A Pink Cottage Garden

Hi all...
How about another Wild Rose Studio Annabelle card?
I love this stamp of Annabelle in her Cottage garden feeding the birds.

 Coloured with Promarkers....This time using soft pinks and shades of green, shabby chic style.

 I used up some scraps for the punched flowers...and added a couple of glitter die cuts of butterflies and flower beds.

 Martha Stewart doily edge punch and a pink flower trim..slightly distressed with bead centres...

Some challenges...
I love promarkers...Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft...Flowers
The Shabby Tearoom...Summer Cottage theme plus
use the photo as inspiration..some distressing/shabby elements  and a sentiment.

Less than a week to go before I'm back to work and my girls are back to school...September is nearly upon us and the summer will be ending.
We are planning a last minute weekend away to the beach...

Thanks for visiting and I'll catch up with you soon...

Krafting away...

Good afternoon all...
Another mixed week weather wise, sun and rain most days here in West Sussex. My youngest daughter had her 9th Birthday so we went to 
Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World, which I have to say was very good.

I also made the top 3 over at I love Thank you to them for choosing my Annabelle and her birdhouse in the Garden challenge.

My card today is another card that I made for a leaving member of staff at school...

 The little butterflies were made using a heart punch as the wings and beads layed along the centre for the body with a touch of glitter.

 A great way to use up some of the off cuts that we crafters have laying around our craft room...I know I have a basket with lots of bags all sorted into colours.

I recently bought some kraft card so wanted to use some of that.

It was just a case of arranging them in a heart.
and some challenges...

Hope you are having a great weekend..
More from me soon...

Annabelle in the garden

 Hello again.
I'm back from my hols...two weeks in Los Gigantes, Tenerife and boy was it lovely and sunny and hot!
We were right by the sea with views of the volcano and mountains.

A sunbed overlooking the sea...

 The poolside snack bar...

 The Quiet Pool.

 Shame that the weather here in the UK is so up and down at the moment...
(It's raining in Sussex today)

However, here is Wild Rose Studios' Annabelle in her garden feeding the birds. Let's hope that we can persuade the nice weather to stay.

Stamped and then coloured with promarkers.
The background papers from Wild Rose Studio compliment the stamp range beautifully...
I added a few die cuts around the image.

Very cute birdhouses, flower beds and some animals, butterflies and hedgehogs.

Some challenges for this card...

Belli Challenge...Winged things
Simon says Stamp...Animal Antics
