Valentine Bear Hug...

Evening all...
I'm back with another card using stamps and Papers from the New Love and marriage collection from Wild Rose Studio.

 How about a Big Bear hug in the rain?

 The image is coloured with Promarkers and then layered on Red card.

 I made a banner and used a HUGS sentiment Rub on Lettering, then layered this across a heart die cut.

I got this Umbrella Charm in a big box of charms and ribbons sent to me by my WRS DT pal Kate as part of our christmas secret santa.
I used two ribbons...a satin blush pink tied in a bow and a sparkly heart white organza for across the back.

 This Rose was coloured in with Promarkers to match the paper.
Martha Stewart Doily punch for the lace edge.

Some challenges...

Papertake weekly...Tie up some loose ends (use a Bow)
Craft Us Crazy...Valentine/Love/use Red
Tuesday Throwdown...Furry Friends
Pile It On...Have a heart
Cut it up...In with the New 
Crafts and Me...Use Something New 

We've just had another sleet flurry here but now its pouring with rain so I reckon all our snow will be gone by tomorrow!
Stay safe to all my crafty friends up North. You seem to have had the worst of it!

Be back soon with more LOVE cards!

Just Married Bears...

Hello all...
I guess we are all pretty much 'snowed under' by the weather this weekend.
I drove to school yesterday in a beginnings of the flurry...had a hot chocolate in the staffroom and then watched as it literally turned into a blizzard.
School Closed and I came back home very slowly.

It has ended a very emotional week for me as one of my friends passed away quite suddenly, aged only 39, last Saturday night.
She had health issues from birth but she was the happiest, funniest, cheekiest, and most lovely, caring person I have ever known.

She is the lovely smiley lady I have cut in half on the far left...on one of our weekend food nights!
Our Nights out and In will never be the same without her!
RIP Darling Verity 

On a lighter note...
The new Wild Rose Studio Love and Marriage stamps and papers have arrived in my house...

Coloured with Promarkers...this cute Teddy couple are off on honeymoon.
 I used matt silver card and a Sizzix frame die around the image.

 Layered flower with a pink pearl centre...

 Pink Bow, with a silver heart charm and a recycled with love mini tag.
Pink ribbon and lace just showing...

 Some challenges...

Blue for a boy...

Hello again.
Happy New Year to you all!
Hope everyone had a fabulous time over the last ten days...
I have been very relaxed...the door was firmly shut on the craft much so that it was a bit like the Exorcist when I went back in this week. 
(So cold I could see my breath, NO head spinning)!

I de-camped on to the kitchen table to turn all the christmas cards in to tags and will show you a piccie of those later 
Today I'm showing a new baby card...

 Using very cute Bella the elephant stamp (but coloured in for a baby boy) from Wild Rose Studio.

 Layered up with light turquoise blue card to match the lovely dotty WRS background paper.

Felt and paper flowers, buttons and leaves all in various shades of blue.

 Ribbon, Twine and an acrylic precious tag.

Some challenges...

Crafty Ribbons...New beginnings 
Charisma Cardz...Monochrome
I love promarkers...Monochrome
Lets Craft and Create...Buttons

I'm hoping that my little elephants grey skin and tiny pink flower for mum will be Ok for the monochrome theme.

Well that's my first post for 2013.
Hope you will continue to follow me and my crafting adventures.
Lots of new Wild Rose Studio projects to come....

Thanks for your comments...I LOVE them!!!
