Clean and Simple

Hi all the card I've made is for the Flutter by Wednesday Challenge,
this week the theme is Clean and Simple.
I've not seen this style of card before, it feels strange
not to fill the card with papers and embellishments, but you now what
i quite enjoyed making this card.
I am also going to enter it into the next
Crafts and Me Challenge this has the theme sparkle.

I have used a sweet pea image again this one is called 'Time Flies'.
I have used promarkers to colour her in and added stickles star dust
to the moon and her wings to create the sparkle element
in the crafts and me challenge.
I used a Martha Stewart punch on some orange card
and added a black ribbon
(cut out of a black top i bought, there to stopit falling off the hanger).
The sentiment stamp is hero arts.

Thanks for stopping by

Tilda with spring bundler

Hi all it has been nearly a month since i last visited my local craft shop, so i
decided to pop in at lunch time. I remember now why i haven't been
in, i always end up spending to much!

Amongst the stash i got was this lovely Tilda,
i'd been umming and arring for a
while whether to get this one and she was sat there on the shelf
calling out to me,so i had to give her a new home.
And to my joy while i was in the shop they had a delivery of the new
Magnolia magazine, what timing. So i can't wait to get the little peeps
into bed kick my heels of and thumb through it. That's my idea of heaven, oh yes while eating chocolate of course.

My card recipe
  • Magnolia Tilda with spring bundler
  • papers Gwenyth petite by paper adventures
  • lace from stash
  • Magnolia flowers
  • Nellie die cut shapes
  • lilac gauze
  • Sentiment from forever friends
  • copics and glitter pens
Oh well I'd better go and make the tea.

Crafts and me challenge

Hi all this is my entry for the new challenge blog at Crafts and me,
the theme is Fairies and Wings.
The image i have used is by Ching-chou kuik, i was browsing on her web site
and came across these free images that you can colour and use on your cards, As long as
you credit the artist and don't sell cards with the free image on. There are
six different images here

I have used a mixture of Copic and Promarkers,
the papers are printed off Joanna Sheen's Cottage Garden Cd ROM, they match perfectly with the poppies even though I'd coloured the image in before deciding what papers to use.
The sentiment is from hero art and the leaves and paper ribbon are
Martha Stewart punches.
The paper flowers are from my local craft shop.

Thanks for looking
