Sparkly Tilda

Hi all today I have a card to show you that I have made for the following challenges:
I have used papers from Bearly Mine Designs Extreme Vol 1, the black card is a tapestry card from Joanna Sheen, I have used quite a few die cuts, scalloped ovals, flourishes, hearts and small flowers.  I have added pink pearls and black gems that I got from Mei Flowers shop, finally I stamped the sentiment in the corner.  I have had this particular Tilda since last year but this is the first time that I have inked her up, I coloured her with a mixture of Flex and ordinary Pro Markers and sprinkled her with silver glitter. 
I hope that you like my card and have enjoyed your visit, I will see you later, hugs to all.

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at
the theme this week is
this can be dry embossing, heat embossed or both , the choice is yours.
The winner of the challenge will receive a $10 voucher to spend instore, which is great as now there is a 99c section and a reward point system, the images are truly fantastic.
Here is my DT card
I chose one of the 1930's style images and coloured her with Copics, I embossed the frame with my Hougie Board then distressed both the picture and frame to give it an aged look.  I heat embossed the bottom corner using gold embossing powder and a stamp from LOTV.  
The flower is also embossed using a Crafting Companions embossing board, I used Kraft card for the lower petals then vellum for the top layer, I cut into the top petals for a raised effect, I then added gems to the centre.  I used a doily which I distressed and some cheesecloth.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I will see you later, hugs to all.

Two for The Price Of One

Hi all today I have two cards to show you that I have been working on.  My New Years resolution was to make Christmas cards all year to ensure I had enough to send out to both family and friends, I am determined to keep that resolution, lol.
I have made two cards featuring two of my H&S stamps plus my brand new Nordic stamps from Waltzing mouse Stamps.  I love the Nordic style and while visiting my blogging friends found just what I wanted and decided to treat myself.
I stamped the images with Momento Black Tuxedo ink then coloured with Copics, instead of papers I used my Nordic set of stamps for the background, I actually dug out my Versamark ink pads that I have had for years and used them for the colours.
I love these stamps so much that you may be seeing a lot of my Christmas cards featuring this style.
My first picture show the two cards together.
On my red and green card I added some gems and ribbon. 
My second card I added no embellishments at all. 
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:
I hope that you have enjoyed your visit and like my cards, have a lovely day see you later, hugs to all.

Hi all, it seems an age that I have been waiting for this day to come, today there is a new challenge at Ooh La La and this is my debut DT for
I am both excited and a little nervous

This next fortnights theme is
Here is my DT card
I used an image and papers from a bonus section, as I adore vintage so much I chose this particular image and matching papers.  I have used quite a few embellishments on this card, including die cuts, bow, pearls and flowers.
The first two pictures show the card front at different angles.

My next two pictures show the card as the easel card fold. 

The final picture shows the base of the card with the lace and the heat embossed sentiment. 
I picked out the colour of the brides pink flower bouquet for my embellishments and flowers.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Ooh La La have just launched a new CD called
Shoes In Bloom Part 2 and the winner will receive this as their prize

I have to apologise for my lack of blogging these last few days, not only as my son been afflicted with Man flu but my Mum has not been well either so I have been rather tied up.  I am pleased to report that both patients seem a little better today and managed to eat the roast dinner that I cooked for them.  
I do tend to worry about my mum more as she is 92 and is a bit fragile.

I am hoping to get around to see you all a bit later so please bear with me.
I hope that you like my debut card and it would be truly wonderful if you would come join our challenge.
Hugs to all.
