DareU2DigiStamp Challenge 4

Apologies for the quality of this picture don't know why it looks like this I haven't done anything different to what I normally do. Anyway hope you are enjoying this lovely Saturday it was raining buckets here at 6.00am but the sun is now shinning.

This is my entry for this weeks DareU2DigiStamp Challenge the theme is 'Things with Wings' so I have used a new Digi Stamp from Victoria Case. My thanks go to Brandi because she uses these quite a lot and when I saw her feature this one on her blog I couldn't resist and ended up getting three stamps and they are gorgeous. I have coloured her with promarkers added a ribbon a sentiment from the Cuddly Buddly range also used a couple of flowers and the backing papers were freebies from a craft mag. Hope you like it.

I haven't finished my daily visit yet to all your blogs because my son is pestering me like mad to go on the computer I have to give in because I can't stand the hassle. But 'I will be back' a little later. Hugs Lorraine x

Tilda has Some Helping Hands

What another wonderful day we have had. I haven't done a lot of crafting today because I am working on a new pond for the resident frogs. Jojo has been out and about in the garden and really enjoying himself he likes to run up the garden to where I am working he has a cuddle then off he goes exploring. It has been such fun watching him trouble is Polo has been sulking and I just hope he will be ok, what a worrier I am lol.

Anyway I have done a couple of items this evening the first is the above which is an ATC for the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge the theme is Red & White. I have used a digital download from Ann at Spirit of Creativity, she does her own Digital Stamps and boy she is good. I cut out two pairs of hands to surround Tilda and keep her safe. Hope you like it Hugs Lorraine x My second card I will post a little later.

I was so pleased and honoured to receive this award from fellow blogger Julia this award is different from any I have received but if you read the content it is a wonderful achievement to have been chosen.

The Karma Award:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award.

Chris Olson-Glowbug

I have found that so many bloggers have become friends and have also proved a great inspiration to me. It is the wonder of seeing all your beautiful creations that keeps me motivated and to receive the wonderful comments and help that you all give me and the belief I have that you 'care' which means so much to me. It has been extra difficult to pass this onto just eight fellow bloggers as you are all so important to me and to have you in my daily life is a gift above all gifts. Hugs Lorraine x

Just Magnolia No1

Good evening everyone I have just finished visiting and commenting on your blogs and have seen a few entries for this challenge and boy are they good....well they are very good actually. This is my entry for this new challenge at Just Magnolia. I loved this sketch the only problem I had was choosing which Tilda to use they are all such beauties but I picked this one in the end plus the bench. I chose to use a mixture of purples for this one and the papers are from MIC and have had them yonks they were on offer and what crafter ever misses a bargain lol. I coloured Tilda with promarkers added a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly and the ribbon was free from a craft magazine the roses at the top were also a bargain buy from Hobbycraft also yonks ago. Oh and the card stock is a 6 x 6 hammered card and the deckled edging is already done. Hugs to you all.

Tilda and Friends ATC

Hello dear friends hope you are all having a great day. This is my entry for this weeks Tilda and Friends ATC challenge the theme is 'recipe' which is one ribbon, 2 flowers and 3 buttons. I have used all these elements and for the first time used white Pen Touch by Sakura. On my daily visit to your gorgeous blogs I have noticed that this is getting quite a trend and that it adds extra dimension to the image. I am always frightened using these sort of techniques because I still have a lot to learn with just the colouring and layout let alone adding an extra dimension but today I thought I would have a go please let me know if I have gone wrong or if there any tips that you talented crafters can give me. I have another card that I will be posting shortly for the new Just Magnolia challenge and have used this technique again. Hugs Lorraine x
