Spring is in the air at By The Cute and Girly
Well This is a bit of a bitter sweet post for me today! Firstly it is a new month, so it is time for a new challenge over at By The Cute and Girly This month the challenge of "spring is in the air" has been set by Brenda and as always there are some fab prizes on offer so its well worth entering to be in with the chance to win.
However this will also be my last post as a member of the BTC&G design Team. I have been having long discussions with my hubby about blogland e.c.t...and he feels I spend so much time blogging that I don't seem to enjoy crafting the same.....and that is my first love! and so I have decided to take a step back from everything for the moment. I am not going to disappear altogether but I will not be in blogland as often as I am at the mo. I couldn't disappear completely, none of my friends understand my love of paper, pens, images e.c.t....or get that excited over finished cards so it is nice to share with people that have the same passion for crafting as I do.
So for the moment I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Jane who gave me this fab opportunity and all the girls that I have worked along side. I am really going to miss it...and I have really loved being on the team. As you will be aware BTC&G has had a DT call....so I want to wish all of you that entered the best of luck!
So now onto my cards:
This card was made...again using the free images I downloaded from Colouring pages I have coloured the image using my copics. I have raised the little girl using silicone glue unfortunately it seeped through a little and so I have covered everything in stickles to try and disguise it! hence the chick with a glittery green head!!!
I have gone for the distressed look, as It is one I love but I am never that happy when I do it, so feel I have to keep practicing...I have done some faux stitching....the glittery swirls are double sided peel offs
This I have made using my brand new lilli of the Vally stamp...the papers are once again from my scrap pile...I will hazard a guess that they are "Daisy D"
the image I have coloured using my copics....as are the little pearls that I coloured in to match (I know I am a little slow...but I have only just discovered I could do that!...........oh the possibilities!)
Finally I have this little notepad.....I got a pack of 8 little notepads from poundland....so they literally cost pennys...I have covered it in some K&Co paper....the image is "Jolly Nation" and I have finished off with buttons and fibres....(I am well into buttons at the mo!)
Anyway that's me for today...once again thanks for looking!
