Celebrate In Style......CAS Style

Hello everyone how are you all? I'm here with a simple card I made, yes another simple card. I thought I would make myself some more simple cards for flatter posting for friends/bloggy friends birthdays & for peeps who dont like lots of foofiness. Try get them built up on stand-by in between doing my foofy & fancy ones lol.

For todays card I have used another of digi image from All Dressed Up & again lurved colouring this lady up. I've got a blue thing going on for some reason & brown is one of my fave colours in crafting........though I dont like blue in the home!!
Anyhoo's here is my card...............
The papers are the gorgeous Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics' 6x6 pad. The beige-y coloured paper is from 12x12 sheet but cant remember which one except I know it was from LLC :0(
All papers were inked with walnut & machine sewn.

Inside is decorated to compliment the front.

This image is 'Love To Shop' & you get 3 images together, I've just used one of them here.
I coloured her with Copics & added pearls to her top, waistband, bag & shoes. This young lady has style ;0)

Colours I will add soon as I've got my grandson today til tomorrow & he's getting grumpy. Will pop them on in a bit.

The sentiment is Whimsy & I also used the co-ordinating die both from Bunny Zoes. For the corner around part of the image I used my MS PATP. Ribbon is East Of India from my stash.

Well thats it from me I'm off to see to my gorgeous grandson. Thankyou so much for stopping by it means a lot.
Big hugs to you all

Midweek Magnolia Midweek Reminder DT Creation - Winter Blues

Hello everyone how are you all? Things have been busy here, I've got my cupboards getting delivered today for my new craft room...........can only do bits at the mo with hubsters hand still in plaster.

Anyway I'm here today with the midweek reminder for the Midweek Magnolia Challenge & the theme this fortnight is..........
...........which doesn't mean it has to be winter, we just want to see 'BLUE' as your prominent colour. I used this challenge to make my creation for the Live & Love Crafts challenge which is 'Perfume'.
My favourite perfume comes in a blue box, so this was the inspiration for this...............

I made a box for the perfume & matching body lotion...............

Yep my favourite perfume is Dolce & Gabbana 'Light Blue'. The lotion is from a gift set hubster got me last year but the bottle is a new one that hubster got me this last christmas, its tradition loL, even if I still have some left :0) 
The inside of the box is decorated to compliment the top. I have used a 'Doily' & Tim Holtz 'Weathered Clock'. Doily was from Live & Love Crafts.

I have used uber gorgeous Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn Basics' 6x6 pad. I have inked all the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched all layers.

I have made a bow out of this gorgeous Silky Crush ribbon & added the beautiful 'Rhinestone Pendant' & a small bottle from my stash which I filled with German Glass glitter & tied some 'Pearl String' around the top.

The edging is all with my Martha Stewart Around The Page punch.

I have finally inked up one of my new Magnolia's, this one is 'Tilda Rose Scent' from the Lost & Found Collection 2014 at Bunny Zoes. She has been coloured with Copics, colours used are..........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32 - Skin
E29, E27, E25, E23, E21 - Hair
B97, B95, B93, B91, C3, C1, C00 - Gown, Slippers & Bottle
W5, W3, W2, W1 - Ground

I have added WOC flowers & a rolled flower made with a MB die. Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl' die & Tim Holtz 'Weathered Clock' die. 'Metal Corner' & 'Love Heart Clip'. The Shabby Pearl Rose trim, lace & Cheesecloth are all from Live & Love Crafts

Well thats it from me, you have a week left to play along with our challenge & if you need any inspiration then pop on over to see the uber gorgeous creations my talented DT buddies have made.........they always inspire me!!!

Thank you for stopping by it means a lot.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
