My card today is for our new challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers where this week we have a really easy theme of  'Anything Goes'.  We are sponsored by the fabulous Joanna Sheen who is generously offering the winner a £10 voucher to spend online. :) 

This weekend I had been playing about with some dies (again) and made the above shape with just a Cheery Lynn victorian corner die cut twice and layered on top of each other.  I thought that this gorgeous Sweet Pea image went really well with it and just coloured with PM's.

Charisma Cardz - Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon



Morning, I am back again today with another card :)

...... and todays card is for our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz which is 'Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon'.  We are sponsored this week by Crafty Emmas Store and Digi-Doodle Shop, so 2 fabby prizes and well worth playing along.

Now I thought for this theme I would have a bash at ribbon weaving.  Using the MS punch made it really quick and easy, as I didnt have to worry about keeping the spacing even, or keeping the ribbon straight. ;)  

The image is a gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp, which I have had for ages, so thought it was high time I used it! :) lol.  I hand stitched First Edition paper and just added Card Candi, MS butterflies and also used glossy accents and glitter on the 'bloons'.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Lili's Little Fairies - Ribbon & Lace
The Stampman Challenges - Colours of Spring/Easter
Bling it On - Shades of Lilac
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Spring Colours

Good Morning peeps :) 

Todays new challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers is 'Ribbons and Bows' and we are sponsored this week by one of my very favourite stamp companies  Lili of the Valley .  The winner of this challenge will receive an online shopping voucher of £10, so thats brilliant eh? :)

For my card I used this really cute 'Gift Wrapped' image, and was aiming for a  light, fresh and springlike feel.  This was quite a quick make too, as I just used an MS patp on Centura pearl card and embossed it.  I   coloured the image with PM's and Flexmarkers, and the dies are spellbinder and doo hickey.  Flowers were from ebay and the pearls are from Joanna Sheen.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

White on White



Good Morning, and happy weekend! :)

So, last weekend I had a fancy to make something WoW, as I have been wanting to have a good play with some Centura Pearl card I bought recently - it has a really lovely shimmer.  It also gave me a great excuse to just go mad on lots of embossing, die-cutting and layering. 

This is an 8 x 8 inch card - so quite massive, and I used another of the Joanna Sheen vintage toppers I found in my stash.  The embossing folders are Creative Expressions and the dies are Spellbinders, Marianne and Doo Hickey.  The really pretty intricate lace die is Cheery Lynn - my first one, and I love it! :) Flowers are WOC.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Wild Orchid Crafts - White + 1
Cheery Lynn Designs - 17 - Lots of Layers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog and I hope everyone has a smashing day :)
