Dream Valley 31 - For a special lady


And it's a sunny one and another great challenge from Dream Valley challenges. This fortnight the theme is "for a special lady". The DT has made some fantastic projects for this challenge. It is well worth going to have a nosy! And it's sponsored by Saturated Canary. One lucky winner can get a $10 voucher to spend on her cute images.

For my DT card I have used 'Lost and Found' DP, from My Minds Eye. Am in love with these papers, they are so yummy! I layered the card with lots of black card stock.

The black bling I purchased on Ebay, as well as the buttons. (they came from Japan, looove them!!!) The ribbon was from an old chocolate box from christmas.

The stamp is a digi, by my own design. She is called Frills, and you can find her on Squiggle Stamps. I coloured her in with Promarkers.

Lots of fun making this card. The more embellishments and layers there are, the happier I am. :) Thank you so much for popping by. I am off to hang out lots of washing, before it starts raining again. :S

First birthday card


Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend. Have been such a dull week, the weather has been rubbish. Raining non stop. I have had some time to craft though, since kids have been busy making arts and crafts, watching movies and playing games.

Here is a card I have made for a little girl's first birthday. The papers are called Soft Nostalgia, got these as a freebie from a magazine. Quite like them. :)

I used pearl stick ons, and pearl flourishes from Creative Inspiration. For the bunting, flowers and scalloped circle I used my punches from Stampin Up. The Cupcake I handout. ( I sooo want the Stampin Up Cupcake stamp and punch set!! ) I used my Cricut machine and Storybook cartridge for the number one and the name.

Had lots of fun making this. Hope she likes it. Have a lovely sunday afternoon.

Dream Valley Challenges 29 - Wedding/Love

Happy Easter everyone.

Here is my DT card for this fortnight's Dream Valley challenges. The theme for this time is "wedding/love". You can win a £10 voucher from One Stop Card Crafts.

For my DT I have used DP from First Edition. I used lots of white paper roses from the local craft shop and pink organza roses, which I purchased on Ebay. The pearls and pearl flourishes are from Creative Impressions.

The image is from Magnolia. Had to scan it in and make it smaller to fit the card, and print it out. Coloured the image in with Pro Markers. Did a little bit of distressing on the edges of the papers. Lots of fun making this. And one member of our team has got married. Congratulations Mel!

Thanks for coming by to have a look.  Enjoy the holidays!
