Saturated Canary Challenges - Princess Reading Beauty

Hello everyone how are you all? I want to thank you all for your lovely comments lately & for sticking by me, time just seems to keep running out at ts calledhe mo lol.

Anyhoo's I'm here today with my DT card for a new challenge over at Saturated Canary & this week we have a super duper easy theme for you.............
ANYTHING GOES easy is that!! So let your creativity free & let your imagination go wild ;0)
I have had a go at making a 'Ramkort' I think its called. I brought some new LOTV stamps & on there saw Dena's Ramkort.......well it blew me away & I knew I had to have a go. 
Did not turn out quite as I had hoped but I will be making more as I enjoed making it. The tutorial you can get here & the instructions are really easy to follow ;0) If I can do it anyone can lol.

The papers are from 2 pads of Bo Bunny. The blue one is from 'Welcome Home'. I made little scrolls with scraps from the paper I used behind the image. That is from an older Bo Bunny pad

Flowers are from WOC.

Decorated inside with a complimentary paper as always.
The image is 'Princess Reading Beauty' from Saturated Canary, she is available as digi & as a rubber stamp. I have coloured this image with Copics, however I dont have the colours as I coloured this image a couple of months ago & found her in my coloured up box of images.

I fussy cut the image out & placed her on a clock die. I made a scroll for the top with some spools from LLC & the sentiment is from a sheet of Pion papers.

Krista has released some fabby new digi images to her store here.
Egg-tra Special On the Edge

Not My Day Tea and a Book
They are all fabby & I cant wait to colour them up ;0)

We hope you will join us in our challenge this fortnight, pop on over to see my teamies fabbylicious creations............totally gorgeous as always ;0)

Midweek Magnolia's Challenge - Fancy Folds

Hello everyone how are you all? We have a beautiful sunny day here by the sea today so hubster is cutting the lawn & doing some de-weeding in the front garden before we end up with a jungle........mmm I reckon he would make a good Tarzan ;0)

Anyhoo's back to reality lol we have of course a new challenge this week over at
  Midweek Magnolia's & it is...........drum rollllllllll
.......yep thats right we wanna see fancy folds, whether it be an easel card or envelope card get the picture dont you lol.
I took the easy option & went for an easel card, although in all honesty I did this card last week but didnt put the foofiness on & it wasn't meant for this challenge but I ran out of time it is lol.

I brought this little sweetie as soon as they were released.......yes its took me til now to ink her up. I was in my hobbit last night & found a stamp from the collection before that was still un-opened......I need putting on a ban or more goodies!!! Lets pretend that wasn't wrote ok ;0)

All of the yummy gorgeous flowers are of course from WOC. The 'Swirl' is my favourite Magnolia Doo-Hickey die.
Excuse this piccy...... The dies I've used are Go-Kreate XXL 'Scalloped Circles' & XXL 'Circles'.

The stamp is 'Cute Little Tilda' & my I think she's one of the cutest little maggies. I have coloured her with my Distress Markers as I wanted a soft look to her, this little girl cries out for soft & delicate. I have also added Shabby pink & white Fran-Tage.
The gorgeous papers are the new MME 'Lost & Found-Madison Avenue' these are sooooooo yummy they really are!! The sentiment is from my wood stamp stash & the tags are Magnolia 'Dream Tag' . The pearls are from my stash. The cute little 'Baby Clothes' die is by Memory Box from My Crafty Heart.
Ribbon, lace & doilies are from my little craft room ;0)

Well thats all from me folks but please pop on over here to see my teamies wonderful creations.....seriously peeps they are all truly gorgeous!!!!!!

Thank you sooooooooo much for popping in I will be round laters, right I'm off to get some cleaning done.

Squishy hugs to you all mmwah

Feeling blue...........

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Hope you have better weather than we do, its absolutely pouring it down :0( Still the plants & lawns need a good watering ;0)

I'm here with a card that I did, I think nearly 2 weeks ago but completely forgot to blog it........dont know where my mind is these days lol. I'm not really feeling blue but my card is full of the blues ;0)
I finally inked this little lady up when I got my new markers..........
I've used 'Blue Cross Tilda' I love anything to do with crosses & angels so this was my first Magnolia stamp in the basket when this collection was released lol.

The ribbon is East Of India ribbon from my stash & I'm not sure where the coin charm is from, I cant remember. Lace is also from my stash.

I love all products by Melissa Frances including her Vellum Envelopes & Tags. However I decided to make my own Vellum Envelope & use up the abundance of vellum I have lol. I made the envelope, I scalloped the top edges I also added Shabby Blue Fran-Tage & embossed it with a butterfly folder. Then added a Magnolia tag. Quite pleased for my first attempt ;0)

The 3 blue flowers are from WOC & the rolled flowers I used a Marianne die & popped Blue Pearls inside. I've also added Gesso to the flowers.

This Tilda is of course from the Special Moments 2013 collection & I coloured her with Tim Holtz distress markers. Cannot remember the colours as this was coloured when I first had my markers so this was a practice one lol. 
The frame is Spellbinder 'Floral Oval' & I added 'Shabby Blue' Fran-Tage & also inked the edges with walnut distress ink.

As always inside is decorated. The gorgeous papers I've used is my favourite of all paper makes....
Maja Design - 'Vintage Spring' - these are from my 6x6 pad. I distressed them a wee bit & inked the edges with walnut distress ink. I also added the beautiful new Joy Crafts 'Butterfly Border' I lurve butterflies so have to get new butterfly dies & this one is a beauty!! This too also got the fran-tage treatment ;0)

Ooooh have you seen the new Magnolia Sea Breeze release Maggie fans? Mine came through my letter box on friday........oooh as soon as I saw Sir Stamp A Lot on the envelope I was beaming.....well once I had chased hubster round the kitchen table to get it off him lol. 

I also got new stamps yesterday from a different company so its not just new magnolia images you will be seeing for those of you that are not Magnolia fans ;0)

Well I'm off to do some hopping before my grandaughter arrives so will see as many as I can soon & the rest laters. Thank you soooooo much for your lovely comments especially on my Prima doll tag in the post below, it really means a lot.

Oh before I forget I've had a few emails asking me if I'm selling my copics, I am NOT selling them or giving up on them, I want to be able to colour with all different mediums my next one will be to master Prisma pencils. I love the vibrancy of copics however sometimes I want a soft delicate look & nothing does that like distress inks/markers.

Lotsa squishy hugs Vicky xxxxxxxxxx
