A Creative Romance Challenge DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Hope all is well, hugs to those who need them.
Running a wee bit late this morning as its been quite hectic here so I will push on.

Okie dokie my lovelies its time for a new challenge over at A Creative Romance & the challenge this fortnight is...............
............if you could see me now I'm doing a Mr Burns impression off The Simpsons 'Eggcellent' hee hee. Anyway basically we want to see easter or springs card, with or without eggs.......its not compulsory..............unless they are choccy then send them to MEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! ;0)
Ok so here is my effort............I have to warn that my mojo has gone off to seek warmer weather I think :0(
Now the organza is straight honest but I missed glueing a part down so when it stands it falls down & then looks unlevel.............I have reattached it now but didnt have time take new pics this morn, these were took late last night.

.........see if you look now they are level lol. The gorgeous lace & organza is from LLC. I will try add proper links at the bottom later.

I havn't added a place to write a message yet as I wanted show you this gorgeous paper as a lot of it is covered on the front. The paper I've used is Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics' 6x6 pad...........I tell you this pad really is soooooooooooo gorgeous.

All the flowers are from WOC a while ago, the leaves are a Magnolia Doo-Hickey die.

I used Magnolia 'Hello Tilda' & coloured her with distress ink markers. I'm not a fan of yellow tbh as I think it shows lol..........never mind suppose I've got to do it sometimes lol. The sentiment is from a Hanglar Easter stamp.

I've added 'Cheesecloth' under the image & a shabby bark heart both of these are from LLC.

Well that's it form me but if you want real GORGEOUS inspiration then PLZZZZZZZZ pop on over to see my teamies totally amazing creations they are a talented bunch.

Well I'm off now to carry on with washing & housework, really need do my windows but think they will have to wait til I have more time :0(

Thanks for stopping by my lovelies, take care.

Hello all you lovely jubbly people, how are you all? We are all fine & dandy here & Mr Sunshine has that lovely hat on this morning ;0)

Ok I have a card today that I made a couple of weeks ago using a stamp I've had since I first started crafting............yep its took me over 3 years to ink this stamp (I'm now bowing my head in shame) In my first year hubster was that happy I finally had a hobby after over 20 years of my hobby being the family & the house brought me a lot of stamps in that first year & I have no idea how many are still un-inked from Sugar Nellie to Magnolia & everything in between lol. However as I'm trying to sort my stamps out maybe I can finally get some of them inked lol.
Now I'm not sure I even like this card, probably why its took me this long to blog it lol.
The stamp I've used is called 'Maribel' & its by Stempelglede, I have no idea where I would have brought it from sorry.

One of the things I do like about this card is the uber gorgeous paper, which is of course Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn Basic's' 6x6 pad. I inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched all around the edges.

I've decorated the inside exactly the same but left the brown seam binding off, which is from my stash. I added Pearl Dots around the edge of the centre bit.

The doily is from LLC. The charm thingy-ma-jig is by Bo Bunny, cant remember which set it is though. The swirl is of course a Magnolia Doo-Hickey.

The flower is by Prima & the leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns', these are my favourite leaf die I have to say, although you've probably noticed lol. The edging is a MS PATP. The metal corner was from LLC ages ago lol. I've not added a sentiment yet, not sure what I will do with it tbh :0/

There is a 15% off across the entire shop over at Bunny Zoes, so go grab a bargain lovelies.

Well thats it from me I have bedrooms & bathrooms to clean...........hopefully will get to my craft room later as I've not done any for a few days :0(

Thank you so much for stopping by, sorry I'm behind again its one of those weeks where time flies by & dont have time to do everything.
Anyhoo's take care & enjoy your day mmwah
Tatty bye xxxxxxxxxxxx

Vintage Mother's Day

Hello everyone how are you all? I want to say a huge thankyou regarding the comments on Arjay & Payton, they really meant a lot...........arn't they so squishy & gorgeous ;0)

Anyhoo's I thought I would show you the Mother's Day card I made for my step-mum, I didnt want to post it before incase she saw it obviously. She likes vintage style ones so thats what I made for her.
The colours I took from this gorgeous paper I've used which is Pion Love Song 6x6' from the 'From My Heart' collection which are discontinued so its your last chance to grab these. IRL these papers really are so pretty.......I've had them since last year.
I have decorated inside to compliment the front, I didnt gether the lace on the inside though. The stamping I've done with a stamp from LOTV

The key is from Crafts & Me. The laces & seam binding is from my stash, the middle lace I have gathered & folded to create that look either side of the image. I've also added a Magnolia 'So Wrapped Lovely' tag in the corner. 

The cameo I made myself last year. All the flowers are from WOC, the peach ones I've had forever, they really are lush!! The die is a MB one.

The gorgeous vintage image is from Live & Love Crafts, its called 'Little Sweeties' - From Grandma's Attic. I heat embossed with just one layer of UTEE, inked it with walnut & cracked it a little.

The corner is with a Marianne Corner die & I've added scalloped pearls to the corners. The doilies are from my stash.

I think thats it for me, I meant post this earlier but weve been down Megan & Bens for makes a lovely change have someone cook for us lol. It was lovely. 

I have some DT work to catch up with but I will be round to as many of you as I can later.
Take care my lovelies & thank you so much for stopping by & your continued support.
