Birthday Wishes...

Good evening my blogging buddies. This is a quickie before Britain's Got Talent starts and then Take me Out!! Oh I do watch some rubbish!!
For this card I have used this sweet little stamp from Lili of the Valley which I coloured with promarkers this time...for a wee change. The papers are First Edition - New Leaf...yummy. The flowers have been cut with my MFT flower trio die which I also inked up with some TH distress ink just to make them that shade darker than the card. I added some pearls and a message.

another wee cupcake....

Hi folks....well it's been a lovely day here today and I have managed to get lots of washing done and hung out...hopefully it will be dry soon!! I am hoping that I will be able to get most of folded and put away without having to iron it.

I am just loving this little stamp from LOTV...she is so adorable. My friend Donna asked me to make her a card to give to her auntie as it's a big birthday for her at the weekend....hope she likes it.

I coloured the image with copics, the papers are First Edition - New Leaf which I layered onto kraft, I distressed the edges and added some stitching. The flowers have been cut with matching card and kraft using my MFT flower trio die and I gave them some doodled petals and stuck a pearl in the center....a few of my favourite things on this card!!

This one took me ages....

A flying visit from me today....I have to say although I like this stamp, it took me ages to colour and I wasn't really sure what to do with her hair. Originally I set out to make a card to fit the challenge on the sugar Nellie Facebook page with spring like papers and colours however it went completely up in the the stamp is Entangled from Sugar Nellie which I stamped onto kraft and coloured with polychromos. The papers are MME - Lost and found which are really lovely and layered onto kraft and bazzill card which I distressed. I added some raffia, ribbon and button twine to which I attached a flower and button, the flowers have been cut with my favourite die...MFT flower trio die and I used felt and kraft to do that and then added pearls to the centres. The message is from Personal Impressions. It's a bit different but hope you likey...
