My Thank You Candy...........

Hello all my lovely poppets out there. Well I'm here with the candy at last. The beautiful Krista is feeling a little bit better today bless her so she sent me the  gift certificate.
Now I was going to sort through some of my crafty stash for some candy but as I hop along blogland I see what a lot of people are loving at the moment & hey who can blame them, they are my fave digi's I love them soooooooooooo much I really do. I also know that there are peeps who havn't had chance yet to try these beauties so I asked the lovely Krista to draw me up a gift certificate to an amount that I thought would allow you to pick a good choice of images........

 So the amount for my Thank You Candy is for $40 from Saturated Canary 
Isn't this image just sooooooooooo gorgeous & I soooo love her bow!!!
This will allow you about 10 images unless you choose more expensive ones of course.
 This gift certificate will be sent to the winner via e-mail there is a little bit missing a the bottom which contains the code, obviously I cant reveal that so I've cropped the image. The winner will of course get the full certificate which then they can redeem at Saturated Canary for the value of  $40. 

Now for the few little rules............
1. You DONT have to be a follower, only follow if you like my blog & like what you see. This is a thank you to all the ones that follow me & have to put up with me lol.
2. Put a piccy of the fabby image Krista drew for my candy in your sidebar with a link back here.
3. Only crafters with blogs can enter, no candy only blogs please as its not fair on crafters who regulary blog
Thats it...........easy peasy.

Hello again my lovelies wow today has been soooooo hot, its gorgeous!!
Anyhoo I'm back again with my Midweek Magnolia DT card.........yep wee bit late but its me & I'm ditzy, I really am..........I think I should have been blonde you know!!
Anyway this week we have a super duper sketch for you, you know I love my layers & this is fab for it plus scope to add my foofy bits.........a girl has to have foof lol.
I've used an image that I coloured up last year & I heard her crying from my box of images, so just had to use her & give her a home on a card..........
As her dress was blue it suited me to do my fave colours which on a card is blue & brown followed very closely by pink & brown lol.

The gorgeous papers are again the new Prima 'En Francais' & have been inked at the edges & matted onto thick kraft card. The thin strip is a scrap of Magnolia paper called 'Blue Wedding'. I  also punched 3 holes & attached gold eyelet things lol & threaded string through.

The gorgeous satin ribbon is from my stash. I've used 2 magnolia doo-hickey dies, the flags (bunting)
the swirl, I edged the flags with ink & threaded bakers twine through them & stamped the letters on them.
Flowers & bakers twine are from Crafty Emma's.

This is 'Farewell Tilda' from the Bon Voyage collection & she was coloured with copics. No idea which ones & the colouring I did soooooooo long ago lol.

Blue sparkly gems are also from my stash as is the die that I used to cut out the arrow thingy & stamped 'You' on it.............miss you....

Well today its time for a new challenge over at Crafts & Me Challenges & this week its the Rockin' Rubbah's turn to entertain you & this week our uber talented Karina has set the theme which is.......
An easy one dont you think, basically bring us those gorgeous winged fairies.....we all love 'em!!
Here is my Elegant Fairy which Teresa over at Crafts & Me has an abundant supply off in rubber & digi.
I have used the so so beautiful 'Night Blossom' this pretty little thing has only ever been inked for a show sample so I thought she deserved proper attention lol. The thing with Teresa's stamps is you can make them subtle & soft go to Karina's here to see or colour them boldly they really do suit so many styles. I sooooooooo love Teresa's stamps, always have!!!!!!!!
The flowers are from my stash, the middle rose is from WOC & the larger flower was from Crafty Emma's.
The little scrolls are actually tickets I rolled up so thats why you can see numbers on them.

Of course 'Night Blossom' is by the fabulous artist Janna Prosvirina. She was of course coloured with Copics colours used are.......
E13 E21 E00 E000
C9 C7 C5 R46
R59 R46 R05
C3 C1 COO & white gel pens for her wings & to highlights the spots on the flowers.
Her hair I was originally doing black but then decided to add red for a bit of drama lol. It looks lush IRL.

The gorgeous paper is the new Prima paper 'En Francais' which is so gorgeous. I inked the edges & matted onto grey card. The fence is from a memory box die 'Wrought Iron Fence' & I've used Melissa Frances pearls in the top corner. All these you can get from My Crafty Heart.
Lace, ribbon & muslin are from my stash.

Well thats it from me hope you will join us this week with your fairies & why not pop along to Crafts & Me to see the whole range of things there are. Also why not sign up for the newsletter, there are new releases coming soon & newsletter readers get a 10% discount on all new rubber.........

My Crafty Heart DT Card - Dance & Be Happy

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Its soooooo bootiful here by the sea today lovely blue skies & lots of sunshine. A bit late today as I've got my grand-daughter still cus Ben & Megan have taken my youngest & gone Wet & Wild, its a water theme world, lots of slides etc, its canny actually!!
Anyway I am here with my card today with a new stamp that my fabby boss Teresa from My Crafty Heart sent me, these are new to her store & are sooooooooo cute!!!
This is a Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp & this one is 'Let's Dance' which is soooooo me lol!!!

Papers are the gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Be Happy' which I thought suited this image so well. I've edged the edges with chalk ink & matted onto thick kraft card.

I've decorated inside to compliment the front except I've put the 2nd layer straight instead of at an angle. I've also added Hug Snug Seam Binding & stapled it on. I've also made a double bow with the seam binding.

The image I have coloured with my Copics & added bit of shading with a Prisma pencil. I've also paper pieced her apron & added some shading. I've used a 'Butterfly Delights' Memory Box die on the image matting. The stamps also come with a range of sentiments included, I've used the 'Dance & Be Happy' & some musical notes.
For more Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps look here.

I've used another one of the sentiments inside saying 'From Me'. I've cut 2 corners out using the 
'Macarena Corner' Memory Box Die. I also added Melissa Frances 'Cream Pearls' to the top corner & a Resin Flower to the bottom corner.

Well I think that is it from me why not along to My Crafty Heart for some gorgeous crafty shopping..........sssshhhhh dont tell ya hubsters I dont told to....

Thank you so much for stopping by today it means the world to me, big hugs to all that stop by
