Hello there how are you all? Well its the weekend wooo hoooo. We had Payton last night & although I scheduled my post over at Crafts & Me I forgot to do my own.....ooops, sp I'm running a tad late.

Anyway today I have 2 new stamps for you that Teresa recently released. One is my Hannah Lynn & the other is a new artist Bente Schlick.
Lets start off with my favourite Crafts & Me artist...............
................yes of course Hannah Lynn. This is one of the new 'Colour of Punch Girls' & they all have fabulous tattoo's....I love this big chest tattoo.
The papers are Prima 'Lifetime' which are on offer at the moment over at My Crafty Heart. The lace & hessian are from my stash & the flowers are from WOC.

This is 'Punch Of Colour Girl 2' & I coloured her with Copics & added 'Stickles' to her hair flower & wing.
Colours used are.....
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32, R20 - Skin

This next card shows a stamp by a new artist Bente Schlick.
The papers are Maja Design 'Blackberry Cookies' & they are inked with walnut & machine stitched. Flowers & 'Scalloped Pearl' are from WOC. The flowers were also sprayed with white florist spray to soften them. The shabby seam binding is from LLC.

I have added 'Sweet Thing' charm & the 'Flower' on top of the clock die-cut I made with Delight Clay. Flower mould, clay & charm can all be found at Crafts & Me Store.

The stamp is 'Blissful Moment' & I coloured her with copics & added glitter to her wings & Wine & White fran-tage around the edge.
Unfortunately I cant find the list of copics I used as this was coloured up weeks ago.

The die cut leaves I made with a MB 'Loralei Leaf'. Butterfly is from Etsy.

The stamps used on both of these cards are exclusive to Crafts & Me Store, so pop on over for a fabulous range of stamps & digi images plus lots, lots more.

Saturated Canary Dt Card..........well ok not a card

Hello my lovelies how are you? Well I'm scheduling this as hopefully I'm having a full day in my hobbit.........crafting & then hopefully tidying & sorting out my stuff...........yep its a tip!!

Anyhoo's its time for another challenge over at Saturated Canary & we have a fabberooney one for you this fortnight, its...........
...........yep we want to see you Alter Something. Now this was a toughie for me as I have a cupboard full of stuff to I didnt know what choose lol.
Then I decided to finally do what I've been wanting to do for months & months.

This used to me my alarm clock years ago but I find the damn thing soooooooooo annoying so its not even been wound up for years..............doesnt even match my bedroom........
I only remembered take pics after I started to take it apart excuse it not being in one piece, it was 5 mins before this pic was taken lol...........although it looks better already lol.

It now however matches my bedroom............
First of course I sprayed it as my hubster did me a new place to take pics of my cards etc I now use my light tent to do my spraying comes in very handy.......
Excuse the white spray I had to move them temporarily to spray some flowers with my white florist spray lol. I use to keep an old box that came with a pair of my sons trainers(he has size 11 big feet so big box lol) to do my spraying in but this works so much better.
I have used  my most fave Prima pad for the papers inside. To do this part I glued two pieces of paper together, back to back, I chose black for underneath so when I ripped the paper a bit the black would be rolled over.......I then cut up another sheet to glue at the base, so I had the exact two words to show through. Its about love so had to have these two words ;0)
This is obviously the top & the 'Love' & the front 'Scroll' I made myself with moulds from my stash. The 'Keyhole' is a Melissa Frances. I added Prima Gem Corners to each bell, I cut off the top bit to make them fit nicer. One of the bits I cut off I put on the scroll at the front. I also put a Prima Flower in the middle of the bells.

At the sides I've added some Prima 'Crystal Swirls'. I've also added a 'Clay Heart', a Prima Metal Trinket & a Prima Pearl in the middle of that.

As the clock is based on love as its for mine & hubby;s bedroom I wanted to use an image representing that. So I used the beautiful 'Bride' image..........only now when I've gone over to the shop its not there, so it may be discontinued sorry. I just go with whats in my folder, maybe I should check first lol.
She is coloured with copics........
E11, E21, E00, E000
E29, E27, E23, E21,
 C3, C1, C00
All of the flowers are Prima & also the chipboard clock. The bird I cut using my Marianne die.
The papers I've used are Prima Lyric from My Crafty Heart but Teresa has sold out & Prima have now stopped making glad I brought plenty lol. I have been wanting to do one of these ever since I saw one on Pinterest & I'm actually pleased how my first one turned out. Will definately be making more & hopefully will get better. The one thing I forgot when I did this was to spray the little legs black..........oops will have to rectify that lol.

Pop on over to see all the fabulous makes my teamies did, they will certainly inspire you.
Of course for your instant Saturated Canary fix pop on over to Krista's shop for all your digi will be spoilt for choice.

Thanks for stopping by & all of your lovely comments will be round soon to see you all.
Tatty bye & big squishy hugs to all mmwah

Midweek Magnolia's DT Card - Layers

Hello everyone how are you all? These weeks sure are going fast now...........wont be long for santie woooo hoooo, lurve christmas time. Its not about presents or whether you have much money or not. Its about the magic of it all, spending time with your loved ones & being thankful for all that you do have!!

Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's & this fortnight its a super duper easy one, are you ready..............
............come on who doesnt love to add layers to their cards..........I struggle not adding them lol. 
For mine I finally got around to inking up another stamp from the Summer Breeze collection.
I didnt originally do this for my DT card but I didnt have time to finish the one I originally started..........didnt have time add all of my foofiness............& Vixster here needs her foofiness ;0)

The flowers are a mixture, the end purple ones are from WOC. The larger purple flowers are Magnolia's Dahlia. The white rolled one I made with my Marianne die & the other 2 are from my stash.
I have sprayed all the flowers with white florist spray to soften the colour.

The sentiment I hid behind the cloud on Magnolia's 'Cloudy Tag' & attached a sentiment behind it. The bottom of the sentiment tucks into the single Magnolia cloud, so it looks like a couple of big clouds.

This is with the cloud tag taken out of the Magnolia Cloud die, these I also inked the edges with Pumice stone distress ink. I also added a Tim Holtz metal tag from my stash.
Sorry about this pic & the two above being so dull :0(

The stamp is 'Unsunny Sky Tilda' & I masked her with Magnolia's 'Rainbow With Clouds' & coloured them both with distress ink markers. I added 'Stardust Stickles' to the clouds.
The gorgeous lace is from Live & Love Crafts but I cant remember which one & right now I'm too tired. I've been up all night with Natalie & its now 5am, so I'm off to bed for at least a couple of hours before she gets us up. Links to everything used is at the bottom, the doily is from my stash.

I will be round to see you all in a bit, I'm babysitting Payton again this afternoon as Arjay is at the hospital again, bless him he's being at the hospital every day for the last 3 days. Poor Arjay & Megan :0(

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by & your lovely comments you leave.
Tatty bye & big hugs mmwah
