Lol! Oops! The frame I created with a fancy grande nestie the smallest and the largest of a classic circle nestie, the paper I used for it and the flowers are from the hot diggity dog pad as is the image, which I coloured with spectrum noirs, I inked all the edges with broken China DI, Buttons from stash with purple twine, sentiment stamped and cut with spellbinder. Thank you for visiting xxx

Monochromatic!

Good afternoon Lovelies! Not often I say that! Hope you all had a fab weekend, wasn't the opening ceremony fantastic? Wow when we need to we can do it with bells on! 
Not often I say this about my own work! But I love this card! 
I used 8x8 scalloped edge cream card base, pierced the edges of black card and layered, I masked the edges of some taupe coloured card and stamped in black a leafy stamp from my lovely new fave set by Creative ex called Dandelion set, I then embossed with hounds tooth embossing folder the other bit of taupe card, had to run it through twice as it was bigger than folder, I then directly inked from pad with black soot DI, it's not terribly noticeable in pic, but I did some  pleating on the ribbon and added pearls where I didn't pleat, the sentiment is from the same stamp set, I used the smallest of the new and beautiful grande, nesties, ovals, inked lightly whilst still in die with black soot DI, I then cut and embossed, using black for the branches and taupe for the cherry blossoms and inked while still in die, with same ink. And there it is, hope you like it as much as I do? Thank you for visiting today xxx

A birthday card for a very special little girl.

Good evening Lovelies, what a scorcher :)! 
Tonight's make is an emotional one for me, I'm a foster carer, and this card is for the last little one we had, she came to us at 4 days old and stayed until she was adopted at 17 months! I can tell you it was the hardest thing I've ever done, and will never get over it! A day doesn't go by without her being in my thoughts, and yes I still have times when I cry! That was nearly a year and half ago, she is extremely happy and her new mummy and daddy are the most wonderful and worthy, people to have my special little girl, and they do update me from time to time, thank goodness. And of course we have another little princess now, she came 3 weeks after the last one at a year old and will also be getting adopted fairly soon, so another broken heart coming up, I must be crazy, but in spite the heart ache I love my job! 
  So back to my card which is for the one that's been adopted she will be 3 in September, hopefully we'll get to see her?
I used 8x8 white scalloped edge card base, and just went crazy with my new spellbinder dies and m-bossability, i did it all with white and edged with pink sherbert adirondack ink, the image is Wellington stamp from a set, which I coloured using Spectrum noirs, the branches for the cherry blossom die are coloured with walnut stain DI, I dotted sticklers in the centre of cherry blossoms, added some buttons and a couple of the smallest bitty blossoms and foliage, the 3 is a template which I cut out onto double sided adhesive and plonked into micro beads, a bobby dazzler for biggest flower and voila, took quite a while, but I like the result, I had to get this right for her love her! Hope you like it? Thank you for spending the time to visit xxx

A simple card I used 8x8 scalloped edge cream card base cut an apature into burgany card using spellbinders heirloom die, the largest one, then stamped and clear sparkle EP some snowflakes, cut cream card the same die and whilst still in the die embossed with a snowflake folder, added sentiment from Indigoblu onto spellbinder banner, added a lovely bow topped off with a gorgeous bobby dazzler and two cream hat pins viola!

Well lovelies, I don't know about yours but our weather has been very hit and miss today, bright sunshine one minute then pouring rain the next, come on its July!......
Tonight's make I am entering for http://cardsgalorechallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme is White on white. I used 8x8 scalloped edge base, matted with centura pearl which I'd pierced the edges, I embossed with spellbinders m-bossabilities daisy pattern had to run through twice as card bigger than folder, bet you can't see a join lol ;) I used white antique lace for edge and along bottom and blinged it with a lovely bobby dazzler, I cut 6 various size and style Spellbinders spiral flowers plus the Spellbinders foliage dies twice, probably my most used dies and one of my all time faves! And stuck em on! Voila! A simple card, hope you like it, thank you for taking the time to look! 

Anything goes!
