Delightful Thursday

Its time for another Delightful Thursday over on the Digital Delights Blog when the DT showcase some of the fabulous images available at the Digital Delights Store.  This week I am using this little cutie called Flippity Felicia available here.

I coloured Felicia with my Copics and cut her out.  The papers are Echo Park here and now.  I used Spellbinders embossing folder, Oval and Beaded Oval dies, Dienamics Photo Corners and Joy Crafts Feather die.  The ticket sentiment is also from Digital Delights and is available here.

Thank you so much for looking and for the lovely comments and continued support. Sorry I am such a bad blogger at the moment but I am still trying to sort a lot of things out! Big hugs and

Bollywood Princess

Hello and thank you all for your wonderful comments welcoming be back into the blogging community and what a wonderful one it is too!! You are all so kind words really fail me, its so funny as I feel I know you all so well yet we have never met!

Well onto my card today which is made for Digital Delights Blog for Delightful Thursday which gives the DT a chance to work with some of Wendy's fabulous images.  As it was the new release last week I have made a card using the new release image I was given to work with, and what a delight she is!

Now this is the first time I have tried to colour Asian skin and it didn't help because one of my Copics decided to go 'sticky' on me! Actually IRL it looks slightly better the editing seems to have highlighted the mess I made lol!  Anyways the image is called Princes Simi and is available here.  As I mentioned I coloured her with Copics and cut and matted her using Spellbinders Grand Nesties.  I printed the sentiment straight onto the paper.  The sentiment comes from the Happily Ever After Set which is available here.  The papers are digital from DDE Damask.  The border is Cheery Lynn Anastasia.  Now I painted all the gold bits on the image and the mat and border with Twinkling H2O in irredescent gold which looks lovely IRL but the camera has not picked it up well.

Have a hop over to the Digital Delights Blog to see the rest of the DTs work they are a very talented team!!

Need to come back and do some!

Have a great day and thank you so much for calling by today!

Delightful Thursday (Late)

I am hoping normal service will return soon and promise to catch up with you all I hope you can bear with me a while longer xxx

Slumber Party

A big welcome to my blog and thank you for calling by!  I had a wonderful and exhausting time in London with my two Grandsons.  Back home to a very wild and windy Blackpool.  It was so windy during the night I got up a few times to make sure everything was still intact!

I have my last card as part of Beccy's Place Design Team, my that six months has flown by!  I would like to thank Beccy for having me on the team and giving me the chance to work with her fabulous images.  My card is from the new Sleepover Set which is available here.

I coloured the image with my Copics and used Victorian Velvet DI whilst it was still in the Spellbinders Oval Die.  The papers are Nitwits Bumbleberry.  I used Spellbinders Lacy Ovals to mat the image, Dienamics Fishtail Stax and Memory Box Precious Stars.  The border was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. 

Please go over to Beccy's Place and see what the rest of the DT have done with this fun set.
