Awards from Friends

Hi all although I am feeling right cacky I just could not stay away from you all any longer and I felt that my first task was to post these two wonderful awards that I have received from two of my lovely blogging friends.
This first award is from Doreen
As with all awards there are rules the first being to thank the person who passed the award on to you so Thank You Doreen
The other rules are to pass it on to five other bloggers, this I always find so difficult to do but here goes:

Now I am supposed to tell you seven things about myself but I think you know all there is to know about me lol so I will not bore you with any details.
This second award was given to me several days ago by the lovely Elaine and I am sending more Thanks to you Elaine. Although I have received this one already it still means so much to me to have been thought worthy of receiving it.
So a big Thank you to both Doreen and Elaine.

Yellow Submarine - Chi Chi Memories DT Card

This card I have made using the new set of Digi stamps from Chi Chi Memories called #'Splash of Fun'
I have used sketch No: 26 from Tuesday Morning Sketches as it is their birthday you get to choose which of your favourite sketches to use.
I have used a combination of backing papers the yellow is SU the two different coloured blues are from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop, they are beautiful.
I coloured the image with promarkers then cut it out and adhered to the central square with silicone I added some gems to look like bubbles, the sentiment is from Messy Rabbit.

Here is the full set available from Chi Chi Memories
I apologise for not being around but I am not only suffering with this hot humid weather but sickness as well I do hope to visit you later today, so please forgive me.
Hugs

Pink and Black Duo

This little duo I have made as my second give away to my wonderful followers. I did say I would be doing another one and I will be offering these as a 'thank you' gift on a regular basis, it is my way of thanking you for your continued loyal support, encouragement and for being my friends. This is only for my followers so there is no requirement to post this in your sidebars. The accordion bag will contain some stamped images and other little goodies for you to use.

I am entering this duo into the following challenges:
For this set I have used SU card and SU Night and Day papers, with the card I followed the sketch at Donna's Den.  
I used silver mirror board for the scalloped Nestie for the little flowers I used my Pinflair punch I added the SU bp then on top of that added some beautiful double sided satin ribbon. I coloured the image with promarkers. I punched out some retro flowers and MS butterflies using the same paper and card stock.
It was quite difficult taking a photo with the mirror card as I kept getting my reflection in it.
This is the accordion file bag the front decoration is black mirror card, pink flowers and I found some cameo buttons that I have had for several years and used that as the central image.
The tutorial for the accordion file bag can be found on my tutorial page and all credit for this is given to Maria.
Well I hope you have enjoyed looking at my photos and this duo set.
Hugs to all

Digital Tuesday Challenge #66 DT Card

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at Digital Tuesday and our lovely Kristine has chosen the theme 
to use the colours Red, White and Blue
Before I get onto my card I would like to say a big thank you to all who joined us last week for the Summertime challenge the quality of the cards projects were wonderful.

This week our sponsor is My Grafico and the winner will get to choose 1 set of Digi Stamps plus 30% off other items purchased.

Here is my card
I chose to use a Meljen image available from Whimsy Stamps and coloured with Copics, the base papers are from Chi Chi Memories, the blue card I passed through the Cuttlebug using the mesh folder, I had some stars in my stash that I had cut with my Cricut. I have added star dust stickles to the swirls and the little sparklers I have also added some gold gems, which I am hoping you can see and is acceptable for the new Glitterbabes Challenge. 
The image is in PNG format so with my MCS graphics programme I also inserted the sentiment which is also available at Whimsy Stamps.

I am also entering this into the following challenges


I hope you like it and please come join in our challenge this week
Hugs to all see you later.

Bookmarks

Hi all Stitchy Bear has just brought out a set of four bookmarks and can be found HERE you can either get them as a set or individually and of course crafters being crafters they are useful for other projects as well and don't forget there is a SALE on at the moment.
The theme for these new Digi Bookmarks is based on the Twilight books the new film Eclipse is due to open at the cinemas shortly.  Personally I have not got a clue what it is all about although I have seen previews on the TV of the new movie.
This is what I have made using two of the four images available.
I have created two bookmarks both coloured with promarkers I then laminated them used my crop a dile to punch a hole and threaded two of my precious tassels through.
I am thinking of giving these as little gifts so they will go into my ever growing 'gift' stash
I am also thinking that I could make a holder for them and make a bookmark gift card, so stay tuned to see what I come up with lol.
Hugs to all see you later.
