Princess Tilda plus Something More

Hi all today I have a couple of cards to show you that I have made for some challenges also a photo of Polo enjoying the sun on Tuesday.
My first card I made is for the following challenges:
For my card I have used one of my Tilda stamps, stamped and inked twice with Momento Tuxedo Ink, I coloured her with promarkers cut her out and 3'd her onto the first inked image, I used Viva Decor for the pearls on her tiara and around the image.  This is the first time I have used Viva Decor I have had it for ages, I love the effect and will definitely use it again.  The papers are Bearly Mine, Floral Breeze and Simply Dots, I used pink card to mount the papers on, I used my MS Doily border punch, my Fiskers Tag Punch and Corner rounder punch. I added a Memory Box Die Cut in the corner, cheesecloth also flowers, pink gems, hat pins and a white lace flower border.  I found some stamps that I used for the sentiment.

My second card is for the challenges at
I have been so inspired by the beautiful cards I have seen for this challenge that I just had to have ago, I used an A6 card base, the image is from Stamp Addicts Cube range, first I stamped the frame then the flower, I stamped the flower two more times cut them out, coloured them with promarkers then 3'd them, finally I added a stamped sentiment.

My final picture is of Polo, he is still having problems walking and is very unsteady on his feet, his spine is starting to curve but her still likes his daily walk around the block, it takes quite awhile but he loves it.  He will be 17yrs of age next month and I think he looks wonderful for his age. 

Well that's it from me on the posting front today but I will be seeing you all in awhile, I hope that you have enjoyed your visit, and like my pictures, I want to thank each and everyone for the lovely comments that you leave me.
Hugs to all.

Hi all, what a storm we had last night here in Glos, the heavens just opened up and stayed open way into the early hours of the morning, I don't think the garden will need my attentions for awhile, lol.
Today it is Team B's turn to host the challenge over at
The sponsor is our very own lovely Donna of Bearly Mine Designs the lucky winner will receive their choice of 2 paper sets, with new ones recently launched and some more on Friday the choice will be even more difficult.
The theme this week is a subject that is very close to my heart and I am sure your's as well it is
Here is my DT card
I have used an image that I have fallen in love with called 'Little Bit Grumpy' from The Paper Shelter.  I have coloured her with Copics I cut her out so I could mount her 3'd.
The base card is a 6x6 Papermania I have used papers from the Mini Dots set and Fairy Delights.  I have gone for a Lilac, Lavender, Purple theme just for a change, the central die cut is a Spellbinders Splendid Circle I topped that with a pink circle which I surrounded with pearls, I added a Lilac Organza double bow and flower, I also added a strip of the organza ribbon topped with a lilac spotty ribbon across the centre finally I added a stamped sentiment and some more flowers and gems.

Cherish The Moment

Hi all, I am not sure if it is just me but is Blogger playing up again? I thought that once the new dashboard was active that it would be plain sailing, I am having so many problems commenting or even opening up blogs, it all seems to be on a go slow again.
Anyway I have a card to show you that I made, a couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to win the challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's, I received a voucher for some images and this is one of the beauties that I chose, she is called, Cherish The Moment from Di's Digital Downloads.
I coloured her with promarkers, rounded the corners and mounted her onto pink card stock, the paper is a sneak peek of another New Release form Bearly Mine Designs, that will be available to purchase on Friday 11th May, this particular one is from the Yummy Delights set (picture below my card) I used pink card for the central strip which I punched with my EK success border punch, I topped that with gingham paper and ribbon, I then added my Poppy Die Cut from Memory Box, added some roses and a stamped sentiment. 
The challenges I would like to enter are:
New Releases Previews 

Well that's it from me today, I hope to be crafting as at the moment, being a Bank Holiday, it is pouring with rain, and yet yesterday was a lovely day although cold.
I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments on my previous post, I will be seeing you later, hugs to all.

Hi all, today I have managed to finish my Christmas Card for our own little challenge at the Christmas Club
The theme for this fortnight is from Carol and it is to use ribbon and lace.
I decided to use a LOTV Christmas Die Cut, I bought these last year then put them somewhere safe and have only just found them.
I used gold mirri card to mount the papers and image onto, I die cut some snowflakes also in gold mirri card and added some red gems, I stamped a sentiment and added red satin ribbon, double bow and lace.
I wanted to do something different so I made a pop up card, I used an X Cut star die for the centre used the same striped papers as on the front, I added some more snowflakes also two strips of glitter. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thank you for visiting I hope that you like my card, see you soon, hugs.
