Make Your Own Embellishments at TLT

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
Back to work today, yuk.  But I do have half a day's leave today which is good.  Am meeting some friends for lunch and thought it would be nice not to have to rush back to work. 

Hope you all had good weekend's.  I went to my mum's for lunch yesterday which was nice.  I also went to check out a new Hobbycraft shop that has opened about 20 mins from me.  Bought a couple of bits (as you do!).

So we have another challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink.  The fabulous Anita is the hostess this week and she would like you all to
"Make Your Own Embellishments"
I have made my own flowers (not very original but I love doing them!)


I used Buttercup - In the Doghouse.  The ribbon, felt and senitment are also all from Ladybug Crafts. This card is a bit of an experiment.  I used my new prisma pencils to colour the image in.  I don't think its great, but this was my third attempt and I couldnt face starting again!!
I love the ribbon and the felt flowers, I really need to buy some more!
Please go and check out the challenge blog to see the other flabulous DT projects. Can't wait to see your projects this week! 
I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Have a fun day, and see you all soon.

Sunny Sunday

Good evening everyone, have you had a nice Sunday?  I have had a lovely afternoon, had a posh lunch at Claridges with a very good friend of mine, to celebrate his birthday. Lots of champagne and lots of food!!

My card today is using another fab image from Pollycraft, this one is from Felicity and Friends - Codi with Flowers which you can get here. Here she is!



 
I hope you are not getting bored with me using the MME paper packs!  I have used lace and felt for the flowers from Ladybug Crafts Ink.  I have just added tiny little buttons to the centre of the flowers and liquid pearls.  To make the flowers I used my Die Namics rolled flower die from Dies to Die For.

I hope you like it.  I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Enjoy your evening and have a lovely bank holiday Monday!

Just A Note!

Hey everyone, hope you are all having a cool Saturday.

My day started well as I won last week's challenge over at Sketch Saturday!  Thank you ladies, a lovely surprise!

I have actually used their new sketch for my project today.  I have had a CD tin in my stash which Kerry over at Ladybug Crafts Ink gave me AGES ago!  I have been meaning to do something with it for ages, so I did today!

I used the gorgeous image from Elizabeth Bell for SCACD -Letter to A Friend which I first saw on my fabby blog buddy Mary J's blog, I fell in love with the image.





I used my new MME pack Lime Twist - Happy Go Lucky, I think this is my favourite out of all the new ones! I bought mine from Quixotic Paperie. I made the little notelets with bazzill cardstock and white smooth paper.  The sentiment and the ribbon are both from Ladybug Crafts Ink. I also added little pearls to the corners.

I hope you like it.  I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Thats it from me.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Animals!

Good morning everyone!


Its Totally Ladybug Tuesday!  We have a new challenge for you today which has been set by the fabby Pinky!  She wants to see "Animals" this week.

Well I have to say I found this more difficult than Mary J's orange last week and I hate orange!  I just don't do fur very well!  But I gave it a go and am not too disappointed with the result!




I used Add On Magnum which you can get from Ladybug Crafts Ink.  I added the present from the Add Ons stamp set which I decoupaged on.  I have used MME papers with black bazzill cardstock. 

The card is for my best friend Peter and I am sending it to him from the cats!  He will appreciate it!

Please go and check out the other DT inspiration here and make sure you join in the fun this week, remember you don't need to use a Ladybug Image (although its very cool when you do!)

I used the sketch at The Sweet Shop (this is my second entry so I hope thats ok, its a great sketch!).  I would also like to enter into the following:
I Love Promarkers - Animals;
Cute Card Thursday - Lets Get Krafty;
Paper Sundaes - Pop it Up (the image is raised and so is the present).

Have a great day!

Musical Dude!

Good afternoon everyone!

Have you had a good weekend?  They go so quickly don't they :-(, still at least we have a long weekend next week in the UK!  I've been chilling at home today, catching up on my DT projects!

I met some lovely crafters over the weekend and I would just like to welcome Caz and Lisa to my blog! It was great to meet you girls, I haven't bought any pencils yet but will be ordering once I finish this post!!

So my card today is for the Pollycraft Monday challenge which is "Music".  I love the Pollycraft images, they are so cool and great to work with. Here is my card:



I used Ethan Rockstar which you can get here.  I used my new MME paper pack (again!) and I followed the sketch at The Sweet Shop (with a twist which is to make it masculine).


Thats it from me today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.

Take care

TLT - Lets See Some Orange!

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going ok so far.  Its another Tuesday which means another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink.  Today the uber fabulous Mary J wants to see some "Orange" in your projects!

Well orange isn't my favourite colour (thanks Mary!!) but having said that I quite like how my card has come out.





I used Phoebe from the BFF stamps sets which you can get here. Doesn't she look great!  I have glittered her up a bit of course! The presents and sentiment also come with the stamp set which is great.  I used MME papers (I think) which fit the bill perfectly and I added some liquid pearl dots to the centre of the circles. The bunting was free with a magazine.

I hope you get a chance to join in the fun this week.  Please go along to the challenge blog to see the other Ladybug projects which are fabby.

I would like to enter into the following challenges:

Hi There!

Happy Saturday!  Its lovely and sunny here!  Hope you have got lots of lovely things planned for the weekend.  Wasn't blogger naughty yesterday, maybe he knew it was Friday 13th!

Anyway here is my card today:




I've been buying some new craft stash from Quixotic Paperie recently and I've used some of these on this card.  The image is one of the new Elizabeth Bell for SCACD The Peekers and this is Hey Birdy.  She is very cute.  I have also used papers from the new MME paper pack Lime Twist - Happy go Lucky (love this pack!)   I have paper pieced her dress and part of the hat and added some felt flowers, with some glitter and pearls.

I followed the sketch at the Sweet Shop but as usual I am too late to enter!  It is so annoying!  Anyway I would also like to enter into the SCACD challenge 6 which is paper piecing; The House That Stamps Built which is also paper piecing; Scrapbook Sisters - The Birds; Divas by Design which is Anything Goes and finally Crafty Creations which is also Anything Goes.

I had better get going, am still in bed!  Have a great day.
