Sweet Pea Stampers DT Card.............Blue Crush

Good morning my lovelies I'm a tad late this morn cus I've been the hospital for my pre-assessment for my operation next month. I have other problems going on in my stomach which include bowel problems & without going into detail my op should be key-hole but cus of these other probs it may make it difficult so it may end up in opening me up.....yuk!!! Anyway as long as they get rid of the some of the pain they can do what they want to be honest lol.
Anyway onto the job in my ickle hand.......Sweet Pea Stampers challenge, yes we are WEEKLY!!
This week our theme is........BLUE CRUSH...... yep its just gotta be blue........
I loved this challenge cus I'm really loving blue on cards at the mo & I got to ink another un-inked Sweet Pea stamp.........yayyyyaaayyyyy lol.

I got my large dies out & created a shaped card through my Grand Caliber.....should really use this more!!
The paper I used is Prima 'Madeline' A4 size which I got from Bunny Zoe's, I went back & got the 6x6 pad as well lol.

Yes Bunny Zoe's has an Easel Challenge on so as its my fave style of card.........taaaa daaaaaa lol.

The middle 3 flowers are from Crafty Emma's Store & the smaller ones are from my stash.

This is the bottom & the inside has also being decorated. The sentiment is from LOTV & I cut it out using a Magnolia tag die. All paper has been edged with white acrylic & the sentiment has as well.  

The image is 'Arden' by Nikki Burnette which you can get from Sweet Pea Stamps or Crafts & Me if you are in the UK. The crystal angel I made myself, its been ages since I've made some of these.
She is of course coloured with copics & I added glamour dust to her wings & parts of her clothes.
Colours used.........
YR0000 YR000 E00 E21 R20
C000 C00 C1
B0000 B000 B00 B12.

I followed a sketch for the bottom & the top. Across the middle I punched the edge of blue card using a MS punch & then lay tulle over it & then a strip of lace as well. I made 2 bows from the tulle, 1 for the angel to hang from & the other to attach to the sentiment. The blue crystal brads in the centre are from Crafts & Me. Gems are from my stash.

Well thats it for me I'm gonna do some hopping. Please pop over to see my fab teamies tho as they have made stunners!!!
See you all soon & thank you for popping by & also a big thank you for your comments on yesterdays post............Elaine sweetie usually the 2nd time we go anywhere is to appologise lol. No just kidding, we just believe in having fun & enjoying the moment & as many as we can.........thats what life is about!!!

Challenges I'm Entering..........

Tatty bye & big squishy hugs to all mmwah xoxoxoxo

Hi Vicky

I am sorry sorry I have not dropped by for a while.

I am glad to hear Megan is now doing well after the rash scare. So sorry to hear you have to have an operation, but if it stops the pain I am sure it will be worth it. I had an hip replacement 6 years ago when I was only 21 and while the op was scary it was worth the end result.

Anyhow, onto your card - it's gorgeous hun. I love the blue colour scheme which seems to match the image so well.

Love Kerry xxx
