My favourite card...

Hello lovelies!

Well out of the projects I've been blogging with you all this evening I really do feel that I've saved the best till last. I have to say that this is one of my favourite cards that I have made.

I think it is really nice to have a favourite of your work, this is just perfect as I absolutely love vintage and I love butterflies.

The collection is the Vintage Bloom Collection from Aspire Crafts.

I have used Dekro mounts which I have coloured with distress ink. 

The die is a Joy crafts die, butterfly border.

I love the Vintage  Bloom Collection, it is so very pretty!

Well, that is me all caught up in blogland for now...I will be back very soon with some more crafty creations.

Thanks for stopping by I always appreciate your visits.

Happy crafting,
lots of love

A little bit of Bebunni Baby....

Hello lovelies...

wow I'm on a roll this evening catching up with blogland.

So, a few weeks ago I made some baby cards using the Bebunni Baby Collection from Crafter's Companion.

I went to the Ross Papercraft show in Hull and picked up some really cute baby embellishments that were just perfect to go with this collection.

Here is what I made...

On the girl baby card I have used a die which is a Sizzix die and it is the Framelits Frame Heart with crown.

The boy cards have the embellishments on that I bought at the show.

Hope you like them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting!

Lots of love

A little bit of Bebunni Love.....

Hello I am catching up good time!

I wanted to share with you the valentine card I made for my lovely husband.

I used the Bebunni Love collection from Crafter's Companion.

As soon as I saw this collection I knew it would be perfect for my Valentine!

Even though its a pretty card, I think the touch of red and blue ribbon and hearts add that masculine feel to it. The die is a die-namites die Heart Swirls.

My husband is the love of my life, my best friend and soul mate. I'm very blessed!

Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Happy Crafting,
lots of love

A 30th birthday card for my lovely friend...

Hello lovelies!

I have a birthday card to show you that I made for my lovely friend.
It was her 30th birthday last week. 

A girl after my own heart her favourite colour is pink! 

Well, how could I resist using this on her card. I teamed it with black, the Kanban Bella Italiano collection and some is what I came up with...

I used the Joanna Sheen dies Lace Edger 1 and Butterfly Flourish.

I added some gorgeous ribbon that I bought from a lovely little shop at Barnard Castle.

The flowers and spiral are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I discreetly put 30 in the corner.

I think this card was just perfect for my friend.

Thanks for looking.

Have fun and happy crafting, 
lots of love

A Little Cutie...

Hello lovelies!

Well I have to confess, time has run away with me over the last few weeks with one thing and another so I have been a little behind in my blogging. 

I have got a card to show you that I made the other day using one of my gorgeous Lili of The Valley stamps.
I love love love this one.

I wanted to make it look all cute and pretty!

I have coloured this with Letraset Promarkers in the following shades...

Ice Grey 1 ~ Ice Grey 2 ~ Ice Grey 3 ~ Ice Grey 5 ~ Cool Grey 2
Pastel Pink ~ Almond ~ Putty ~ Lavendar ~ Lilac ~ Orchid
Pastel Green ~ Soft Green ~ Grey Green 

The die I have used is the Cheery Lynn Doily Die. The edges have been inked using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Victorian Velvet.
The papers, flowers and brads are the Lillibet A Tale Of Friendship Collection.
The greeting is a Kanban die cut greeting.

I have another card to show you using another cutie Lili of The Valley Stamp. 

Again, I have coloured this using Letraset Promarkers in shades...

Tan ~ Caramel ~Raw Sienna ~ Cocoa ~ Cinnamon ~ Oatmeal
Cool Aqua ~ Duck Egg ~ Powder Blue ~ Denim Blue ~ Turquoise 

The papers are from the Lilliebet paper pad as before. I have a thing about eyelets at the moment after treating myself to the Provocraft Silent Setter. I love using this!

The die cut bunting is from LaLaLand Crafts.

I really enjoyed colouring these two images, its very relaxing having a colouring session.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really do always appreciate your visits.

Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love
