Good morning everyone I'm here today with my DT card for A Creative Romance, yep its time for a new challenge. Last fortnight we set the theme for Male cards, well this fortnight its............
...............super duper easy!! So no excuse to join along this fortnight.
For my girlies card I used a gorgeous fairy from LOTV, only this time I used an older one. I got this when it was released but unfortunately she has sat un-inked til now :0(

I added Pearl Rose Organza Trim along the top, love this stuff ;0)

The leaves are form a Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl & Leaf'. The large pink flower is from WOC.

As always the inside is decorated to compliment the front. The papers are Magnolia & I've inked them with Pumice Stone & machine stitched them, yep even the ones on the front ;0)

I had to add the swirl, its my favourite die ;0)

This super cute fairy is called 'Never Too Old For A Hug' & I think she may now be my favourite fairy, I totally got lost in colouring her, loved it!! She is coloured with copics, colours used are...
E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin

The sentiment came with the stamp from LOTV |& the frame is from MIC which I've had forever but only found them this week, I covered it in 'Shabby White Frantage'. All of the smaller flowers are from LLC.

Speaking of Live & Love Crafts, do you see my new badge? Yes I applied when Sandy had a DT call for her gorgeous store, I have to say I nearly didnt as I knew she would have a huge response to it & there are soooooooooo many talented crafters out there. However I have 2 dream DT's that I would love to be on & LLC is one of them......I'm not telling you the other one as I know I dont stand a chance of ever getting on there :0( Anyhoo's Sandy got in touch & well...........I'm now on Live & Love Crafts DT wooooooooo hoooooooooooooo. I cant explain how utterly excited, happy, proud & so many other feelings that go along with this.

Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card & New Release info

Hello again my lovelies, I'm back with my DT card for Deep Ocean Challenge, boy are these weeks flying by.
Ok so for this fortnights challenge we have a theme that I know many of you lurve............
..........see told you that many of you love that, I can hear the 'Woops' all around lol.
I have used a Saturated Canary image but I have cropped her. Now I lurve to crop Krista's images a lot because I think Krista draws such pretty faces & soemtimes I think its nice to see it close up. Also it gives a different outlook to an image ;0)
Also back to my foofiness kinda card lol ;0) Its also my first time at No-Lines image so excuse some of the colouring mistakes :0/

Isn't this image just soooooooo gorgeous. This is a birthday card for Natalie off me & her dad, I needed a pretty young lady for her card & well Krista's images were just perfect for the job. This one I went with for the long hair as Natalie's is down to her bottom nearly but is always tied up because she eats it, chews it, dribbles on it............yep you name it lol.

I've used my MS PATP punch set for the edging around the card. All lilac & white card are from my stash, lilac card may have come from Papermill direct but I cant remember.

I lurve this gorgeous lace, its called 'Sephora' from Live & Love Crafts, seriously I could sit & just stroke this one as the feel of it is just gorgeous, its lush & kinda like a silky it!!!
I also threaded some string in the centre of it & added some lush 'Tulle Trim' as well. The lace I machine sewed onto the paper either side of the string.........its definately secure on there lol.

I decorated the inside to compliment the front. The paper I've used is Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics' 6x6 pad, I inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine sewn all the layers. The frame was inked with 'Milled Lavender' distress ink.

So the uber gorgeous image is called 'Ribbons Fairy' & I coloured her with copics & I added pearl dots around using Liquid Pearls. I used the faint lines version of the image to have the no lines effect.
Colours used are..............
E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
E47, E44, E43, E40 & little bit of E79
V99, V95, V93, V91, V00 

The tag I cut from the Maja pad & added numbers for Natalie's age, 22 this year I cant believe how old she is getting. Anyhoo's the numbers I cut from Maja Design 'Its Christmas Time-Die Cut Letters'. The lilac brad is from my stash. The border along the top I cut from the same paper pad. I still need to add a 'Daughter' sentiment.

Items used from Live & Love Crafts Store

Challenges I'm Entering.......
Ribbon Girl - Lilac/Purple

Pocket Birgitta

Hello everyone how are you all?
I'm popping on quickly to show you a card I made using products from Bunny Zoes. Whats more I made a CAS card...........yep me & CAS are becoming friends........woo hoo. Even more shocking is I actually chose my papers first before colouring my image on this card, now its very rare I do that, I always do it the naughty way lol.
I'm also starting to love this colour combo, though this stamp really could pull off any colour ;0)

I used Collall 3D glue under the image to give it a bit of dimension.

The sentiment is from Whimsy & I used a blank ticket & stamped that in Crushed Olive distress ink then added the wording & stamped that in Cocoa Memento. I cut the ticket out using the Whimsy Ticket die. The flag I made from a piece of scrap paper from making the card & attached that & the sentiment with a Pearl Brad.

The stamp is from CC Designs & is called 'Pocket Birgitta' & I coloured her with Copics. I also stamped some Trailing Ivy from a Kaisercraft stamp in Crushed Olive down each side.
Copic colours used are.........
E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E29, E27, E23, E21 - Hair
