Bunny Zoes Challenges

Happy Good Friday my lovelies, yayyyyyy Easter Weekend the one super long weekend we get just once a year. Hope you all have a lovely relaxing one & spend it with your loved ones ;0)

Ok so we have a new challenge over at Bunny Zoes & this month the lovely Liz chose the theme which is super duper easy, you will love it!!!!!!
.........see told ya it was easy.
The papers are the super gorgeous MME 'Heirloom' which I have inked with walnut & duffed up a little bit before running them through my sewing machine, I sooooooooo love these papers!!

The card for the border & all the dies is Co-ordinations black magic which I've had forever & used the coloured side. The border I have sanded on the higher parts of the embossing, it looks fab IRL, subtle though as well.

I also added gesso here & there as well to help with the distressed look ;0) Seam Binding is from my stash.

The cute gorgeous image are the new Rachelle Anne Miller stamps, this one is called 'Close Knit Friends' it comes with a few sentiments as well so you can choose which one to use. I coloured the image with Distress Ink Markers.
The corrugated card I've had for a while & is my last sheet, need to remember where I got it from.....

I even managed to add a bit of bling to this distressed creation, well every girl deserves her bling now ;0)
Ok now for the list of super goodies I used on this card, all of which are from Bunny Zoes, except the cardstock & seam binding. Each item will take you directly to that product.

Crafty Little Fairies DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you all? 

Anyhoo's onto the job in hand. Its time for a brand new challenge over at Crafty Little Fairies & this week its the Blue Fairies with the theme of..............
.............yep just use an image that contains something that can go up into the air/sky. Remember you can use any image from any company but make sure its a stamped or digi image.
I have a card today using one of my older un-inked stamps...........I'm determined to get through them............eventually lol.
Yes its even a male card, it seems the more you do the easier they get lol. I've had this stamp since it was released & not inked it up, which is a shame as I lurve LOTV images especially their male images!!

The burlap is from my stash & the twill ribbon is cream but I coloured it with my BG09 Copic & stitched it to the burlap, ran 2 rows of stitches along it.

The fabulous image is 'Aeroplane' of course by LOTV. I have coloured it with copics, I will add the colours shortly as this is a scheduled post whilst sitting in bed lol.

The yummy papers are MME Lost & Found 'Portobello Road', I've inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched then layered onto teal card from my stash. Button, string & letter stickers are from my stash.

Well thats it from me this is a scheduled post, I have someone coming to fit a towbar to our van first thing this morning.
Please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations.

Thank you soooooooooo much for stopping by, you all totally rock!!!!!!!!
Lotsa squishy hugs to all mmwah

Happy 10th Birthday LOTV

Good morning my lovelies & it is such a beautiful morning up here by the sea. I've got one lot of washing pegged out & the bedding in the washer to be pegged out once its done.
Sorry I've been MIA, been rather busy. I've had cards made but then its took me til now to take pics lol.

The card I'm showing today I made specifically for LOTV & also their monthly challenge as they are celebrating 10 years...........
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOTV, here's to another 10 years.

Now I brought the Annabel stamps as soon as they were released, within seconds actually lol & they arrived the next day & I even colour one up straight away. Sadly it took a while for her to get on a card, then when I saw the new challenge I made the card but then kept forgetting to take pics & blog it  :0( I know I'm not right in the head lol.
I made the card into my favourite style, shabby chic. The pad is an older Prima pad called 'Pixie Glen' I absolutely lurve the lush soft colours in this pad. I have machine stitched the papers & added gesso here & there.

The flowers are all WOC. I've added 2 layers of lace, the bottom pale pink one is from my stash & top one is 'Estee' 40mm from LLC, need more of this lace its lush. The metal corner is from my stash & I painted it with white gesso.

The clip is Tim Holtz & I added some scrap lace through the hole & added white gesso. The tag & postage thingies are from the Prima pad, I gave them a distressing & added gesso. The numbers are from my stash.

The stamp is called 'Annabel Pedal Power' I love these so much. I coloured the image with copics but kept it light so it went with the card, kept shading minimal as well.

The 'Sentiment Tags' are also LOTV. As always the inside is decorated to compliment the front. The leaves under the flowers are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns'.
I think that is it.

Its also Ribbon Girl LOTV challenge this week so I'm also putting my card there.

Thank you so much for stopping by, big hugs to you all.
Tatty bye & take care
