Good Morning
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

I hope you are all well and having a good day?

Today is the start of the new challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog

The theme for this week is "Anything Goes"

We are sponsored by Bugaboo where you can win 7 digi's.



Our second sponsor  StitchyBears Digi Outlet is offering $10 to spend in their store.




I have used -  Girlz Sick digi from Bugaboo


DETAILS

                                             1. Started with  White  card size  8 x 8 

                                            2. I then took purple card and matted  another piece 
                                              of white card on top and added a purple spotted ribbon
                                             before mounting onto the card base.

                                         3. Next layer was copper coloured glitter paper. The image
                                            was coloured using  Pro and flex markers and then
                                            die cut using SB die Majestic Labels Eight.  Before 
                                            removing from the die I distressed around the edges,
                                            then mounted onto the card using foam pads.

                                       4. To complete I made purple flowers and the  sentiment
                                           and added clear gems at the corners.

I do hope you will pop along to the challenge and have a go.

Until Next Time
As Always

I'm Ready


Good Morning, my crafty friends, flowers and visitors,

Hope you are all well and ready for Sunday.  I am doing my post early as
going to be decorating today (OH what fun) so will not get much time
to craft.  Not looking forward to it, tried leaving it in the hope it would
magic itself but unfortunatly that has not happened.

My card today is made using my new goodies from Ruby Red Crafts
and the image is off the new Cd ( Step into Spring with Ruby Red )
  click here to go to the shop and the artwork from the talented 
Lynn Carter, who we all know is Linnie from WhoopsiDaisy. 

Hope you like?


DETAILS

1. Card size is 8 x 8 plain white card and ti this I have added
sliver backing paper.

2. Using my new die purchased  from Ruby Red Crafts and
from Couture Creations Momento Collection and called
Tied Together I cut the frame using Centura Pearl card
stock Snow White hint of silver from Crafters Companion.

3.The image as I have already mentioned is from the new
Cd Step into Spring with Ruby Red and you should really
check it out as there are some gorgeous images on it.
I have coloured her using flex markers and the die
cut the image using SB 5 x7 Enchanted Labels 28 and
then using foam pads adhered her to the frame.

  4. To complete, I have added Lilac flowers (sorry they look
Pink), some flourishes and clear gems on the frame
and at the corners of the image frame.  Along the
bottom I added a green ribbon and placed clear gems
onto it. You might notice the three flowers on the
     frame, well I have made these by  using the waste
from the Tied Together frame and they have
     been coloured using a Sliver Metallic Marker and then I
added a large clear gem to the centre.  So you see not
only do you get this fabulous die you get the added
bonus of making flowers, not bad!.

Well my friends, as much as I do not want to I must
sign off for today and make a start on the painting

So until next time
As Always,
Take Care and Happy Crafting.

Fantasia


Good Evening, my crafty friends, followers and visitors.

   Well its nearly Friday already, yet another week has flown by, what is going on its no sooner
           Monday then hey ho Friday is upon us.  I suppose for those of you that still work this is a good    
         thing and the week must feel as though it drags, (I know I used to feel that way when I worked).

Well we are now in October and the shops are already getting in their Christmas stocks,
boy each year it seem that Christmas gets earlier and earlier. I must get on with my
Christmas cards this weekend, otherwise it will be next Christmas before they are done.

I wold like to  share with you today a card I am very proud of and I hope you like it too.


DETAILS

            1. Card base is 8 x8 scalloped edge and I have added sliver mirri
            board to it. It is defiantly silver mirri, its the camera that has
         picked up the light and given it the multi coloured effect.
Nice effect though don't you think?

   2. The next layer is a silver/blue satin card and I have die  
                cut the corners using the Robert Adams die (Trellis  Corner)
 I love this die.  The  I adhered it to the mirri board.

          3. The image (sorry I do not know the name) I have coloured
    using my pro-markers and used glossy accent on the 
 bubbles and her eyes.  Once dry I edged round the
image using Versa Colour Ink Cyan,

        4. To complete I have added the sentiments (Happy Birthday 
and With Love)

Well my friends that all I have time for today,
Hope to see you again tomorrow.

Until Next Time

Lilac Sparkle


Good Morning my crafty friends,followers and visitors,

Welcome to my blog for today, I hope everyone is well?.  We have had some
lovely weather this week and you would not know that is was the end of
September especially on Tuesday as we had clear blue skies and sunshine.
I even had to take my coat off in town as it was that warm.

Sorry I have not blogged since Monday but somehow the days seem to be running
away from me and what with one thing and another before I know it, its evening
and tea time.  After that I usually sit down with hubby to watch some TV, then
the usual happens, Yes Jennifer falls asleep.

Anyway I hope you will like today's offering.


DETAILS

1. Card is 8 x8 scalloped edge and I have matted it with Lilac
card that I have embossed using Creative Expression folder
Quilted Flower.

2. I then took a piece of white card and masked it using the
Creative Expressions mask Filigree and then used Cosmic
Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste  Lilac Blush to create the
pattern.

3. Whilst I waited for it to dry I took the petal dies that was a
freebie with the new Tattered Lace Magazine and cut out
12 large petals and  20  small petals out of lilac card, These
are great dies and so easy to create a stunning flower. Once
the petals were all folded I adhered them to a piece of card,
that had been punched out into a circle to create the flower
  and finished it by adding a gem to the centre.


4. Once the paste was completely dry I adhered the flower
to the centre then using foam pads I adhered it at
an angle onto my card base.  To complete I added
the sentiment (With Love ) from my stash.

Well that's all for today my friends
