Flower Time

Hello and a big hurrah as we welcome March in, Spring is really on the way now. As it is the first of the month we have a new challenge starting at Buckwell's Crafty Challenge.  We want to see flowers!!

Lots of flowers here lol!  I have used Coco very kindly given to us by our sponsors this month:


A Little Digi Heaven, thank you.

The papers are all digital and available here from Buckwells. I used Micro Dots, Its Stripes and Funky Flowers.  The gorgeous ribbon is 10 mm double sided ribbon available here from Buckwells.  Those pretty flowers are Cosmos and Sweetheart Blossoms which are available here, I coloured the Cosmos with my Copics and added some Stickles.

Please check the challenge out here for all the details of the prizes as I am scheduling this and not sure of what exactly the prize is - I will try to edit this when I get back (if I remember!).

Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments, each one is very much appreciated.

Delightful Thursday

A scheduled post from me today as I am in Spain with a friend at her house so apologies for not getting around to visit you as there will not be any WIFI.

Over at Digital Delights it is time for the DT to showcase some of the wonderful images available at the shop, here is my contribution:

I have used an image called Crab which is available here.  I coloured the image with my Copics and went for a fairly simple design using my Dienamics Blueprints 20 - did I say I think I'm getting addicted to these now I am forcing myself to use them? The sentiment is available here. The card stock is from Papermill Direct.

Please go over to the blog and have a look at the rest of the DT's wonderful creations.

Thank you so much for looking and your lovely comments. I will catch up with you all on my return!

Glamour Puss

Hello and a big welcome - thank you so much for calling by! I really don't know where the weeks are flying to, Wednesday already!  This means we have a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and this week the theme is "Animal Magic".  Here is my card:

I just love this image, so typical of a cat.  Its called Oh My and is available from The Paper Shelter shop here.  I coloured the image with my Copics and the papers are digital, Gina Jane 'Roses'.  I matted the image on a Cheery Lynn doily die and the flower is also a Cheery Lynn die, Large Rose.  The sentiment is from a Crafter's Companion set.  I finally got some feather dies I have been wanting some for a while so I just had to use them.

As usual there is a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:

Please go and have a peek at The Paper Shelter Blog for some more inspiration from the Design Team.

Iris Garden

Hello there and a big welcome to my blog! Thank you so much for calling by and also the lovely comments you leave.  I am back from London quite exhausted after playing Pirates, rugby and running races lol!! Boys never seem to want to just sit down and colour!

Onto my card today its is from the new releases at Beccy's called Iris Garden:

Now I don't know what my camera was playing at but all the purples do match on the card its just that the camera, which supposedly never lies, decided to show them all as different!  The Papers are Nitwits and I have used the sentiment that comes with the set.  For my card base I used Cheery Lynn Reflections Mini Pearl Square Mega Doily (quite a mouthful).  I cut the image out with Dienamics Stitched Rectangles and used Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangles to mat.  The sentiment was cut and matted using Dienamics Fishtail Stax.  Ribbon and flower from my stash.

Challenges I would like to enter:

ABC - D is for Diecuts
Creative Craft Cottages - In the Garden

Well that's all from me for today. Thank you so much for looking and have a wonderful day!

Delightful Thursday

Hello there and thank you so much for your lovely comments yesterday.  Yes I had to tidy up again after Rowan had left - everything out of the cupboards and gorgeous little sticky fingerprints everywhere!! I am off down to London tomorrow to see my two other bundles of gorgeousness I can't wait. I am going by train this time as I don't really like long drives on the motorway in the dark and I also worry in case it snows so I go by train in the winter.  Got my first class ticket all booked, its great if you book in advance and I have my 'senior' railcard so get 30% off I got a real bargain. Just have to hope there aren't any leaves on the track lol!

Today is time for another Delightful Thursday where the DT over on the Digital Delights Blog showcase some of the fabulous images Wendy has to offer in her store:

I used Hearty Fish available here and she is half price at the moment! I printed her out twice, flipping one of the images (get me with my flipping, that's about the most technical thing I can do on the computer).  I coloured them with Copics.  The sentiment is from the Licence Plate Love Sentiment Set which is available here and that, too, is reduced! The papers are Nitwits Love Struck.  The little hearts are from Impression Obsession covered with Glamour Dust.  I also put Glamour Dust all around the edge of the mat underneath the image, I am so in love with Glamour Dust at the moment the sparkle on it is so beautiful! I used Dienamics Photo Corners, Pierced Oval and Oval Stax.  The little pearl hearts are from The Hobby House. Again, I followed a sketch this time from Sketchy Colors.

Please have a look at the Digital Delights Blog because the DT are so very talented and have loads of inspiration there for you to mooch over.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Sketchy Colors - Sketch
Glitter n Sparkle - Love is in the Air
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes with Love
Creative Card Crew - Glitter (loads of Glamour Dust on)
Digi Chooseday - Love is in the Air
