Ballerina Tilda...

Good evening, to all you lovely crafters, hope you are all having a fab week ,it's nearly the 
weekend, whoop whoop!! cant wait... as im so ready for a day off after doing 16 days on the
trot at work, really want some time with my family and to create some cards......

                   Today I've got a card to share, and I'm so happy as I've been looking for this 
magnolia stamp for about 12 months now as it is an old one, it is sold out everywhere but 
finally managed to get it from eBay, I think she is so cute ...

                                   I have coloured tilda up using my copic markers......
                                                      Here are the colours i used...
                                                 Skin ... E000, E00, E11, E20, E22
                                                Hair ... E41, E43, E 44
                                                Dress ... RV91, RV93, RV95
                                                Top and tights ... C1, C3, blender

               The papers are from Maja Design vintage frost basic, these papers are really great
                              as they are so versatile, not just for winter or christmas cards
               I used spellbinders grand circle dies for my card base, the swirls and removable 
             tags are magnolia doohickey dies, and the cute little bow shown in the pic above is
                                       a sue wilson's itty bitty bow die... Cute!!!!

All my flowers are from Wild orchid crafts, aren't they scrummy, 
i have added gesso to them to make them look more shabby ....

Well that's all for today, hopefully be back at the weekend ..

Butterfly card !!

Good evening, all, boy what a day, I've just got back from the hospital cause around 12 o clock 
today i got a call from school asking i could please go down as soon as poss because my 
youngest daughter had banged her head on a metal pole in the playground, but not for me to 
worry as she isn't in any distress but that she doesn't seem her normal self  and to see what i 
thought, however when i get there they said i had to take her straight to A&E as she had been 
quite spaced out and confused. They said that since she had done it 15 mins ago she kept getting
up and wandering around aimlessly , they asked her what her name was as to which she couldn't answer and when they asked her if she knew where she was, she just kept saying night night ... 
to say i was worried was an understatement ... but to cut a long story short after spending 5 hours 
in A&E, and the doctors saying she had mild concussion that we could go but i've  got to keep my
eye on her for  next 24 hours, but she seems o.k now, back to her normal self, thank goodness ...

                  Anyway enough of my rambling, i would to share a card with you, its
                           a bit different from my normal style but i quite like it ......

                                  The papers i used are from my minds eye Tangerine pad.....

         Here is a side view so you can see how dimensional these shadow box cards are
                           i just love making them .... the butterfly is a marianne design die, 
                                               and the corner die is from joy crafts ...
                                    The flowers and the gorgeous pearl bling piece in the middle
                                                of the bow are from Wild orchid crafts ......
                                      Well thats all from me today, sorry for the lack of pics
                             but the lighting was really bad today as it was dull outside ....
                                                               Thanks for stopping by
                                                                 it means a lot xxxxxx

Good morning all, hope you all had a fab weekend, trouble is they aren't long enough... i had a lazy day yesterday, in fact too lazy as i just stayed in my pj's and watched films all day with my 3 girls, but it was a nice change .....

                               I popped by to share a card that i have made....., i haven't made 
                          a card in a shabby chic style for a while as im not really that good at it,
                                     but i actually lurve the way this turned out .............

            I have no idea what paper i used as it was from my scrap box, but i wish i knew as i
                    would be  defo getting some more as they are gorgeous,i think the topper
                                       in the middle is also from the same paper line....

I added gesso to the papers to give them a more shabby look

The flowers, seam binding and rose cavachon are from The Ribbon girl
