My Crafty Heart DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action I've been ill with Pancreatitis again so barely even been on my laptop, so I'm sorry if I'm late back replying to emails I will catch up today. I'm also looking after payton this weekend as Ben & Megan are moving to a new house thats 3 mins walking distance from us so they are closer. So while they decorate ready to move in on tuesday we are having Payton.........ok so I told them I was well ssshhhhh dont tell them ok!!

Anyhoos I'm here today with My Crafty Heart DT Card & I've coloured a Sugar Nellie image, I know I havnt done one for so long, this I coloured in a couple of days after release.
Yes I got a couple of these new adorable's which are so rightly named dont you think? She is called 'Sophia' & of course is a digi image from Funky Kits.

The papers are the gorgeous MME 'Paris & Co', I still love this pad, although it is nerly all gone :0(

I've used Blue 'Serenade' flowers & 2 'Silentium' flowers. I added 'Anja Leaves' die, 'Anja Corner' die & 'Vintage Birdcage' die & I added a 'Songbird' Tile on the top.

I coloured the beautiful image with copics & prisma pencils, although these are easier to colour I end up working harder to add my own shading...........yea they dont get much weirder than me ;0)
I also added 2 small 'Pearls' to her hair.

I added 'Pearls' to the corners of the card as well. The raffia trim along the middle is from my stash, I cant remember where I originally got it.

Ingredients used...........
MME 'Paris & Co' papers 
Prima 'Serenade' blue flowers
Prima 'Silentium Tea Thyme' flowers
Melissa Frances Pearls
Marianne Creatables 'Anja Levaes' die
Marianne Creatables 'Anja Corner' die
Memory Box 'Vintage Birdcage' die
Prima 'Songbird' tiles
All the above ingredients are of course from My Crafty Heart.

I made the card with A4 dark brown card to help set off the kraft card that I used for matting.

Pop on over to Teresa's store she has a fab sale on & some new lovely MB dies due in very soon :0)

Midweek Magnolia's - Tilda On A Tag

Good morning all you lovelies out there, I'm running a wee bit late this morn as I have just got back from school run & forgot to do my post last night.
Its time for a new challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's & this weeks theme is a fabby one......
Actually it doesn't have to be Tilda, it could be Edwin, or a cute long as you have a Magnolia image on a tag then come join in the fun. 
I have made something inspired from the uber talented Jane what I remember seeing in my first year of crafting. Sorry cant link to the actual post as it was about 2 years ago, I dont remember the colour or anything except it was christmas themed (I think lol) anyway it was fab, so this is what I've made ;0)
I made a gift tag holder, so I always have gift tags on hand whenever needed. The first one I made I did a different shape & too big, the tags got lost in it lol, you will see that next week ;0) So I made a circle one using my largest circle & scallope circle dies..........

Flowers are, Cream Carnation & 2 Pink Fabric Daisies & Magnolia Creamy Berries & die cut leaves.

Stamps I've used are 'Tilda With Love Music' (on front as well), 'Tilda With Dot Bow' (although its hidden lol) & my fave 'Tilda With Heart Socks', will explain why she is my fave another time ;0)

I also did some tags using 'Chocolate' stamp.........had to have this one ;0)

I also added one to the back of the gift tag holder. Tag dies used are Magnolia 'Scalloped Tag' &
 Magnolia 'Vintage Tag', my fave tag '0) I also added 2 Scalloped Pearls.

I added more Scalloped Pearls either side & cut the end off a Joy Crafts die-cut & attached some gorgeous 'Ash Rose' Shabby Seam Binding.

The papers are the new Magnolia 'Dream Roses' & I inked the edges. I also added 'Cheesecloth' under the tag on the front. All images were of course coloured with my copics.

I really enjoyed making & designing this & will make more, maybe larger though for other things lol.

Do pop on over to see my uber talented teamies cus after their wee christmas break they have come back with a bang!!!

Right I have loads of blogging to catch up on so will see you soon. Thank you for stopping by & hope you liked what you have seen today ;0)

This is the card that I made for Payton's birthday (2nd January) off her auntie Natty & Uncle Jake..
Sorry about the pics these were taken before my new bulbs arrived as obviously I no longer have the card to re-take the photo' next ones will be better ;0)
I lurve gingham & Payton has it on quite a few things in her bedroom so I just had to include it on her card didn't I ;0) I added pink lace underneath as well & a sewn a nice blingy button to the bow.

This is the inside which I decorated spellbinders Marvelous Squares, I love this die!! I also added a Heart from the Marianne die.

The stamp is of course a new one from Magnolia's 'With Love' collection, I sooooooooooo love this collection... This is 'Tilda With Dot Bow' & I coloured her with copics then fussy cut her & popped her onto foam squares so she could lie along the letters :0)

I also added Spellbinders 'Flourish Trim' from their D-Lites collection.
The letters & numbers I've had since I started crafting so cant remember where they are from, they are Woodware says on the back lol.

The papers I've used are Magnolia 'Pink Butterfly' & the bottom 'Hearts' one I cant find, sorry. I added MF 'Pearls' to each corner & added some 'Cheesecloth' ;0) I didnt want a load of embellishments on as it would have distracted the eye too much.........some things call for less foofiness dontcha think lol.

Happy Birthday Ben

Hello everyone how are you all? Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm sorry there was nothing on my blog yesterday we had a complete family day so apart from answering a couple of emails I didnt use my lappy.
Payton walked the width of my conservatory last night more than 15 steps on her own, proud grnadma moment going on here :0) We were all clapping for her & everything she got so excited bless her lol.

Anyway I thought I would show you the card I made for Bens birthday, as most of you know he is an apprentice plumber............ ;0)
Isn't this image the soon as I saw it I brought it straight away its perfect for Ben, dont forget the plumber's bum lol (yep its not just builders lol)

The tag I made cut out the sentiment from the DP'S & attached it to a 'Trinket Pin', if you knew Ben you would understand why this sentiment is perfect.

The papers are the gorgeous Lost & Found 'Breeze', I love this pad really need to get another one.

The company Ben works for is a large housing company, one of the largest in the North East & on the side of all the work vans it says 'Making The Difference' I had to write it on the side of the image lol.

The fabulous image is from Just Inklined & is called 'DIY King' I coloured the image with copics & added Glossy Accents to the water to give it that realistic look lol.
I have to say I dont normally enjoy doing male cards but this I thoroughly enjoyed :0) Ben absolutely loved it, so much he wants put it in a frame lol.

Sorry about the poor lighting these were took over a week ago when my bulb had gone grrrrrr. I did make him one off Natalie & Jake as well but forgot to take photo's lol.

Anyway I'm off to come visit you all now before I get back to my DT work. Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by it means the world to me.
