Showered with Love

Happy Monday lovely crafty peeps.  I seem to be getting behind with my blogging of late I have a few crafty makes to share with you so today I shall be sharing a little LOTV loveliness.

I grabbed a couple of the newly released Lili of the Valley images the other day and I couldn't resist colouring up this one first.  This is 'Showered with Love' and I've used my Prismacolor pencils for a change.  Not really sure I'm happy with my colouring on this one so lots more practice is needed with the pencils I think.

Anyway, I thought the image would make a perfect valentine's card and I've had these gorgeous papers in my stash for like forever and they just went so well together.  A little ribbon and few pearls and it all came together so easy.

A little close up of the adorable image.  What is it about umbrellas I always love an image with a brolly in it lol, but aren't they just the cutest pair though!

Okay a really quick fly by from me today peeps.  I haven't even got a note for you of the pencils I used.  I did have them written down on a scrap of paper but if you could see my craft room right now you would understand why I can't find it lol!  A job for another day though that one.

So take care folks.  As I said I've got a few more cards to share so I shall be popping in again soon.

Happy crafting.

A little Crafteezee goodness

Happy Monday crafty peeps.  I'm playing catch up with my posts so I'm popping in to share some Crafteezee All Dressed Up love with you today.

I have two cards to show so first up is a card using All Dressed Up 'Have an Ice Birthday' by Crafteezee and she's been coloured with copics to compliment the beautiful ScrapBoys 'Cotton Winter' papers.  I've matted them on to kraft as I love the look it gives with the soft colours of the papers.  All of the Crafteezee goodies I've used on my cards can be found over in the store and I've popped the links at the end of the post for you. 

A little close up of the image ... she's a sweetie pie isn't she and perfect for those winter birthday cards.  She's definitely one of my faves for this time of year.

I cut a kraft swirly vine by using the Lady E swirls die and just popped a few little roses on it.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

All Dressed Up  -  anything goes

Crafty Gals Corner  -  winter fun

Okay so my next card to share is again using an All Dressed Up stamp by Crafteezee.  She is called 'Love to Dance' and I've used a mix of copics and spectrum noir markers to colour her.  I took my colour theme from the delicious Mintay 'old manor' papers and it's not a colour scheme I would normally think of using but oh boy do I love it!

A closer look at the image.  She's beautiful isn't she and so very easy to colour.  I fussy cut her out and raised her up with some 3d glue for a little added dimension.  I stamped the fab sentiment next to her and stamped, coloured and cut out the fab little accessary hearts and raised them up with 3d glue as well.

Just a little touch of lace, pearl trim and some gorgeous ribbon and I was happy my card was complete.

I'd like to enter my second card into the following challenges:-

Love to Craft  -  anything goes

Cardz for Galz  -  haberdashery

Cute Card Thursday  -  embellish it

Okay so that's me all caught up with my Crafteezee DT posts.  I've managed to grab myself a day off today so I was hoping to have a bit of a crafting session but unfortunately after a week back at school my daughter's managed to pick up a stinking cold so she's home bless her and hubby appears to be home for the day too, so I don't think my crafty session is going to go according to plan do you!?!

Take care folks and I'll catch up with you soon.

A Polkadoodles 'Thank you'

Happy Friday crafty peeps.  I hope you are all well and enjoyed a lovely Christmas and New Year.  We had a fab time here, lots of family time and games (we seemed to be hooked on Rummikub this year lol) and good food and lots of naughty sweety things which I shouldn't really have!

So time to return to some semblance of normality.  The kiddies have gone back to school, the decs are sort of half down and I'm back to work.  I always struggle getting back into our routine the first week but I'm getting there albeit slowly lol.

Well as it's Friday, we have our usual new challenge up over of the Polkadoodles Craft Challenge blog.  A little reminder that it's always an 'anything goes' theme for all you peeps and there are fab prizes to be won even for the DT's top 3, how cool is that!  So let me show you my make.  It's a 'Thank you' card using some Polkadoodles Winnie goodness.  She's been cropped to fit my frame and coloured with copics.

Medium:  copics
Sentiment:  Winnie Celebrations 3

A closer look at sweet Winnie next.  I've cropped her down to fit my frame.
