CES Challenges DT Card

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all? I have a poorly 16 year old at the mo he has a bad chest infection so he's on antibiotics as well as his inhaler cus he has asthma.......but its ok he has his xbox lol.
Anyhoos its Saturday so that means its time for a new challenge over at CES & this week is the lovely Carrie's turn to set the theme which is................
SHAPE UP............
I dont mean go out buy one of those trainy sporty bra things & start jogging........gawd no!!! We mean shaped cards.. so no square cards & no oblong cards either........bring those shapely curvy cards lol.
I have used one of the gorgeous new digi images from Crafts & Me, my regulars will know I ADORE Hannah Lynn always have done ever since I first saw them on Crafts & Me so I always get excited around the 1st of each month for their new images.

The shape I cut out using a large die on my Grand Calibur, I really need to use this more. The gorgeous dragonfly is a Memory Box die called 'Willow Dragonfly' from My Crafty Heart.

The gorgeous image is called 'Dahlia' & I coloured her with my beloved Copics. I went for bright colours which is soooooooooo unusual for me. I coloured the dragonfly wings so they were see-through & you could still see her body through the wings. I had so much fun with this I really did!!!
I used a Marianne Frame die for the mat behind the image.

Flower & card candy I got from Crafty Emma's Store which is closing down so many things are on offer.

The gorgeous paper is Prima 'Madeline' & inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.
All A4 card used is from Paper Mill Direct.

Well thats it from me thank you sooooooooooo much for stopping by, please pop by my lovely teamies to see their beautiful creations.
Hope you all have a super duper weekend, take care sweeties mmwah xoxoxo

My Crafty Heart DT Card

Hello everyone how are you? I am very late with this card I meant to get it on this morning but didnt actually get it made til this evening. I got my DT stuff from the lovely Teresa the other day & as soon as I saw this stamp I had to ink it up.............its just the sweetest image.............
This is of course a Sarah Kay stamp, I so love her images & altho I have quite a few of her stamps I am very guilty of neglecting them & some have still not seen ink.......shame on me I know!

The gorgeous paper is Prima 'Nature Garden' this is such a pretty pad. I have distressed all the edges with walnut distress ink & matted onto thick kraft card.

The fabby dies I have used are as follows......
Along the top I have used Memory Box 'Catalina Border' which is sooooooooo pretty & may become my favourite die.
I have also used a new die that Teresa has recently added to her store, I have used
Cheery Lynn 'Pair Of Ferns' these are great cus you actually get 2 dies in the pack, a lefty & a righty which I think is an awesome idea!!!

This sweet Sarah Kay stamp is called 'A Little Bit Of Country' & I coloured these 2 lil peeps with my trusty copics, I also paper pieced the little fella's waistcoat & trousers cus I think paper piecing looks so nice..............& also cus I was being lazy lol.
Check out the other Stampavie stamps Teresa has in her store.

I also added a gorgeous piece of Enchanted Collection Lace along the bottom & a few cream Melissa Frances pearls in the top corners.
Flowers are a mixture some are from WOC.

Prima paper, Lace, Memory Box die, Cheery Lynn dies, Pearls & Sarah Kay rubber stamp are all from My Crafty Heart.
All items are very well packaged & very fast delivery, pop along & look at the fabulous items the lovely Teresa has in her store.

Well I will try & look for a challenge or 2 to enter into lol, I never seem to have the time at the min. I am still trying my best to catch up with everyone its just taking its time. However my IBS is playing havoc the last 2 days so I know I will be up all night tonight so I will catch up with you all then lol.

Hi all my lovelies how are you? Well its been a mega hectic weekend & I've barely been on my laptop at all. So this is gonna be a quick post with a card I've managed to make tonight then I can come visit you all & catch up on e-mails lol.
Yes its another SC card & yes ita blue & brown again my defence I had this image coloured ages ago but recently found it & thought I would put her to a card.

The paper is Prima 'Pixie Glen' & I've inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink & matted onto thick kraft card. The tulle is from my stash |& the blue pearls are Prima.

The gorgeous image is of course by the Uber Talented Krista at Saturated Canary, I have cropped the image & coloured her with Copics. I also added Stickles to her eyes to give some sparkle but couldnt catch it on camera.

Inside has been decorated inside as well & I've cut out 2 'Prim Poppies' using a Memory Box die, 1 for inside. I love my dies they have to be my favourite things to use. The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy, its the Fanciful Birthday Notables 1.
