My Crafty Heart DT Card

Hello everyone, guess what its the weekend wooo hoooo. Thanks for the positive thoughts regarding Arjay with his tests. There was a big chance that our lil man was deaf as you could make loud bangs & he wouldnt even blink, not even when a doctor stood behind him & banged on his desk. However his tests have come back satisfactory, although at first they thought he was deaf in one ear. So this is good news up to now, yayyyyyyyyy...... do you know what that means............ he really likes my singing!! He always smiles when I sing to him....... lol.

Anyhoo's onto my quickie card that I have for you today using goodies from My Crafty Heart.
I have used a Magnolia stamp from last years collection Christmas Story (possibly my fave collection) this one is 'Tilda On The Roof' coloured with copics.

The gorgeous papers are from 2 MME pads. The main papers are from MME 'Lost & Found Christmas' & the piece of paper with Merry on it is from MME 'Vintage Christmas'. All papers have been inked & machine stitched.

The banner is LLLC 'Heart Banner' & I added pearls from my stash & letters from Maja Design 'Die Cut Letters'.

I added gorgeous MF 'Lace Trim' up the side. The plaited one on top is from my stash. The large flower is also from my stash. The dies I've used are MB 'Snowflake Border' & MB 'Fresh Foliage' . The gems are 

There is a big sale over at My Crafty Heart so why not get over & do some crimbo shopping.

Let It Snow.....

Hello everyone how are you all? Sorry I am late getting round, Payton didnt want go home yesterday when Ben & Megan were leaving & we felt so sorry for her cus she was crying cus she wanted stay at nanna & yes, we had her stay at ours. Well whats a nanna to do  ;0)

Anyway's I do have a card, I did mean to do it earlier but I've been stalking the LOTV shop for the new stamps & lots of others lol..............well they had a sale!!! Then late this afternoon we took Payton home (yep had tears again ) & had a cuppa with Megan & kisses with Arjay.
So here's my card............finally lol.
The papers are my absolute fave paper Maja Design & these are from the new Vintage Frost Basics. I have used '9th December' & '10th December' both sheets have been inked with Pumice Stone DI & machine stitched. I've also added white gesso to them.

The lace with the pearl centre is from my stash & the lace thats on the tag is also from my stash.

I have added a large sparkly snowflake which was from Asda last year. The 2 flowers I've made with a MB die with the same paper & inserted a Tim Holtz 'Bauble' inside each one. I also added white gesso to these as well. I also added Magnolia 'Vintage Berries' in blue.
This is the inside complimenting the front. Excuse my thumb in the corner again............I really need to keep that thing out of the way lol. The frame is spellbinders but I dont think you can get these anymore. I've had this nearly since I started crafting. I inked it up with Pumice Stone.

The tag is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey & the sentiment is a wood block one from my stash. The tree is a Marianne Design die which I have covered in glass glitter...........wish I could capture the sparkle on it :0(
I also added a Tim Holtz Bauble to the lace on the tag.

The uber cute image is of course LOTV James Bear 'Santa Stop Here' I lurve James Bear & I've been wanting the one with the christmas tree for ages but its always been out of stock, even when I placed my order this afternoon. However when I went to get the link for this stamp I saw he was in stock...........yes yes yes I got him lol. I dont care I didnt get 20% off him I'm just happy to have him woooooo hooooooo.
He has been coloured with distress markers & stardust stickles added to his hat. I also added glamour dust to the snow.

The bracket-y thingies were made with Joy Crafts 'Edge' which I cut in half & inked up with Pumice Stone DI.

Well thats it from me but lastly I do want say a huge thank you for your lovely comments about Arjay. I have been asked how long does he have the cast on for & all we know is about 5-6 months depending on scans, hopefully it wont be any longer than that. 

Thank you for stopping by, huge hugs to all

Vintage Angel

Hello everyone how you all? Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
Todays card is a Vintage card that I made for the photo inspiration challenge over at Live & Love Crafts. However we were at Ben & Megans yesterday then me & hubster cuddled & watched movies last night & I forgot all about it.......never mind lol. Also tbh I'm not that happy with how it turned out, in my head it was much better & very different...damn it!!
Anyhoo's here is the all its..........????
I have used the uber gorgeous new Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics paper & this one is '19th December' I inked the edges with walnut, distressed them & machine stitched them.

The corner is a Joy Crafts die, which was also inked with Pumice Stone. The flowers are from WOC & I also added 'White Frosted Berries'. I also added a 'Shabby Bark Heart''Birch Pine Cones'. I added bits of white gesso to everything.

The dies used are Joy Crafts 'Snowflakes Ice Crystals 3' & Square Frame & Marianne Design 'Poinsettia' & 'Pine Branch', the dies have been inked with Pumice Stone. The snowflakes have had shabby white fran-tage on them & scalloped pearl centres added.

This gorgeous image is 'Vintage Angels' by Inkado. I machine stitched around it & added bits of white gesso.

Inside is decorated as always. The lace is from LLC.  I've also added Marianne Design 'Rudolph' die to the front, again inked up with Pumice Stone.

Also I thought I would show you a pick of Arjay in his cast. We know its gonna do him good in the long run but OMG its awful not being able to hug him as he's gotta stay absolutely flat at all times.
Here he is at mine on a bean bag with his blanket underneath him.
The cast goes up to his waist with just a bit cut out for his bum. He has 2 nappies on, his normal one that has to be changed & then a bigger one over the top as you cant fasten his normal one as it causes him discomfort. The only way we hold him is on a pillow across our legs :0( He's still obviously in discomfort but we have had lots of gorgeous smiles from him in between bless him, you know the ones that melt your heart....

Anyhoo's I'm gonna go do some blog hopping. Thank you all for your lovely comments especially about Arjay they really do mean the world.
Thank you for stopping by & I hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous mmwah
