Enjoy The Rain with Saturated Canary

Good evening my lovelies how are you all? I'm sitting snuggled up with hubster watching Vampires but we've stopped to have a bite to eat. So I thought I would quickly post this card I made the other day but best do it quick before I lose my nerve. 
Yes as most of you know the lovely Krista has a GDT Call on which I know I probably dont stand a chance I mean my goodness have you seen the talent over there!!!!!!!!! Seriously freakin' good!! I do however love her fab images, especially her digi's......I think I nearly have them
My fabulous hubster found my light tent last night I've been looking for.....forever.....he's so fab my hubs is.
Isnt this image just you know I think I say that on every one........well they are all awesome!! Even tried a new colour combo for this........well new for me lol

I made a crochet flower & stuck a paper rose on the top.

The lace & stuff is from my stash. Papers are Prima 'Londonerry'  & I did some faux stitching on a couple of the layers.

The fabulous image is 'Enjoy The Rain' from Saturated my head I'm singing kiss the rain by Billie Myers lol........ She was of course coloured with my beloved Copics.

The beautiful fabric leaf & the large blue rose are both from My Crafty Heart

CES Challenges DT Creation - Anything But A Card

Well good morning me lovelies how are you all? Well I'm a bad bad girl today I'm running mega late as I have a poorly daughter, I do have quite a few makes to show you but forgot to put them on my blog yesterday with her being poorly. So will put one of Krista's on laters for ya.
Anyway onto why I'm here & of course its time for CES Challenges & this week the theme is set by the lovely & sweet Shell & it is..........
I have used this to make my grand-daughter something. I coloured the image the day she was born after I saw her dark brown hair, this is how I imagine her in a year or 2 lol. Its for her bedroom.
This stamp I've had since the release last year & she finally got inked up beginning of this year....I know shame on me cus how cute is she...................

Its a double frame thing I have painted a put a poem in this side & the image in the other.

The flower & seam binding holding the heart are from Crafty Emma's Store there is also a sale on so pop yourself over to grab a bargain!! 

This little cutie is 'Sweet Cheeks' by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD & its from the Peekers 2 range, I sooooo love those collections..............yeah I know even tho I've not inked them yet!!

This is the personal poem to my grand-daughter which I made up myself. I started doing poems after my nan died I did one for her funeral then it spiralled from there......before then I couldnt string 2 lines together lol. When my dad passed away I did a poem for his funeral & even stood up & read it out (very hard to do) but since then I've not done any. So this is my 1st one since then & I felt really proud that I was able to do this for her..........its something I'm hoping will be a forever kind of keepsake.

This is the finished project which I'm rather quite happy with. I wanted to keep it white cus then no matter what colour her bedroom it will go with it. Of course I added odd bits of pink.....well you have to dont you lol. I didnt add anything baby-ish tho as I want her to grow up with it.

Well thats it from me please pop over to see my DT buddies as their creations are gorgeous, they totally rock!!!
Thank you soooooooooo much for stopping by I loves ya all mmwah xoxoxoxo

This beautiful lady is called 'Belladonna' & I really enjoyed colouring her altho I have made a couple of mistakes with my colouring but never mind the cards are not getting sold so I dont mind lol.

The pin again is from My Crafty Heart & the pin & bottom flower will be removed before posting.....I know its cheating but.......erm...........well its hard for me ;0(
Both stamps are of exclusive to Crafts & Me Store.
