Saturated Canary DT Card.....well kinda lol

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I hope you are all having this beautiful sunshine that us here in the north east are getting its been so beautiful. I even sat out for an hour in the garden today with payton on a blanket, she just sat there watching the dogs run around the lawn giggling.

Anyway I'm running late yet again this week has just been manic!! We have a new challenge over at Saturated Canary this week & its so easy....
.......I dont use one as I have a Kobo Touch....which I so love so I'm giving this to my step-mum.
Now cus of how hectic it is for me at the mo I made a super-easy & super-quick bookmark.....
 It actually took me longer to colour the image than to make the entire book mark.
The red books belonged to my nan, she loved Agatha Christie & had the whole collection which she left to me when she passed away. My fave was Sparkling Cyanide, I read that one over & over as a kid lol. The top book is a handmade book Craig brought when he was out 1 day about 4 years ago.
The image is 'Olympics' & I cropped her & cut her in an oval shape except the top of her head lol. She was of course coloured with Copics.
E13 E11 E21 E00 E000
E29 E27 E23
R85 R83 R81 RV10
E55 E53 E50
I added a flower where there should be a medal.

You have the image for the front of the book & then this bit goes to what-ever page you are on.
I cropped the image again & lightened her then I added this sentiment over the top of the image from Wee Stamps last year I think it was

I'm actually a wee bit gutted I dont read normal books lol.......
Image of course you can get here at Krista's new fabulous shop which have a few new images, if you havnt been over there yet then where have you been peeps?????
Everything used is from my stash.
The pearl heart you can get from My Crafty Heart in lots of different colours.

Why not pop on over to the challenge blog & look at the girls fab creations. Us girls dont see each others creations til they have been posted as we each email them to Krista so no-one knows what anyone is doing. WellI've just been over & seen that the lovely Bev has made the same style as me.....great minds think alike thats all I have to say lol.

Well I'm off to read my comments from yesterdays post as I've not had time yet & I will be round to visit you all tonight. Thank you for stopping by my sweeties mmwah xoxoxo

I have used one of the new release stamps on my card.

The image was popped onto Mounting Foam Tape.

Wide lace is from my stash........very neglected unfortunately. The die is Memory Box

The flowers are from WOC & I've sprayed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist which was hard to get a photo of. The pearls I made using a Cream Pearl pen from MCH.

I've added Glossy Accents to all the poppies, hard to get a decent piccy of them.

Friendship Warms The Heart

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action, I've not been blogging or crafting at all, this infection really hit me hard & its still not gone so I'm back at the docs this week.

Anyway its my busy week DT wise so I thought I would make a quickie card today to post on my blog to get me in the swing lol. Now this image I brought when they were released & she has been coloured for ages, she really has. Of course those that know me will know the things I love to colour the most is face & hair so these I kinda squeeked & squealed when I saw them & HAD to get them......then forget about them lol.

 I've kept the card quite simple, for me anyway lol. I didnt want to lose this gorgeous image in all my usual foofiness lol.

I've added a gorgeous Prima Brown Fabric Leaf & a flower from Prima 'Londonerry-Coventry Rose' collection. 
I also added Glossy Accents to her eyes, you cant see it very well unfortunately.

The papers are MME 'Paris & Co' I love the colours in this pad. I've inked the edges & matted onto dark brown card.

The image is from Make It Crafty & she is called 'Ashlyn' from the Portrait Collection. I got the entire set but you can buy them separately. I coloured her with Copics & added 2 small
 Melissa Frances pearls to her ears for earrings.

The tag I made myself then added small piece of seam binding & a sentiment from my wood block stamps. Seam binding from my stash.

Paper, pearls, fabric leaf, Glossy Accents & flower are all from My Crafty Heart, pop on over Teresa has added lots more fabulous items to her store.

Thats it for me I have no idea if this will fit into any challenges, I've not had time to look. I will catch up with you all later. Thank you so much for stopping by mmwah loves yas xoxoxox
