Go Kreate for the shape
Sizzix Weathered Clock

Paper Roses

Hi There
I hope you are all having an amazing weekend so far.
Ive been having a little playtime today because the weather is soooo wet n windy!!

I have made this card for a fellow DT friend of mine 
 Ive used Tilda With Rose Basket from the Pink Lemonade Collection coloured with Distress ReInkers

Ive also got a little carried away with my rolled paper roses. I find making these so theraputic. Love them 

Papers used are Riddersholm. One is from Tailgate Marked and the pink is from Chantilly Dawn. Such beautiful Papers to work with and worked perfect for the rolled roses.
Also around the image I highlighted a little with a gel roll White pen. This idea came from my amazing friend Elise

Dies used were Joycraft Oval and Filmstrip
Sizzix Butterflight
DooHickeys Tilda's Tag and Rose Leaf
Rolled Roses
Cheesecloth, Pearl Trim and Angel Prima Embellishment are from  the Ribbon Girls

I wish you all a wonderful week
Hugs




A Box of Under Water Treasures

Hiyaaa
It'sssssssssssssss Fridayyyy Whooo!!! 
Though I dont know why I wrote that as I still have work tomorrow!! Then just one more day to work and Im on holiday!!! Whoop Whoop!!!
Today to share is a project I made for the Magnolia DooHickey Summer Magazine issue 1
 I never knew what was going to arrive and to create something in a few days is quite scary, especially if it is going to be published. Thankfully I loved them :D which helped alot. :D .It's when you dont like something and you have to create.....That's when I hit a brick wall, or at least I stare at one waiting for ideas to hit me hard!!!! 
Taking a bath usually helps!
I sat Pearl Tilda on a flower I made using the Peony DooHickey and surrounded her with seaweed and more underwater foliage. The anchor I embossed with Aged Silver Frantage

I made another exploding box of  a Seaworld Scene

This is how it looked when closed. Its really really small.

Thankyou so much for visiting me

I wish you an AMAZING weekend
Hugs

Here I Am Tilda


Here I am again!!
Two posts in two days!! I am doing well.. :D

I managed a little playtime yesterday and it was one of those times when I couldn't put it down until it was finished. 
Ive had this idea in my head as soon as I saw 'Here I am Tilda' masked with the window stamp from an earlier collection. This must be one of my most used Magnolia Stamps.
Both available at Sir Stampalot

I tried to create the Clematis flowers like in the picture above using the DooHickey Peony Die. I just love this flower when it is in full bloom.

 Again I used lots of DooHickeys
 and as always I coloured with Distress Re-Inkers
Papers are Maja Coffee In The Arbour
Other bits and pieces of lace are from the Ribbon Girl Shop

Thankyou so much for stopping by today.
I wish you an amazing week ahead :D
Hugs for now

Hope you like it as much as I love making it
