Another quick post for me today and this one is practically all digital! I have used some pages from Dragons Lair Designs for the background and layered up with the beautiful digi from DLD ( I did edit out some of the white in the surround), I added a pleated bow from the same set as the papers and a ribbon to finish it off. I printed it out, coloured the area around the unicorn then layered it up onto some black card and added a little bling, a very quick project that looks great I think!

I will enter this into the Dragons Lair Challenge


I made this card using the lovely digi I won in the FB celebrations last week for the second anniversary of Aurora Wings, this lovely image is Mermaid and Baby and comes in two formats - both are exquisite! I coloured the image with a mix of Promarkers and Copics and added a Wink of Stella to bring out her scales and the blues in her hair.
The die cut is a decorative screen from the Downton Abbey range by Crafters Companion. I hope you like it!

The shells are printed then shaped with an embossing tool, the sentiment is a wooden embellishment from the Works which I have covered in peacock embossing powder and heat embossed, the background is from Tattered Lace.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! This is a sweet Easter image that was sent to me by the very talented Christina Hor!

I made it nice and simple as I needed to mail it to my GD and the UK mail gets expensive it you add embellishments!

Thank you Christina, this is the perfect Easter Digi and I'm sure when you start your store it will sell well!

So wherever you are in the world I hope you have a wonderful Easter and get to spend time with the ones you love!

Puppy Day!

So last week we had National Puppy Day! Festive Friday over at the Outlawz likes to celebrate the unusual days!

I made this card using an Aurora Wings stamp that is sooo cute it could only be used for a lovely celebration of cute puppies!

I used the parquet embossing folders from Crafters Companion for the background, the paw print die cuts are from Joanna Sheen's range. The sentiment was stamped with a freebie stamp on a craft mag then embossed with chocolate embossing powder then inked around the edges, finished with a little bow of paw prints. I coloured the image with Copics.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to check out all the fun themes at Festive Friday!

I will enter this into the latest challenge at Aurora Wings,

Happy St Patrick's Day!

We have a new challenge started at the Outlawz Colour Challenge and it has just a hint of St Patric's Day about it!

This week's challenge was chosen by me and with an Irishman for my lifetime partner I guess St Patrick's Day has to feature this week!
I was also very lucky to have a wonderful digi sent to me from the very talented Christina Hor

Christina will send the digi out to anyone if they contact her!
I needed to make a card for a very dear friend who has just got the all clear following chemo after surgery for lung cancer and I thought this blessing is just so perfect for her!
So here's what I made

Once I had coloured the image I decided it had a distinct Victorian feel to it so I thought I would continue that  style with my design so I edged the image with some green glitter card and surrounded with lace, I used some olive green to matt my background paper onto then covered that with some die cuts from a Heartfelt Creations die that was perfect!
I do hope you like what I have done with Christina's beautiful digi and don't forget to contact her if you would like it!
I look forward to seeing you over at the Colour Challenge this week!

Sweet Daisy!

This is a digi from Miss Daisy Stamps and it its just adorable!

I coloured her with mostly Copics and some Promarkers. The background papers are ones I made and if anyone wants them email me with papers in the subject and I will send them to you, there are 8 in the spring set.

I layered it up onto two shades of blue card and added some blue organza ribbon and some cerise sparkle tape, a die cute sentiment and a couple of butterflies finish it off.

Don't forget to check out Miss Daisy Stamps for some cute and adorable images!
