Yippee!! My Prize has arrived

YES!!! MY prize I won from 'Just Magnolia' arrived this week . Well It was actually a $25 voucher to spend and boy did I soon spend it!!lol It certainly wasnt hard to do and I actually went over the budget!!Oh well it keeps me quiet and away from the TV for the boys to watch the footie!!(That's what I keep telling myself anyhow!!!)LOL! So Thankyou so much.
.My prize was the fabulous Nestie labels. I'm so going to love these. I think they look so elegant.

Tilda Was coloured with Distress inks 'Spun Sugar'. Used all my usual stash and punches.
This was the inside of the card but I thought I would try something different from the usual opening card.

Challenges Im entering this week are
A Spoonful of Sugar-Greeting

Also before I go, can I just mention that The Stampman have just opened up their New ATC SWAP BLOG. It doesnt actually begin until the beginning of July, so keep popping back to see what the challenge is. Don't be scared though its an easy one. Ive never done an ATC until now!!, so if I can do it you can too!!!lol

You can also click the pic on the right hand column.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend xx

A Gift from the Heart

I thought I would enter a few more challenges again. Im becoming quite addicted to the challenges now!!
Here Ive used Tilda holding Peony and given her quite a romantic look!
The papers are Basic Grey Capella edged with Distress Victorian Velvet ink. The usual favourites too,Nesties Cuttlebug folders,Punches.

The wings are from the new Tim's Sizzix Aterations die 'Big Heart wings' found HERE

Something else Im going to love!lol The yummy music paper was also from The Stampman

Ive used Rock Candy on her to give her the glazed crackled effect. A bit difficult to photograph !

The glass pink gems on the side are also from The Stampman(New!) and I didnt know we had them until Friday!! I'll definately be buying more of them!!lol(bet Jill hasnt even seen them!)ha

The inside also with the New glass gems and yummy metal corners!

Paper Roses!!!

Can you remember the song!!Bit before my time!!lol But I couldn't stop singing it in my head while making them.
I made this card quickly this afternoon for my friend's birthday. Luckily I had already water coloured Tilda. I painted her dress and roses with Aged Mahogany Distress ink.
For the flower I used 'Tattered Florals'

It's a quick post tonight! My favourite program 'The Vampire Diaries' is on at 9pm and loads to do before then and its a must see program!!
Challenge Im entering this into is

You make me Smile

Hi all
Another lovely day here in the lovely Yorkshire. My kids were happy doing their thing, so I went off and did mine!!lol
I haven't had much time to play with the new Tim Holtz Sizzix die 'Tattered Florals' (Yes i know i'm VERY lucky to have one,they seem to be like gold at the moment!) and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! I got it from the fabby STAMPMAN. I used the medium and small flower to make these flowers.

I'm loving water colouring with my DYE ink pads. For those who read my blog you will know I'm not a fan of colouring with pens(though there's nothing wrong with that!!)I just love painting and trying my best to improve and make do with what Ive got. For this Tilda Ive used Adirondack ink pad Pool(Yes! you dont just have to use distress inks) any dye ink will work.

The flowers were also coloured with Pool and edged with Distress Brushed Corduroy. The metal corners are from The Stampman.

The Just Magnolia Challenge this week is a sketch.
Basic Grey Challenges this week is Turquoise,Brown and Cream. So Pool was perfect for this and I used my yummy Basic grey 'stroky papers'

My pictures aren't very good as it was quite a difficult one to photograph, but Tilda was actually inside the card and the outer panel was an aperture . I used my nestie Circles for this.

After entering Crafty Cardmakers Challenge the other week and having to decorate the inside of your cards, I'm loving this look too. It just adds that extra dimension.

Challenges are:

Bye for now
