Deep Ocean Challenges DT Cards

Hello everyone I'm with my late DT card for our new challenge this fortnight over at Deep Ocean Challenges which is...........

OUR FURRY or FEATHERED FRIENDS I had no time to make anything & also because I got totally mixed up with my weeks. Luckily though I have cards that have not been blogged. The ones I'm showing you today have got Furry Friends on & whats more they were Easter cards for my family.
These were actually made the morning of Easter Sunday whilst hubster was out with our 2 sons having his father & sons time. So they took me about an hour as they were early back.......thats good going for normally takes me 3 times that to make a card lol.

All paper was from my stash & I grabbed the 1st ones I saw that went with the image lol.
All the images are LOTV Simply Print which are fabulous, I love them....perfect for those last minute cards.

I kept all the layouts pretty much the was easier than re-thinking a new design for every one & remember I dont do a lot of CAS.........CAS takes a lot longer for a foofy mortal like me ;-)

Yes & even though it was a rush I still machine stitched every card & every image.
The Easter stamps used are both Magnolia stamps from Sir Stamp A Lot.
Card blanks are form my stash as is the seam binding. & little handmade charms on all 3.

The images used are..........
First card on the left (in photo above) - Easter Tricks
Middle Card - Cart Full Of Sunshine
Third card (on the right) - Easter Sweeties
All images were printed out onto matt photo paper as I didnt want a high glossy look from a photo.

Thats it peeps, short & sweet today. Please pop on over to see my teamies fabulous creations & hope you will bring your Furry Friends to come play........

Thanks for stopping by, big hugs

It Is Your Day Today

Hello everyone, how are you all?
Its been quite a week for us, we went away on Monday for a few days in the caravan but unfortunately Natalie got took into the RVI hospital on the Tuesday with suspected Pneumonia. Thankfully its not that & its a chest infection, she is quite poorly but at home now. A long time ago we brought blood pressure & sat monitors etc so we can keep an eye on all those.

Anyway I thought I would show a card that I've not shown yet, I have a few I've not shown yet but lets start with one I made back in January I think it was lol.
I had an order for 4 cards off a lady & one of the cards had to be vintage & here it is....
The gorgeous papers that I immediately went to are Pion Design.....unfortunately I could not decide between 2 I used both together.
I used paper from 'Scent Of Lavender' & 'Where The Roses Grow' both collections from Noor Design UK.

I added some gorgeous white lace along the bottom which you can just see peeking out & then some fablous purple lace with flowers on on the top. I've also added Cheesecloth under the image too.
All of these from Noor Design UK.

Of course as always I decorated inside, sorry I forgot to take pics of inside & of course this card went a very long time ago lol.
The image on the front is from the 'Where The Roses Grow' collection off sheet 'Images From The Past' I cut it out with a postage die & cut out a sentiment from a Pion sheet along the bottom saying....'It Is Your Day Today'
The butterflies are also Pion & I added crackle accents to them & some fine pearl string to the centre.
Doilies are from my stash & I added lots of WOC flowers & the leaves were made using Rosy Owl dies from Noor Design UK.

Thats it from me I will show you another card tomorrow. I also made a card for the Maja Design Mood Board beginning of this month so will show you that over the weekend.

Hope you have a super weekend, hopefully the weather will be nice, its awful here today.....wet & miserable!! 

Take care & thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Shabby Chic Penguin

Hello everyone how are you all?

I'm here today with my DT post for Noor Design UK & this week I have something a little different.
Tracy sent me the Dutch Doobadoo Penguin Card Art template, so I decided to see if I could make a shabby chic penguin ;-)
Do you wanna see...........
I have to say I had quite a bit of fun making this lol. I was going to add something else but time ran out for me as I had to get it done before we went away yesterday....yes I'm hoping this has published!!

Have you seen the wee iddy biddy penguins.......its like they are the babies lol.
I cut them out with the die (links bottom of post) then added Pumice Stone ink whilst they were still in the dies. They were cut out using the same Maja Design paper as the penguin' hat....just the reverse side.

Speaking of the hat,how darn cute is that. I cut it out using Maja Design Summertime paper, both sides were used & I added pearl trim to the bottom &lace &a charm to the bobble part.
The nose was cut out using Pion Design Witching Hour, I moulded it a bit so it was flat against the face. I just glued one edge on so it was sticking out.

I was going to make a Penguin shaped card but instead made a box.......should put Penguin choccy biscuits in but didnt have any in unfortunately lol.

I added Snowflake buttons & seam binding for a scarf with a bit of added lace & of course a bit of bling. I distressed the paperto go with the whole shabby chic feel.

I quite like my penguin, think I will be making a few of these for the grandkids.....they will love em!!

Tracy has added lots & LOTS of new items to her store so why not pop on over to take a peek at everything.

Thanks for stopping by, I will do a big catch up when I'm back later this week.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
