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

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 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

Ok this card is my entry for this weeks challenge at Flutter By Wednesday I have used a new digital image that I bought from Becca Kay Designs called Angel of Hope and isn't she just fab. I have coloured her in promarkers added flora doodles with a tassel and stamped 'dream' on the backing paper. Just a reminder that its the first challenge over at Becca Kay Designs you make a card using one of her digital images and she has several free ones on her site so go and have a go there is a prize for the winner.

Hi all Becca Kay has set up a challenge on her blog which you can enter using one of her images whether it has been purchased or a freebie so go have a look and try it out. The image I have used for my entry is one of her freebies and I love it as I hope you do. The image has been coloured using promarkers I have added some art deco corner stickers a glittered butterfly and one of Jak's blooms the backing papers are a mixture of Gina K and Funky Fairies.
Hi all I am so thrilled to have received this card this morning from special blogging buddy Rowena aka craftypagan. I also had some stamped images which I haven't got so they will be perfect for future cards that I hope I can make. It fills my heart with love that you bloggers can think of doing something like this for me. I don't think anyone will ever know how much this kindness means to me it goes deep real deep and it is something I have not been used to in the past. So I want to say thank you once again to Rowena and to all of you who are my blogging buddies you are all so special. Hugs to you all Lorraine x
This weeks challenge at Stamp With Us is 'Chocolate' inspired and I decided to use one of my unused Tilda's with two muffins. The background papers are from the Chocolate section on My Craft Studio as are the pieces of chocolate at the top I have also added two more of Jak's flowers and some of my chocolate coloured ribbon. I hope you are all having a great day and enjoying this beautiful weather. Hugs to you all Lorraine x

What a fabulous day with the sun shinning doesn't it make you feel good. This is my entry for this week's Stamptacular Challenge which is themed 'Black, White + One'. For this I decided to go for the exotic feel with two digital stamps by Sandra Dry and the bottom border I have stamped using one of my Stamp Addict Destination Carols Cube, which just adds that bit extra, I also added a couple of orange flowers with black brads as their centres and a few gems. The images have been coloured with promarkers. Hope you like it hugs to you all.

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.
