for the new month of April.  I wanted to do something related to Spring/Easter and had this sweet uninked Tilda in amongst my stamps.  It's a very simple layout as I chose the gorgeous BG Wisteria paper for the background and it's a scene in itself!  I cut Tilda out and placed her on some purple gingham ribbon and added some die cut butterflies (SU!) and a small cherry blossom and swirl.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek!  Make sure you pop on over to the lovely Christine's blog here as she always does the most beautiful calendar pages too!

I'm going to enter this into a couple of challenges:-

Paper Sundaes - Happy Easter
Basic Grey Challenges - Easter (I used BG Wisteria paper)

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday - I'm back to colouring more images for my 17 Easter Egg holders that I'm making .... 7 down 10 more to go, LOL!!!
