Tilda Has Her Hat On

Hi all sorry I have been absent the last day or two but I am now trying to catch up on doing some visiting and commenting.  
I have made this card using one of my beloved Tilda stamps.  I have used two techniques on this one, one of which I have not done for a long time and that is masking, I have also done paper piecing.  I stamped  Tilda with Momento Tuxedo ink, I then masked her so I could stamp the little scene that is from Whiff of Joy and hasn't seen the light of day for the last few years.
I have coloured the scene, sky and Tilda's hair and skin with Copics. I used SU paper for paper piecing Tilda's dress, boots and bow on her hat.  The main papers are all from Bearlymine Design Simply Spots with the exception of the pink which is the brand new BM Mini Dots that Donna has just released HERE.

I have also used my Memory Box Die cut, pearls, butterflies and a stamped sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
That is it from me today I am off to do some more commenting so I will see you in a bit.
Hugs to all.


Hi all, I have scheduled this post so hope it has worked.  
Today is the turn of Team R at Digi doodles Shop to post their cards/projects and this weeks theme is
I decided to make this card for my DT project, I have several male birthdays due in March and thought this would be a good time to get at least one completed.
I have used an image from the Body Tot range, which I love so much, this character is called Cousin Marvin.  I have coloured him with Copics and used papers from Bearly Mine Designs, Simply Dots set.  I have used my TH clock face die cut I added some dots card candy and used stamped sentiments from the Messy Rabbit sets of stamps that I got ages ago from Joanna Sheen.  I stamped directly onto the paper then added clear glaze.
I do hope that you will all come join us at
For this weeks challenge we would love to see you.

Cards of Love plus More

Hi all thank you so much for your lovely comments on my Christmas card that I posted yesterday, they did so much to make my heart fill with joy.  Unfortunately I had a bad day, I had an anxiety attack and had to ask my mum to come and stay with me last night, to try and keep my mind occupied I made some cards, three of which I am posting below.
My first card is made with a new image from
Emily Hug A Heart, she is so sweet, I coloured her with Copics, mounted her onto some red card, the papers I think are Nitwits, I used my circle cutter for the large circle, I added cheesecloth, two SU punched hearts, stamped sentiment, flowers, pearls and some silk hearts which my mum gave me ages ago, they were white but I coloured them with Copics then added gold pearls to them.
For my next card which, is also LOVE themed, I used a new image from
she is called, Candy Angel
I have coloured her with Copics then used a die cut to cut the image and the mount, the papers are both from Bearlymine Designs, the base one is form the Spots Collection the flower one is from Extreme Vol 3.  I mounted both papers onto yellow/orangy card.  I also added lace, die cuts, pearl hearts, pearls, butterfly, cheesecloth and a stamped sentiment.  I also used my 'sand' effect stamp around the image I used SU mustard ink.
I would like to enter the above two cards into the following challenges:

My third and final card is using another new image available form 
she is Executive Woman
I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir Pens this is my first time with them and I think I need a lot of practice, I did colour her hair and skin with Copics. I used my sand effect stamp around the image, I used Bo Bunny papers, die cuts, pearls, black lace and sentiments.
I would like to enter this card into the Monochromatic Challenge at 
I hope that you like my selection of cards, I will see you later, hugs to all.

Christmas Card Club-Snowflakes

Hi all today I would like to show you my card that I have made for the Christmas Card Club, this week it is Sylvie's choice of theme and she chose  Snowflakes.
I have used an image that I have had for a very long time but is the first time I have used her, she was a download from Inger Harding and is precoloured.
The papers are from the Bearlymine Design spots collection and is a burgundy/maroon shade, I have mounted the papers onto white card, the image I mounted onto both white and pink card and is the same colours that I used for the Marianne die cut snowflakes.  The dark card is SU Razzleberry, I added some AB gems that I bought from Mei Flowers, The spotty ribbon is also from the SU Razzleberry range.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you like my card and have enjoyed your visit, if you would like to see what the other members of the Club have created using snowflakes their links are in my sidebar.
I would also like to thank you all for your wonderful comments, continued support of my work and your well wishes.  I am feeling better now but my nose is still very sore and I am still having sneezing bouts but at least my head is starting to clear.
I have started to play catch up and hope to have completed this by the end of the day, I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful work.
Hugs for now see you in a bit.
