Mavis Has A Daisy....

Isn't she sweet..I went stash shopping on Saturday to my fav craft shop..The Craft Barn...and she just started waving at me..as they do..so I let her pop into my basket and brought her home...lol...

She is coloured with Copics and I did a bit of paper piecing with her dress..the DP's are a mixture of Kaiser and Craft Creation's..interesting colour combo I know..but think its works...

I gave her what I call the Tilda treatment..all flowers and sparkle..lol..added pearls as usual..and the ribbon..well actually I couldn't find the right colour in my stash..so this came from a pair of my pyjamas..its was just right!!!..the things we do for our craft!!!
Hope you have a lovely evening..

Another Tilda....

Hi..I'm back with another New Tilda...she is so sweet...I wanted to make a spring time card as its so dreary at the moment...

..she is coloured with copics and the pic has made the colours seem so dark..but IRL she is a very pale lemon...

..the DP's are a mixture of Forever Friends and Craft Creations..I used seam binding for the ribbon..MS Border punch..WOC flower blooms and asters...and tucked in my new MS lattice heart..I just love it..you'll be seeing lots of them..!!!..lol...and of course there is lots of sparkle...
Hope you all had a good monday..I hope to be back tomorrow with another...

Now you may have noticed if you are a regular visitor to my blog that I do a lot of Monochrome..I just love shades of one colour on a card..and this is one of my favourites....Oh talking of favourites..a little while back I sent a letter with a pic of one of my cards to Cardmaking & Papercrafts magazine..it was way before Christmas and I completely forgot about it..but on Saturday the Postie had a little packet for me and..guess what???..my letter was the Editors favourite in the Decembers issue and as a prize they sent me 3 sets of Shenna Douglas stamps..I was very chuffed...but unfortunately I didn't get an issue..so when I sent an email thanking them ...they said they would send me a copy..whoopeee!!!..it was the first time ever I had done anything like this..
Anyway back to the card...the DP's are by Kaisercraft..I used my new Marianne doily die and MS Vintage Doily border punch..and a Marianne Lacey flower die..pearls and lots of sparkle....
Hope you're all having a good week so far!!

Happy New Year...and a WO Challenge Card....

Happy New Year to you all...another year...where did the other one go?..lol..anyway I have been having a bit of a change around.. I bought myself a new desk and shelves..I wanted more space in the tiny area that I have to work in..so after a lot of moving of furniture and measuring I finally got almost what I wanted...I tried to make more space by having a bit of a cull and stored stuff away that doesn't get used much...now all I have to do is get used to it..lol..its amazing what you can do with a CD tower..I will post some pics tomorrow.

Anyway on to the challenge card...

This little cutie is for this weeks Wild Orchid Challenge...its a lovely sketch by Bev and I used a sweet little LOTV Cute Square..the image is one of the new releases due out next week...I've been saving my Christmas money for the occasion..lol..
the DP's are Forever Friends Spring Time..which are very lovely and fresh which I think suits LOTV images perfectly..I added gorgeous roses from WO and some cute spotty buttons I found when sorting my stash...its amazing what you buy and forget or should I say shocking!!!..lol..
well that all from me tonight...I'll be back tomorrow with Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge DT card..
Have a fab evening
