My Lovely Supporters

Hi all, gosh it was another very hard frost last night everything is rock solid, the birds are down having their daily suet pellets so they should be happy.  I took Jess out yesterday, wearing my new wellies, and it was very slippery, caution was necessary most of the time.  The sun was shining but bitterly cold.
I haven't been too well this last week but I have still been colouring and making a few cards and this is one of them.
I have used one of my brand new digi images that I purchased from Sweet Pea stamps, I am particularly fond of Conie Fong and this is one of her images, it is called Precious.
I bought a set of Chameleon pens quite awhile ago but have yet to use them, my interest has been renewed seeing them featured and the pick of the week on Create and Craft I think I might be taking them out of the box soon, but for now I am so used to using my Graph It Markers that I used them to colour this image.
The papers I have used are from LOTV, i used my new Lawn Fern Grass Edge Die for the border around the card then I topped it with gold line stickers.
I also used my new Memory Box Stitch Die circle, I have loads of dies but rarely use them, however, I have been so inspired by the awesome work that I see while on my visits to you all that I decided to get some of them out, it was also an excuse to buy a few new ones while I was at it, lol.
I used my SU heart punch, a little daisy punch, some pearls and butterfly punch.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
There is certainly a lot of love around in blogland at the moment and I am sending you all some, you are all such a big inspiration to me and enrich both my life and crafting, a big thank you.
see you later

Hi all, today I am a GDT for 
as you can see in my sidebar one of my projects was featured on their challenge blog and as a result I was invited to be a GDT and here I am with my card.
The theme is
I have followed a tutorial that was recently shown on one of my long time blogging buddies Brenda (Floral Fantasies) blog, I fell in love with the fold and decided that this was a great time to try it out.
I have used SU brown cardstock for the base fold, the papers are from the Art Deco selection that I got from Create and Craft all papers have been mounted onto gold mirri card.  I added some lace that I seem to have had forever and again thought it would be perfect for this card.  I distressed the white doily using TH Vintage Photo ink also used it to distress around the image, the image is a stamp from Kanban called Cavendish Ladies, the Art Deco corner is a stamp from LOTV, the sentiment and one flower is also from the Art Deco set, they came in with the papers.  I added a wooden/chipboard embellishment at the top also distressed with TH ink, I attached a black bow,  finally I added some sepia daisies, gold and pearl jewel and gold hat pin
The image was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Ink and coloured with Graph it Markers 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I have scheduled this post so will link to some challenges a little later in the day.
I hope that you like my card and join in with the Vintage theme at

Hi all, I didn't think that I would get here as Google/Blogger is on a major go slow, but I made it and I have a card that I would like to share with you and enter into some challenges:
The theme of my card is LOVE I have used an image from CHING-CHOU KUIK called BUNCH OF LOVE
I have coloured her with both Graph It Markers and Copics, the papers are from LOTV, I used faux stitching around the balloons and image, I added glitter for the balloon strings, I then added a red doily heart, sentiment and some pearl liquid.  
I am not very adventurous with my crafting as I used to be, I am getting the urge to try something a little different now and again and on this card I have actually done some paper tearing for the border across the centre.
I have used a 7 x 7 black card base the papers have all been mounted onto red cardstock, the image I mounted on both black and red cardstock.
I apologise for the picture quality but I could not get the right lighting on this occasion.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
