Favourite Embellishments

Hi Peeps,

Are you impressed, my third card in a row, lol.  Mind you my mojo has gone AWOL, if found please return by the weekend as I have lots to get done, thanks.

My card today is my DT card for Crafts and Me and it's challenge time with a theme of "favourite embellishments".  My god for me that's all of them, lol.

I have used the Classic Couple by the Stampsmith from Crafts and Me.  I think this is a great stamp for Romance, Wedding, Valentines and Anniversary, so versatile.

I'll be back on Friday and hopefully get round to visiting your blogs over the next couple of days.

Funky Boots

Morning Peeps,

Hope you all had a great weekend.  I finally got round to picking up some tiles for the kitchen, you never know it might be finished by Christmas, lol.  I also did a little more tidying in my craftroom since my dear Hubby put together my last craft unit, now everything has it's place.  Just needs decorating.

Today is my DT card for Live and Love Crafts, you know how much I love that store, and the theme for us DT Girlies this week is charms.  Sandy has listed loads, and I mean loads of new charms, they are all so different.  I chose to use the boot, it's so funky and with my Daughter's 21st looming I thought it would go well with these Make It Crafty City 60's Girls.  I can't see them listed in rubber yet but you can certainly get them in digi HERE.

I masked the girls onto Stamping Linen. It takes a bit of getting used to as it's harder to blend the colours. I'm also suffering with my right arm, according to the Nurse I have RSI, Repetitive strain injury.  It's really painful so I haven't crafted as much this week.  If it doesn't improve in 10 days I may have to wear a splint and I'm sure that won't be any good for colouring :(

 I cut the Marianne Design clock out and added some little pompom trim, so cute.

And here's the charm, well it's quite large for a charm, but isn't it funky? Of course I added some Gesso.

Thanks for popping by.  Click on the pictures below to take you direct to the products in store.

Portrait of Ophelia

Morning Peeps,

Yayyyy, it's Friday. Always love Fridays, well especially at 4pm when I finish work.  Apart from the housework my weekend is my own and I hope to get some creating done.  

My card for you today is using the beautiful new Jasmine Beckitt-Griffiths stamp called "Portrait of Ophelia" available at Crafts and Me and coloured with my the BG group of Copic markers, love these colours.

The pink pleated ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl, from a recent win, lucky me.

The cheesecloth and white mesh are available from LLC, oh my god the embellies here are my utmost favourite.

My second card was coloured with distress inks and not one of my best I have to say.

 Again the cream pleated ribbon was from the Ribbon Girl as well as the lace at the bottom of the card.  
The chipboard flourishes are from Make It Crafty and coloured with walnut stain distress ink. Gorgeous papers are by Pion silent night 6 x 6 collection. 

Thanks for looking today.  I wish you all a fabulous weekend.

Memory Problems?

Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all keeping warm if you are affected by the cold spell of weather we are currently having.  I am leaving the house with my scarf, woolly hat and gloves, minus one finger nail..... Ollie nicked my gloves off the table and wasn't happy until he had chewed a thumbnails worth off, and this was the second time he had done this and my second pair of leather gloves.  I had my first pair for some time and they were quite expensive, £40, and I still couldn't put them in the bin.  My newest pair Hubby got me from Asda but they were just about moulding to my hands. Grrrrrrrrr.  When will this puppy, stop.... mind you he's 19 months now, but Bichon's never grow up do they........

Yesterday when I was checking the forecast there was no more snow predicted.  Great!  Still the temperatues were predicted to be -4 with the worst -8 by Thursday, brrrrr.  When I checked last night it was all about turn and more snow for today, grrrrrrrrrr. Please no more snow........

My card today is far from snow.  I have used one of the new High Hopes images Online Olive coupled with a High Hopes memory sentiment.  I'm sure there are a few of us out there that this would be suited to, lol.

New prima buttons.

A close up of the sentiment.

Keep warm.

Vintage Calendar

Hi Peeps,

Brrrrrrrr. It's blooming freezing and the snow just fell out of the sky all day yesterday, so I am certainly not looking forward to driving to work this morning.

This is my DT project for Live and Love Crafts and the theme that us girlies are following this week is Anything but square.  After seeing so many beautiful calendars in blogland and having never made one before I thought I would challenge myself.  I already had a woodware clipbaord which I bought sometime back, so this was my starting point.

I'm loving the colour combo of blue and cream at the moment, but blue is believe it or not my favourite colour, soo gorgeous and perfect for vintage.

Lots of piccies, and the links to the products used are all listed at the bottom of the page.

Here's a close up of the image which is from Grandma's Attic Romance sheet by Pion Designs and you can clearly see the gorgeous LLC lace with dalmante's framing the image, isn't it beautiful and even more so IRL.

 The string pearls cascading down the right hand side.

Here you can see the crackle paint doing it's stuff and the gorgeous vintage brad on the top left and the the cute little love hanger and a semi circle of the lovely lace doilies.

Here you can see the Family light bulb, just awesome and the gorgeous arrangement of fours all coated in white gesso and one of the new charms, clock with swallow.  Have you checked out all the new charms at the LLC store, wow.

Another flroal arrangement with a wooden butterfly coated in distress crackle paint and a Tim Holtz nib added to the centre.

I look forward to reading your comments as always and thanks for popping by.

Love Grows

Hi Peeps,

Brrrr, were in minus temperatures and the snow is still with us. Wish I could stay at home :(

My card today is my DT card for the Copic Marker Europe blog, and boy this is certainly one team of talented ladies.  I was also asked by my teamie Franz to guest for Deep Ocean Challenge and of course I said yes, another very talented team.  The theme at DOC is anything but square.  Now today is also challenge day over at Marianne Design Divas with a theme of flags/banners, so my card fits all 3. Phew, got there in the end!

The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp that has been in my collection for dare I say a couple of years.  You know how it is when you just have to have a stamp even if it has to wait its turn to be inked, lol.

The base of the card has been cut out with a Go Kreate Die. The gorgeous papers are by Pion and I chose to colour in monotones.  I have used the Warm Grey family, just love these markers.

Here's another picture with the tag taken out.

All edges have been distressed with walnut stain distress inks and a little dashing of Snow Tex.

Copics Used:- W7, W5, W3, W1, W00
