Pom Pom!

Hi everyone 

I hope you are all well and looking forward to a crafty weekend 

Today I want to show you a card I made using some scrumption goodies from The Ribbon Girl .

The current challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog is Use Any Image. Come on over and join us! 

Check out the Ribbon Girl Facebook page too for more inspiration and to see my card featured there today.

I used Copics to colour this gorgeous digi stamp from Lili Of The Valley 

I made a little bow using my bowmaker and tied it using pink button twine. I attached a pink diamante heart charm to the twine before fastening it. 

Ok so you can't really see it but there is a wooden heart under this beautiful cottage trellis rose and sentiment tags. I used more of the button twine to make another bow. 

I just love these pearl loops and the best thing is they really hold their shape so although they come in a loop you can manipulate them into any shape like I did here with this heart. Another of those gorgeous trellis roses and some Anemone make up this spray of lovely pink blooms.

Live Laugh Love - Sugar Nellie

Hi everyone 

todays card has admittedly taken me a few days to finish but I am super pleased with the finished card. I tried a new colour combo and love it! And in a break with tradition for me I actually used 'proper' papers instead of my usual go-to digital papers. I must admit it was nice to just crack on without having to sit and wait for the printer to finish printing them all out. 

So here is todays card using a Sugar Nellie image:

Ribbon, Lace, Pearls & Rose trim - Brenda's Lace & Ribbon Special
Charm - Ebay 
Memo Pin (Tim Holtz) & Glittery and beaded stamens- The Craft Box 

Hair  E57 E55 E53 E51 E50
Skin  E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R21
Dress  R22 R21 R30
Wings  R30 R00 G40
Flowers  R24 R22 R30

Happy New Year!!


Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Year. I wish you all the very best for 2017. 

I haven't blogged for sooooo long! I was swamped down with Christmas cards and found a lot of the fun in crafting died as I was getting so stressed over getting them all finished in time. And I started way back in June!!! 

So finally today I managed to sit and create a card for an upcoming family birthday and hopefully now I am back in the swing of things I will be back to blogging regularly. 

So todays card....
