Moving Along With The Times - Away With The Fairies!

Hi Everyone!

Another scheduled post from me! I hope you are all well.  

It is my turn to be hostess over at Moving Along with the Times this week.  I have chosen the theme of:

"Fairies"

Here is my card:




I have used an image called Alyce Fairy which you can get from The Stamping Chef. I coloured her with copics.  I kept the card simple and used a great sentiment which is from Stamping Bella Uptown Girl - Faith the Fairy. I just added some pearls to finish. I am really enjoying doing these simple style cards and they look so stylish when finished!  

I hope you can join in with us this week!  Please pop on over to the main challenge blog for more inspiration.  

Take care and I will speak to you soon!

Love and Hugs

MAWTT - Anything But Square!

Good Morning Everyone!  

This is my first scheduled post.  I am hopefully settled into my hotel in Cyprus!

Today we have a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times and our gorgeous Debs is our hostess.  She would like to see:

"Shaped Cards - Anything But Square"

I haven't done a circle card for some time so it was nice to do something different!

Here is my card:



 

This is all made up of LOTV products! I have been buying loads over there recently not had chance to use anything!!  The image is from the Magical Fairies Art Pad Set 25.  I cut her out and I have matched her with papers called Shabby Shack.  I have added some ribbon and flowers from my stash.  The sentiment is from Ladybug Crafts Ink (check out the closing down sale over at LCI) . I added some glamour dust to her wings, she is so pretty!

I hope you like my card.  Please pop on over to the main challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have been up to!  I hope you can join us this week!

OK.  I am going to get back to some sun bathing now!!

Speak soon
Love and Hugs

Grand Finale - Ladybug Crafts Ink

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY DIGI QUEENS AT POLKADOODLES POST

Well its my last day before going off on holiday tomorrow!  I will have some scheduled posts so I won't be far away!

So my second post today is a bit of a sad post really!  Some of you may know that the reason why I started my blog 4/5 years ago was because of Kerry and her fab images over at Ladybug Crafts Ink.  I was over the moon when I was asked to be on the Design Team and it was one of the first Design Teams I was asked to be on!  

Sadly Kerry is now closing down Ladybug Crafts Ink and the challenge blog are running their last ever challenge.  Some of the old DT and GDT members have been asked to join in and of course I had to say yes.  

The challenge is to use your favourite every LCI image (cling or digi).  Of course mine had to be Nikki as she is the reason I am crafting now!  Here is my card:




I have used Posh Shopper Nikki.  I wanted to do a CAS style card so I coloured her up with copics and fancy cut her out.  I layered her on some white bazzill card stock and used my CityScape Nightline die from Memory Box.  The sentiment is also from LCI here.  I just added pearls and glamour dust to finish. 

Kerry will be having a massive closing down sale with all stamps for £1 and 30% off ribbons, felt, buttons and nailheads. 


So you need to be quick!!  Click on the badge above to take you straight to the store.  The sale ends on 30 September. 

I hope you can join in the final challenge, please pop on over to the challenge blog for all the details!  

Goodbye LCI and thank you for all the inspiration and fabulous images!

That's it from me today.  My next couple of posts will be scheduled!  See you when I get back!

Love and Hugs

Polkadoodles - Digi Queens!

Good Morning Everyone!

This is a very exciting post for me today!  This is my first post for the new Digi Queens over at Polkadoodles!  

Today I am showcasing a gorgeous Christmas image called "Hollybobs Presents" which you can get from the DigiWorld store here:





Isn't she gorgeous.  I also used papers from PolkaDoodles called Hollybobs Christmas Paper which perfectly match the image and they are such great quality I didn't really want to hide them too much on the card!  I coloured her with copics (colours listed below) and I just used Die-namics Photo Corners to frame her.  I added ribbon and pearls from my stash and a touch of glamour dust. 

Please do head on over to the Polkadoodles blog to see all the other inspiration this week and to give my new teamies some love!  Also we are linking up with the Digi Choosday Challenge blog so please do head on over there as well!

OK, that's it from me for now.  I will be back a bit later today.

Love and Hugs

Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration

Good Morning Everyone!

Hope your weekend went well.  Typical rainy weather here in the UK for the bank holiday!  It literally didn't stop all day!!

The Paper Nest Dolls are sponsoring the challenge over at Copic Marker Norge this month, the theme is Birthday.  Christine has created a couple of gorgeous images for this!  I have used "Birthday Cake Owen"




I coloured him with copics and I have used papers from Maja Designs - Coffee in the Arbour.  The bunting is a die from Joanna Sheen.  The ribbon is from my stash and I just added a pearl string and pearls from the Hobby House.  Oh and the sentiment is from LOTV - Boy Oh Boy set.  

I hope you can join in with the challenge, of course you need to use copics and follow the theme of birthday!  So quite an easy one!  

Have a great day and I will see you very soon!

Love and Hugs

Challenging Hair!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all well!  I wanted to share something today that I made for the Kit and Clowder Fun Hair Combo challenge!  I was so inspired by Amanda's gorgeous tag that she did I felt the need to try it myself!  

The image is from The East Wind called Lucy Loo Bookaholic.  I have to say it was a real challenge to do this and half way through wondered why I had started!  Here is my tag:




Close Up!

Its not perfect but I am pleased that I did challenge myself.  The paper is from LOTV Timeless Victorian (so pretty!) and all the embellishments are from the Hobby House including Lace Ribbon; Pearl Swirls; Mulberry Roses and Pearl String.  The sentiment is also from LOTV and is from the Tags 24 set.  

I hope you like it!  A list of the copic colours is below if you are interested.  

That's it from me today.  Have a good one!

Love and Hugs
