Bella with Teddy...Ahhhh!

Hi all...
I'm back, as promised, with another Wild Rose Studio card hot off the craft desk.
Bella with Teddy is just perfect for a New baby card.

 I've made this one using neutral colours, kraft and white.
The gingham paper is also from a WRS paper pack.

(Look out for my boy and girl options coming soon)

Coloured with Promarkers and then I used my circle and scallop dies.

 The Kraft sentiment tag with twine was from a pack bought in a gift shop in Covent garden.
Just a few buttons and lace to complete the baby theme. 

Some challenges....
Passion for Promarkers...Add Ribbon, lace or twine.
I love Promarkers...Use dies/ No punches
Creative Card Crew...Punches or Dies
 I'm off shopping to London tomorrow with my daughter and my sister, namely Oxford Street and Bond Street.
Victoria Secret being on the hit list.
I'll be back soon with more cards and chat!
Have fun!

Sweet Sixteen....

Hello there!
It's a sunny bank Holiday!
I've been out in the garden painting a new wooden flower box.
Me and my girls have also had our lunch out on the swinging hammock.
Very cosy!

We went to a 16th Birthday Party on Saturday and here is the card I made for the birthday girl.

An Easel card...
Pretty cupcake and bunting stamp.

Coloured in with bright Promarkers...
Magenta, Lime Green, Canary Yellow, Sky Blue.
Blossom Pink Icing.

The background paper is from a Crafts House pack called Cupcakes.

and here are some challenges...

Passion for Promarkers...Anything Goes
Perfect Sentiments...Sentiment on the front

Hope you like it!
More cards on the table as we speak in various stages of colouring, wet glue and glitter etc.

I'm off out now...
Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoy the sun!

Flowers, for me?

Good Evening all...

It's half term for me and my girls again and that means some
 relaxing, gardening, crafting, shopping etc...
All those things that I don't do due to too much WORK!!!

So first things first...
My CAS Dahlia Card made the TOP 3! 

Yay...Thank you ladies and you'll be pleased to know...

I'm back again this week!

 Another incredibly cute image from Wild Rose Studio...
This little bear has been picking flowers...
I'm not gonna say for his mum because this image would be great for any female birthday,
Grandma and Aunts, Friends.

 Coloured as ever with Promarkers.
Ivory, Blush, Apricot, Sandstone & Cinnamon.

Layered onto a dark Turquoise card then Kraft.
All the different background papers are from a Wild Rose Studio CD and I love printing off the contact sheet of squares of each paper design then using them as a co-ordinating patchwork.

The Blue Flowers I'm using here were picked up at a Craft Fair...a huge plastic bag for 50p...
(I couldn't believe it either)
The white daisies were from when I worked in a haberdashery and they came on a roll.
I think I must have had them for about 15 years now.
I've added mini pearl centres.

Some other challenges that I'm entering...

Creative Belli Challenge...The theme of Flowers
One stop Craft Challenge...Furry Friends

Thanks for coming to visit me and please leave me a comment!
I'll be crafting tomorrow so look out for some new cards this week!

Bella with Dahlia...Simply does it!

Happy Sunday Evening all...
I should be ironing my clothes for the week...but arghh, that's boring!

I've been colouring and making with my new Wild Rose Studio DT stamps!

I totally love this new release of Bella with Dahlia!
How huge is that flower?

It really doesn't need anything else so it was perfect for 
...Simply Does It...

 Coloured with Promarkers...glittered up, mounted onto plain Orange paper.
Just a ribbon knot at the corner.
The 'Thinking of you' sentiment is also WRS taken from Bella with Teddy stamp.

I'm also entering this card into the

Simon Says Challenge...Flower Power

The first of many new cards so PLEASE leave a comment and come back to visit me soon.

Wild Rose Studio...Bella's Birthday....New releases.

Good Evening to all...
Aren't the weeks going fast?
I have such good intentions to post up every few days but it just never happens. 
I have had a good excuse though.
It was my birthday on the 10th of May and I always make sure that my celebrations last at least a week.
Dinner with girlfriends the day before...then lunch with hubby, dinner with more friends on my birthday.
My sister the day after and dinner with more friends this week.

On the crafting front...I have been busy making and my new DT parcel from 

Wild Rose Studio arrived.

Bella's Birthday.

(Click on the link to see the lovely new stamps and papers).
I've got to photograph some cards and then I'll be back.

Teddy and Mouse...Wild Rose Studio

Good Morning all...
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
I was able to venture into my craft room yesterday afternoon...
It seems to be a Saturday only thing at the moment...
I had one card order for a friend and then I wanted to do something with a pile of already coloured in images.

Coloured with Promarkers.

The adorable 'Teddy and Mouse' stamp and 'Strawberry Picnic' papers are from Wild Rose Studio.

I love colouring in bear fur!
Colours used are 
Cinnamon, Blush, Ivory, Apricot and Blossom Pink for cheeks.
I used glossy accents on the heart balloons so IRL they are really shiny.

 The Bunting is cut from a piece of background paper from the pack...
as are the little daisies...

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges...

Ready Teddy Go .... Spring has sprung
Our Creative Corner ... Anything Goes

Hope your crafting is going well.
Thanks for visiting and leaving comments!
Please come back soon...I've got lots more to show you!
