Lilli Of the Valley at Sunset

Hello All,

I have managed to get into blogland a little today, I am trying my best to catch up with you all .... I will get there, although it may take a little time!

I have been watching Nicki from Polkadoodles, on create and craft, and I am always so impressed with the way she creates skies and backgrounds using her promarkers. I just really wanted to give it a try, although I have used my copics. Its my first attempt and I think it is a little ropey but I quite like the way it turned out ... Its definitely a technique that I will be trying out again! As I liked the way the picture turned out I decided to keep the card quite simple so it would stand out more.

Thank You Leah

Hello All,

I have been a very fortunate girl this past week or so ....... This lovely little bundle of goodies came through my door, from the lovely Leah ....... I cant wait to make up that blackboard scrapbook!!!! .....

For the moment I have made a card using the lovely "cosmo cricket" stack of papers she sent, and I have used one of the latest Manga's available from Sugar Nellie, which you can get here I do adore this image ....... My Mum had a big trunk of old clothes that my sister and I used to play dress up with and have hours of fun, and this image reminded me of that ..... I kind of wanted to put lots of different colours together in the one outfit, because when we were playing, the more miss matched the better!!!! The sentiment and the flowers round the edge are some "Anna Griffin" stickers that my Auntie bought me for my wedding anniversary.

Thank You Tammi

Hello All,

I was so lucky to win a some lovely candy from Tammi .... I was so excited to receive my lovely little parcel of beautifully stamped Tilda images. Due to the lack of crafting and blogging time I have at the mo it has taken me to a while to have a little play.....

I adore this little sweetie, and I have loved colouring her with my copics. I am slightly obsessed with these shaped cards from craftwork cards at the mo, as you may have noticed ..... and I am kind of sticking to the same layout so I must look at doing something new!! ..... the paper is from " echo park paper " .... I have gone a little overboard with the sparkle, I have mica powder spritzed over everything, stickles and glitter card.

Once again I need to apologise for the dodgy lighting of my card !!

More Girly cards....

Hello All,

I have a couple more cards ...... I dont often show cards I have made where I have not done any stamping ...... To be honest I mostly do stamping, however sometime I end up buying various kits because I fall in love with an image, or I have stuff from forever ago that needs using up .... However toppers as a quick card never seems to work for me, by the time I add inking. embossing, stitching e.c.t it seems to take me just as long.

This card uses an image from "Hunkydory" and the papers are " Hunkydory" & "My Minds Eye" all the edges have been inked with "Distress ink - spun sugar" I have then added a swirl made from glitter card, a few flowers and pearls, and some stitching detail.

For this one I have to firstly apologise for the dogy photo - I am having problems with the loss of my crafting light!!

I have used a " Hunkdory" decoupage sheet. The card blank is from "craftwork cards" I have covered with paper from " My Minds eye" The edges have been colour tinted with "Distress ink - spun sugar" and I have also embossed them using " Heat it Up - enchanted gold" then I have finished off with a swirl made from glitter card some pearls and ribbon.
