Woohoo!! How lucky was I then??? I won a Lili of the Valley prize from the 'Cardmaking & Papercraft' Magazine. As well as 10 sheets of toppers like this one I won 10 of their beautiful stamps & 1 set of their circular sentiments!
I just added a computer generated 'magic wand' image & sentiment to this one with some pink mirri matting, some ribbon & then some Stickles. Melissa will love it. Still can't believe I won!
Well posting these pics was a job and a half! I was given a new camera for my birthday & didn't check the settings. The photos were all 3.1mb when I downloaded them & it's taken me ages to figure out how to change them in the photo editor. Got it now though so just need to remember. Huh ... that'll be a laugh.
Stamped image is Lili of the valley 'Love Grows' coloured with Promarkers. Nestabilities for matting & layering, Anitas sticky ribbon (now there's a blast from the past - found it in my stash!) Mark Richard Pearls, Cheery Lynn leaf swirl & think the butterfly is Marianne.
In my excitement at buying new LOTV stamps at SECC yesterday I managed to pick up 2 of this little cutie.....
She's called 'Positively Pampered'. (Pic taken from LOTV website as I haven't had a chance to use her yet) Their new range are due for general release 10th November. They had a few of them at SECC but I believe they will have all the new ones available next weekend at NEC.
Anyway ... I digress. If you'd like to have this little beauty just add a comment to this post & I'll randomly select a winner on Wednesday evening. Good luck.
LOTV stamp from the girls set coloured with Promarkers. Cheery Lynn flourish. Floral edge from a Cottage Cutz die. Nestability large scalloped dies. Flowers I found in my flower box. I think someone gave me them. This card is for my Aunt who will be 97 and she'll just love it cos it'll remind her of when my sister & I stayed with her and used to dress up in all her finery & try all her lipsticks & perfumes, yep ALL at one time!
Base card from a kit from C&C (Hunkydory possibly?) Heart pocket template from a friend on ex Imag-e-nation forum, Cuttlebug embossing. Cheery Lynn die cut for leafy flourish. Marianne & Nestability squares for sentiment. Self adhesive flat back pearls. I do like white on white with just a little colour.
Coloured with Promarkers (as usual! Can't wait to get some Flexmarkers). Marianne & Nestabilities. My new Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish which I just love!! Don't be surprised if you see it on every card from now till Christmas! Cottage Cutz border die & Mark Richards pearls. Oh and a touch of glitter on her net petticoat & wings.
Isn't she just so cute! Had to cut the circle with my circle cutter as I don't have any Grand Nesties. Yet!! LOTV stamp of course, coloured with Promarkers & a little sparkle added. The kids just love that it moves.
Can't you just imagine the conversation that's gone before on this one!
Another of my LOTV purchases from the SECC coloured with Promarkers.
Martha Stewart edge punch, Nestabilities Labels, Die-Namics Scallop Border on the edge of the backing paper which is a digi image I've had so long I can't remember where from. Flowers from Docrafts I think. And the die behind the sentiment Nestie is Nellie Snellen. Added some stickles to her tiara & the flowers but not visible in the photo.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums out there. Hope you've enjoyed your day.
Once again this year have sold cards I made to my colleagues & will be sending the proceeds to 'Breast Cancer Care'. I just can't believe how generous people are! Have raised £93 to send which is more than last year & I thought that was good. Many thanks to all who donated.
All the cards have the same basic ingredients - Spellbinders Butterfly, Martha Stewart Edge Punch or Doo Hickey, Ribbon & Self adhesive gem stones, Cuttlebug Embossing folder. One or two had Metallic Rubons added on to embossing & some had Stickles added to the butterfly wings.
Married with one step son who is currently living in Germany. Love cardmaking but spend more time looking at websites & blogs on the subject rather than actually making! But hey who's counting. Hope can keep this blog going. Please feel free to comment, good or bad. I like to read your comments & then I can use the link back to your blog for a visit.
Welcome to my little space in blog land and thanks for visiting. I'd welcome your comments cos I just love reading them. Constructive criticism is always useful. But would appreciate if you could please respect my right not to have any of my cards copied or entered for competitions or publication without my permission. Thank you.
