First Kiss!

Morning all, hope you're all having a good day so far.  Its beautiful down here on the south coast, crisp but not a cloud in the sky, bet you anything it doesn't last till the wedding on Saturday though!

I have a Sarah Kay card to share with you today and the image is an older one called First Kiss and its one of my faves I think its so sweet.

Quite a simple card really not much fuss on this one.  Papers are Penny Lane from My Mind's Eye and I so love these, beautiful colours with a little sparkle mmmm!  Image is coloured with copics, ribbon is from stash and of course blooms from WOC.

Okay thats it from me for now, thanks for popping in and I do appreciate every single comment I receive, thank you guys.  Happy crafting, take care

Sweet Bunny Tilda

Hi all not long now and the weekend will be upon us.  Lets hope the weather here stays as it has been the past couple of days - a little on the chilly side but so bright and cheery so you can see all the signs of spring its so pretty. 

Anyway, just thought I would share with you a little something I have made these past couple of days.  It was one of those where I just kept going back to it and adding a little more so yes its a little busy this one but I kinda like it that way.  

I went with a bit of a purple theme to this one.   Tried out my new Magnolia swirl and would you believe I have had this since Crimbo and only just used it.  Again my MS scroll heart punch has been used as has my MS heart button punch and I've glittered the butterfly to within an inch of its life!!!  A little side view piccie to show you next

Okay so all the details of what I have used.  Lets start with the obvious Maggie stamp which I just adore as I think it can be used for both Easter and baby stuff.   Coloured with copics and prismas.  Splendiferous blooms are of course from WOC and I've sprayed them with pearl glimmermist.  Papers are Prima 'Sweet Fairy' and are gorgeous.  Crystal ball gem thingies in with the flowers are actually from the artificial flower section in my local Wilkinsons and the whole spray (and it was wired) was around £2.50 and I'm not kidding you there must be at least 50 on there.  Oh and I used the fab sketch from Friday Sketchers but being me I've missed the deadline for it.

Okay, before I go I would like to enter this into the Creative Inspirations challenge which is 'In the garden'.  Well I won't find a Tilda in the garden but we do get a fair few butterflies and some pretty blooms (well thats before I manage to kill them all).  Not really green fingered me but I give it a go!

Catch ya  later peeps, take care and happy crafting.

A box/easel card for a wedding

Hello everyone, happy Tuesday to you. Hope you all had a fab weekend. I was nursing a slight (very slight NOT he he) hangover on Saturday as it was my sister's hen night on the Friday and we went to a place called Rubyz for a meal with entertainment! Now I had never been here before and the entertainment was a drag act and I tell you I have never laughed so much in my life its was brilliant.
Anyway, I've popped on here as I wanted to show you a card/box I was asked to make for a wedding my aunt was going to in South Africa. The only request was to use 'spicy' colours and this is what I came up with. The orange flowers look a tad brighter in the photo than they actually were but hey ho thats my photography skills for you!.

As usual the hair and suit was coloured with copics, the dress was paper pieced on to some pearl paper and ran through the cuttlebug with my dotty embossing folder. My MS doily punch had an outing and I used my new Magnolia dragonfly die - just love this and I added some clear gems to it for a little sparkle.

As usual all the flowers are from WOC (and have you seen the new Trellis roses that are on the website at the mo - mmmm they're so gorgeous gonna have to have some of those!). The string of pearls I've added around the edge are from stash which I've had for ages.
I think thats about it for now. I would like to enter my card into the following challenges. Thank you.
Papertake Weekly - anything goes (added option of something old)
Stamp Something - flowers
Wild Orchid Crafts - anything goes
Catch ya later folks, the kids are due home soon and I have done absolutely no housework - slapped wristies me thinks!!.
Take care.
