Happy Friday Everyone,

I can't believe this is my last GDT for LOTV, time has flown and I have so enjoyed using these cute stamps.  As you know I do love these cuties so it won't be the last you'll be seeing of them don't worry.

I would like to thank all the LOTV followers for all the comments left, and there were loads.  I did start replying but realised quite quickly that I wasn't going to be able to keep up.  So a huge thank you to all those that left comments, I  have read everyone of them.  I would also like to thank Anne for the opportunity, it has been great and I have loved playing with the stamps :)

I have chosen this older stamp, but I love it, could be used for birthdays, spring/summer, and seeing as it's Mother's Day soon and my Mum's birthday in March I thought I would use the opportunity to get ahead of my schedule, just perfect for Mum.

As this is also my DT card for Live and Love Crafts with a theme of carnival, it made me think of candy floss and pink, so I have used some pink in my creation.

I was going to use a watering can as the charm but Sandy has some new charms in and this 3D bucket was just soooo cute I had to use it, anyway the little bear already has a watering can so I bucket would do nicely, don't ya think.

I have stamped another sentiment from the Everyday Set, love these and attached to the flower arrangement on the right.

I have used 3 different papers, starting from the bottom Pion Design A Day in May "Lady, Maya Design Vintage Autumn Basics III and for the top layer Maya Design Vintage Frosts Basics 3rd December (not just for christmas, hahaha), links at the bottom of the post.

Seeing as Jenny Bear is caring for her window box I thought the Prima Junkyard Taps/Kobs with the word "CARE" was perfect for this card.  I have added some hortesania's, 20mm rose and some pink flower spray.

Here's a close up of the little Bucket 3D charm tied to a Magnolia So Wrapped Lovely Tag and finsihed with some Moulin Rouge lace, twine and a 15mm two tone rose and a dashing of gesso.

My artsy photo, lol.  Well a girl has gotta try.

And here's a little re-cap of the Guest Cards that I made for LOTV during February.

Lisbeth with Bird

Hi Everyone,

I have another Little Darlings image to share with you.  Again this was made for CHA at the end of last year when I was struggling to colour with the RSI in my arm, so not my best.  Also, a very clean and simple card for me, lol.

The image is called Lisbeth with Bird and the sentiment added to the little die cut clouds is from the vintage sentiment set Release 1, Vintage Birthday.  The backing paper is from the Petals and Lace 6 x 6 paper pad.

The shape was made using Go Kreate Dies, love these.

This is the first time I have used the cloud die, can't believe I bought it and had forgotten about it, lol.

Copics Used:-
Skin E00, E000, E11, Blush R20
Browns E25, E31, E50, E47
Reds R32, R35, R37, R59

Busy Baking

Hi Everyone,

Today's card is my DT card for LLC and my February GDT card for Lili of the Valley, who today are having a themed Thursday, which is food and drink so my little Apron card has joined them.  My busy baking bear is making cookies and then I think she'll be making some delicious cupcakes, lol.  These stamps are just so darn cute and I do love cuteness :)

I decided to make an Apron Card for this little Busy Baking Bear so I can display her with pride and also a little room for my beloved embellishments.  The papers are by PionDesign A Day in May White Blossom and I made the pocket out of  PionDesign Flower Frames 12x12 Rosa.     .

Here's a close up of this little lady coloured with distress markers.  The butterflies were cut from the Studio of Memories diecut sheet, sooooooooooo love this sheet.

I have used a bark heart at the bottom left and decorated with Roses, Chrysanthemum, vintage pearl pins and a minature rolling pin from the Ribbon Girl.

The flower arrangement on the right consists of flower spray, 20mm and 10mm roses and chrysanthemums, all with a dashing of gesso.  I have also added one of those cute sentiment tags from LOTV.

I stamped the Lili of the Valley Recipe Sentiment onto a tag and adhered some seam binding and a little mixer charm, soooo cute.

The Apron Strings and neckline were created from vintage seam binding.  I have also added some pearl organza rose trim to the top and bottom of the Apron.

I have added a pen nib to the centre of the butterfly at the top and of course a dashing of gesso.

I have added some of my favourite pearl trim to the top of the pocket.
